I have stayed at The Upper House as a hotel guest, eaten in the restaurant numerous times, and I even got married here! Every single visit has been nothing short of fantastic. I visited the restaurant this evening for my wife's birthday and we had a great time. The restaurant was not busy but we did arrive at around 8.15pm.... More

Family reunion to celebrate my mothers birthday. The kitchen was busy with several groups dining in the house at Sunday lunchtime Menu seems too large to be freshly cooked and the staff we spoke with seemed inexperienced. A scallops and tuna starter was returned, rather than seared in a pan they were undercooked and grey in colour, I wondered if... More

Thank you for your review and it was useful to talk through your comments with you on Tuesday. I'm sorry to hear about your disappointment on such a special occasion. We were incredibly busy on Sunday so apologise that the service was slower than normal and that the food didn't meet our usual standard. I have spoke to the Head... More

Attended a wedding here recently. Hotel is beautiful, bar area small fir the amount of guests drinks overpriced as usual in a hotel. No seats available between service and the function room until much later which then ended up with us carrying our own from the conservatory. Beautiful wedding but needs better seating.

Went here to visit a cousin who lived nearby the hotel. The hotel is about 50mins drive from Manchester airport where we flew into. We had 2 rooms as there were 2 couples travelling. Our room was a little dated but sufficed for the weekend, the other room that my sister & brother in law had had been refurbished and... More

This has been difficult review to write because although the location, service and staff were brilliant there were some things that were not right. However they did not spoil a wonderful week-end. We booked this hotel because friends were having their 50th wedding anniversary in one of the several function rooms. When we got to our room there was a... More

We had a lovely day and evening yesterday and last night. The receptionist, bar staff and waiting on staff were really friendly. The restaurant meal was one of the best I have had for a long time. The chef came out to personally apologise for the slight delay in between starter and main course, but this was no problem as... More
