“A RELAXED WEEKEND AWAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

My wife and I booked into this hotel for a weekend break Saturday just gone the 18th. I was a little unsure what standard it would be and whether being such an old building the hotel would be a little 'dusty' and out of date. BUT I need not have worried as it was one of the most enjoyable hotel stays that we have ever had in the UK. From the time we arrived to the time we left every single member of staff had a smile and wanted to help make our stay as best they could. Our room - 41 - was lovely, clean, spacious with everything we could possibly need. The bar staff were great fun but courteous and knowledgeable. Our evening meal was first class as was the wine and coffee. Breakfast was a delight with so much choice and all fresh and once again served with a smile and great care. The staff make this hotel a must visit and we will be back in the summer. Management take a bow as your training is obviously working and staff a very big "Thank You" from us for a very happy weekend with you all. Peter & Lorraine Powell

We stayed at Ettington Park to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From the minute we walked through the door we felt special. We were welcomed by Magna(?), the receptionist who immediately started to address us by name and congratulated us on our anniversary. When we got to our room there was a print of the hotel as a gift with a message of congratulations on the back from the general manager - a lovely touch which brought a tear to my eye! The swimming pool and jacuzzi were a lovely treat, followed by a delicious cream tea in the drawing room where Aaron looked after us really well. Dinner was special too - again we were addressed as Mr and Mrs Frankcom, this time by the restaurant manager Pavel, a personal service, which is so rare these days and which we really appreciated. The food and service, by each and every member of staff, was fantastic and topped off by an anniversary message piped in chocolate on my dessert plate. The room was really comfortable and breakfast was delicious - the same staff who had worked so hard the night before again offered a lovely welcoming service. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. Thankyou Ettington Park for helping us to celebrate - we had a wonderful weekend.

From the moment we stepped in to the hotel we were made to feel welcome.
Every member of staff from the concierge to the duty manager were professional, courteous and friendly. The quality of service was second to none. Having stayed at many 4 and 5 star hotels throughout the u.k ,the staff here are without doubt the best we have ever encountered.
The hotel was every bit as amazing as we hoped it would be. Decorated in readiness for christmas was the icing on the cake.
If you plan on staying here we cannot recommend it enough and will definately be back in the very near future.

Room Tip: Next visit although our room was lovely, we will be requesting to stay in main building which was no...

Stayed for one night with my wife as a last minute short break 10/1/14. The hotel is beautiful, on theoutside aswell as the inside. The food was delicious. The staff really helpful, polite and attentive. If you need a break then this must be a serious contender because we will definately be returning. I have two regrets....1. I hadnt taken swimming shorts so missed out on the indoor pool...2. we booked through Lastmiute thinking we had a good deal but have since learnt the hotel was offering a better deal....schoolboy error for not checking.
Didnt see any ghosts though.

Room Tip: Ground floor not in the main house but still remakable room.

We were at a wedding here on at he end of 2013 and stayed 3 nights everything was great, wedding party had the hotel to themselves for the day of the wedding, staff were excellent all very helpful. Only hiccough we had was we were not in the main building and were not told that there was a connection by going upstairs then coming back downstairs in the main building so we got damp a few times going between the buildings the only way we were aware of!

My husband and I spent another night at this beautiful hotel on November 21st to celebrate our 43rd anniversary. The hotel knew this was a special time for us and did everything they could to make it extra special. We were upgraded to a suite, flowers were in our room for us to take home. The food and service were superb. Cannot thank the hotel enough for what they did to make this so special it is always a pleasure to stay there. The hotel and surroundings are beautiful and hope to return shortly.

Room Tip: If something isn't right, ask, they are are always happy to oblige.

Booked as a Christmas present that we got to share with family. Easy to find and set in beautiful grounds, oozing history and intrigue. We were met with a warm welcome, arrived far too early for check in but we were allowed to leave our luggage, which on our return to the hotel had been taken to our rooms. Facilities were very good, fascinated by the ironing board and full size iron. We take all our own toiletries but it was well stocked, huge white fluffy towels and robes. It is an historic building thus retains its charm and character, so may not please those looking for swish contemporary décor. Our only dining experience was breakfast which was both refined and delicious. The hotel is away from it all with a pub just a short drive towards Stratford, however we did discover that the area doesn't have pubs/restaurants that serve food Sunday evening and after deciding to go in to Stratford many establishments were fully booked and wouldn't consider squeezing us in even if we ate fast and disappeared quickly. However, the setting is perfect and we are more than glad we chose to stay at Ettington Park.
