“Another wonderful stay”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We have now stayed as a group, 18 nights over the past 18 months. The hotel has fabulous rooms, very well appointed, with a touch of style and luxury. The grounds and aspect, even though we don't get to enjoy them as much as other guests are extremely well kept. Check in is a doddle and the service from Florin, Sam and the rest of the team in the restaurant and bar is exceptional. Great standards of cleanliness and service add to to a very good experience.

Room Tip: Havent stayed in the main old house, but the relatively new wing is superb

Dear Guest

It has been a while and we wanted to get in touch, and thank you for your past reviews on trip advisor, we have been working hard since your last visit to make the hotel even better.

If you have not been to Hogarths since your last visit, why not visit Hogarths Solihull or Stone Manor and see the changes we have made. Two great hotels with one great name, we look forward to seeing you very soon.

Stayed for one night following a friends wedding at the Hotel. Friendly professional reception staff, easy booking in. Beautiful location. Our room was immaculate with a massive & very comfy bed, lovely modern bathroom with fab power shower. Our room was on the ground floor with patio doors that opened up onto a little patio area & easy access to the grounds. We had breakfast the following morning with the brides & the wedding party, wonderful selection of hot & cold food, fresh cooked to order full breakfast. Cannot fault anything - even the bar wasn't expensive! Would most certainly return recommend.

Fantastic hotel situated in beautiful grounds that are nice to jog or stroll around. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room was immaculately clean, and very well presented with lots of very nice touches that made it really stand out. The bed was extremely comfortable, affording a great night's sleep.

Only wish I could have stayed longer than one night!

Stayed on business for 1 night. The room was very nice and the bed was so comfortable. We ate in the restaurant 8 which offered a great menu and the food did not disappoint. I would come back to this hotel with my partner for the weekend.

This was last minute spur of the moment booking at 19:38 on 27/07/2013.
no chance to review just book and go.
We arrived at just after 21:00 to very pleasant staff and were given room 111.
A very spacious room with modern appearance
My wife feels the cold andrequested some heating, it wasn't long before the staff suppled a fantastic heater.
The member of staff even explained that the room was coooler because air con was on. so we turned it off
The reception reccomended the restaurant and we had avery late booking of 21:45.
The food is was what you would expect and priced accordingly, we were pleasantly surprised. The Fish Platter starter to share would have been enough on its own.
The bar staff were very pleasant and even though there was no beer on draught the bottled real ale was enjoyable.
There was a wedding in another function room and it not distub us in lounge area
Breakfast the next morning was also very enjoyable.
The cereal buffet was displayed proportionately with the amount of guests dining in the restuarant, so no need for waste
The room was very comfortable and the bathroom clean.
We will be back

Room Tip: room 111 with a brilliant shower and looks out to the gardens

Certain members of staff need dismissing. Terrible.
For that reason no plus points need mentioning.
Much better places around the area.
Expensive for what and where it is. Nothing nearby, apart from a pub which has a far better menu and service. Trying to be upermarket in order to charge more for all services.

We booked 3 rooms in this hotel as we were attending a wedding locally.
We were given a room outside the main building called Gin Room 3 - its only a few minutes walk from the main building but the WIFI doesnt work there
The bar was expensive and they didnt serve champagne by the glass
We didnt have dinner there and only used it for sleeping purposes. When my partner used the bathroom they said it smelt of mould, which I agreed with. we called the Manager "who was busy" - we never got a call back and had to leave the room as we late to the wedding. I spoke to reception about this and they seemed totally not interested and said something under her breath like " its only the bathroom"
We came back at 9pm and nothing had been done so we used our friends room in the building next door which was lovely. The staff use storage barns next to our rooms so we were woken with furniture being dragged past our room and bottles of wine being carried around.
We went to breakfast and saw the buffer ( picture enclosed) which was pitiful. I've seen better at a Holiday Inn. Not acceptable in this sort of hotel - We had the full English which was greasy and tasted as if it had been cooked hours before.
The duty manager was on the desk when we checked out and I mentioned AGAIN about the mouldy smell - she said "oh its a bit late now to tell us" - Charming !
Not good service although the hotel itself looks very nice - shame about the staff !

Room Tip: Don't book rooms outside the main building as WIFI doesnt work there
