Reviewed September 19, 2012

My daughter and I stayed at this Hotel on 14th September 2012. We stayed in the Coach House, literally a pebbles throw across the courtyard. It was clean beyond belief. The Receptionist, Nicola showed us to our room, we told her why we were there and when we went over for dinner, she had printed out a short cut and typed up the route for us into Nottingham! Dinner was fabulous, the waiting staff were so young, but enthusiatic and extremely pleasant, nothing was too much trouble. We had breakfast the following morning, that too was amazing, the food fresh, the menu inviting! Obviously this wasn't the cheapest hotel, but we've stayed in a few hotels over the summer visitng Univerisites, we have paid the same and the service and standards have been seriously lacking. This is a gem and well worth every penny, the owners should be very pleased with their staff, they are what really made our stay even more exceptional. Thank you to all of you.

Room Tip: 30 Minutes from Nottingham and well worth it!

Dear Hennyhorn

Thanks so much for what must be one of the best reviews we've had!

We have indeed let the guys and girls here know how pleased you were with your stay (sorry it's taken a long time to acknowledge this review, time is a constant enemy to us.)

As a small, independent business it's the people that make it so it's lovely to know what a great job everyone did to accomodate you and your daughter and we hope to see you again if you're in the area.

Best Wishes

We wanted a short break just to get away from it all. The hotel is attractive and set well back from the road down a tre lined drive. We received a warm welcome and were shown to a stylish comfortable room. The room and large bathroom were immaculate and looked newly decorated. The hotel throughout was beautifully decorated in a contemporary style and spotlessly clean (one of my bugbears). My wife needs a gluten free diet so we always check with the hotel in advance. Nothing was too much trouble, an alternative was offered when the dish wasn't suitable. The food was excellent and attractively presented and served by competent and friendly staff.

Room Tip: We had an executive room that was well worth the extra

We stayed here for a most relaxing two nights in July.
Although it is out of the way and easy to drive past the first time, we found it ideal. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The room (Room 2, I recall) was large, clean, and the bed was very comfortable. It was on the first floor (second floor if you are of North American background) but no elevator (lift, for the English). Still, help was offered, but I ought to be able to get " 'er indoors" to pack lighter. No real need for all those shoes.
The bar was very quiet, but this was mid-week. We didn't get to try the breakfasts, (7 to 9 - a bit early for vacationers!) or the dining room - perhaps next time.
Lovely setting, perfect for a romantic escape, a wedding (according to many other reviewers) or just some quiet down time. Free wifi if you have to.
Would stay there again in a heartbeat if I could.

We are a quiet little corner of the world and it works really well for your type of break, we would love to see you again in the future and if you have a little word with the reception team we'd be more than happy to sort out a let breakfast, or even breakfast in bed if you'd prefer.

We stayed here to go to a wedding do only had one night. The room was lovely big clean comfy bed that I didn't want to leave. The staff who we met were lovely and friendly. The breakfast was brilliant only a shame we'd maybe overdid it the night before so couldn't take full advantage
It's just a bit difficult to find tucked away down one way streets but that was probably our sat nav.

Dear Jillb

Thanks so much for leaving your review of the hotel and your experiences with us, especially of the decor as someone else has just given us a hard time about it on another review so it's brilliant to have a balanced review for all to read!!

Sorry you didn't get to enjoy the breakfast, maybe next time you will!

We stayed in the "converted stable" block back in May 2012, as guests at a wedding being held at the venue, we found all the staff to be very helpful, the rooms were clean and very nice. Our room had a large bathroom as was just right as we had a child with us. The wedding went off without a hitch as did the reception, all on site. Very pleasant surroundings. The breakfast was a delight and overall we enjoyed our two night stay. Thanks.

Thanks a lot for your great feedback, weddings are a really important part of our business so it's great to know that not only do we tick the boxes for the bride and groom but also to know that the guests needs and wants are well satisfied is very heartening!

Thanks again

We went to this lovely hotel for a wedding where my toddler was a flower girl. We also had a six month baby in tow and were a long way from home.

The hotel were hugely helpful. Although the groom had booked the room, they were happy to advise me on which of the doubles could host two travel cots. We went for room four which was more than ample. The hotel provided their one cot which was very clean and perfect for our needs. It did not have a sheet, which was fine with us as we brought our own sheets and gro bag that the kids were used to.

We arrived at 11.30am to feed the kids and get them dressed for the 1.30pm wedding. Although the check out time for the wedding the previous night was 11am, they agreed that they would have a room for us to get ready in. When it came to it, we were able to feed the kids on the terrace (but could have used the bar if it was raining) and they had our room ready for us within 30 minutes. We could have had a different room earlier, but preferred to wait a little while to get our own one. Although the kitchen was closed, they also happily provided us with sandwiches whilst we fed the little ones.

The room itself was great. It was part of the main building and well within monitor range of most of the venue which was really helpful. Our bed was comfy and there was loads of space. Our baby has a habit of waking early so we actually ended up putting his travel cot in the bathroom after we went to bed. There was just about enough room for this and it was perfectly blacked out for him. He slept as well as at home. The bath was really lovely, great toiletries provided too.

Our toddler, on the other hand, took the time to party. The staff were brilliant with her. The lady who checked us in knew her name and was friendly with her. She had her own special meal at the wedding breakfast with three courses. Her starter also included raspberry sorbet with melon and she was so excited to have ice cream at the start of a meal. She had to have a little nap in the middle of the meal and the staff came to tell me that there was ice cream waiting for her in the freezer when she woke up.

The morning was also great. We were, of course, up before many other of the guests and the grounds provided a nice place for the toddler to run about. They gave her a cooked breakfast, but also had lots of other food that was suitable for kids - fruit, cereal etc.

I think that the room would have cost £130 which I think is about right. It definitely had the feel of a luxurious venue. However, I think that it was the staff who made our stay so enjoyable.

Room Tip: We found that a quick phone call helped us to choose a room that we liked. All the rooms we saw loo...

I've been meaning to write this review for a while and having had dinner at Kelham House last week I was reminded again what a lovely place it is! The food was delicious and the staff as friendly and professional as ever.

Back in April 2011 I booked out the whole hotel for a weekend to accommodate a group of wedding guests. In the lead up to our wedding the hotel management and staff were really friendly and helpful with organising our guests. Nearer the time they showed me around the hotel before our guests arrived (I was a bit nervous as the house refurb was only just finished). It looked lovely and I even chose rooms for specific guests (they are all beautifully and uniquely decorated).

Whilst I didn't stay in the hotel myself our guests raved about it. In particular the service they received and how accommodating the staff were. They also ate in the hotel and said the food was delicious.

One of my guests is disabled and found his room practical and comfortable.

I would like to say a bit thank you to all of the staff who made our guests' stay so memorable and for being so helpful in the lead up to our wedding.

Finally I also attended a work Christmas party at this hotel last year. Once again great set up, great sevice and great food.

Dear Nadine

my turn to apologise for the delayed response, wedding season this year has had us well and truly run off our feet!

Thanks so much for taking the time to send us this feedback, especially as it represents more than one point of view, to know that we accommodated and pleased all the guests to such a standard reassures us greatly that we are doing a good job, which is a good indicator when in hospitality!

Thanks again, and hope to see you this year for your Christmas party!!

All the best
