Stately pile in beautiful grounds didn't disappoint. Lovely interior with lots of historic wood panelling. Room and bathroom spotless and well equipped, and with effective air conditioning (it was exceptionally hot weather). Staff attentive and friendly. Shame the bar not equipped to handle real ale as gassed up creamflow is awful for any beer drinker with taste buds!

Room Tip: We were in Annexe rather than main building but it adjoins main hotel and rooms are excellent and qu...

Very nice hotel on a lovely setting, rooms in hotel extension are fine and very quiet. Service a little slow, but attentive all the same. The WIFI is very slow. Nice pool with steam room and sauna, overall I would recommend

Room Tip: Wifi is pretty slow, go for the new extension

We spent four night here in June 2014 and had a fantastic time. The staff were very friendly and accommodating to our special food allergy needs. The food was great. The hotel itself is spectacular. The grounds are beautiful, and the outdoor deck for having a drink in are perfect. Our room was large, with a great bathroom and good water pressure in the shower. We had a fold-away bed for our son, and there was still ample room for him to play and for our cases. Sigh. I wish i was back there right now :)

Finding myself with a rare midweek day off, I decided to go out for lunch with my Wife.
My expectation was high due to reading the positive feedback on trip advisor.

The grounds of the Hotel are stunning, as is the exterior of the building. The interior is a little tired and not maintained to a high standard.
The lounge is filled with furniture in need of a good clean/refurbishment.
The Bar displaying dusty bottles, open cartons of milk in the fridges, Beer pumps not polished, finger marks on fridge doors and more dust.

We ordered the club sandwich and Cumberland sausages with mash. The club was served on thin, poor quality white bread with dry thin cut chicken. The Cumberland sausages included a random venison sausage.

I work in a 4 star 2 rosette Hotel myself, so understand and work to the AA standards. On this occasion, Ettington Park did not!

Adam our server did ask if we were enjoying our meal. I gave him the same feedback as above, he did listen and apologise but nothing else came of our conversation.

I paid £45.00 for this experience at Ettington Park and can't help feeling a little disappointed.

Stayed: June 2014

Even though a wedding was being hosted at the same time we were made to feel very welcome and the service was very good. Lovely to walk around the gardens afterwards. The food was very high standard and the little cakes were great and we were allowed to take the extra ones home.

Still cant quite believe how nice the staff were, so warm, friendly and helpful. The restaurant was very good, food was excellent , but the portions were on the mean side for the price. Rooms had every thing you could need and were comfortable but were in need of a bit of a makeover. TV was not good, but I'm told they will be replaced soon and the rooms updated. The setting was very peaceful. Breakfast was good and generous. We would certainly return!

From looking, booking, arriving, rooming and departing everything was easy, smooth and a delightful experience. Handpicked hotels, know their product and guest needs and expectations. The detail of room comfort provision was thought out and executed perfectly. The added value touches of bathrobes and small fresh milk in the fridge, make Handpicked a brand to return to. The food was exquisite and the tasting menu is worth the extra step to a luxury weekend, a celebration all of its own. The grounds were lovely, set to their best by the glorious weather, not so sure it would be as amazing in the wet weather.

If there was anything to let the side down and that would be the noisy children running around and using outdoor voices in the dining room. however, the touch of putting the couples in the Chapel away from the families for breakfast shows Ettington are aware of their guests desire to be adult only.

Sadly there was a no show from the ghosts, maybe they are adult only too!

Room Tip: All perfect in their banding. But the rooms with a view are worth it
