Stayed here oct bank holiday 2012, we booked room with a voucher on a deal site and was very happy with the hotel. The staff were very friendly, great location just outside village but not too far away. Rooms were spacious and clean. Breakfast was very good! Hot and cold buffet. Overall very pleased with hotel and offer

I absolutely agree with people who express dismay at this place having four stars. We bought a voucher on grab one which was for two nights. We checked in and were gone back out the door within minutes. Dark, dingy, corridors and an overpowering smell of bleach in the sombre bedroom. Light fixture broken, toilet lid hanging on by one screw, shower gel on the shower wall, plastic shower curtain, lights needed in the daytime, old beaten up furniture. If you are looking for comfort or pleasant surroundings this is not the place to go.

My girlfriend and I dined here on the 25/2/13. Although the place was pratically empty (it was about 7-00ish) the atmosphere was still very welcoming. The place has a sexy aesthetic somewhere between Tudor and Gothic, and the staff while being professional also have time to be friendly and charismatic. As for the meal itself - WOW... We went for a very reasonably priced early bird special and could't believe how good it was for such affordable prices, and the garlic potatoes were absolutely glorious, a credit to the chef. I would happily recommend Rackett Hall for dining. 10/10.

Myself and my husband stayed here. I really liked the room itself as it was quiet charming and the view was of a patio area which was nice. The staff were also fine. The,what I assume was the old entrance was in utter disrepair,when we pulled up, I thought we had made a huge mistake, but the other entrance is much better. Breakfast was fine, kind of self service/carvery style except that the breakfast room was so hot that water,milk and butter were horrible(butter melted and milk and water lukewarm) This could have been easily rectified with a mini fridge to keep these items cool until the guest is ready to use them. Dinner was average, nothing remarkable really. Also rooms were really hot.

Got married and held our reception here just 1 week ago 14.02.2013 on the most romantic day of the year , everything was perfect from the arrival reception with friendly candlelit atmosphere and warm punch to the sit down 5 course meal in a enchanting moodlit dining area, the staff and management were amazing and the suites spectacular.
we also received a beautiful gift of 2 engraved champagne flutes complements of Racket hall.
We had the use of the beautiful surrounding gardens for our photographs and the romantic interior of the hotel set the right mood throughout the whole day and the next .
Breakfast was served until 11 am which was a nice surprise for the late risers.
It was a Perfect day and all the guest were raving about the service they all received and plan to have future event in the Rackethall as do my Husband and I .
Thanks to the Racket Hall for making our day so special , namely Wayne the manager and Denise whom has the patience of a saint .

Room Tip: choose the suite no question, for that bit of luxury especially for some champagne in the Jacuzzi w...
