I struggle to write this review as I know from reading the many reviews and owners responses that this is very much a labour of love for them so I'm sorry to give an overall negative review. Unfortunately whilst the building has fantastic bones and you can totally imagine the grandieur once it is done, its going to take major... More

We met family for our yearly reunion. This year we chose to have Christmas in July lunch at Fountaindale Grand Manor. From the time we walked in the door we were treated as VIP's every staff member we came across couldn't be more friendly or helpful We were helped with placing our gifts for family in a safe place along...

The hotel had a Christmas Lunch happening throughout July, devonshire and high tea rooms featuring wonderful open fires, Christmas decoration room, lolly shop and gift shop. Possibly 200 people present... More

The rudest most unhelpful person running the place (carol). The simplest request was invariably responded to with a no. The building and location are fabulous even if run down. The "buffet" breakfast was watery scrambled eggs, poor quality bacon and stale cereal. Instant coffee only. The place was overpriced but if Carol had've been more accommodating and less incompetent I... More

We took a trip to the Southern Highlands today and stopped off at Fountaindale Manor for a Devonshire tea as we have done in the past. My memories were not disappointed. We had great coffee and hot chocolate, beautiful homemade, warm scones, fresh whipped cream and plenty of home made raspberry jam! Yum! This house is just charming and the... More

It is such a pity this old building has been left to rot. I have stayed in places a lot older and heaps better maintained. It looks like a cheap b & b in London that you pay half the price to stay. I hope somebody helps this old girl out, it could be an amazing place. The staff are... More

I struggle with these types of reviews and have taken time to write this response so I get write it not from the heart but in a commonsense type of view. Ignorance comes to mind when people do not do do their homework and find out facts before they write their reviews. Also honesty and writing all the facts goes... More

How anyone could dislike this grand old lady is beyond me. From the moment you turn into the drive, it is magical. I was skeptical after reading the reviews and wondered how bad it would be, but I LOVED it. It is very grand indeed. The reception staff are VERY friendly (I guess if you are nice, they will be...

The best and only good thing I can say about this place is the gardens are gorgeous. Lovely to stroll through and sit a read a book which is exactly what I did to escape the mouldy unpleasant room and unfriendly staff inside the 'grand manor'. I love an old building with original features and its own quirkiness so felt... More

went there with friends for Christmas in July - it was freezing! no heating unless you asked for it, the open fires were totally inefficient, even when the place was full. The people, food were great, and the accommodation was fairly basic.
