“Perfect venue”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

My sister had her wedding here recently and its fair to say that it is just ideal. The hotel is in a beautiful setting and the grounds are perfect for photos or just to stroll around. The staff were always helpful and polite and nothing was to much trouble.

The wedding meal was lovely with delicious food served nice and hot. We stayed overnight and had breakfast, which again was of a very good quality and choice.

The hotel room was a good size and the bed was very comfy. Lots of little extras like pillow mist and shower caps too. Would recommend both the restaurant and hotel side to everyone.

Had a night out at the Higher Trapp Country House. Really great hotel for the money, food in the bar was really nice down to earth proper pub food we ate much too much :-)

The room was totally acceptable, nothing flash but clean and fresh. The surrounding woodland was amazing, you feel a million miles from anywhere, it was lovely. O and the breakfast!!!!!

All in all a very pleasant stay, great staff and good value.

we stopped here for a wedding in a family room. The room was plenty big enough with everything you need, the only problem was we were in the other building and not the hotel. The walk to the building was badly light at night and very uneven. Staff were brilliant. Pillows far to thick to sleep on.

Friendly and cosy hotel but you want to avoid a stay when the hotel holds a wedding party (too noisy till well after midnight) if possible. The wall of the room seemed not be thick enough and I could easily hear a talking voice in the room next to mine.

We stayed at the Higher Trapp Hotel on the night of our wedding reception and I couldn't recommend it enough! The staff were brilliant, especially Maxine who co-ordinated our day from the moment we arrived fresh from our church ceremony. The food, which multiple guests commented on, was delicious both in the wedding breakfast and evening buffet. The rooms were immaculate and I had a much needed good night's sleep after a busy day - having not slept a wink the night before my wedding! A number of our guests also spent the night and were incredibly impressed with the hotel. The full English and continental breakfasts also went down a treat the following morning. The perfect place for our perfect day.
