Kelham House Country Manor Hotel was built as a private manor house in 1903 and became a hotel about 50 years later. Under new ownership since 2010 the hotel has been totally refurbished and extended to provide luxury accommodation at affordable prices. Situated in the outskirts of the historic Newark on Trent it provides a perfect location for business traveller, visitor to the area or as a venue for weddings, parties and meetings.

Went to a friends wedding, the venue was forwarned by the bride & groom that all guests liked to have a drink, they ran out of beer 3 times, being sent from one bar to the other for guests to get a drink in most of the time waiting upto 45 minutes to get served - which as it turned out was the hottest day of the year, the comment from the manager was ‘we like it when people pay in cash it makes it look like we have been busy’ my reply to him was ‘ you would have took a lot more money in the till if we could get served and could buy a drink ‘ Some of the guests went to the local Asda to buy some beer as the manager was as much use as a chocolate fire guard and the staff openly admitting they had only started work there that day from the agency. I believe the newly weds should be reimbursed some of their money paid for the terrible service guests received.

The perfect location to host a wedding reception and have a place the whole family can stay! Planning a destination wedding can be overwhelming but the wedding staff made it easy! They reply to emails almost immediately! I would make all sorts of requests and they would go above and beyond to make sure we had everything we wanted for our special day. Our family stayed there for about 4 days and we enjoyed every aspect of the stay!

Dear Lauren Thanks for your lovely comments and we are so glad that everything went well for you and your group. We think 4 days is one of the longest wedding related stays we've had in the last 10 years so it's even better that you are so happy with your experience and didn't get bored of us :-) We wish you and your family all the very best for the future. Best Regards The Kelham House team

Stayed for one night, the room was spacious with lovely view of the front garden. Bathroom clean, as was room. Although there was a wedding in progress when we arrived, there was no noise and sleep quality was good.

Hi, I recently stayed at Kelham house, it was lovely the room and bathroom were very spacey. However I do think with the current climate crisis, it would be better if you invested in some glass cups instead of using single use plastic cups wrapped in more single use plastic in the bathrooms. As a 4 star hotel you’d kind of expect something like this anyway.

Dear Guest Thanks for taking the time to leave us your review and your comments on our bathroom glass policy. We did for a period of time use glass in the bathrooms but we had a couple of incidents with guests dropping them and either damaging the sink, themselves and on one occasion their pet! We do try and always balance out our green credentials with our guests needs and expectations, and we will continue to review this in the future. All the very best Jon-Paul Davies Kelham House Hotel

Executive room good size but bed incredibly uncomfortable - mattress lumpy and sunk in the middle - hence no sleep. This was the highest level of room so not good. Choice of evening meal not bad but wine list very limited - nothing for people who enjoy wines! Expected it to be much better. Seems they concentrate on weddings so weekday guests not best catered for.

Dear Ann Thanks for the review, our Hypnos mattresses are regularly flipped and changed so I'm afraid I cant really offer much more than my standard 'if it's good enough for the queen it's good enough for us!'. Our wine list is something that we consciously keep to a moderate size but all the wines on there are hand picked by us and Weavers of Nottingham, our independent award winning supplier. Our mid week guests I promise you are very much looked after just as much as anyone else and I'm sorry that you didn't feel this on your stay. I would really welcome the chance to welcome you again in the future and change your feelings on our little corner of Nottinghamshire. All the best Jon-Paul Davies Kelham House Hotel
