Stayed for two nights - the venue and grounds are beautiful. My room was lovely although was very hot and you couldn't open the window very far. Disappointingly the bed wasn't made up after my first night and so I had to request fresh towels from reception.No apology or explanation was given as to why room wasn't made up. Reception... More

The place is stunning, there's no other way to describe the building. Opulent decor inside but the service lets this place down. The rooms were really first class but let down by the cheapest toilet paper going. At breakfast we were sharing a buffet breakfast with a wedding and had to wait 20 minutes for bacon and repeated requests for... More

We stayed here for our anniversary. We had a lovely time. The restaurant has amazing good and the rooms are lovely. Make sure you book any treatments you want from the spa well in advance as they were booked up for 2 weeks and we could not get any treatments. We paid £20 pp to use the spa's sauna, jacuzzi...

I took my fiancee for one night for his Birthday and requested a room with open patio doors, I was told this would not be in the main house. It didn't feel like we were in an Annex at at and in fact if I hadn't been told would not have realised as you still felt very much part of... More

The hotel is clean, charming and well kept. The bathroom was fairly spacious and had nice amenities. The breakfast had a good variety and the wait staff were friendly. The bar staff were engaging however it was a very quiet scene. It was fairly warm (unusual for this area) when I visited and the rooms do not have air conditioning.... More

We had a delicious afternoon tea here. Service was slow but the waitress made for it with personality. It wasn't her fault as they were seriously understaffed. The cakes were delightful, looking like beautiful plants served on an AstroTurf . Quirky but nice. I would go again.

My husband and I stayed at Down Hall Hotel on 10th and 11th August 2016. Check in was relatively smooth but it was unfortunate that for some reason the restaurant was not open that evening. Sandwiches were available. the lady who checked us in was sniffing the whole time and I did want to offer her a tissue. We found... More

I stayed at Down Hall yesterday evening on business and throughly enjoyed it! The staff were all very attentive and polite. The fitness facilities available were excellent. Having to stay on business meant that I was on a budget for my evening meal and therefore didn't eat at the hotel. There was however two menus available, one for the main... More

This hotel was nothing short of fantastic. From the minute I checked in early, to when I checked out the staff were on hand at all times, and very helpful. I stayed for business in July 2016, and was lucky to have the afternoon on arrival free. Also luckily this was on one of the hottest days of summer so... More

We took the Sunday evening discounted deal with an upgrade to an Executive room. The hotel was beautifully decorated and the rooms were spacious, very clean and well appointed. We took some time to stroll around the peaceful grounds and explored the common areas of the hotel which give have some fabulous items of furniture and ornaments and plenty of... More
