My husband and I stayed in the executive suite for one night last weekend. The suite itself is very spacious, comfortable and clean and the grounds of the guesthouse are really beautiful. The only reason I haven't given 5-stars is that the breakfast service on the Saturday morning was incredibly slow. We had appointments in the area and we did... More

The most enjoyable holiday possible. I stayed there with my beautiful lady for two weeks who had been there on two occasions before. The greeting by Lisa and Sheila was so warm and friendly. The rooms were beautiful and clean. The meals were scrumptious. The service from the staff was not only of the highest professional standard but made you... More

With no room at the inn at our usual hotel for our annual croquet pilgrimage, we ended up at Willowbrook - and what a blessing it was all round. Really lovely, welcoming and helpful staff, comfortable and elegantly-decorated room, excellent food - and walking distance to the croquet club. Even the building works going on next door could not detract... More

Wow, once again we have graced the garden forest that is Willowbrook Country House. Where does Willowbrook get its staff from? We arrived on a Friday night, for a full weekend stay and we were met at the door by Conrad. Now, Conrad is not your average concierge by any means. He has the genuine likeability and supreme efficiency of... More

We have spent a wonderful week in this small and friendly hotel. Lisa and her staff ( especially Maggie, the good soul of the house) are so friendly and very helpful. They made our stay unforgettable! We are sure, we'll come back! Breakfast is very good.

Willowbrook is a perfect example of how trip advisor should be a mandatory aspect to every savvy travelers planning process. Even though we were 7000 miles away in the USA when we planned this the staff at WB was exactly what we expected and more. Maggie was the perfect waitress, Lisa, Conrad, Maggie, Sheila and Charlene were all more than... More
