Reviewed November 13, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. We were out on the first at a formal dinner elsewhere, about which the hotel knew. We were, therefore, surprised to find there was virtually no hanging space in our room and no drawers. The hanging space was a rod twelve inches long sticking out of a wall.We ended up living out of our suitcase. The bedroom, itself, was satisfactory, if rather 'cosy.' The bathroom was tiny with no shelves whatsoever for toiletries. To add insult to injury, the water out of the hot water tap was scalding & dangerous.
We were told that we could not have dinner on the second night because of a wedding party and a dinner for the local tennis club. Despite booking over three months in advance we were not told of this. The only suggestion from the hotel was the local pubs 'within walking distance.' We were a party of four and made to feel like unwanted guests and second class citizens.
The only good parts were the staff and the breakfast. Both of which were excellent.

The meals we had on the first night was superb and the breakfasts were lovely.The staff could not do enough and were all very friendly and accomadating. We will definetely be returning in the future

I have had two very different ends of the scale from this one. The restaurant, outstanding. On the other hand the room which appears well appointed has left me with several hours of the party couple next door and car alarms under my window still ringing around my head. Just to add to the night of no zonk, there appears to be a regular group of people attend the car park at various times during the night and morning to chat.
So eat and be merry but get your head down where the walls are a little thicker and the car park does not double as a rendezvous point for night travellers.

Room Tip: Only stayed once so for the room I have no comparison

Stayed for 2 nights at Northover on a KGB deal. Cannot fault anything about this place. We had a comfortable room with everything we needed. All the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient, making a very good team. The food was absolutely top class on both evenings. So much choice and cooked to perfection. It was obvious from the presentation and flavours of the food that the chefs are passionate in their work.
On our second night the staff coped with a birthday party of 23, another function for over100 diners and several residents. This did not distract in any way from the service we received or the quality of the food which proves what an excellent team run this lovely establishment.
A big thankyou to everyone for making our stay so enjoyable, that includes the 'behind the scenes' staff as well.
We hope to have the opportunity to revisit and would without any hesitation recommend Northover Manor.

Not only was the weather fantastic on Saturday for our son's wedding but Mark and his team made sure that everything else was wonderful too. The setting is rural and the weather meant we could take full advantage of the garden. The meal was in the pretty barn which was cleared afterwards for the arrival of the band and the start of the dancing. All the food was beautifully presented and very tasty; not easy for 90 people but the staff were attentive and speedy with refills of water (and wine!) and it went extremely smoothly. Mark is a charismatic host and all the staff were friendly and helpful, making our stay a real pleasure. We were staying in the hotel for 2 nights over the weekend and the rooms and breakfasts were excellent too. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs overlooking the car park and fields are peaceful.

We recently stayed here for two nights, The hotel was very relaxing the staff were very friendly. The food was excellent, only one thing that was annoying was that room 23 was not a quiet room there was lots of noise coming from the kitchen until late and again early in the morning. The beds were very comfortable so this did help to fall back to sleep quickly.

Room Tip: dont have room 23

Took family again to the Northover for food. Excellent I had chicken Rissoto to start 10/10 then the pork 9/10. The Crayfish and all the starters looked fantastic. We all had a great night and the food all round and service was first class. Well worth a visit.
