My boyfriend booked a nights stay at great fosters for valentines day as a surprise. The view of the building on arrival is very impressive, even at night. Amazing gardens and grounds to explore. Plenty of parking. Gorgeous renovated original building with great period features. The entrance room leading through to reception is particularly lovely.
We stayed in the new out building which is build away from the main building across the courtyard. But still in-keeping with the period look. Room was lovely with period features but all the modern touches. Fully equipped bathroom with underfloor heating, mood lighting etc. flat screen tv, iPod Dock, tea making, iron, fridge...
Bed was large and comfortable.
We had an issue with the bath but this was resolved.
We ate at the restaurant in the hotel. Food and service was excellent. Portion sizes were great and everything tasted fantastic. Would recommend the scallops particularly to start.
Breakfast the following morning however really tarnished our one night stay.
The service was horrible. We had to ask 3-4 times for everything! For the amount paid this is completely unacceptable. The food we got was ok but no where near as good as dinner. We were apologised to when checking out but this really meant we left on a bad note.
All together a really good hotel (if expensive) but not quite there with the breakfast!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Probably built as a Royal Hunting lodge and very much a stately home since the 16th century, Great Fosters is now a prestigious hotel, awarded 4 red stars by the AA. Set amongst 50 acres of gardens and parkland, the hotel is a Grade One listed building blessed with the grandeur of 16th century England and luxurious modern facilities. Its past is evident in the mullioned windows, tall chimneys, fireplaces and brick finials, while the Saxon moat, crossed by a Japanese bridge, surrounds three sides of the formal garden. All the suites and bedrooms are individually decorated. The bedrooms in the Main House are adorned with tapestries and antiques, whilst the bedrooms in The Cloisters are more contemporary in style. The refurbished Coach House offers luxurious accommodation with the latest plasma screens, i-pod docking stations and fabulous bathrooms. The hotel has two restaurants - The Estate Grill has been awarded two rosettes by the AA and serves a simple and seasonal menu with many of the dishes using produce grown on the estate and cooked on a Josper grill. The Tudor Room was awarded a Michelin star and three rosettes by the AA in October 2016 and is an intimate sophisticated restaurant open for lunch on a Thursday & Friday and for dinner from Wednesday to Saturday inclusive. ... more less
