Recently attended a wedding reception at Dovecliff Hall and left with very mixed feelings about the place. First off the place looks fantastic - a fantastic house in a beautiful location surrounded by wonderful gardens - everybody had a fantastic time - especially the bride and groom. The food was adequate - what I've come to expect of food on... More

My sister and I booked Afternoon Tea to celebrate our Mums 70th Birthday with her friends. We were met on arrival and shown to a table by a waitress. I asked her if we had a menu to choose from and she politely informed me the chef decides but its usually salmon, ham, cheese and cucumber sandwiches and one other... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, lovely clean room staff very welcoming. Beautiful building and surroundings. Only down point wall/ceiling seemed very thin we could hear the people above us which wasn't pleasent.

...by the time we arrived we were just looking forward to getting to bed after a decent cup of tea. Our room was spacious,clean and comfortable and easily accessed on the flat. The night porter was very helpful; carrying my heavy bag (thank you) and rustling us up a jug of milk so we didn't have to spin out the... More

40 Masons arrived on Sunday 19th April for a planned luncheon. The assistance given in the planning was excellent and flexible. On the day we were hosted very well, with politeness and skill. The food was of a high standard and was received hot and fresh. The premises were beautiful, the staff were friendly we could not have asked for... More

My wife and I visited Dovecliff Hall to attend a friends wedding. We were initially impressed by its picturesque setting and period look. We were unfortunately let down as soon as we were greeted. We had been told to check in from 13.00 and for a wedding starting at 15.30 this have us time to check in, change into our... More

Thank you for posting your recent review. Firstly, we have to say that to title your review 'wedding disaster' is completely misleading and unfair. The ceremony, day and evening reception went along without a hitch and we have received thanks from the bride and groom to say so. The check-in difficulties were as a result of a misunderstanding whereby the... More

We booked the Dovecliff Hall Hotel as our wedding venue because the hotel is beautiful and set within very nice grounds. As some of our guests came from abroad, we also booked all the bedrooms on the night of our wedding as well as several that were booked for two nights. From the start of our preparations, our wedding co-ordinator... More

Having read some bad reviews I went to Dovecliff Hall with low expectations but I was very pleasantly surprised. Lovely, quirky and totally relaxing. This hotel is a beautiful 18th century country house and it feels and looks like one. If you're after ultra-modern then this is not for you. The staff were great, it was peaceful and calm despite...

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. It would appear that there was a misunderstanding which led the Bride & Groom to inform their guests that they could all check in at 1pm. All Bride & Grooms are informed that early check-ins cannot be guaranteed particularly when we have been full the night before, as in this... More
