“LUXURIOUS”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

I'll start by saying do NOT stay at Lucknam Park if you are counting the pennies or checking the card statement because you won't enjoy the final bill. This Hotel is for extravagance, indulgence and luxury, it has been voted the UKs best ....and that quality costs. So, with that in mind, we found Lucknam Park a wonderful experience for a special anniversary celebration. A large country manor sat in the Wiltshire countryside, you approach Lucknam down its own long winding road with views of the house in the distance. The staff are immaculately attired, ushering you in (luggage carried to the room and car parked for you of course !) to the majesty of the public rooms. After a brief tour of the fascinating house we were led to our suite. The rooms are sumptuous, we had a four poster and the room was tastefully decorated. The Spa is really exceptional, at night the indoor swimming pool is lit by a fire running along the length of the pool, the adjacent hydrotherapy pool is open to both in and outside elements, it's gorgeously warm so you can float beneath the water while the chill air contrasts your skin from above. Do try the Japanese Salt room. We took Dinner in the Brassiere, every mouthful a treat. The hotel can cater for any request, from falconry to ballooning, horseriding to golf ...we didn't have time I'm afraid. If you want to really spoil yourself, and/or someone else, Lucknam is the place, it's fabulously luxurious and indulgent. When I win the lottery, we will be back and stay far longer.

This was our first visit to Lucknam Park and our first impressions were that the main hotel had a rather more dated look to it than it appears on the website.

We stayed on a quieter week night which suited us. Our room was comfortable, although rather old fashioned decor, but had lovely views overlooking the park. We enjoyed a tradition tea in the drawing room by a cosy open fire whilst the weather did its worst outside. All the staff were very helpful and attentive.

The spa didn't disappoint, with comfy loungers and warm cosy lighting as the night drew in. There were three hot rooms, an indoor/outdoor pool - like stepping into a lovely hot bath! Unfortunately the main pool was a bit on the cool side and could have been a few degrees warmer!

I booked for a spa treatment which again was very relaxing, one small criticism, I don't know why they ask you to fill out a questionnaire if they take no notice of what you write! Also my partner did comment whether it was worth £2 a minute!

So, although this hotel felt a tad old fashioned to us and perhaps not to our taste for a 5* hotel, we still found it very comfortable and welcoming and well worth a stay.

I attended the stocks soups and sauces course today, I loved it!! Sometimes you wonder if you get value for money but today I was in no doubt. Ime a good cook but I felt I need to go back to basics in order to advance, I couldn't believe how much we covered in one day and at the same time having a tremendous laugh and eating amazing food. The seafood risotto was sensational. All of us were resolved to be there for the part two of this course. Luckily for us the cookery school has only been going for three months and the word isn't out yet... but when it is..!
My husband had the day in the spa and a huge lunch, his only complaint was that he couldn't find anywhere quiet to read as the water features were very noisy but he had a sensational massage.

We whiz zed off home as happy as larks... can't wait to go back. Book while you can!

The food and service at the hotel are excellent although unless go there specifically for the spa or equestrian services you may find the rooms are overpriced.The wine list is also excellent but very pricey. You will need a very educated palette to see the value. The sommelier tends to push you to the expensive end of the wine list.

The room we had was very comfortable but looked a bit tired; the decor could do with renewing. The bathroom was spotless but really needed upgrading.

Overall a very good experience but if, like us, you just wanted a room and an excellent dinner it is over priced.

The service was excellent from booking to checking out. We were upgraded to a suite in the courtyard. After a short tour of the hotel we were shown our room where there was a complimentary bottle of Champagne and chocolates.
The room did not have tea and coffee facilities which we found strange but we were told we could order drinks for room service (no tray charge). There were a couple of water marks on the bathroom blind and the bath tap dripped but that's being picky as overall the room was comfy and well dressed.
We were very impressed by the Brasserie. The food was lovely and the room was a great modern design with floor to ceiling glass. The restaurant was as you would expect more formal and traditional. Excellent food and service. We had the taster menu which was stunningly presented and very tasty.
Would we go back? Yes definitely.

I did the Indian Street Food course and was very impressed. The quality of the equipment and the standard of everything was outstanding. Rishikeesh is a great cook with a passion for food that stands out. I really enjoyed the day

My husband and I spent four wonderful nights at this marvelous hotel and would go back in a flash. It is English country living at its best with luxuriously appointed rooms and common areas, a wonderfully attentive staff, grounds with gardens that will light your soul and a spa that defies description. All is low key, tasteful and dreamy.

We visited during November so the gardens were not in bloom, but they were beautiful none the less. Think Botanical Garden or private country estate with a master gardener. We can't wait to go back when everything is in its full glory.

Despite the cool days, we delighted in wandering on foot or by bike the vast grounds - discovering something new each day. After exploring, we repaired to the spa to swim and lounge by the pool. This has to be one of the most gorgeous spas in Europe. It is beautifully designed and expertly staffed. It is simply wonderful.

Lastly, our room was sublimely comfortable - beautifully appointed, but not overdone. Just perfect.

We will definitely return..
