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

The service was very good and the meal very enjoyable. There was a well attended function taking place in the conservatory but... More

We visited on Thursday 2nd Octoberw. Our son attended here for his prom in the summer from Newcastle under Lyme school and we were impressed with the building and surroundings. As we had both recently had birthdays we decided to treat ourselves to lunch. My wife ordered the king scallops off the menu I had the mushroom risotto. The risotto... 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

The title says it all really. I was booked for 5 days as a last minute business trip working with Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service. Rather than book directly through a comparison site as we normally do I arranged for the booking to be made directly at the hotel by my company and at £100+ per night was not the... More

Afternoon tea on the terrace made a fitting start to our mid-week stay at this lovely old house. Built more than 160 years ago for one of pottery legend Josiah Wedgwood's grandsons who wanted to get away from the hurly burly of life in Stoke's industrial centre, it provides a stylish and peaceful getaway just a few minutes' drive from...

My friend had her wedding reception and evening reception here and a lot of family and friends stayed over at the hotel. Its a lovely independent hotel with excellent quality food. The main meal was exceptional where normally when catering for large numbers the quality drops here there was no such complaint - all was perfectly served and hot. Lovely... More

We visited last week for the afternoon teas which was for a birthday treat. The house is stunning and set in lovely grounds. There was wedding taking place so the entrance was very crowded and we were mistaken for guests. We informed a member of staff that we had booked for the tea and went to sit in the library... More

If you have been looking for a wedding venue and have considered the Upper House, look no further. I honestly don't think you could beat it! We held my daughters wedding here on Sunday, they had 3 weddings over the bank holiday weekend and I have to admit that I was worried, that ours being the last, they may have... More
