We didn't stay over, but had afternoon tea for two in the bar area. It was delicious! I had informed them ahead of time that I was a pescetarian so they provided us with tuna sandwiches In place of chicken. There were plenty of finger sandwiches, four big hearty scones, two lemon possets, fruit cake with cheese and some petit...

I was greeted with a warm welcome at Reception then I took the lift up to my room. The first impression was good, the bed was huge! I have to say it was probably the most comfortable hotel bed that I have slept in. The air-conditioning/heating was a bit noisy and the flush on the toilet cistern was in an...

I booked the executive suite for me and my partner to stay in for his birthday, it is a luxurious room with great facilities! The staff are friendly and we ordered room service which was reasonably priced and prompt! I would recommend this particular room for an evening away. The only down fall was that the restaurant was closed from...

Friendly greeting on arrival, appreciated security door from hotel reception area to hotel rooms, which would stop any non resident gaining access to bedrooms. Breakfast cooked to order, very tasty. Room service very efficient, food was excellent. Only critical comment was there us no safe in my room.

My husband and I booked to stay for 1 night. Prior to the day of our arrival we were sent a couple of emails from the hotel giving information on our booking and details of restaurant opening times, location of car park etc. I found this a refreshing change. The hotel is stunning. We only had dealings with two members...

A group of 22 of us went for afternoon tea to celebrate my 50th birthday. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, the afternoon tea was beautiful with plenty of choice. None of us managed to eat everything. The staff were great and the cafe concerto bar is beautiful.

We regularly visit The Earl for Afternoon Tea throughout the year however we had never joined them for Christmas Lunch before as we usually host this ourselves at home. The restaurant is so beautiful and the food is fantastic, and as our family from France was joining us this year we decided to dine out and knew The Earl would...
