Sopwell House provided a lovely location for an easy weekend break from London. The older frontage of the hotel and the grounds are very attractive, the more modern section less so, but it did not detract.

We stayed in the Mews at Sopwell. We love the hot tub. The hotel and its staff is great and as soon as we can we'll be back. The bed and pillows were so comfortable. Everything very clean. Great cocktail bar too. Breakfast is a splendid affair with so much choice. Food is excellent.

We were bought to the conservatory dining room which was very much...

We had a great break - room was upgraded compliments of the hotel. We stayed in an executive room which was lovely. The flowers were fab and well worth the money! The pool was delightful and changing rooms clean. My only criticism is the towels - not v bug or fluffy! Dinner was good food but we ordered some aperitifs...
