The food was amazing! And we had a lady that decorated and looked after us all night she couldn't of done a better job if the place was run by her it would be a 5* hotel! I booked a meal for 25 adults with grace months ago me and my sister designed the menu. Now the meeting went lovely...

We stayed one night due to a local wedding. Our party was 3 couples in their 30s. All rooms were clean and as expected. Checked in late at night and had an OK experience. Family very friendly at breakfast time. Breakfast basic, but nice - all the things you could need. Lovely gardens surrounding breakfast room. Rate very reasonable. Would...

Breakfast was nice and always plenty of everything and always hot. We ate in the bar one night food was nice and again hot. The only moan we have is there's no entertainment and nothing to do...

After 19 years we thought as we needed to stay the night we choose this hotel ( we held our daughters wedding reception in this hotel previously, and it was a really good day then).

Best day we have ever had. The staff made our wedding so special it felt like we were celebrities. Sue and the rest of the staff went out of their way to make sure our day was perfect.

Bought my three children here for a three night stay, I am a single mum. It is so difficult to find a hotel that can accommodate a family and have a decent sized room with proper single beds for them and at such a good rate, most places we visit want us to have z-beds squeezed in or separate rooms....

Stayed with the family on the 8th August in 2 large rooms. The rooms were in the main hotel and very well appointed. Great large screen Tv and excellent WIFI signal which was free of charge.

We were only able to have 2 nights away for our honeymoon. We booked a room at the Gipsy Hill. On arrival we were very disappointed with the look of the place. It was outdated and shabby. We approached the receptionist to check in and we apologised for being an hour or so early. She was incredibly rude and customer...

The food and service especially in the restaurant was excellent. The hotel clearly has rooms renovated for a niche clientele, as I was on business I was put in a standard double. Unfortunately with the exception of the ultra modern tv on a stand, the room was dreadful. I cannot lay claim to it being unclean as it seemed fine...
