“Good but.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

The room was huge and lovely, although lacking tea/coffee facilities. The grounds are also very nice. Food is very good, though not exceptional and reasonably priced for what it is. However the service in the restaurant was a not at level it should be at for this grade of establishment. That said, it is more for couples or small groups and is not business people. I was left for extended periods, the waitress was curt possibly because I asked where a missing component of my meal was. The receptionist was very good and friendly though. Probably very pleasant for couples having a lovely weekend break, or special meal out. Not quite for business travellers.

What can I say,absolutely excellent.The staff,the food and the location-excellent.I even had a little bonus;whilst stretching my legs after the delicious evening meal 2 badger cubs kept running across the drive way-what a delight it was.Again the food and the location excellent but it was the staff that gave it that extra something,they were brilliant.

We stayed in this hotel for a few nights as an Easter break. It was recommended by a family member who lives close by. We were not disappointed the staff were lovely and warm. Our dog was fussed and we were made to feel very welcome. The room was huge and the building speaks for itself it's fabulous. The breakfast was endless and very tasty the staff accommodated us like royalty. We will definite go back next time with friends! The beauty salon next door is worth a mention too. The young girl was lovely and I was made to feel very special. For the motor heads out there it is very close to Outon Park.

A good old-fashioned treat for Sunday luncheon with friends is so enjoyable... but the venue has to be excellent, and this one is just that. Beautifully located, well-trained staff and well-cooked food.
Perfect? Almost... just two tiny details: The head waiiter didn't listen to the drinks order so the barman brought an incorrect type of sherry (soon rectified without problems). Also the food was gorgeous but the menu was slightly too simple for my taste - you do the same food at home when you are not trying to do anything special.
Don't knock it... it is still worth 5 stars.

Room Tip: Didn't stay in a room, but in the restaurant, get a window table looking out towards the Bickert...

Myself and my wife have just spent 3 nights B+B at the Willington,This old country hotel is definetly one of the best we have ever stayed in, The double bedroom was huge, the bed was bigger than kingsize and extremely comfortable, there was a large flatscreen T.V. and lovely 2 seater sofa,We were in room 3 on 1st floor which overlooked the lovely gardens .lake and open fields.The food was of very good quality and locally sourced,breafasts were tremendous,Cereals,homemade preserves,fruit and full cooked ,in fact anything your heart desired,the hotel offered a 3 course evening meal on Wednesday evenings for £30 for 2 persons (not each),we really recommend that guests take this as it was very good value,bar prices very very reasonable for a hotel of this stature e.g.£3-30 for a pint of real ale.
Last but not least the Friendly staff from reception to bar were this hotels crowning glory,smiles on all their faces and very attentive to everyones needs,would highly recommend a stay at this hotel on arrival we were even helped with bags and shown to our room (not always the norm nowadays).

Room Tip: Believe that any room will please visitors.

I spend a couple of days here as part of an equestrian escapes holiday. The hotel is set in a lovely location and is right next door to the riding school which is great. The decor of the hotel is a little dated but it is still very clean and the rooms are fine.

The bar food is of a good quality and there is no trouble being a lone traveller as they make you feel extremely welcome. All of the staff are both helpful and very friendly. The beauty spa next door is excellant for a good massage after a days riding. The riding school itself is great and the standard is very high.

I would most definately recommend a couple of days at this hotel.

My daughter was married here and I cannot speak highly enough of the staff they cannot do enough for you
The hall is lush and the bedrooms are spectacular and more importantly my daughter enjoyed every minute of her day
