We stopped in for afternoon tea today, and although it is not a standard offering, we were given a lovely selection of sandwiches and desserts. Julie on reception looked after us with great care and charm, and made our visit a very special occasion altogether.
For service like this we will make every effort to visit again, and to spread the word. Well done Julie and colleagues!

Thank you so much for your lovely review, and especially for your great feedback on Julie I'll make sure she gets to see this review! Our lunch offering is small but we like to think perfectly formed, and by the sounds of it you agree!

My previous review made a reference to the food not being very exciting - I would like to take that comment back as the last time I stayed here the food was excellent. A really lovely selection on the menu and the presentations was a feast for the eyes, needless to say the actual taste experience was upo to the expectations. It is so nice to find an independant hotel/restaurant with such exacting standards.

Room Tip: Stay in the main building for the period feel, the newer rooms have a more modern flavour, but all t...

Hello again!!!

This is one of my favourite ever reviews, thanks for taking the time to post it. As I said when you last stayed with us we had to use an agency chef who although doing a perfectly good job I don't think let you see exactly what we were capable of here at Kelham House and the Kitchen Garden restaurant, and I'm really glad that you visited again and got to see what we work so hard to achieve.

Thanks again, we look forward to seeing you again in the future

We stopped here the 5th/6th October with family for my step daughters wedding. They were holding their reception here on the Saturday afternoon. We arrived on Friday early evening and found the impressive hotel up a sweeping drive. We were in an executive room and it was beautiful and very clean. The rest of the family had rooms in the converted stables which were roomy, and very comfortable. Sarah who greeted us on our arrival and checked us in was very helpful from when I booked our rooms over the phone to helping me find a hairdresser for Saturday morning and a florist for my step sons buttonhole!! Excellent service Sarah, thank you. We ate in the restaurant on the Friday night and the food was amazing!! Breakfast was very filling and a varied choice from a full English to Eggs Benedict!! My hubby couldn't eat though as he was a bag of nerves about doing his 'father of the bride' thing!! All the staff on the Saturday was brilliant, Helen, Ben, Sarah, Nathan, Clarke and some I didn't catch the names of.....brilliant service!! The wedding reception in the Garden room went perfectly and the food was good. We had a very happy bride and groom. Again Thank you. As we sat in the bar later it was nice of the General Manager to come in and say what a pleasure it was to hear people enjoying themselves!! Oh and we did!! My husband and myself would like to Thank everyone at Kelham House for making our stay pleasurable, memorable and for making a perfect end to the Bride and Grooms day. Highly recommend this hotel.

Dear Carolyn

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a great review, and for taking the time to remember so many of the teams names!!! We're very proud of our team and the great service they give so thanks for acknowledging them, they were very happy to hear you'd had such a lovely time.

Shame your husband couldn't enjoy his breakfast, as you say it is something special but nerves do that to some people!

Again thanks a lot for taking the time to leave this terrific feedback, it now has a fitting place on our notice board as a reminder of how hard work pays off!

Fondest Regards

We found this venue by accident whilst looking for a wedding venue. Wow what a find!! We were very impressed by how friendly and helpful the staff were on arrival. We loved the venue from visiting and booked our wedding there. We had fantastic service from the wedding organisers at the hotel in particular Chris Quick who dealt with our booking. The service from beginning to end was brilliant and well organised. We had our ceremony and wedding reception at the hotel which all ran smoothly, drink, food and accommodtion was all spot on for us and our guests. The chef also provided alternative meals for those guests with special dietry requirements. Overall we highly recommend this hotel as a wedding venue... Thank you to all the staff at Kelham House for making it a special day . Michael and Melissa Sadler.

Dear Michael & Melissa,

Thanks so much for such a lovely review and for choosing us to have hosted your special day!

Weddings are so important so to hear that we ticked all the boxes to make your day as special as it deserved to be is very rewarding, and we've of course let Chris and the team know of the great review you left for us.

Apologies for delay in responding to it, time runs away from us all!

We hope you are enjoying married life and maybe we'll see you for your anniversary celebrations!!!

All the best

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
