Second visit for lunch this year. First visit was great and our second experience certainly did not disappoint. The hotel is so welcoming even on a damp and drizzly day. Had pre lunch drinks in the bar and then a lovely 3 course lunch in the beautiful restaurant. We had 2 guests with us and the total for pre lunch... More

My wife and I attended a university reunion. We travelled on a Friday and learned the hard way that the traffic is lighter in Shropshire where we live than south of London on a Friday afternoon. We did however eventually arrive and met our colleagues. I had booked a junior suite and it was excellent. A good sized four poster... More

Powder Mills Country House Hotel is in a superb setting in its own extensive grounds with a large lake on the outskirts of Battle, approached down a winding tree lined drive taking you over a bridge at the narrower part of the lake to the front of the hotel. The house dates back to the 17th century and takes its... More

We spent just one night at this hotel on a Secret Escapes deal of sparkling wine, bed and breakfast. The room we were given, 16, was a spacious room, however, one had to walk around the bathroom to get to the bed area (yes, the bathroom was actually built in to the room) we've never seen anything quite like it...

We had a high tea bought for us as a birthday present. The first sign of something not being right was when I asked how many sandwiches we could have. Usually, with a high tea, there is a selection. "One," I was told, "Cut into four pieces." Mmm, not what we expected. So we chose our sandwich filling and waited.... More

Staying with a wedding party I think we had the last room so others may have been better but our room was very damp, black mould on parts of the ceiling and walls. You could feel the damp while in the room and this lead to a very bad night's sleep and having to have clothing cleaned that had been... More

My husband and I recently celebrated our 70th Birthdays at the Orangery Restaurant in the Powdermills Hotel. The cuisine was of a 5 star standard and all the staff were very courteous and helpful. We had 31 guests and were seated in the Orangery extension where we were very comfortable. All our guests were delighted with the venue and we... More

We stayed at the hotel for a few nights. It is very well appointed and full of character,and the grounds are lovely including two lakes and an open air swimming pool. The staff are very welcoming. Our room was lovely. The breakfasts are superb and the service is good. The evening meal was a different story with very slow service.... More
