The hotel offers good value for money and while it is a little under cared for it, does provide a good place to stay overnight if you need to stay in the area. The staff are effecient and friendly enough but like the hotel itself, do no more or less than is necessary to offer an effective service. The room... More

The rooms are very good spacious and with everything thing you require for your stay, the views across the country side are breathtaking especially from room 10. However the service in the breakfast room is chaotic, a simple order comes back wrong the scrambled eggs were over cooked and the general quality of the cooking was very poor however they... More

I don't want to be too negative about this hotel as they clearly do aim deliver a pleasant experience for their guests. The building is impressive and looks very grand on the long winding drive that leads up to the car park. The Hotel is set in some very well looked after gardens and clearly benefits from some good wedding... More

I stayed here after attending a course locally and was pleasantly surprised considering the price. On arrival the welcome was warm and friendly and the room was great - very clean and well appointed. The only downside was that it wasn't recommended to open the windows as there was lots of bugs flying outside due to the nearby location of... More

Booked this hotel as in wonderful location & was dog friendly. Large ground floor room located to the side of the main house - not luxurious but perfectly acceptable. Plenty of room for dog pen & french windows leading outside garden area. Breakfast setting in conservatory overlooking gardens & fountain. Breakfast itself plentiful but unremarkable. All staff very friendly &... More

We were looking forwards to our lunch at The Dovecliff Hall which we I booked with Groupon for £30 . The setting is absolutely gorgeous and the weather perfect so all looked great. The staff were attentive and the service slick but the food left a lot to be desired. The melon was beautifully presented and the very small aubergine... More

Nice house in the countryside just outside Stretton, Burton. Lovely grounds, peaceful, good food breakfast and dinner. Rooms are clean and comfortable although beds would do with an upgrade towards a firmer support. I like this place and have become a regular when I am in the area.

Visited for my birthday on Bank Holiday Sunday and we had a thoroughly lovely meal. The staff were friendly and courteous, even omitting olives from one of the meals after overhearing us mention that we don't like them. We sat in the conservatory, which allowed us to look out over the beautiful gardens. Quality of the food was of a... More

Last dined here about 23 years ago and it was fab - very grand and felt pampered. Today's lunch was completely underwhelming. It was a Groupon 4 course "taster menu" apparently. It was actually a cheap Table D'Hote lunch with hardly any choice, the starter of "pork terrine in pastry" was actually pork pie!!! For goodness sake! The place is... More

My husband and I attended for lunch. The venue was superb with beautiful grounds. The food was excellent with coffee served outside in the gardens on request. The service was good. Definitely value for money. I have been to similar and this was by far the best.
