I went for a wedding in the autumn so I can only comment on the reception and food - I had been told previously that the food was not good and I was certainly not impressed with the buffet - very basic and some of it stale, perhaps it was a budget choice but it should have been fresh at... More

Following on from the previous comments made regarding poor pre-dinner service, I was one of the party of four dining (actually it was my birthday celebration). On a positive note we could not fault the young girl 'filing in' behind the bar, as she was most helpful despite her obvious lack of experience, nor could we fault the service given... More

Damp musty smell throughout corridors was not a good start that was thankfully for a one night stay. Small room with a view of the front of the hotel. Blinds that did not close. Hole in bathroom door. Dirty soap holder in the shower. The wrong room number on the telephone. Inexperienced staff in restaurant that forgot to bring correct... More

We dined as a foursome at the hotel restaurant a few evenings ago, as a birthday treat. However from the moment of our arrival we felt as if we were invisible. On arrival we searched to find a member of staff in order to confirm our arrival and dining time. We then made our way to the bar for pre-dinner... More

Originally we visited in May 2014. We had problems with our room on a fully booked night, so were offered another nights stay free of charge, so waited to write our review. The hotel is lovely, the grounds are lovely. The young girl on reception check in both times was good. The rooms are great size, even the basic one... More

This was a surprise birthday treat by my two friends. I had never been here before but always wanted to and it was perfect, the grounds are stunning, as it was my birthday the waiter gave me a glass of champagne which was a lovely touch, the food was wonderful and the staff professional and really nice. I would definitely... More

We booked a few days here just to get away. We had eaten in the restaurant on previous occasions and like what we saw so decided to stay when next in the area. The grounds are vast with lakeside walks and wildlife all to see. There is an outside pool which seemed popular with some guests but would be a... More

I got married at the Powdermills 5 years ago and wanted somewhere to celebrate my parents 65th Wedding Anniversary-they offered me the use of the Drawing Room and Georgian Room and we had a traditional high tea for all the family-everything from the sandwiches, scones, jam and clotted cream and an assortment of homemade cakes, all superb and so fresh....

We visited this hotel 5 years ago and liked it ok but the service and our rooms were average. This time round we had the most fantastic time. We arrived unexpectedly after a hideous experience at The Cooden Beach hotel 15 minutes away where we had to leave straight after checking in. Powdermills couldn't have been more of a contrast....

Personally when writing a review I always find it is difficult to start it off? But not this time! As everyone from the owner of Powdermills~ and Michelle Goad the Manageress to the restaurant manager and Luke who is a junior waiter in the "Orangery Restaurant" is so polite and friendly that it made our stay in room (6) for...
