I stayed here on business - check in was great and the room was very spacious. I had dinner and the service and food was lovely. My only gripe was that when I checked out the lady told me how much it was and I said it had already been paid my company (which I had confirmed on check in) - she then literally barked at me 'no it hasn't' and when she realised she had made a mistake there was no apology and she was very cold until I left the building. It's a shame as everything else was great but maybe the receptionist should have got out of bed on the right side.

A lovely old fashioned hotel located in a lovely Lincolnshire village. This hotel has strong associations with the RAF and in particular the 617 Squadron and is therefore fascinating for anyone with an interest in WW2 history. I was travellIng as a single person but instead of being given a poky single room I was given a spacious twin room which was very well appointed. The evening meal was excellent quality and not overly expensive. The service was very good. The breakfast offer was satisfactory- this was perhaps the weakest aspect of my experience. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

We had a one night stay at the hotel. The building and gardens are beautiful. Staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. The bar was well stocked but it would have been a bonus to have a cocktail menu. Rooms are a little dated but the linens were perfectly clean and bed comfortable. The only negative was there had been a function in a room further down the corridor and this was cleaned during the night and the staff did bang about a bit and let doors slam which spoilt a good nights sleep. The restaurant is the jewel in the crown - something for everyone - well presented and very tasty - we saw other guests commenting on how lovely the food was. It really made our stay. We will certainly be back.

We love the Petwood, go quite regularly for a drink and food. We’re keen to go to try out the new menu when it reopened after a short refurbishment break. Service was excellent, very attentive and good to see old faces. Sadly two of the new dishes were not available, Bream, which we sort of understood as fresh fish sometimes difficult to source, and Sticky ginger pudding….which was more difficult to understand when we were told that was also due to inability to source ingredients. The food was very well presented, but for 3 out of the 4 of us both the starter and main were cold. Such a shame as my pork belly and fillet was perfectly cooked but was let down by being too cold to enjoy. The quiche starter was apparently delicious, and the pie of the day was enjoyed and was the only hot thing experienced. Will go back, if only for the quiche and pie!

Hi Elaine Thank you for your review and for coming to see us so often. I am sorry that the dinner that evening was not up to our usual standard. It was the first night of our new menu and sadly were let down by some of our suppliers with some of the new dishes such as the Bream. As I think i discussed with you on the night, we have had supply chain issues which have affected some of our ingredients. This is affecting the whole industry and not just us and is very frustrating for us too and I am sorry that this meant that you could not enjoy the dishes you would have liked. I have raised your concerns regarding the temperature of the dishes which I know we discussed again on the night of your visit and we unreservedly apologise for this. We do hope we get the chance to welcome you again.
