My wife and I spent a 6-day 'get away from it all' relaxing break at Warwick Hall during late Jan / early Feb 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We have 2 dogs who go everywhere with us and there was no problem having them stay with us. We were in the Riverside suite which is a lovely home-from-home apartment incorporating lounge, kitchen and bedroom with large en-suite bathroom. The apartment was centrally heated throughout with the bonus of an real fireplace in the lounge and a plentiful supply of logs. The lounge was well furnished and equipped with TV, compact stereo music system and IPOD dock. The kitchen was also well equipped and the bedroom had a large very comfortable bed. The bathroom was large with a huge bath - perfect for a relaxing soak.
Service was very friendly with as much or as little attention as we wanted. Breakfast was included in the price and we had full breakfasts every day of our stay, normally in the lovely, spacious dining room but served in the apartment one day at our request. Dinners were also served in the dining room on request and we only had to let Val know in the morning what we would like. We had dinner in the dining room on 3 nights of our stay and each meal was excellent with a good choice of fine wines. Other nights we ate out or self-catered at the apartment. The apartment was cleaned daily.
Although the main aim of our stay was relaxation, we did spend some time visiting tourist attractions which Val recommended and if we didn't fancy going far from the hotel, there are acres of private ground with riverside walks to enjoy with the dogs. Val was also happy to recommend restaurants and pubs for lunch or when we chose to eat out at night.
This hotel may not be the Ritz, but it is a thoroughly pleasant, very relaxing place to stay. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We would not hesitate to make a return visit and thoroughly recommend Warwick Hall to anyone looking for a special holiday experience.
