The Sharnbrook Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Sharnbrook
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 7, 2013

The hotel is located in such a beautiful spot. Surrounded by such beautiful green fields, you would imagine that it would make full use of incorporating the outside elements into the design of the place. Unfortunately the hotel is completely characterless. It is entirely shut off from the outside. The restaurant is one big drab and boring room with no windows onto the rolling fields. The rooms, while clean and spacious have tiny windows, drawing in minimal light and making zero use of the outide beauty. The staff have been lovely, the rooms are clean and well kept and the location is lovely. I cannot testify to the quality of the food. There is something missing here however. The owners had a blank canvas to create something brilliant, yet what they produced is something very bland.

Thank you for your opinion which you are fully entitled to although you quite clearly have not engaged with the atmosphere, classical contemporary design and character of our Hotel.

We are extremely pleased and proud of our design as well as popularity with local and guests from further afield for both the hotel and VesuviO restaurant.

Regards

We had our wedding here and I cant thank Ciro and his staff enough. From the planning to the day of the wedding was an absolute A class service. All of our guest have been overwelmed at how well the wedding was run and have said the food, from the wedding breakfast to the evening buffet was one of the best they had experienced. My husband and I cant thank Ciro enough for helping us make our day the best. Lots of guest have said its the best wedding they have been to.

This hotel is amazing, the service was second to none location is beautiful to use this venue for a function is awesome I was able to check in late as I was elsewhere and was travelling late and the hotel was very accomodating when I needed to arrive later than planned. The beds in the room and the amenities were great if I could carry the bed home I would. Breakfast tasted really good and I don't eat pork so the vegetarian sausages were yummy. Only thing the shop is about a mile walk but 2-3mins by car so if have children with you bring additional goodies they may need or want but all round astounding place to stay

Room Tip: Access to leisure facilities available

Our daughter, (and now son-in-law!) had their wedding reception at The Sharnbrook Hotel. From start to finish it was a pleasure to work with Ciro, the Manager, and indeed all of the staff.
EVERYTHING was covered perfectly from start to finish! Ciro's assistance with the splendid choices of menu was extremely helpful, covering aperitif/appetizer and then of course the main menu! WOW! FANTASTIC! Relatives who had travelled from Ireland and the North East of England were in awe of the food! (which was served quickly and hospitably). It was a most wonderful day from start to finish, and my husband and I are extremely grateful to all of the staff at The Sharnbrook for the efficiency, which was second to none! The Master of Ceremonies added that extra special touch too! All we can say is a huge THANK YOU to Ciro and his staff.

We stayed for 3 days last September as we had tickets for The Ferrari weekend at Silverstone. The hotel is modern, the rooms spacious and spotless and the food is fabulous. We loved it so much we have booked for 4 nights at the end of June for the Formula 1 and to celebrate my birthday.

My niece held her Wedding Reception here on the 31st May and a wonderful time was had by all.I was very pleased at the excellent service they provided and their food was of the finest quality. I had the chicken for mains and it was so soft it just fell apart. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food, although my wife's pizza was a little disappointing.(Slightly overcooked) Would we go again ? Yes, well worth a visit.
