Stayed solo for two nights while visiting family. Friendly staff in all areas of the hotel. Room was lovely and spacious with a beautiful view. Leisure facilities excellent. Didn't try the restaurant but had a bar meal which was quite good. Beautiful setting and easy to get to.

Definitely recommend this hotel for the food alone.. The rooms and whole place need modernising but are clean and comfortable and cheap for the area. The grounds are really nice with a play park for kids and tennis courts golf course if you have time. Gym and pool both small and have seen better days but again good for price..... More

Spend a business meeting here with few nights, pool house rooms were nice and quiet. Did not try the swimming pool facilities so cannot comment on those. Food in the restaurant was good, strong breakfast and really nice deserts over lunch. Tried once the bar, burger was ok. Quite interesting building as it is so complex and several times new... More

Booked this 4 star hotel, as a much needed, relaxing night away. As new parents, the first time we had been away together in 10 months from our baby. All we wanted, was a quiet nights sleep, a relaxing swim, Jacuzzi and steam room. Arrived, at 14:10 to check in after a long drive, ROOM NOT READY!, told to wait... More

Stayed over 2 nights (midweek) whilst working away in the area. Hotel situated in beautiful surroundings with very well kept gardens. Inside, the hotel is quite dated - mustard yellow corridors and dark wood. To compound this, a lack of air con made my 2 night stay slightly uncomfortable due to the warm nights (although there was a fan in... More

Dear Sd242015, Thank you for reviewing us here at Trip advisor. Blunsdon House has evolved over the course of 50 years and as such incorporates both traditional and modern design elements. Approximately 70% of our room stock has air conditioning and reading your review we feel that an executive room in the more modern Pavilion may well have better suited... More

This hotel is really, really nice. There is a 9-hole golf course, a walking trail, a place for children to play, etc, etc. We stayed in the pavilion. The room was large and the bed comfortable. The only problem was the air/heating. Only heat comes from the system, although there is a "cool" setting on the control. They switch it... More
