It's a Georgian house in a beautiful setting with an elegantly designed spa (& proper sized pool) and what always stands out for us is the wonderful, friendly welcome of the staff. The Chief Butler and tireless restaurant manager - all the staff - really go the...

They offered unlimited refills on everything (including the champagne!), not that we had any room for seconds as there was more than enough for two people. They also have my...

Spent a weekend here in November for a hen weekend. The staff were brilliant - every single person I dealt with was exceptionally helpful and friendly. The rooms were comfortable if a little on the small size (we did have the cheapest option though!). The food and cocktails were stunning. The spa area is very pleasant and well maintained although...

My daughter treated me to a lovely tea on Mothering Sunday at Sopwell House. Champagne, sandwiches, scones with cream and jam and a selection of cakes, all gluten free and absolutely delicious! And more if you wanted it. Lovely surroundings. Couldn't fault a single thing.

I booked this for my mum as a mothers day treat, as she arrived with my sister I have heard very good things about this hotel. The hotel is as clean as we last visited 4 years ago, the spa is excellent and so are the lovely people working there! I look forward to my visit real soon.

We came here for a friends birthday afternoon tea and sat in the conservatory which was lovely. The service was fantastic with refills of everything on the tea stand on request, and Maurizo made our afternoon by giving us excellent service. Would definitely recommend.
