“Midweek break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Stayed here for two nights while attending a Punch Taverns roadshow. Lovely building,nice room and very helpful staff. Will definitely return,only slight criticism at breakfast we ordered poached eggs and they were almost raw, the head of breakfast dinning collected the plate but didn't enquire why they were untouched.

The buildings are grand, very grand... and the room was lovely.. but best of all is the communal space here. A large drawing room attached to a very stylish bar... Truly somewhere to relax with a good book and chill.

I would have liked the restaurant better if I wasn't dieting... but it was pretty perfect...

This is the crown in the De Vere group... I've stayed in most, and none of those come close.

Well Done !

Lush rooms and a fantastic spa. The food is fine dining and for those who like to be filled order a side dish, be warned its not cheap but its definitely quality! The champagne bar is beautiful with lavish decor, cheapest bottle of beer is £4 or more, alcoholic cocktails seembto be about £9+ but in the surroundings its justifiable I guess. Don't let the price put you off though as the whole place is beautiful.

Although the modern interiors of this historic house hotel aren't entirely to my taste (I like old buildings to look old), this is a very comfortable and well-appointed hotel with what appears to be a nice golf course, as well as a spa. I was at the hotel as part of tour group, and the hotel is large enough that we were "integrated" into the regular breakfast in the morning and only slightly separated from the regular dining room for dinner. The food was very good, as was the overall service, and we very much enjoyed the lounge. When our tour bus departed after two nights at the hotel, staff members came out to wave good-bye.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Oulton Hall. We do have some very traditional suites which may have been much more to your taste but overall we are delighted you enjoyed your stay.

The third time we have stayed at Oulton Hall over the last few years, great for visiting Leeds - retail therapy, York - history & trains! the Coast - ample choices an hour away!, and we have friends who live nearby. The hotel is a de Vere hotel and is in a fantastic setting, the grounds contain 2 golf courses. a driving range and the clubhouse The Claret Jug, serves meals most of the day and evening available to none golfers (me) good value/choice . The rooms are quite large, impressively clean and linen is changed daily, breakfast is excellent being buffet style, with extras from a menu can be ordered freshly cooked. All staff were friendly and helpful, the Concierge was particularly helpful. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone.

A Beautiful hotel, ideal for a chilled couple getaway, pool and spa spotless, the breakfast fantastic, excellent facilities, very nice grounds, the only negative, ��14 for a bottle of beer and a cocktail , perhaps an incentive to have another drink or two, like residents discount , or a happy hour
