Stayed overnight for a wedding. Grounds were pretty but quality of service was poor, particularly on light of the excessive cost. No soap in the bathroom and had to insist that some be delivered. No hot water in the morning and only received a 20% discount when we insisted (at another hotel with a similar problem we were given a... More

I stayed at Fanhams hall for a friend's wedding in August 2014. The experience was a really lovely one from the person helping with our booking to front of house staff, all staff were friendly and helpful. I requested a quiet room away from the noise of the reception as I am pregnant and my needs were met. The buffet... More

We stayed at this hotel to attend a wedding but also the day before to have a relaxing time and a nice romantic break. We booked our room 14 months in advance and specifically requested a suite in a quiet area, stressing that it would be our first break from our children so we didn't want a noisy room. We... More

Dear 8661356 Thank you for your constructive feedback which I read with great disappointment. May I apologise for the noise created by other hotel guests which were staying at the hotel for a wedding – especially so close to your room in the early hours of the morning once the wedding celebrations had finished. Having spoken to our reception manager... More

Stayed here for a friends wedding. Lovely room, staff were excellent(especially the young lads behind the bar). You have a great young team. I did accidentally set of the smoke alarm with the toaster in the restaurant. Maybe that needs to be looked at? I think it went off in whole of the hotel??(ooops). Keep it up!!;)

The superior double room was so spacious, I went with my 2yr old & you hardly noticed the travel cot in the room. Very comfortable room with a sofa, tv & a writing desk. The bed was huge! Tasteful traditional decor in the room. Staff were very accomodatong & friendly. The breakfast was unbelievable, everything you could possibly want laid... More

The gardens at this hotel are exceptionally nice, well maintained and would be perfect to enjoy on a lovely sunny day. However, the 'hotel' isn't like a hotel at all. It is used as a venue for Weddings and conferences. This is obvious because, on arrival, they couldn't even rustle up a simple sandwich. We asked if we could order... More

Dear Valerious Thank you for your recent review and for your kind comments about our Grade II listed gardens which we get such great feedback about. However, I am sorry your expectations were not met regarding your request for something to eat when you arrived – this is certainly not our usual standard of service and for the quality of... More

Brilliant stay, we attended a friends wedding and really had a lovely time. The gardens are amazing, simply breath taking and very well maintained. All staff were friendly/helpful, in fact the best staff I have come across in a hotel, Jenny on reception went out her way to help. The wedding ran smoothly and everyone had a good time, the... More

I just stayed at this hotel with some friends for a wedding. The food was very good. Very nice breakfast, but we experienced very poor customer service, especially at the reception desk. We had some questions when we checked out as the room's fees weren't the one agreed over the phone when we booked and one of the lady at... More

Dear Adele Thank you for your feedback posted. I was delighted to read you enjoyed your friend’s wedding and especially the food which was served. However, I was very disappointed to read about the confusion on checkout regarding the room rate, which very rarely happens but I am sorry that we did not rectify the situation as quickly as you...

Strip away the setting and this hotel would struggle to sell rooms at anything above Travel Lodge rates. I'm sure all the rowdy wedding guests like it especially the ones that don't get out much, get stinking drunk, loud and obnoxious however for anything else think twice. It does have a good conference facility and no complaints about the food... More

Brilliant atmosphere, with a touch of class and elegance. Friendly, very helpful staff, who look after your every need. Exquisite food, with that touch of luxury. Loved it! Have been before, as had my 40th birthday in the Karaoke room and stayed overnight...luxurious and very large room...in fact, it was the honeymoon suite! My 41st birthday we celebrated with an...
