Pendley Manor Hotel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Tring
Reviewed April 10, 2014

The Pendley Manor hotel has lovely staff and superb breakfast. We stayed (Mum, Dad & 1 child), in a twin room with 2 double beds. The bedroom was tired and would appreciate a refurbishment. The metal soap holder dropped off the wall due to rust when my daughter was in the shower, completely un-provoked, and bruised her ankle! But the public areas are very pleasant. We booked into the restaurant for dinner, but cancelled after seeing the menu - definitely not suitable for a nine year old's palate, and more formal than we wanted. The breakfast was delicious, and I'm sure was an indication of what the dining room would provide at night. The grounds are lovely and peacocks were wandering free and very tame. With a bit of care lavished on the bedrooms this hotel could go to a five rating.

Lola48-07 thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay, particularly with the presence of the peacocks; they often try and check-in themselves! Please accept my apologies about the soap dish I do hope that your daughter was ok. I am sorry you did not find the evening menu suitable for your requirements, we do have a children’s menu as well; I hope one of the team was able to show you this. Pleased to hear that you enjoyed the buffet breakfast and that the team looked after you well. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel when you are next in the area.

Arrived early to change for a wedding in the hotel. The hotel had previously agreed that there would probably be a room but I was brusquely told that there wasn't - no apology. When I protested I was offered the swimming pool changing rooms

Helenapple, thank you for your Tripadvisor review, I do hope you enjoyed the wedding! We have many people who stay at the hotel who are either attending a wedding taking place here or in the locality of the hotel. Due to the general timings of weddings and travelling time, often people will ask us for an early check-in, our response to this is always the same. “It is not something that we can guarantee but we will check you in if we have a room available”. Given that our check out time is 12pm, we do not always have time to turn the bedrooms around to facilitate an earlier check in than our standard 2.30pm time. My apologies if this is the case on the day you were due to stay. I note that you were told there would “probably” be a room ready. I am glad the team were able to give you an option of somewhere to change as I assume you had to travel to the hotel from some distance. I understand your upset and frustration, we do try and accommodate whenever we can. The team are dependent on the guests from the night before checking out and the housekeeping team working as swiftly as they can. I am sure that the following morning on your departure day they did not ask you to leave your room early for the next person who wanted an early check-in.

We stayed at the hotel for my husband's birthday. I purchased a deal from the travelzoo website.

The hotel is easy to find and in a good location close to Tring.

Upon arrival at the hotel the friendly receptionist checked us in early and the helpful concierge showed us to our room.

The room was a little disappointing as needed refurbishment but was adequate. I know the hotel will be refurbishing the bedrooms soon.
Unfortunately there is not a mini bar and very little plug sockets.

I had an excellent facial in the spa and the facilities looked good but we didn't use them.

Dinner in the restaurant was good but the staff really are a credit to the hotel as they are very welcoming.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning after the refurb.

We got a lovely four-poster room with separate sitting area on a special deal for £100 for one night. We loved the olde-worldness of the place and the quality feel of the building and rooms. We didn't use the bar or restaurant as we ate out somewhere cheaper! If you can get a deal like we did I would highly recommend staying here. The car park is big and right outside. The room was old fashioned and the furnishings were a little dated but just what you want to get the atmosphere of staying somewhere like this. There were some lovely antiques dotted about the room and the separate sitting area with further TV was great for having somewhere else to hang-out as standard hotel rooms can often be claustrophobic.

Room Tip: Try a four poster with separate sitting area, it really makes the stay special and is like being in...

The old Tring family home of Dorian Williams, horse commentator, now a much extended hotel of 173 bedrooms.
Although the grounds may extend to 35 acres much of it is impenetrable woodland with just the old tennis courts, bowls green and the grounds near the hotel tended.
We got a 4 poster bed in a large bed room with plenty of space around us and lots of storage. Reading lights adequate but the old CR tube model TV is offset from the bed, but it worked OK and had the usual free selection of channels. Bathroom getting a little bit dated and the bath has completely lost all its gloss and could now perhaps be reclassified as an exfoliating bath, the drench shower head is probably of more interest to guests though. No towel rail and only 2 hooks on the back of the door so for a warm towel - jam it on top of the radiator. The WC was a bit low too.
Free WiFi and a free room safe were plus points and there was only one of those irritating cushions placed on the clean pillows. Bedroom was hot but the window did open.
Meals very good, well deserving their 2 star rosettes. Staff friendly and attentive. We had a good stay and did a couple of local walks.

Brit1 222, Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are indeed the old ancestral home of Dorian Williams, although the history of the current building goes further back than that to 1875. Your points about the bedrooms are noted in anticipation of the next phase of our refurbishment. I am glad you enjoyed your dining experience with us and you found the staff to be helpful during your stay. I do hope we can welcome you back to the manor in the near future.
