“Father's 90th..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

My parents love this hotel having been many times and it was a natural place to hold a special birthday. We had a party of just under twenty with ages ranging from 21 to 90. We had a table in a private area adjoining the restaurant and the service was very good. We had all pre booked our food and everyone got what they had ordered. The food is good without being fantastic but then its not what I would call a 'foodie' hotel.
My parents who stayed the night had a very pleasant room and the only concern they had was that it wasn't as warm as they would like but then they do have their home heated to a much higher than normal temperature.
The grounds are very nice with a large and a small lake which many of us walked round. I'd recommend this hotel particularly for older guests.

What a lovely day! Invited to a wedding reception at the Powdermills. A red carpet was out for all of us (probably the only one I'll ever go on ), with a Toastmaster in attendance throughout the afternoon. Excellent waiting staff, very attentive the whole time. The venue is lovely, and the menu and food was perfect - even the children were catered for with their kind of food. We are vegetarian and had an excellent meal, which is not always the case. The attention carried on through the evening party. Very highly recommend Powdermills a a wedding venue, or just for a meal.

Room Tip: Sadly we did not stay at the hotel. Others in the wedding party said the rooms re lovely.

We have attempted to book lunch at this hotel many times but we have always been disappointed as there has been a wedding on the day we chose. This time we managed to make a booking on Easter Monday and we were not disappointed. The hotel has a beautiful setting with a lake and the Orangery Restaurant is lovely. It was a bright and sunny day and we were make to feel very welcome. The service was excellent and the food delicious and we felt reasonably priced. We will certainly make another visit very soon.

Room Tip: A table near the window in the Orangery Restaurant is lovely.

Stopped here for an unplanned lunch on a beautifully sunny day.We were absolutely delighted.What a fabulous place with warm and attentive 5 star service ( they were very busy and now had us two less than impeccably dressed guests to attend to ) and presentation of the most wonderful meal..yes...including wonderful veg. ...and good selection of very reasonably priced wines including organic. The public rooms were lovely, all the staff we met were welcoming and polite...all created a calm and open hearted atmosphere. Thankyou receptionists, waiters, and chef team. Ah, I have just this second read the reviews here......yes I agree that the dining room and bar do have a different atmosphere and in fact I had though it was sad to go into the orangerie at first ( a bit like going from cosy to cool! )but once sevice began we stopped noticing.

What a fantastic evening in such an apt setting. This is the first time i have been to a murder mystery evening and wont be the last. From the moment i stepped into the library meeting the enchanting cast of the Murder mystery event i was taken in. The restaurant was staged for the 1918 episode of a murder that we had to resolve, I was on my own and the tables were set so i could join one, we all worked as a team or we could hand in our own conclusion to the murder at the end of the evening. The 4 course meal was delivered during the murder mystery event, and was of a very good standard, i should say excellent value at 45 euro a ticket. the hotel puts on 2 of these events a year and i have already booked myself in for the October date. I must say that the staff were exceptional considering i was a single person guest, they really gave me a warm welcome. Thank you.

Stayed 3 nights midweek in room 16. Fantastic facilities. Even had 2 showers & a comfy settee! Excellent choice @ bfast. Eddie, maitre d', makes u v welcome & nothing too much trouble. Short walk over fields to Battle abbey worth doing. Hotel provides instructions - + wellies if needed. Only downside was the service in the library on the first night. Having placed our order for food(only a main course as not over hungry) we waited at least 45 mins & the bread basket, which shd have been served with the drinks arrived same time as the meal. We decided not to risk further evening meals there after this.Excellent stay overall. Watch out 4 George, the resident peacock. V glam visitor every morning outside the restaurant.
