Fantastic hotel. Amazing surroundings. Really friendly staff. We stayed both in the hotel and the courtyard houses. Had 7 Children and each one of them loved staying in the estate. Great pool and perfect showers for showering with small Children. Food in the restaurant is top class. The only thing negative I can Think of is that the stairs in the lodges are steep and easy enough to fall down! (esp if you are a small Children) They are not covered in carpet so easy to slip if you are wearing socks. .. and if you are wearing shoes they make a hellav noise!

Room Tip: The hotel rooms are too nice to have Children in. All of the lodges are wonderful and have Everythin...

After visiting their spa, I signed up for an annual membership. They have a small workout room with your typical apparatus. The pool, steam room, sauna and jacuzzi are excellent. The jacuzzi is quite refreshing. I'll be leaving shortly for a visit.
The restaurant requires advance reservations and is quite expensive. Bar food seems reasonably priced. There are numerous types of accommodations. The grounds are wonderful for a stroll or jog.

This hotel deserves all the good ratings it has got.
Warm log burning fires offer a great welcome in most of the public ares, and this is my most abiding memory that I take away.
Staff throughout are pleasant, efficient, helpful and relaxed. Christina at reception was excellent, and her cheerful manner and useful information helped us to relax and make the most of our visit.
Rooms are tastefully and warmly furnished in keeping with the house.
The spa/poo/saunal area was clean, warm and relaxing
Walks in the grounds, and around the lake were very enjoyable. It is more of a good stroll than a long trek, and the entire walk is about 3.8klm. On our route we witnessed trout jumping in the lake, a cock pheasant rising from the undergrowth, as well as various song birds which serenaded us all the way. The red squirrel, however, who has been glimpsed by staff, evaded us.
My only slight criticism concerned the dinner. menu, which was somewhat restricted and a bit on the 'gamey' 'side.. Pigeon, Partridge, wild venison, bouillabisse, all featured. If this is your taste, then be guaranteed you will be in for a treat...but if you prefer simpler fare, there are also some simpler dishes, ie wild salmon, corn fed chicken etc for the less adventurous.
A warm relaxing time is ensured in Mount Falcon, and you will not be ripped off by exorbitant prices.

Room Tip: I really don't think there is a 'bad' room in this hotel, but the suites are exceptional

This was our 10th stay at Mount Falcon . We stayed in our usual suite for 3 nights but extended that to 4 nights we were told our suite was not available for the extra night but we could stay in another suite, on the 3rd day we were informed by the receptionist that we could stay in our suite we were so happy we didnt need to move. the food was lovely in the beautiful kitchen restaurant and the bar food which we had on the 4th night was equally as good. We met up with a very nice couple it was their first stay at Mt Falcon and from what they told me will not be their last. My husband and i both agree that this hotel is one of the best and we look forward to our next stay.

My husband and I stayed for one night midweek and were lucky enough to be upgraded to one of the suites. It was quite amazing!
The hotel is lovely and welcoming and so warm and cozy in winter, with fireplaces and comfy couches everywhere.
The staff was really friendly and professional, especially Christina at reception.
We had dinner at the Kitchen restaurant and it was well worth the price for the table d'hote menu.
The leisure centre was very nice too, but the best exercise is certainly walking/running around the estate!
Definitely recommended.

From the first visit when we decided on Mount Falcon as our wedding venue, to the morning we left after a fantastic weekend, nothing could really have been improved upon. The staff were, to a man, friendly, enthusiastic and helpful and made my wife and I, plus all of our 130 + guests, feel very special. Our guests stayed in a combination of hotel rooms and lodges and we didn't hear a negative comment from anyone about anything. The food was superb at all meals but of course, we must make special mention of the wedding meal which was excellent and better than many a top restaurant meal I've eaten over the years. We are biased because it was our wedding but I cannot believe that there are many better wedding venues out there anywhere and as one of our guests put it, "you've raised the bar several notches today".
A truly wonderful, memorable weekend with the beauty of the house and grounds as the centrepiece, thanks to all at Mount Falcon
