We stayed at Old Downton Lodge last weekend with a large group of friend as part of a birthday celebration. From the moment we arrived, we received a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We checked in early to our lovely room and joined our friends in the comfortable lounge for coffee and home made cakes. Our hosts recommended local places to walk and even laid on 2 minibuses to transport us to a local beauty spot and collected us when we were ready to return. We had a great dinner, served in an elegant and impressive dining room then retired to the lounge where we enjoyed drinks from the honesty bar. Breakfast the next morning was extensive and offered a choice of both hot and cold dishes. We felt completely at home at the lodge, thanks to the exceptional hospitality of our hosts. We look forward to returning soon.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Fascinating. Intriguing. Mesmeric. Pure escapism just seven miles from Ludlow, in some respects, Old Downton Lodge defies description: It is not a hotel, nor is it really a bed and breakfast or a restaurant with rooms. Each of the nine bedrooms are unforgettable – stylishly converted from historic farm buildings surrounding a flower bedecked courtyard, each is quirky, luxurious, packed with history and designed to make you smile. The hospitality is relaxed and genuine. The food – served in a dramatic dining hall - is exceptional and the wine list inspired. ... more less
