Reception and hotel staff were very welcoming, polite and informative, our room was clean, spacious and comfortable and as requested we were allocated a garden room with a lovely view. Breakfast was buffet style with a selection of cereals, fruit and continental breakfast plus orders were... More

I managed to rope my husband into doing a spa day with me, so he could see why I constantly rave about them! I'm disappointed that this was the location I picked and I usually get it so right! The Autumn Glow Spa Dy package included a 2 course lunch, 30 minute treatment and full use of the facilities. -... More

We came here for 2 nights as a family of 4 with another family of 4. We had a brilliant stay and we're all struck by how brilliant the team were in both the hotel and restaurant with all of the staff friendly and professional. We ate in the restaurant both nights and found the supervisor, Alex, and everybody in... More

We stayed here for Valentines night and although they were fully booked, the hotel did not seem busy like we expected. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and made us feel very welcome. Food was excellent - they ran out of rump steak but offered sirloin at no extra charge. We felt the drinks were a little over priced.... More

We stayed at Craxon Wood for one night for dinner, bed and breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Service could not be faulted and every member of staff that we spoke too was polite and helpful throughout our stay. Room was clean and tidy with nice finishing touches such as a complimentary bottle of water as well as bathroom takeaways.... More

Great venue for a short break with the girls from the family - sisters, aunts, cousins. Spa treatments were loved by all and the food in the restaurant was wonderful. Very relaxing break in a good location easy to reach by road or rail.

Visited with 2 friends on Sunday for a spa day. We each enjoyed use of the spa and a scone and tea. The spa facilities are lovely and our cream tea was delicious. The only downside was that we are asked to share a locker between 3 of us in a small locker room with only one shower. When I... More
