“Great hotel with great food”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Stayed midweek on business and had dinner in The lady Helen restaurant, we opted for the tasting menu. The food was fantastic all locally sourced ingredients and all 5 courses were really
very tasty. This restaurant really does deserve its new Michelin star.
We only found out it had one after we complimented the staff on the food.
The staff were excellent and added to the enjoyment of our night.

Room Tip: You need a room with air conditioning especially when the weather is good.

I just stayed here with my parents from the 25 may to 28 may. We had the most wonderful time and didn't want to leave today! We wish we could've stayed there a few more days, it was idyllic ! We stayed in one of the Rose Cottages which had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Very nicely furnished, very modern , felt like you we're at home. It also had a washer, dryer and a full kitchen which was very handy!
I highly recommend getting the Afternoon high tea, it is so delicious and it is so lovely to sit in the very grand room at the front of Mt Juliet house with views overlooking the river and fields. We also had an amazing dinner in the Lady Helen Restaurant, very good service and they gave us a few amuse bouche courses along with our two courses and a very generous plate of petit fours!
Also we dined in Kendals in the club house, the food and service there was excellent as well! Also loved the buffet breakfasts in the morning!
I also had a massage which was so relaxing! I highly recommend it!
We will definitely return for a longer stay when we return next time to Mt Juliet.

Mount Juliet Estate is one of the most idyllic places I've ever been. Beautiful mature trees, rolling green meadows, foals in the fields, old roses creeping up walls, it's picture perfect.
Food in Lady Helens restaurant, a massage in the spa and a cycle around the 1500 acre estate on a glorious summer day made this a perfect getaway. I will be sure to return to this fairy tale setting.

Our stay in Mount Juliet was second to none. A six course gourmet meal followed a round of golf on the magnificent course, while my partner enjoyed the spa facilities. The rooms were big enough for a concert and decorated beautifully. All very quaint but with the few modern touches that are needed today. All in all a great experience and a beautiful location.

Room Tip: Stay in the main house if you can rather than the lodges.

I spent a lovely morning horse riding with Tara and some of the owners last week. Riding along the river and through the woods covered in bluebells and wild flowers, it is difficult to think of a nicer way to spend the morning. Tara was brilliant and we covered lots of ground at a good pace for everyone.

Quality of the facilities is very high and I'd highly recommend it as part of your trip. Also excellent for building up an appetite for afternoon tea!
