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....

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 .......

Visited the restaurant for a family members birthday this evening. The restaurant itself is decorated nicely with views of the gardens. We had the fish platter and the meat platter for starter between 5 of us. I had the beef and crem brûlée afterwards. It was a really good meal, attentive service and lovely food. 3 courses with bottles of... More

The room was called Bridgwater we would not recommend this room as it is located near some kind of boiler room all you could hear all... More
