“cold water,cold food,cold service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2010

upon prepairing to go out unable to get any hot water in bath or shower,when contacted reception and explained the situation and was told that everbody had seemed to have used the hot water at the same time. As the hotel was only partially full I found this extrodinary. Decided to stay in and try a bar meal in the room, once it eventually arrived me and my partner found it to be luke warm at best. At the breakfast table, there was a long wait for a very minimal breakfast, Constantly asking for beverages. To top it all off upon paying the ball, drinks at the bar were charged to my account although we never actually used the bar itself.

The service we received was excellent from the person who made our booking to restaurant staff. Everybody was efficient and friendly. Our room was tastefully decorated with a huge bed which made for an excellent night's sleep. We felt the room was too warm, but we turned the radiator down and it was fine. Bathroom was lovely too, with nice deep bath and seperate shower, soft towels, bathrobes and slippers.
The dinner we had was absolutely splendid, cant speak highly enough of the chef. Breakfast the following morning was delicious too.
Will definitely be returning!

went for afternoon tea as we had been told of a spread in a magazine, it was not very welcoming and cold. Afternoon tea was very expensivejust a few cakes which looked as if they were from iceland, one mouthful each and fruit cake had been warmed up and hard. ordered a welsh rarebit also when arrived was cold (maitress said it was bought in and warmed up) they then made a cheese on toast with tomato on top approx ten minutes later. I emailed when arrived homne to be told they had given us an extra coffee free and should have said so when we were there< we didnt want to cause a fuss. Will never return.

We stayed one night in this lovely country setting hotel only mins from Ludlow centre.
Greeted warmly and shown to our lovely room with fanastic country view.
Dinner in the restaurant was so delicous with attentive service.
Breakfast was equally superb.
Would strongly recommend this hotel for a peaceful getaway.

I recently stayed here on two occasions in October and found the hotel to be a really pleasant experience. I stayed in Room 1 on my first visit, then Room 8 on the most recent one. Both rooms are furnished to a high standard, with large walk-in showers in both rooms. Room 1, which is outside the main building but just yards from the main entrance, is suitable for disabled guests and has a small lounge area as you enter the room. However, this simply has two small armchairs with a table facing a flat screen TV on the opposite wall. It seemed bare and a bit of a waste, surely a comfortable sofa or larger chairs would have been more appropriate. I didn't think this would compromise or hinder any disabled access. Unfortunately, the heating had not been switched on in the room, and it was a cold surprise that awaited me. The hotel wi-fi didn't work for me, and even the provision of a cable failed to get me online. However, once I was in the main hotel lounge I connected straight away. Maybe it was because I was in an external room? I also found the desk far too high and was not suitable for the business guest. However, the bed was large and comfortable. On my second visit, when in Room 8, I had none of these small problems and was able to get some work done!

Now that's the end of the 'bad' news, the excellent part is the hotel food and service. I ate off the 'bar menu' in the brasserie on both occasions and found the food to be of an exceptionally high standard and would surpass the quality often found in top restaurants. No wonder, the main hotel restaurant gets great reviews, if the bar menu is anything to go by!. It's not cheap but you get great, well presented quality food, that was a delight to eat. It was no surprise that breakfasts were equally as good too. Throughout both visits, staff were polite and attentive, and couldn't be faulted at all. Car parking was plentiful although it did suffer from some sort of drainage smell, probably not from the hotel. Just one bit of advice when you arrive - the small reception desk is unmanned but simply pick the phone up and call 0, and a member of staff is with you within seconds.

Anytime I'm on business in the area again, I'll try and stay here. Highly recommended.

We travelled from the Isle of Man by car to stay for 8 nights at the Fishmore Hall Hotel, set in the lovely Shropshire countryside and yet just 5 minutes (by car) from the centre of Ludlow, an absolutely charming market town. The walk from the town to the Hotel is uphill and not an easy one but we found short term parking in Ludlow not too difficult to find and reasonably priced. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the bedrooms both comfortable and well appointed (except for the absence of an electric razor point and more drawer space plus a few more hangers would have been nice (but you could ask for more of the latter and we managed anyway!). No bath - but roomy walk in shower was great. The Restaurent is really excellent and we believe it is well deserving of an award for the high standard of service and of the 'fine dining' experience. (We ate one night at the top recommended restaurant in Ludlow - La Becasse - which also had excellent cuisine - but certainly no better than the quality and presentation of the gourmet experience at the Fishmore Hotel!) The breakfasts offer a good choice, ranging from Continental of full English and all individually prepared. The Hotel staff could not have been more welcoming, friendly, helpful or professional! It is a good base for touring the County, close to the Welsh and Herefordshire borders and the Ludlow Food centre is just 2 miles away.

Stumbled on this place by accident, what a stroke of luck! Arrived early evening, hadn't pre-booked. They gave us lovely room at good rate including dinner. Excellent welcome - had the feeling nothing was too much trouble. Dinner was just one fabulous treat after another - really top-drawer. Have eaten in very expensive famous restaurants and not been nearly so impressed.Don't know anything about the chef, but hope they manage to hang on to him as we'd love to come back sometime. They know how to run a business!
