I booked this hotel for my Mum's 80th birthday as she and her friends are local. We were given a lovely little dining room, really cosy and warm. Our waiting staff were first class friendly and professional we felt very welcome. Our food was excellent and so well presented. I had a vegan risotto which was soooo nice! They can...

We stayed at the Ashley Bank on a recommendation of a friend, we were not disappointed. The staff are friendly and polite, the rooms are well appointed and the bathroom quite large. The road to the hotel is shared and could be difficult to drive up in ice or snow, there is ample parking and some lovely grounds surrounding the...

Annual visit for a Christmas lunch - and not disappointed. Apparently a change of ownership, but food and service still very good. Very nice to be able to hang around and enjoy a few refreshments after lunch without being hurried.

90 people in total for a Christmas party. Service, excellent, food amazing. We had a great night. I must say I've been visiting Astley Bank for 20 years plus and I have NEVER been disappointed. I will certainly be back in 2017.

Met my friend here today for light lunch and a few drinks whilst we exchanged Christmas presents. I can't fault the attention of the staff but ambience was zilch. No background music and no other guests. I questioned black napkins, (at Christmas!), and was told they were to match gold and black crackers. My light meal was far smaller than...

I spent one night at Astley Bank Hotel, on a mid-week business trip. Very nice place in beautiful gardens. Quiet surroundings. The room was quiet and completely adequate and had the expected amenities. The restaurant was very good and the food was tasty.
