We were lucky enough to secure a table booking for Mother’s Day lunch. Having never visited Greywalls before we left feeling we had discovered a very special place. We were delighted with our welcome and settled at our table immediately. Drinks were served promptly and attention to service was noted. The menu offered varied options for all and the chicken, leek and pancetta pie was wonderful. We managed to squeeze in pudding and the peanut brownie with banana ice cream was delicious. Service was impeccable and just right. The table gift of local gin and chocolates and macarons was a perfect touch, and much appreciated by our mother. A harpist played throughout our lunch providing a relaxing ambiance. Overall a very enjoyable experience - a welcome break from busy everyday life. We will be back, thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

Booked the Dinner, B&B package on offer. Friendly welcome from the manager who also kindly carried our bags up to our room. Our room overlooked the delightful gardens albeit the weather did not show them off to their best. We enjoyed a cup of tea in the library beside the roaring fire. Dinner itself was an absolute joy! Being Valentines we were presented with a delicious champagne cocktail made up from Secret Garden Gin and Rose Champagne. We were then given some amuse bouche including smoked salmon and caviar and a little tartlet. My starter of crab was absolutely wonderful. The ingredients that went with the crab resulted in the freshest flavours that burst in the mouth. For main pork loin was served. This was the nicest pork I have ever tasted as it was moist and succulent and literally fell away when cut. Again the accompaniments worked perfectly with this dish. A pre-dessert was served which again could not be faulted. The main dessert itself of hot apple souffle with a caramel sauce and mango sorbet were enjoyed by us both despite thinking we could not possibly manage to eat anything else! This was not the end of the meal as coffee was offered along with some petit fours. I have to say that the entire meal was one of the best I have had in a long time and I cannot praise the chef highly enough. Overall this is a delightful hotel with lovely friendly staff and I would recommend it to anyone. I know many reports state the hotel is a bit "tired" but this is a fairly old manor style building that has its own special charm which for me is ideal.

This hotel is exceptional from the minute we arrived to leaving the staff was very inviting. Our cottage room had everything you needed and was very comfortable. The dinner we had to the wine was excellent. Breakfast was a bit disappointing,underwhelming. But this is just my opinion.

Great one night stay after playing golf at Muirfield. Chose the caddie closest room which was sufficient for the short stay. Post dinner refreshment in the bar was a good night cap! Luggage and golf bag was conveniently stored and readily available at checkout. Breakfast was good with excellent service

We live locally and visit Greywalls occasionally as a treat. It has always been a wonderful experience for us. We love the building, the interior and the grounds- we even enjoy using a torch to find our way around the puddles on the walk in! The main thing for us, however, has always been the food and the service but both were disappointing this evening. The two members of waiting staff seemed keen for us to hurry up and leave and didn’t know the menu at all. We were left to find our own coats and weren’t asked at any stage how we were finding our evening. The food was fine but so disappointing for the cost and what we’ve experienced before. Maybe a lot of staff were off because it was the 2nd January but we can’t afford to spend £200+ on an adequate meal and 2 glasses of wine each whilst feeling quite unwelcome. A real shame because we’ve always found Greywalls to be such a special place. I will say that the garden is beautiful in the summer and I’ve had several lovely afternoon teas there. Maybe avoid evening meals just after Christmas!

We had a wonderful Christmas experience at Greywalls. The Hotel is a treasure ,excellently managed and loved by our family. Our Christmas dining experience was excellent and family who resided at the hotel over the weekend could not praise the hotel more for the service received.

We had a family meal at the restaurant Chez Roux. Firstly, I will say the food is excellent; the quantity of food and the quality are both excellent. The meat cooked to perfection, and the souffle was also sensational. However, the service was severely lacking for the price point and did not do the food justice. It felt particularly awkward, and the restaurant would do well to rectify this. I hope that they do improve the service, as the food really is worthy of attention!

Well where to start. We had decided to splash out for our wedding anniversary and truly treat ourselves at Greywalls, a hotel we had never been to. The outside is stunning, really fabulous architecture and the gardens are a delight. Our welcome was as you would expect but when we were shown round the ground floor it looked as though it needs a massive clear out of furniture and upgrading. I get that it’s trying to give the feel of a stately home but for the prices they are charging it need’s refurbishment. Our bedroom had stains on the carpet, damaged wall paper from a leak, the window was broken and whistled autumn wind through the night. There was no comfortable space to sit: one small sofa and a high backed wooden chair… and the lighting was inadequate and extremely dated. Dinner was fine, nothing like as exceptional or exciting as you would except from the Roux family. It was over priced and average. We slept terribly, doors slammed, there was a window banging all night in the wind and when we came out of our room for breakfast there was a dirty food trolley with last nights dinner left there which nobody had cleaned away. Breakfast was burnt and cold on arrival. Just not what you’d expect. I mentioned, as we were paying, that we’d had a very disturbed night but it wasn’t followed up or questioned by the senior member of staff. We left earlier than we’d planned feeling extremely exhausted and ripped off.

Dear Guest, Thank you for spending time to leave us a review after your stay with us. It is obviously a disappointing read on our behalf and sorry that we didn't meet your expectations. Greywalls is an elegant Edwardian country house so the decor and furniture is in keeping with that style, but I do understand that is not to everyone's taste. I apologise that no-one followed up with you on departure. We have already resolved the issue with the window. Thanks again for your review.
