This night away was bought for us by our children for Christmas. We had a lovely room with an amazing view. There were lots of little extras in the room which were appreciated and even a fridge with fresh milk on the landing. The staff were all excellent individually and I am sure that as they work together they will...

Recently enjoyed two nights here. Staff make the place, nothing is too much trouble. Food is delicious, both breakfast and dinner. Be aware when looking at guests photos that bar and dining area have been recently refurbished.

Great location, very relaxing. Food and drink very good, maybe a little expensive in the restaurant. All staff very helpful and friendly, Joe who works behind the bar was very attentive and deserves a special mention. My room had a stain on the carpet which the management did apologise and offered a free drink, which was appreciated as at that...

I have posted this review based on our previous visit to The Cottage approximately 2.5 years ago. The food on our first visit was a wonderful, but on our latest visit it was just ok. Certainly not bad, but nothing outstanding. I am sure guests who have visited before will know exactly what I mean. The hotel rooms on our...

Having a last minute requirement for a room in this location I saw the excellent reviews and chose this hotel. On arrival the room was cold as it had no heating on and the windows wide open at 8pm in the evening. Despite the high room charge it was very unfortunate that the room (No.5) which I had was apparently...

We visited the newly refurbished restaurant 1919 at The Cottage in the Woods recently and enjoyed a lovely evening. The staff were attentive and courteous and Gianluca is an asset, along with their excellent chef. The wall paper in the dining room is stunning and so conducive to the surroundings and location of The Cottage in the Woods. Thank you...

Myself and my partner went to the Cottage in the Wood to celebrate my birthday and was blown away by the service and incredible food! The bar and restaurant looks amazing with the recent renovations and we couldn't fault the service, all staff are so friendly and the food was faultless, so lucky to have this on our door step!...

We knew before we arrived that the restaurant etc were closed. This was fully explained to us beforehand and indeed the prices have been reasonably reduced whilst this work is being completed. They had got my booking wrong, by a day, but very quickly found us a beautiful room. My daughter and I enjoyed having the breakfast delivered to our...

On the off chance that the hotel managers read their reviews, I am sitting here with an overnight bag packed feeling just a tad annoyed... my husband booked a night at the hotel as a late Christmas present for the two of us. We have visited the hotel several times over the past 8 years, and I was looking forward...

The restaurant and bar will be open again in March. I do hope you will consider staying with us again. We very much value your visits and we love seeing...
