“Powdermills hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

Just returned from Powdermills hotel on a travelzoo voucher.Hotel room and staff very good, in the restaurant they did try to hurry us , we did have to say slow down.We had the tasting menu which was fantastic but you do have to have a good appetite. A minor point check your bill as they made 2 errors on our total.We hope to return.

Room Tip: Room 40 very good overlooking the lake

Well! Always try to exceed expectations,and this Hotel did....friendly staff,beautiful room with a superb view,despite the foulest weather imaginable.
The dinner was excellent,and here's a first....at breakfast ,the waiter allowed us to mix and match the items on the menu....smoked salmon,scrambled egg and bacon...you may not like it but it was like being at home,eating exactly what you fancied!
Criticisms? too minor to mention...but...a certain member of staff had had a personality bypass operation ( all the rest made up for him!),a fridge in our executive room would have completed a great stay.Definitely going back when the pension fund builds up again...and please include VAT on the room rate quotes....quite annoying actually...but overall,well done Powdermill!

The hotel is in a rural location a short distance from Battle (not walking distance for pubs / restaurants though). There are extensive grounds and a pool which are probably great in summer. Welcome was friendly and efficient. Room was large, clean and comfortable. Bathroom was fine although the shower lacked water pressure. Breakfast was very good. We had dinner as part of our package which was also very enjoyable and the wine prices were reasonable. We would recommend it.

We were two couples and stayed at Powder Mills on a Wednesday night. Had a fantastic three course meal and service was excellent. Waiter "Jet" from Cambodia was a great asset. Delightful old building with lots of interesting rooms. Bedroom was larger than we had expected and we had two showers in the room. Very friendly staff. Just been awarded 2 Rosettes by the AA. Well deserved.

Room Tip: Room 16 has 2 showers.

As you drive through the gates and cross the bridge over the carp lake you know this is going to be a good one.
All the staff were very pleasant and we were shown up to our room that was large enough to accommodate a comfy sofa and two showers!
The restaurant was an impressive room and the food and the local wine excellent.
We went on a Groupon deal and I have to say that it represented probably the best value for money we have ever had from an on-line offer.

Room Tip: I doubt there is a bad room in the place.

Booked PowderMills as a winter special deal direct from their website (v. good value!). We had a delicious, three course meal (compliments to the chef) and very satisfying breakfast the following morning. Despite the miserable weather, we donned our wellies (they have spares if you arrive without yours) and walked across the 1066 battle fields into Battle the next morning (very squelchy this time of year!!). All in all we highly recommend this gem, and shall return in warmer weather to better appreciate the lovely setting. Oh, and we shall bring our dog with us next time.

Room Tip: We were in Room 37, didn't have any views to speak of, ask for lake view or front of hotel view.

Booked a special deal with this hotel for my Wife's 40th Birthday.

The grounds are fantastic, with woods & the lake to walk around. Our room was amazing. Located at the front of the hotel, on the left corner. On leaving I just had to ask if we'd been upgraded to a mini suite but was told that it is one of their standard double rooms. WOW! King size bed & a 2 seater sofa. Only one slight moan - The shower tray filled up really quickly & took quite a long time to drain away.

As part of the Travelzoo deal, we also had a three course dinner with a glass of prosecco & a cooked English breakfast, although we opted for the continental. :-)

Well worth the full rate but made my Special Lady's birthday even more with the deal.

Friendly, helpful staff. They couldn't do enough us.

P.S. Try one of their afternoon tea's or cream tea's while you're there!
