Location fantastic, staff very friendly but that is where the good stuff ends. My room was compact and claustrophobic - i asked straight away to move but there was nothing else available. The lovely lady on reception brought me a fan to help with the heat. Didnt help that the heating was on. The bathroom floor was dirty in fact... More

We stayed at the Elfordleigh two years ago and I was interested to see whether anything had changed. This time it was for a wedding, and the reception was being held at the hotel, so it was the obvious place for us to stay. The building and the grounds are amazing and the hotel could be world-class, but two years... More

It was a very warm day and as there was no air con or fan in... More

The hotel was in lovely surroundings, but the room didn't live up to expectations. Had Room 22 which had 2 single beds put together which were different heights, and the sheet didn't fit. Was on my own, and provided with 2 pillows which were in the middle of the bed - would have expected 4, with 2 on each side.... More

We have started a refurbishment project but have stopped during the summer season so we do not disturb our guests. The reception desk is only temporary and we are expecting delivery soon. We do have fully refurbished rooms available... More

Went here for a wedding reception, everyone had ordered their food months before and not many could remember what they had ordered, usually it would be on the name card on the table, but it wasnt and the waitresses didnt know who was having what, they got there in the end, but it was quite disorganized for a large function,...

Came here for family wedding. The hotel is currently undergoing renovation so i am hoping that most things will be sorted in to not so distant future! Bedrooms are big and redecorated by furniture is cheap and too small for room and doesn't match. There are no headboards or niceties. Shame as could be amazing.
