Lack of air conditioning a problem, ask in advance as only a few rooms have window units
Staff were very helpful,lovely room,comfortable.
Breakfast was very ordinary for the price,toast was laid flat in basket so was like rubber,great shame!
Really nice old building, beautifully kept, the staff were extremely nice and friendly and couldn't do enough to help. Room facilities were terrific - loved the coffee!
I opted for the dining room and regretted it, to be honest. The choices were limited and expensive or really expensive, £45 for a 2 course meal is fairly steep, and 2 halves of a chicken breast and a smattering of vegetables left me still hungry, the food was of great quality though. My fault, I guess, I didn't think to eat in the bar instead.
Comfort, style, attention to detail, friendliness of the staff....wish I could have stayed more than one night.
Trying to find the place.......driving around in the lanes, I either missed any local signage or its not there!
lovely bathroom if the jacuzzi had worked.with the exception of the hotel operation manager the staff were pleasant and helpful.
the bathroom lights yellowish in colour as i suspect they had not been cleaned for a long time.the bedroom chair was worn out and in general the room needed a considerable upgrade to be regarded as a 5 star establishment, at present only a 3star rating would apply.The window sill had completely lost its covering of paint and was well on its way to rotting away. manager failed to address these problems and did not want to look at the room when requested to do so by myself.not good enough.
The room was first-class (we booked one of the suites) and the house and gardens were a delight.
The dining room is far too small. It is cosy at best for evening dinner, but is completely useless for buffet-style breakfast. People keep bumping into one another or each other's chairs. We asked to sit on the terrace, but that was clearly inconvenient for the staff. This almost ruined the stay for us.
The location, staff, food, bedroom, bathroom
Mix up on bill at checkout but that said the staff quickly resolved the problem. We couldn't make use of the swimming pool
Staff very attentive especially barman after we had waited sometime for dinner. Food excellent but not inexpensive. Try to include breakfast with booking. Room very comfortable and spacious. Very pleasant grounds.
Drawing room unavailable during our visit. Apparently it was being used by a furniture company to display their sofas. The lack of this facility in a country house style hotel is not acceptable. if the weather has been poor I'm not sure where guests were supposed to sit during the day or take afternoon tea etc. The hotel has to decide on its proirities and if facilities are not available then clients should be told when making a booking. A shame because everything else was first rate.
The house and grounds are really beautiful, making for a memorable stay. Our bedroom/sitting room and bathroom were of the highest standard of comfort. The staff are welcoming and the restaurant is pretty close to Michelin star quality.
I wonder whether there is a sufficient number of staff in the kitchen and restaurant. On one occasion after being summoned to our table we waited for half an hour before getting even our mise en bouche. Admittedly other diners were served far more promptly. Lainston house is very expensive, and I judge this by the standard of first-class hotel restaurants in France. It was worth it for the stunning setting, but I must confess to a moment of surprise when I found that the breakfast was not included in the room rate.
The food was up to the standards I have experienced from Michelin star chefs. Delightful amuse bouche thoughtfully included. The room had amazing views, the bathroom modernised and tasteful. Wonderful grounds to walk in before dinner, bar and restaurant retained delightful old character.
Nothing, would revisit.
The hotel is very charming and full of character. The food was simply amazing and the wine list was pure bliss!
A beautiful building set on its own in the countryside with lovely grounds. Very private. We had a suite which was enormous, very comfortable and luxurious. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Attention of staff during the day was excellent
Breakfast was served to our group of wedding guests and tables were not kept clear
Wonderful views of the countryside. Drinks were exorbitant. GBP15.00 for a glass of wine. Doesn't correlate with prices at more luxurious hotels in the area.
Going down to breakfast and being offered two tables that had not been cleared and relaid. During our stay dishes were left on tables outside after the guests had long left.
Expensive but fantastic everything. A great way to finish our UK trip.
Amazing location, wonderful grounds, excellent food
not cheap though....
Just an exceptional hotel in exceptional surroundings with a great feel to it.
Dinner was superb, both service and quality
Lack of air conditioning
Great night spent here, excellent food, staff really polite and attentive will go back to stay again. Fantastic rate for the room through booking.com and got also got both rooms upgraded when we arrived
The hotel was lovely Booking.com however a total rip off Do not use them
Vat hidden til last moment
The house and gardens are stunning, as is the elegant, contemporary interior design. The staff were wonderful, especially the very gracious, mature lady, who greeted us. Special mention must be made of the space age shower room, complete with lights and jets... We will return.
The friendliness and service orientated staff. I loved the design and stylishness of the whole hotel and its grounds with one exception. See dislike.
Disliked energy saving bulbs in the wonderful chandeliers! So at odds with the stylishness of the whole hotel.
The staff were wonderful. The ambiance was charming.
The price was too expensive.
Lovely hotel, beutiful setting, rooms very comfortable
Dinner in the Avenue Restaraunt was very average relative to the price - if I stay again I will eat somewhere else
