Had a traditional afternoon tea with family including a toddler (not quite 3). There was a slight mix up with our booking with one extra tea reserved (toddler counted as an adult) and that was served (and we paid for it) but it was all so nice we enjoyed the extra food (although we didn't need it) and didn't make...

Stayed here for 4 nights. Had cold shower's every morning because heating wasn't working. Complaining made no difference. Bar food was OK. Good location to Ware but that's about it. Would never stay here again. Absolute rip off in my opinion.

A great looking place with lots of history and a main building with good character. Clearly catering for conferences and weddings so functional bedrooms which seemed to be too hot or too cold, but ok for a one night stay. Decent break out areas and good facilities for business type stuff. The food was a bit disappointing but the service... More

My partner had booked a superior double for my 50th birthday but he was disappointed in the room, although it was clean and a nice room, it wasn't in the main hall and he thought he'd booked a room overlooking the gardens. He spoke to the receptionist, Sophie, who very kindly upgraded us to the Chestnut Room which was in... More

I stayed here for a family Christmas party. Was a lovely hotel and a brilliant party. The lady on reception who showed us to our room was very helpful and ever so polite, I think her name was Viviana. She really welcomed us into the hotel. Would definitely stay here again!!!!

This place is in a stunning location surrounded by fields. The grounds are large and peaceful. Great place to unwind. My room wasn't big but had a large walk in shower which was a huge bonus. Breakfast was buffet style with a great choice. I would say this hotel is luxurious but it will show in your wallet. Would stay... More
