There were many positives to our stay and a few negatives. We were welcomed on arrival and told how to find our room. The room we had was in a block overlooking the vineyard. We found nice little touches like complimentary chocolate nibbles and proper ground coffee for the morning. Some of the decor was tired - the wallpaper peeling and stains on most of the furniture tops (sideboard, dressing table) which was sad as they were nice pieces of
furniture. The bathroom was a real let down and looked like it hadn't been renovated since the 80's. it was very cheap looking and for £120 a night you expect a bit more. The water system in the block seemed to be terrible. It may have just been a problem in our room but I doubt it. There was terrible clunking and banging from the water system whenever anyone used any water, especially hot water in the morning or the evening. We wanted a relaxed romantic break - so we didn't want to get up at the crack of dawn. Some of our neighbours did, however, fair enough if they want an early shower, but it did wake us very early both mornings when the system clanked for what seemed like hours. I certainly couldn't sleep through it. There was also an odd beeping noise that occurred frequently. I realised the next day that it was coming from the wine warehouse/depot which is behind the accommodation block. The view was spectacular and really special. We were lucky enough to be able to sit out on a couple of occasions and it was lovely. Breakfast was in the dining room and was very nice. I loved the marinated yoghurt, fruit and granola (which isn't usually my kind of thing) and I enjoyed the eggs benedict. We had two cafatieres of coffee and stayed looking out at the vineyard for two hours so we were very relaxed and not rushed to leave. The walks around the vineyard are lovely. they do not restrict your access and we had an enjoyable walk for a couple of hours (walking off breakfast!). Some of the self guided tour stations (huts with audio options to select with history/info about the vineyard & wine) were broken but the ones that were working were worth listening to. We had been bought a lunch and wine tasting/tour voucher and so had lunch relatively quickly after breakfast but it was tasty and the wine was lovely (Three Choirs Willowbrook). The staff were generally very nice and friendly with only one waitress who never smiled and was grumpy. We were disappointed that we weren't allowed to swap our lunch for dinner and pay a supplement. This would have meant we had more room for the food and wouldn't have had to cut back on breakfast. We then joined the wine tour which was fun and interesting. Well worth it and the wine was delicious and well priced (not as expensive as some English vineyards) - we bought quite a few bottles. They also have nice homegrown beer and cider. The man who works in the shop and restaurant was lovely and helpful. He gave us an ice bucket to use to cool our newly purchased sparkling wine. All in all a really lovely, memorable, trip. A few changes/improvements would have made it perfect.

We stayed here as part of a deal which started with a wine tour and tasting. We were very impressed - we used to visit Three Choirs in the '80's, and it was wonderful to see how everything has evolved. We enjoyed the tour, which was very informative, and we enjoyed tasting a selection of very enjoyable wines. After the tour we checked into our room, which was delightful, with wonderful views over the golden vines. The room was very clean and comfortable. There is a little patio area, outside each room, and we were able to sit and enjoy a coffee in late afternoon sunshine, before going for a walk around the vineyard. We could have been in France! That night we left our curtains open so that we could awake to the glorious views - a bit disconcerting when the grape pickers and tractors arrived at the vines around 8am. Still they had a job to do, and it added to the interest - and fortunately we had just got out of bed!

We ate in the restaurant, the service was good, and we enjoyed our meal. Breakfast was also very pleasant, with a good choice. A lovely stay, and we have now booked for our daughter and her boyfriend to stay here in the New Year.

Unusual accommodation in purpose built row of rooms overlooking the vineyard. Beautifully done with lovely bathroom. Stayed as part of a deal and had dinner plus bottle of bubbly in ice bucket on arrival. Meal was good but the wine was mostly their own and rather expensive. Did the wine tour which was interesting.

Room Tip: All the rooms overlooked the vineyard.

A bitter sweet experience. On arrival my wife had to wait 5 minutes for the lady behind the desk to finish talking to a member of staff and acknowledge our presence. We were then told that we needed to produce a voucher as our visit was bought as a gift online. She clearly had proof of our booking in front of her but insisted we provided this voucher. My wife had to make calls to her mother to get this done. This was all conducted in reception where we felt like a right couple of lemons. Why couldn't we be given the keys and asked to politely forward the voucher in the next hour or so?? We later found out from my mother-in-law that she had already returned the voucher to them by email when she initially paid.

The views from the room were beautiful and the complimentary cava was very welcoming. The room was a good size but the wallpaper was lifting off in several places and there were severe water stains on the table. A shame as any manager with a modicum of an eye for detail would sort it out with the minimum of expense.

The evening meal started well with a tasty starter but that's where the culinary bonhomie ended. We both ordered medium rare steak at £22 each. Both steaks were medium, under seasoned and tasteless. Vegetables were over-cooked. The potato dauphinoise were dry and bland. What we thought was a safe desert, a cheese board consisted of dry Inedible cheddar and double Gloucester. The stinking bishop and blue cheese were both good though. My wife told me not to complain about the cheese as we had already complained about the steaks; something I now regret. Needless to say no discount was forthcoming. So we paid £120 for a meal which was barely worth half that. The wine was very good though and service attentive.

The Three Choirs vineyard is very good at its primary business which is producing top quality wine. Their supplementary business does not have the same keen eye for detail unfortunately and left a bitter taste in the mouth for which the steak wasn't solely to blame.

Buyagift voucher used to visit this vineyard. Did the tour only but accomodation and restaurant also on site. Tour was very informative with good selection of wines to try. Tour took about an hour and a half, easy walking and lovely surroundings. Would visit again if in the area. Restaurant was very busy, only do full meals , we had travelled for 4 hours to get there but there was no facilities to have a light snack and tea or coffee, had to go to the garden centre just along the road as we were staying overnight in the area with evening meal and needed something to keep us going.
