    I particularly liked having afternoon tea in the garden area and admiring the serene horizon...

    I was disappointed that the whole of the hotel had been booked out for Sunday, my partner and I were planning to go for a swim and we were told that we could not use the pool...I would like to have known about this before hand.

    Lovely room and great location.

    It would be nice if more gym equipment.

  • Older travelers

    Good value for money, good breakfast. Good room as we had a dog and patio access was ideal. Nice grounds.

    Room decor very tired and dated, staff all totally miserable. They focused on their tasks, engaged with guests as little as possible. You definitely don't go there for the sparkling service!!

    Good value, (flash offer). Large bedroom. The hotel is very smart, roomy, with large, well apointed public rooms. It has a feeling of prosperity, ie. it looks as though there has been a large and recent capital investment. The staff were extremely courteous and friendly.

    The restaurant menu was priced slightly below fair and the wine list was a little limited. No wines represented good value for money.

    Excellent! I stay at the hotel one day, for business reason, but it was a very nice place, very relaxing. I have very appreciated.

    The restaurant was somewhat of a disappointment. The menu was limited and despite it being called 'The Grill' only had one selection of steak on the menu. The sirloin steak itself was very average, with the main problem being it's thickness and the way it was cooked. I ordered a rare steak and it was presented as medium to well-done. Very poor considering that the prices reflect a much higher standard of restaurant. Also, I travel to South Africa regularly and I know how steak should be sold and served. Also the bread was stale with no offer of replacement and the wine was removed from the table whilst still a quarter full. Not good. It is a shame because the restaurant could be stunning but is sadly very under-par for the prices.

    Great Hotel, great location, friendly staff, great breakfast all round a great experience.

    The shower was mounted a little too low.

  • Older travelers

    Excellent location. Grounds and buildings were beautiful. Room facilities were first class and bed extremely comfortable. Private balcony.

    Buffet breakfast - good choice but as with all buffets some of the cooked food was cold/lukewarm. Noise outside room - continual droning noise outside from ?air conditioning system or something similar. Would not take room 201 again because of this, but apart from this it was excellent. No lift facility.

    I love staying at Down Hall as its surrounded by beautiful countryside and is peaceful.The staff are wonderful & professional.Its a beautiful building with alot of history.

    My friend stays at Down hall alot but on this occasion we had to get 2 single rooms as all doubles were booked.Sadly I have to say it was an awful experience as during most of the night I could hear doors banging which shakes all walls.It felt like I was in the closet of other rooms.I appreciate its a Hotel with weddings but it was a complete contrast to double rooms or singles on the main 1st floor.As we use this hotel for easy access to work sometimes starting at 6.30,the constant noise was an awful experience to an otherwise beautiful place to stay.I will continue to book at Down hall but never in a single room again.I would only recommend double rooms (see next question)

    Location and peacefull position!

    My reservation made on line was not in the system when I arrived.Luckily you had a out of order room available!

    A lovely room with pleasant views. Friendly , helpful staff. A beautiful building with lovely gardens. My partner and I enjoyed the stay.

    The only minor problem I had was that the water pressure on the bidet was minimal and it was unusable. I never complained as I only had a one night stay.

    the beautifully maintained grounds and gardens and spacious room

    the noise made by guests returning to their rooms in the early hours after attending a function

  • Single
    10.0

    From the moment I entered the hotel I was treated like a highly valued customer. All the staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. The room was beautifully decorated, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was spotless.

    The shower head was set a bit too low for me and the flow from the shower was a bit feeble. It wasn't a big deal, and at the price I paid for the room through Booked.net it would have been churlish to complain.
