Stayed for two nights for a wedding. Room was spacious, beautifully furnished to match the Victorian building with a modern en-suite shower room. Despite it being frosty overnight, the room was warm and cosy. Safe in room and tea/coffee/hot chocolate, biscuits and still and sparkling water in room also. Conservatory the perfect setting for the marriage ceremony and the Woodland...

This hotel was brilliant. Fantastic location with views to the surrounding areas at every window. The room was cosy and very comfortable. Breakfast was delivered to the room as requested and there was plenty of choice to enjoy. The staff were very polite and friendly and made us feel welcome. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

The family and I went to the Upper House for a belated Christmas present, after we had seen Strictly Come Dancing, in Manchester. What a Lovely setting and the food was very good. They were doing a 2 and 3 course special for £16.95 and £19.95, even on a Saturday night, which included a 6oz sirloin. I had a ham...

We booked the conservatory for my Mum's 60th birthday afternoon tea. The food was absolutely delicious and the service second to none. Tea/coffee and sandwiches were all constantly refreshed. We were full before the hot scones made an appearance! Big thanks to Phil and te team for all their help and making the occasion special.

Good location for the Wedgwood factory and situated in a quiet, rural area (lots of green space, nice views and surrounding walks) off the main road. The Upper House is currently being refurbished and unfortrunately we had one of the rooms yet to be done therefore the decor/furniture was rather dated and the bathroom in real need of upgrading. The...

We've had Sunday lunch here twice now. On both occasions the food was really tasty and plentiful. Such good value too. We did have one occasion to complain about the temperature of the red wine, which was served colder than the jug of water we also asked for. This wasn't dealt with very well at all. The initial response was...

I received a voucher for afternoon tea for two as a gift. It really was a lovely treat. The Upper house is in lovely surroundings, the afternoon tea was delicious, & the service from staff was excellent. I would highly recommend.

We booked afternoon tea for 6 plus a 2 year old, without asking they provided a full tea for my daughter which we then had to pay for. Aside from that the tea was very good, excellent sandwiches, yummy cakes although the jam for the scones could have been of better quality and we were not given enough for 7...

I feel I should write to express my disappointment of an evening we had on December 19th. A group of 8 of us had booked for a special meal together. Some of us had been to the Upper House before and had enjoyed good service and courteous attention in your lovely surroundings. Unfortunately on this occasion there was no welcome...
