“Beautiful Manor House - Perfect for a Wedding!”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

I chose the Elvetham for my Wedding, and it was simply perfect! Not only are the grounds & gardens stunning, the inside of the hotel itself is beautiful, with painted ceilings and a wonderful calming atmosphere. I have thoroughly enjoyed every visit I made whilst planning my Wedding, simply to sit in the reception area, and will now miss having an excuse to visit!
The staff are all very friendly and attentive & make you feel as if you're at home, not just in a hotel.
The bedrooms, although not all very big, have beautiful original features (such as fireplaces) and all individual with character (none of this cloned decoration & style you find in more modern hotels). Each has all you could need (tea/coffee, nice bathroom etc).
The food is all very tastey, and maybe not what you might expect when reading the menu!
Would definitely love to go back, maybe to stay on our year anniversary.

Stayed here on business a few times, the main House is fantastic, but the rooms in the annex feel like studentville!
Room facilities a bit basic.
Good food and friendly staff

The hotel is located on beuatifull grounds with plenty of wildlife like deer, goose, pheasants.
The rroms are abit sparse and the restaurant offers a very limited menu with tiny starters. The main courses are only slightly more filling.
The breakfast buffet is very nice if you fancy an english breakfast. Continentals will have to do without their cooked ham or cheese, just some fruits and yogurths.

The personnel is very kind and helpfull and does its utmost to make you feel at home.

All in all, a nice experience but not as great as it could have been if at least the restaurant would give you a better choice.

We had our daughters wedding reception at the Elvetham last week, truly amazing. Aside from the period charm, everything from initial check in to our departure was faultless. Friendly staff at all levels, attentive to the smallest details at all times. We had lovely rooms in the main house, the wedding reception was a fairy tale, food five star, disco perfect and the bar was tops.
For a surprise we booked a local professional pianist Winston Eade to play at the drinks reception, he too was something special. The hotel can put you in touch with him.
We would certainly recommend the Elvetham Hotel for a very special wedding reception.

I visited this Hotel for my firm's Christmas party I also stayed the night in one of the rooms. I have no idea about the cost as I wasn't picking up the bill.

On arrival check in was dealt with efficiently and politely by staff on reception. My room was a twin in a kind of stable block, detached from the main building which was a bit of a disappointment.

The interior of the room was in good condition and very clean. The bed was comfortable and the furniture of a decent standard.

My only real criticism of is the early check out at 10.30, I felt that this was too early.

I have used The Elvetham's excellent conference facilities many times for both Board meetings and most recently for our annual conference, which was held at this venue for the third year running. I know I can count on business development, IT and catering staff to ensure the events run smoothly. Everyone I have introduced to The Elvetham, whether on a business or personal basis - afternoon tea, wedding reception, family occasion - has had a positive experience and the staff's enthusiasm for welcoming guests is second to none. Ask for a potted history of the hotel - its fascinating!

I went to this hotel for a Golden Wedding celebration on 24th March. I had not looked up any details apart from the address and was pleasantly surprised to arrive at such a beautiful location and such an interesting old house.
Our welcome was friendly and our room was comfortable and well equipped apart from no tea bags, only coffee and no bedside lamp one side of the bed. I was able to move the desk lamp to rectify this.
The room was very hot and there was some noise which we could not identify. The layout of the building is very rambling which was fine for us, but the main house would not be suitable for anyone with difficulty walking.
We were there is beautiful weather, which made the grounds particularly stunning. I loved the staircase and painted ceilings in the main rooms.
We had an enjoyable buffet meal in the evening. For breakfast there was an English buffet breakfast, which included smoked haddock or kippers done to order. There was a good selection of fruit , nuts and cereals.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Some friends said they had very noisy air conditioning outside their window, so they couldn't ha...
