We recently stayed at Mellington Hall it was for our Wedding anniversary. We had a two night break and the first night we had food in the Bar the second night the meal was included in the deal, we had a 2 course meal included but could not have main and desert had to have starter and desert, we neither of us like to have starters and would have preferred a sweet. We have had had the option on other deals. We went down for dinner at our booked time and we were asked to wait in the Bar and our orders would be taken and we would be called in when the food was ready. We had hoped to have one of the window tables but when we went into the dinning room there were already two couples in there both at the window tables, neither had ordered food and were in fact just sat drinking. We had our meal which took approx. 1 hr and neither couple had started to eat when we left. My Husband had a steak which was nice but the chips were a let down looked like frozen chips, I chose the pork belly which was over cooked and the roast vegertable were almost black not what I would call first class cooking. The room was OK but again the towels were frayed and no showere cap was supplied. We paid twice as much for this deal as we normally do and quite honestly did not get value for money. The staff are helpful but quite slow and some of the tables in the dinning room were not laid properly. The table clothes look great but are so big that you can catch your feet in them when you leave the table. On the whole not what we expected and would not hurry back.

Past glories of this


magnificent building have been lovingly restored with sympathy by its present owners who have captured its charm , warmth, and ambiance without over egging the cake. The staff cannot do enough for you and go out of their way to make sure that your stay is a memorable one. Being disabled was not an issue as their was always someone at hand to help when and if necessary. The grounds are extensive and immaculate,teaming with wild life. Rabbits hawks and giant carp in the lake were a wonder to behold and the different walks held a different view around every corner. I cannot wait to return and this time book the Mellington suite with its own jacuzzi!!

Room Tip: They are all good!

We visited this hotel for a spot of lunch after having a very pleasant walk in the grounds. The service was slow but very friendly and polite and the food and drink was good value. We took the opportunity to have a look around the several rooms which are available for various functions, the main room, the dining room and the bar, and was quite pleased with what we saw.. There are some lovely items of furniture together with paintings and photographs of couples who have had their wedding receptions there too. Unfortunately there was insufficient heating in the room we were eating in and we had to wear our coats to keep warm, also when we were there several large cobwebs could be seen on the windows and ceilings and a bit of action with a feather duster and/or a vacumn cleaner wouldn't go amiss.

I have passed Mellington Hall twice before, but this time made a five-minute detour out of curiosity. They put a sign on a nearby path saying that walkers were welcome, and I trudged to the building along a muddy track to get there. It's a splendid stone building, like a miniature stately home, and it was very quiet on my visit. In fact, I found the staff sitting outside in the sun having a break. When I asked for a coffee, I was served with great friendliness, and no-one questioned me walking into the bar in muddy footwear, or wandering around exploring the inside of the hotel. The coffee was remarkably cheap. I'm not sure if I'll ever get the chance to stay here, though they do have caravans and a campsite available as budget options!

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved our stay at this hotel. We were here for 2 nights and the only negative was that we wished we could stay at least another 2. Staff were all friendly and so helpful. Service was brilliant, from the afternoon tea to the breakfasts to the dinner. We really enjoyed siting in the cosy bar area having a drink while waiting for our meal.

We stayed in the Montgomery suite which had amazing views to the front and had a lovely luxurious feel. The food was good and we hope to be back soon, even though we live over 3 hours drive away! Despite the fact that it rained almost the whole time we were here we still loved it. Thank you very much, and special mention to Kim who was so accommodating and cheerful. Will highly recommend to all my friends.

Stayed as part of a wedding party, was quoted one price but when we came to pay it was a dearer price ( should have got them to confirm in writing) we had a 'suite' which was nicely decorated but there were a few things that needed sorting, no plug for the bath, the shower head would not stay on the wall so we had to sit in the bath with the shower head ..not ideal. there was a notice telling us to use the non slip mat when using the shower... but there was no mat. the television did not work at all to begin with... a very helpful member of staff came up and fiddled about with it and eventually got it going ..but in black and white! the view from the suite was that of a caravan site .. lots of green static vans... such a pity because it is in a lovely part of the world and the staff were very nice. We did point out all the problems and the price change but were brushed off as if we were making things up... but they did reduce the price by a whole £5 ....woosh... wont be going back any time soon.

Room Tip: check you have a bath plug and a tv that works in the Kerry suite
