Booked Low Wood Hotel as the online photographs made it look amazing. Feature room with lake view - what could be better??? Maybe the hotel mentioning the fast main road directly outside the hotel would have been good. Plus other guests being totally thoughtless letting their bedroom doors bang shut - not the hotels fault, but then maybe up keeping... More

Stayed here for one night earlier this week for a special treat. Had the luxury rooms and they were very nice. When I booked I had specifically asked for two rooms on the same corridor - however when we arrived they turned out to be on different floors. However both rooms were lovely, and the receptionist rang our room shortly... More

We stayed here for three nights in September. On arrival we recognised the hotel from the online pictures we had seen. It was well kept with lots of flowers and plants and a nice entrance into the main reception area. Sadly the photos do not show the dangerously fast A-Road that divides their garden from the hotel. There is no... More

Back for another visit, out third so it can't be bad. Great service, great food and first-class staff. But if you don't like stairs ask for an accessable room - ground floor! Very kids-friendly but watch the main road between hotel and lake - IMPOSSIBLE to cross at times.

We had an amazing time at Jenny and Ste's evening reception. We arrived Sunday afternoon and stayed one night. Staff were superb. Very attentive and really friendly. Room and food were excellent (especially the breakfast buffet!). Such a lovely change to visit a hotel with real character, rather than the carbon-copy, soulless 'chain' hotels. One of the best hotels we've... More
