A grand period Manor House hotel in an unquestionable beautiful setting, I expected more for the money. A double room with breakfast set me back £105. Ok we're not taking The Ritz here but you'd expect something more. Arrived to find a wedding in full swing. After flagging down someone to check us in, a rather sleepy lady checked us... More

The venue was great, the grounds are very nice and ideal for a wedding. Unfortunately, we found the rooms some what disappointing for the price charged. The service at breakfast was awful, on our second day we waited 15mins before our order was taken and then at least a further half an hour for it to be served. There just... More

My wife and I found The Upper House on-line , what a gem of a find. The hotel is clean, and in a good way slightly quirky. The bedroom was lovely with dual aspect views over wonderfully kept gardens, its well worth a walk around. The food was good and pretty good value. We would certainly stay again.

My husband and I took his mother for afternoon tea on 1st August 2015 as a birthday treat. We did initially want to go to Crewe Hall and were disappointed to find that they only do them during the week. Having been to a wedding at the Upper House we knew that it was a lovely property so decided to... More

My Husband and I have just returned from a 1 night stay at The Upper House,which was booked on a bed and breakfast basis. We arrived mid afternoon and our first impressions of the Hotel was very good. There were guests arriving to Celebrate an Occasion of some kind, as I do believe the Hotel hosts various Meal options, but... More

So glad all other hotels around Stoke were full otherwise we'd never have chanced on TUH as a very late booking to attend a function at Trentham Gardens. No hesitation in recommending this superb country hotel - from the welcome and help from Dawn, the receptionist and the bar and breakfast staff to the delightful room with uninterrupted countryside views....

This was a surprise afternoon tea arranged by some friends for my 65th birthday . The house is situated in some beautiful grounds which allows for some fabulous photo opportunities so would imagine perfect for weddings. The food was excellent for our party of 10 with a lovely assortment of sandwiches, cakes and warm scones complete with fresh cream and... More

The house was built by a grandson of the founder of Wedgewood pottery, and features a modern triptych painting of the first owner's daily life, in the dining room. The interior is suitably 'country house', with an impressive panelled staircase, and real furniture (if perhaps a bit too much furniture in the guest lounge...). But it's been well renovated and...

Took my family for afternoon tea at the Upper House. It is a lovely building in a fantastic spot. The tea was wonderful and they happily catered for a vegetarian and someone with a nut allergy. Lots of delicious cakes, warm scones and lashings of tea. The only criticism was from my daughter who thought there should be more jam!... More

I went here with my husband for a birthday treat ( from my son & daughter -in-law ) . We couldn't fault anything...... The service was great, the staff were very pleasant and accommodating and the food was gorgeous. We felt very relaxed and were not rushed at all. Would DEFINITELY go again .......
