My wife and I plus two friends have just spent a very comfortable time at great fosters. We arrived at about 2.30 and were shown straight to our room despite check in being officially 3.00.

This is a lovely hotel with nice grounds and attentive staff. We got a deal through Secret Escapes which made this very good value. The food was great. On arrival we ate some bar food on the terrace and in the evening in the Estate Grill and were very happy with the amount and the quality of everything. We swam... More

We are fortunate to live relatively close to Great Fosters, and have just returned from a one night stay following a busy Christmas. It is the ideal spot to relax in the beautifully furnished rooms, with the most comfortable beds, to enjoy the log fires, and linger over some wonderful food. The staff are always totally welcoming and professional, There... More

Took my parents and in-laws to Great Fosters for Christmas lunch, and also stayed the night. The buildings and grounds were beautiful, and the staff were friendly, attentive but unobtrusive.

This is a magical setting for a wedding especially in the winter with the beautiful Christmas decorations. However, the wedding breakfast was spoilt by very overcooked lamb which had been left lying around and was dry with limp vegetables which were lukewarm. This was followed by lukewarm coffee and ditto breakfast. This hotel has a serious problem in not being... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Probably built as a Royal Hunting lodge and very much a stately home since the 16th century, Great Fosters is now a prestigious hotel. Set amongst 50 acres of gardens and parkland, the hotel is a Grade One listed building blessed with the grandeur of 16th century England and luxurious modern facilities. Its past is evident in the mullioned windows, tall chimneys, fireplaces and brick finials, while the Saxon moat, crossed by a Japanese bridge, surrounds three sides of the formal garden. All the suites and bedrooms are individually decorated. The bedrooms in the Main House are adorned with tapestries and antiques, whilst the bedrooms in The Cloisters are more contemporary in style. The Coach House, refurbished in 2008, offers luxurious accommodation with the latest plasma screens, i-pod docking stations and fabulous bathrooms. The hotel's restaurant The Estate Grill is less formal and serves a simple and seasonal menu with many of the dishes using produce grown on the estate and cooked on a Josper grill. ... more   less
