Perfect for a Night Away

Anon, stayed: May 2019

As a brief escape from the kids, the hotel was perfect - we arrived early on Sunday and were able to enjoy the newspapers and a coffee in peace; we then used the spa, great treatments and given its small size much more personal than most; all the staff and service we received was of a good quality and delivered with a smile; the food was of a good quality throughout (both the bar and the main restaurants); we had certain other requests that were all dealt with swiftly and without fuss

Our mini moon

Ellie H, Avon, stayed: May 2019

We arrived on Sunday 5th May as we got married on Sat 4th but unfortunately due to full capacity we couldn't get an upgrade.
The room was still nice and the bar staff/waiters were lovely and very knowledgeable but I think i probably got my hopes up about an upgraded room as this is what generally happens with honey mooners .

Pure Bliss

Ashley B, Surrey, stayed: April 2019

I stayed at the Ellenborough with a friend so we could relax and recoup. Having stayed in some pretty amazing hotels in my time and this is up there, did not disappoint in any way. The staff were so helpful, polite and professional, very attentive. The hotel itself is just stunning, pure style, old meets new. The decor does the age of the property justice. The library, have a look, it's quite something. I think the house itself which dates back to 1487, don't quote me, that's a Wikepedia fact. I had two treatments in the spa, a massage with Anna, one of the best I've ever had. Dinner was exceptional. My friend and I wanted to meet the chef to say thanks, he was a little shy that night. If I was being super picky, two areas they might pay more attention to; the non existant range of grown up alcohol free drinks and the pillows were a little hard. But you know what? This is being really picky.

Recent stay at Ellenborough Park Hotel

TA, Warwickshire, stayed: March 2019

This was a special family gift for our birthdays which did not turn out as we exactly as expected because of the following drawbacks . 1)No glasses of champagne on arrival as stipulated. 2) Lack of shower cabinet in room and to expect older guests to step into a high and narrow bath to shower without even a bath mat provided was positively dangerous ! 3) On ordering wine for dinner at the Horse Box I distinctly ordered and got merlot house wine priced at 24. On checking out I was informed that we had Malbec at 37 . Rubbish but I suggest one of your reception staff has an attitude problem. 4) At breakfast we were seated, given menu and not informed that cooked English was available in an adjacent room !!

Excellent staff and lovely hotel

Anon, stayed: October 2018

We had a very enjoyable couple of nights.  The hotel was really great in a fantastic location for the Cotswolds.
Although our allocated room had a slight smell of smoke, the staff were very helpful and moved us without question. Food in the Horse Box was excellent as was breakfast. Outdoor pool lovely and warm and good spa facilities. Most outstanding part of our stay was the excellent service from very friendly staff.  In particular thanks to Russell, Jonathon and Jonathan.
