Waterton Park is a very good looking place but for us it didn't quite deliver. We stayed in the hall on the island and approaching over the footbridge does create a great first impression. The room, complete with four poster, was nice but not wow. The bathroom again clean and functional but lacking in anything to make it stand out.... More

Where do We begin to rate Waterton Park Hotel, it is the most picturesque beautiful venue we had for our wedding day. The wedding coordinators Pauline, Amy and Nikki and the team at the hotel could not have been more helpful, pleasant and attentive to our needs. The day went completely to plan and ran smoothly from start to finish.... More

This was our second visit the last time about 4 years ago. Both times we stayed in the cottage. The whole place looks to have had a make over and was lovely and fresh. The venue is beautiful and the staff very polite and helpful. We ate in Charlie's bar,the selection was good and the food was very enjoyable. Prices... More

We had an executive double overlooking the lake and Walton Hall.(They gave us the Honeymoon Suite which was really beautiful and spacious) It was wonderful, great staff, great food. Shame about the weather but still enjoyable. If you are an angler it is worth taking a boat out on the lake to try your luck at the trout as my... More

Stayed here at the weekend in the 'old' part having requested a lake view - the room itself was spacious, clean enough and whether you choose to call it tired or just having character it was pleasant enough. Again there was a wedding on so quite busy with people milling about. We both had the fillet steak in the evening,... More

Family room was good size. Decor a little tired in places but the hotel was clean and the staff were friendly and very helpful. The swimming pool was lovely and the changing rooms were clean. There was a wedding on the night we stayed but we didn't notice any disruption.

The Waterton Park is in an idyllic location and having stayed here before just a couple of years ago I was quite pleased and looking forward to being able to do so again.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and I do hope despite staying in the old hall you did enjoy your stay. Refurbishment is an on going project (a bit like the Forth Road Bridge) and we do try to keep on top of it. 18 months ago we completed a 1.2 million refurbishment of the reception... More
