Two friends and I visited Pontlands Park for afternoon tea a couple of Wednesdays ago. We had such a brilliant time! Firstly the room in which tea is taken is beautiful. We were sat on a middle table with comfortable sofas and chairs. Our waitress was a young, blond girl and she couldn't have been more helpful. Nothing was too... More

This is one of those little gem hideaways that you want to tell everyone about but that also remains a very nice secret. It has fabulous facilities including indoor and outdoor pools and jacuzzi and allows guests,members and hotel accommodation guests to enjoy them. It's not cheap, but it's certainly not as much as some of the other hotel and... More

We also stayed the night in a standard bedroom in the newer part of the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised at the size and high standard... More

We stayed at Pontlands for one night. Check in was smooth and fuss free and our room was ready an hour early which was great. Room 57 was spacious and well appointed. We requested a quiet room as there were 2 functions taking place that weekend and we didn't want to be disturbed. Our room was the furthest away and... More
