Having traveled round the globe this is still the only hotel I've ever reviewed. We were upgraded this time but actually saw the room we stayed in last time and bearing in mind we were the first people to stay in room 12 it was still emaculate ( a reflection on how good housekeeping is). The food is absolutely amazing... More

A gormet experience from beginning to end, and all set in opulent setting. A variety of options on the menu and the most difficult part is which one to choose.

Part of the charm of Wrea Head Hall is the fantastic food and service. The restaurant manager Len ensures that high standards of service are provided whilst head chef Andy produces exceptional food beautifully presented.

Choice of two menus for dinner, but you can pick and mix.All the food was excellently cooked and very well presented. A good wine list, possibly a bit on the pricey side, but this is not a cheap hotel.

Very Disappointing.The afternoon tea had a lot to be desired. The staff were not attentive although we had booked it in advance and were the only people at that time in the restaurant. They served it on a very low table and on the sofas not in any of the restaurants which was very inconvenient and uncomfortable. . Although the... More

We ate here whilst staying at the hotel. Both dinner and Breakfast were excellent. For dinner there are 2 fixed price menus but you are allowed to mix courses from the cheaper and more expensive menus for just a £5 premium per course from the more expensive menu
