We stayed at The Woodlands for one night on Friday 7th December. I had booked quite late on lastminute.com and had got a bargain for my husband's birthday celebration. Upon check in we were warmly welcomed, were told there was a Christmas party in that evening and were immediately given an upgrade! We stayed in Damask - a very unusual but large, comfortable and rather luxurious room. We even had twin baths in the bathroom!

We booked in for dinner and enjoyed a few drinks in the very stylish bar beforehand. We were looked after very graciously by all the staff. We had dinner in the adjacent dining room along with other hotel guests that weren't part of the Christmas party. The food was delicious and all the staff were most concerned to make sure that the noise and music from the Christmas party was not disturbing us.

This was a most surprising but excellent night's stay. My husband and I both commented on how we would like to return one day.

Thank you to all the staff that made us feel so welcome, particularly Simon.

The hotel looked amazing on the website and although I was away on business I wanted somewhere nice. I got to the hotel and I think I was given the smallest room in the hotel - the bed filled the room and when I asked if there were any alternatives available I was told no. As I was staying two nights this was not ideal. Ordered breakfast via room service and they forgot it so had to leave it and pick up something on route. Overall.. not a great experience.

We have just got married at this hotel and everything about it was amazing! The staff were brilliant from start to finish and could not do enough for you, especially shena the manager. Nothing was too much trouble and the organisation of everything was just right.
The canapes went down well and the drinks reception was well looked after. The wedding breakfast itself is one of the most talked about things by our guests. The duck for mains was so tasty and could not recomend it enough.
The marque was a beautiful room and was heated well to say it was so cold outside. All of our guests seems to have a wonderful time and all the rooms were booked out by members of the wedding party so it made it very individual for us. If you are considering this as a venue for your wedding then do not hesitate! It is world class!

We attended a wedding here a while back. It was a brilliant day.The food was amazing, the drinks a little pricey though, but that is to be expected from a hotel of this standard. Beautiful grounds. Would definitely recommend :-)

The Woodlands Hotel is a place we go when we want to dress up and spoil ourselves to a wonderful and delicious meal in the restaurant. Going for our 25th Wedding Anniversay in December and both of us cannot wait. We have had family gatherings over the past few years and very impressed with the service, nothing is too much trouble. The choice of food and wine menu is varied, excellent.

I must admit we do like peace and quiet when we go out, and when we book a Sunday Lunch or Saturday evening meal we are told that there could be a wedding or some event on just so we know if we want to change out plans. Most times we have been we have been looked after and moved to an area were we are not going to struggle to talk.
