huge rooms though probably need updating, and beautiful setting made this a nice place to stop for the night near stansted airport; the grounds are wonderful and you feel away from it all despite being near a major airport and motorway. Public areas are grand and the statue of the Marchesa Cassati in the foyer made my day. the breakfast... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights recently. The hotel is impressive and has a lot of potential. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The real issue was the floor boards creaked like something out of a horror movie and we could hear every movement from the other guests both on our floor and that above. Unfortunately... More

Having had good recommendations from friends I had great expectations. 10 of us booked with 3 of the couples upgrading to better rooms. They were lovely and strongly advised if you are going there. We remaining two couples did not upgrade - BIG MISTAKE!!!. One room... More

We had a lovely time at Down Hall on Easter weekend for our fourth visit to the beautiful hall hotel. This time, though the pool wasn't open (a bit disappointing), we were able to enjoy the extensive grounds and play some lawn chess. Gorgeous time to be there with the trees in full bloom. It was quite bustling this time,... More

The Down Hall Hotel is a wonderful country house set in extensive and beautifully kept grounds. Our room was in the main building on the second floor and overlooked the rear gardens and fountain. It was light, clean and comfortable and nicely maintained by the housekeeping staff every day. The ensuite bathroom was a good size and had good quality... More

Staff very kind and helpful, and it's a lovely place, I understand they are revamping the rooms, so we took on the chin the alarming decor, it was tired but comfy, red sofa and bedding teamed with a pink and yellow/grey four poster and very dated flouncy curtained enormous windows overlooking a fab view, let down by cigarette butts littering...

How can anyone write a bad review about this place? I read the reviews before we booked and was a bit indecisive but why?? Fantastic building/place, beautiful beautiful surroundings and grounds to walk the dogs and lovely food. Friendly staff what more can you ask for...

I visited Down Hall for 1 night for work purposes. Ordinarily i'd choose a faceless chain hotel where you know exactly what will be behind the door when you walk in, but decided i'd try somethng different and book Down Hall. The approach to the hotel sets the scene, a wonderful countryside driveway before you see the grandure of the... More

This is an imposing looking hotel both inside and out. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean though noisy doors are a bit of a problem and you have to jump out of bed and run across the room to take your morning call as the phone is nowhere near the bed. On checking in, reception made a complete mess and... More
