Went for Afternnon tea on New Years eve and it was throwing it down with rain and blowing a gale outside. Unfortunately it was just as cold inside. Loads of fireplaces but no fires and no heating on at all. I asked our waitress why it was so cold and she said the draft comes through from reception. I asked why no heating then and she did not know. Service not brilliant, had to twice wander around to find a waiter to order more drinks. I;ve Had better and get the heating on!!!

Went for a couple of nights prior to Christmas for a Birthday treat. Hotel was very nice in the communal areas they are quite Luxurious and well presented making them an enjoyable place to relax. The Restaurant was also well presented but spoilt by the wobbly uncomfortable chairs. The breakfast was very good and plenty of choice. The spa and pool was excellent and an enjoyable way to spend some time. The Bedroom was nice enough but was not impressed with the bed which was old and not overly comfortable. The staff were all friendly and helpful and we had an enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Ours was on the 1st floor which is where the pool and spa is located so was handy for access to that...

Wife and I went for Xmas 2012 break. Staff were great, food was excellent and there was sufficient entertainment to keep you interested. Wife went for a treatment in the Spa and thoroughly enjoyed it . Would recommend to any couple wanting time for themselves at Xmas.

We held a celebration here for 25 of us for my wife's birthday on Boxing Day 2012.

The event was planned with the help of Joelle Mountain in the run up to the day with our contact being Yousef on the day itself.

In spite of how busy the hotel was (Christmas guests of course) our small event was expertly organised and staffed. We had a private room - the Repton Room - and afternoon tea. The food was very good and plentiful. The kids were looked after with a room next door dedicated to activities.

My wife had a wonderful time and the feedback from the guests was fabulous too. I cannot fault the service and the quality of the event as a whole and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

My wife and I and our 2 kids (ten and five - strange names, I know!!!) stayed the night in two seperate rooms (we booked late and family rooms were sold out). Other reviews have mentioned that the rooms look a little dated and I would agree that they could use an upgrade. That said, there is no way the overall experience was less than 5/5. Well done Oulton Hall - first class!

We have been here several times both on business and socially. I had high hopes for a family Christmas lunch, but this was a big disappointment.

The service was excellent and couldn't be faulted, but at £90 a head so it should be.

Food was bland and Luke warm, the hottest thing was the plates from been kept under a halogen lamp.

My biggest bug bear of anywhere is when a waitress delivers a plate to a small child ( never mind 3) gripping it in a tea towel as it's too hot for an adult and warns a 7 yr old to be careful it's hot.

What does it take to serve kids so they don't scold themselves.

Overall service pretty good, food bland beyond belief and a bill for £300 + for 2 adults 2 kids. You need to do better De Vere for a premium brand

I attended a 'Take That' tribute Christmas party evening with work colleagues. The standard of the food was terrible. My started was ok - Salmon, my main course was cold, Sea Bass, 4 sprouts, 1 piece of carrot, 1 piece of parsnip, 4 very small roast potatoes. I had to send my main course back to the kitchen, when it was replaced it wasn't much warmer. My sweet - Apple and cinamon brulee was the weirdest brulee I have had. All in all the quality and quantity of the food was very poor for a 5 star hotel. Also the time it took the meal to be served from start to finish was unacceptable too - far too long.
