Just come back from a wonderful experience at Great Fosters. The Head Gardener gave an excellent tour and very interesting tour, the garden is fascinating. Lunch was really lovely and the staff were very warm and welcoming. Would definitely go there again, well worth the £35 it cost us each.

We've stayed at the hotel twice now, both times we were in the main building and the rooms have been spectacular. We've also been several times for dinner and while GF never fails to impress, they have outdone themselves with their new restaurant 'The Tudor Room', the food was amazing and the sommelier really knows his stuff (quiz him on the history of the building as well as wine!). This really is a special place, try it for yourself!

Room Tip: 'Queen Anne' is a beautiful room

We needed a hotel for the night before our flight out of Heathrow. Originally I had a reservation at one of the chain hotels by the airport. Then I read a TA mention of Great Fosters Lodge and decided it was a more interesting way to spend the last night of our vacation rather than at an airport chain hotel.

We were thoroughly delighted with what we found. And it was only 15 minutes from Heathrow. But like another time and place. A taxi to the airport in the morning was 21 GBP. But it was so much nicer staying at Great Fosters than at the airport.

The main building is over 500 years old and has a fascinating history. It is beautifully decorated. Our room was nicely refurbished and very comfortable with an excellent bathroom.

You have to realize that this building is OOOOOLD....so don't expect things to be perfect like at the Marriott or Hilton. Some of the doors stick and the floors creak. The woodwork is scratched up. But this is the great charm of this place. We loved it. These conditions existed NOT out of neglect, but out of the fact that it was so historic.

The gardens were gorgeous. We enjoyed a lovely afternoon snack with wine in the bar area.

Breakfast was excellent.

Exploring the grounds was fascinating...much better than hanging around the airport!

The staff were all gracious and helpful.

The only hiccup was dinner in the Oak Room. It was a very busy Bank Holiday and service was very disorganized that evening.

But I would definitely return to this hotel if I am ever in the neighborhood. We very much enjoyed our stay.

For cream tea a stroll in the garden and a nice relaxing evening in a luxurious room. Convenient for Heathrow, Windsor, Wentworth etc. This really is a unique hotel. Anyone staying at one of the chain hotels near Heathrow should be kicking themselves for missing out on this. Hotel staff were excellent as well. We really were nervous that it might have gone downhill since our last stay 17 years ago, but if anything it has just got better. Thoroughly recommended.

This hotel is truly beautiful, from the moment you drive up to the front door to the moment you are checking out! Stunning features and quirky details, absolutely love the little wooden door you have to go through. We only stayed one night and didn't arrive until gone dark and left first thing in the morning so we missed seeing the gardens which I was disappointed about because from the pictures I had seen online they looked lovely. We decided to eat less formerly in the cocktail bar and were given a choice of the bar menu or a full menu. Boths meals were lovely and made to perfection, I had the "banana" dessert and wow it was to die for, heaven on a plate! I still think of it now. My husband asked to see the wine menu and along with it came their wine expert to ask if he could be any of any help in choosing a wine, the staff were fantastic, very very helpful without being too overbearing. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. There was a wedding taking place but apart from a bit of music you wouldn't know they were there. The whole place was welcoming and comfortable with a very relaxing feel to it. Our room was across the courtyard in the coach house, more contemporary than the main house but still lovely, Molton Brown toiletries and robes and slippers, little things like bottle of milk in fridge for tea and coffee instead of those nasty plastic pods! Only negative thing i can say about our stay was the room was a bit small which wasn't too much of a problem for us as it was just for one night as we were going to watch the golf at The Wentworth Club, which I have also stopped at and would chose to return to Great Fosters rather than Wentworth. I would definately return and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. If visiting this area it is a must, and would be perfect for a romantic getaway.

Room Tip: I cant really say much apart from if you want all the period features you are probably better asking for a room in the main house. If they're as cosy and comfortable as the public areas you wont be disappointed!
