We were the only guests staying... More

This was our fourth visit and the hotel is just as wonderful as ever and has to be one of my favourites BUT AND A BIG BUT the attention to detail from the staff is nowhere near as good as previous times and I noticed this thread running through a few other comments. Beginning also to see more negative comments.... More

We found this by chance and booked a 1 night stay with dinner and breakfast. What a lovely place. The room was fairly recently decorated and was very nice. The shower could have been better and perhaps some extraction in the bathroom but it really was very nice. In the Orangery restaurant we were given the sampler menu which at... More

It is sometimes a big disappointment returning to an establishment you have previously enjoyed only to find that things had changed over the months for the worse. We needn't have worried - my wife and I treated ourselves to a dinner with an overnight stay and breakfast. We had a friendly welcome and were shown to our lovely light &... More

This is the second time we have visited the Powdermills. We decided to return and our first stay was near on perfect but this time we were very disappointed. We stayed in a room at the back of the hotel this time and immediately upon entering the room you could smell the mould. Because of the smell we decided to... More

We had mothers day Sunday lunch here to day cannot fault the food but that little extra attention to detail was just missing, staff were not ready when we arrived, didn't take coats, bill was incorrect, but overall the staff were very friendly and it is a beautiful location.

I first visited PowderMills with my late mother some 28 years ago when Julie Cowpland was running it as a 3 bedroomed bed , breakfast and dinner country house hotel. This was a nostalgic trip bringing my husband for a two night break. How PowderMills has grown!! We had a lovely room on the ground floor with our own front... More

We stayed at PowderMills for two nights and enjoyed the woodland surroundings, peaceful nights and tasty food in their restaurant. We stayed in the Wellington Suite complete with sunken bath. From the moment we entered to be greeted by a real fire with the sweet smell of wood smoke, we were made to feel welcome and relaxed. Only a couple... More
