Reviewed March 31, 2013

We booked the two day mid week break to enjoy some relaxing time together, the building and grounds are very pretty and well looked after, there are lots of small outbuildings and a beautiful spa with inside and outside pools, hot tub, sauna and steam room. The team are very welcoming and helpful I would consider visiting on my own as I felt very comfortable with the surroundings. The breakfast choice was excellent, nice little touches including hot porridge with a bottle of whiskey if you wanted to add a little to your porridge or coffee. We had the Chef's tasting menu which was perfectly cooked and presented. We booked classic rooms and they were fine for what we wanted, they are connected to the main building by an underground tunnel which adds to the medieval atmosphere. We all enjoyed our break and would return. Robert the manager was very friendly and ensured we were well looked after during our stay.

My husband & I recently stayed at Bailiffscourt Hotel, we were there for an" Evening with Peter James " the crime writer. Our room in the Gate House was lovely ,a short walk from the main building so lucky it didn't rain. The meal in the restaurant was delicious and breakfast although a bit chaotic at times was also very nice. Treatments in the Spa were excellent and the therapists very friendly. All in all a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: If possible try to book a room in the main building then should it rain you won't wet going to d...

Thank you for a very relaxing and welcoming stay. We ate some scrumptious food, drank some good wine and enjoy swimming outside in March when there was snow on the ground!
The spa was excellent and the fact that there was a coffee lounge with a Nespresso machine and all the papers ensured that we were well and truly made to feel 'at home'.
We will be back ASAP.

This has to be one of my all time favourite places. Everything is simply special about the experience. Build up your appetite with a walk along the pebble beach before coming in for a quick massage. Dinner is a fine but slightly formal affair, following the walk in the underground passage and a quick gin beforehand in the library.

We were so well looked after it was a pleasure to stay and can't wait to have a reason to go back.

Room Tip: Make sure you're in one of the old buildings to enjoy the character of ancient days.

The hotel is built in the style of an ancient (16th Century) building but was in fact erected in 1927. Some of the furniture dates from that kind of time as well. Quite impossible to get in or out of our bed without the kind of creaking that would have seemed inauthentic if you'd seen it on TV! We had a feature room which was pretty cramped and felt even more so when we kept kicking the raised brick fireplace in our bare feet.

The staff are excellent - very helpful indeed when we had a little difficulty to address. Food was also excellent with a voluminous and reasonably priced wine-list.

The spa is also pretty cramped - if you want to sit by the indoor pool in winter, you're going to be one of only 8 who can and the others are going to be pretty close to you. The sauna and steam room are pretty timy for a place with (I think) 39 rooms. You have to hope the other guests want to go and see Climping but we were there on a very rainy so they were all in the spa.

The buildings are scattered around a pleasant campus - again when it's cold and rainy, not ideal going in for dinner in your anorak.

Room Tip: The rooms are very individual. Sadly they are not all pictured on the website so it's worth hav...

My partner and I had a magical two night stay in February in the Wymcrofte room.

The poster bed was impressive. Big, warm and snuggly. We had a gorgeous log fire, which was lovely to fall asleep too. The bathroom was big and room as a whole in good decorative order.

It's great for a two night stay if you enjoy it for what it is. The hotel itself is a little tired but it adds to it's charm. It's enchanting, and I don't think any other word better fits.

There is only one dining room for dinner and it's quite compact, so if at full capacity you can at times, depending on where you are sitting, feel a little over heard. But it's not enough to ruin the experience. The food is good. It's not fine dining at it's best but it's still of a good standard.

The only downside to this hotel is the lack of bar area. It's the only thing that's missing, which is a real shame! But not the end of the world.

The Sauna and Steam room are quite small so if a busy day, not as enjoyable. But if quiet and pool area not that busy, it's perfect. Especially nipping out for a quick dip in the outside hot tub!

Think to truly enjoy this hotel, probably best to visit during the week! As long as you don't min a quieter hotel experience.

Room Tip: Wymcrofte room was magical, but the kitchen fans directly outside make it a little noisy. It's w...

I've been going to Bailiffs Court for years.Its london prices,but not west end service.Be prepared to wait an age for your sandwiches and coffee and the food in the restaurant is nothing to rave about.Beware of the champagna con ! On a recent visit with we ordered two glasses of house champagne but the guy in the kilt said 'normal or rose ' we opted for rose~ not realizing it was £25 per glass as opposed to about £12 for the other,until we got our bill.We had 4 glasses thats £100, and after we enquired,a bottle of it was £95,and we felt this should have been suggested at least you get nearly 6 glasses from it.Be warned!However,the SPA is excellant and the staff very professional.The hotel has a lovely feel and is in a beautiful setting and most of the staff lovely,but SOMETHING just lets it down at times, a pity.

Room Tip: go for one of the modern rooms, unless its winter then go 4 poster with fire in room
