“well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2007

Just got back from a 2 night stay in an executive double room.
This is a very nice and comfortable hotel and a definite cut above some 4 stars i,ve stayed in. Being fussy the only and main gripe i would have is that there were some conferences going on which meant that at times there were some 'communal' rooms that we couldn't visit but i guess this is the way the hotel makes their money. Overall we really enjoyed are stay. Four star is about right. The staff bar none were fantasic and helpful and no question was to much trouble.

My husband and I stay in hotels all around the world. This was by far the best and most interesting place we have ever stayed. It is absolutely stunning and the service is bar none! It is priced unbelieveably well. A Must!!!

We booked this hotel for our anniversary. we visitied Stratford upon Avon during the day and arrived at the hotel at 2:30pm. We were then told check in was at 3pm so we could have a drink or go for a walk. We managed to do both as the room didnt become available until 3:45pm. Even then we had to ask to see if it was ready. I feel this isnt the service for a 4 star hotel.

The room was in the old part of the building (No.4) and was nice although was shabby in some areas. Handles missing from the drawers and lino in the bathroom.

We used the pool and sauna which were nice but again a little unclean in some areas. Previous comments about the pool being cold are also true.

We called reception and booked a cab into Stratford for dinner. Our table was booked for 7:30pm and we asked for a cab at 7pm to enable us to have plenty of time. We went to reception at 7pm and was told a cab hadnt been booked. Eventually we managed to get a cab for 7:25pm and had to rush our dinner. The manager apologised for the level of service but seemed he didnt know what to do about it. He parting comment was 'we will have a bottle of bubbly in the room when you get back'. A nice thought and it did make things slightly better.

Breakfast was nice but the scrambled eggs would not be recommended.

Another moan about the service was on arrival I asked for a newspaper for the following morning....I was not surprised that it never arrived!

Overall a nice looking hotel that could do with improvements. The service was poor and it was all of the small things that let it down. If I was paying for a travel lodge I would accept these short comings but for the price I feel it was not value for money.

We have written to the manager and will update this review on their reply.

For those of you who are wondering whether Ettington Park is a good choice for a break/ surprise or just a night away from the 'hustle and bustle', I would certainly recommend it for any of these. The property is exquisite and extremely individual, the surroundings are truly relaxing and beautiful. You can go for a nice walk around the grounds, stop for a cheeky drink in the lounge or simply choose from one of the dvd's they have in their library to watch in your room. The rooms are equipped with everything you could wish for and are very clean and modern. The food is fantastic whether you are ordering room service or eating in the restaurant, nothing is too much trouble for the staff. It was nice to go to a hotel which lived up to my expectations (us ladies do seem to have high levels of these as you men know)!

I loved Ettington and would certainly return again!

What a beautifull elegent hotel. We were given this as a christmas present by relatives 2006 and booked may 2007. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel at home, very relaxed informal atmosphere, nothing is too much trouble for the staff who go out of there way to make your stay a one to remember. Was lovely to walk round the grounds and sit in the sun on the terrace drinking coffee.Lovely spotless clean rooms and very comfortable beds, breakfast was very good too. Didn't want to leave as felt very relaxed, would love to come back soon. Dont be put off by negative reviews, must be very fussy people.Defaintly a 10/10 for us.

After considering many different venues for our wedding, including Coombe Abbey and Ragley Hall, my wife and I opted for Ettington Park Hotel. It was perfect:

The grounds are immaculate, the house is stunning, the views are beatiful and the food is top class. But it's crowning glory, without doubt, is the staff.

Welcoming, attentive, professional, inobtrusive and, something that is sadly missing in many hotels, friendly.

If you're visiting the UK and and are looking for a base near to Stratford, then Ettington Park is probably the best example of how wonderful Warwickshire is.

My wife and I will be going back there for many years to come.

Having recently organised a conference at Ettington Park, I can honestly say that the staff and management are way above the norm!

Nothing was too much trouble for them, even when various last minute changes were requested.

The bedrooms are extremely well appointed and intimate, the food superb and the hands on approach from the General Manager extremely refreshing!

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Ettington Park for a business or leisure stay! You will not be disappointed!
