Our room (number 6) was over the kitchen so there was noise until midnight.
Beautiful place to stay with a warm welcome, our room was gorgeous and the food was very appetising.
Just be wary if you're not eating at the hotel and chose to venture elsewhere for food/drinks, the taxis were very expensive (the ones we could get hold of anyway). The taxi firm we got hold of were going to charge £20 each way for a 2.8 mile journey as they were coming from Craven Arms so we ended up driving and drinking back at the hotel, which was much better in the end. My advice would be to try to research this beforehand and try to strike a deal if you want to venture out in a taxi. But I would like to stress that this takes nothing away from the perfect hotel itself!
The surroundings, furnishings, breakfast, staff, facilities, communal areas were all fantastic and amazing! The location feels like you're hidden away in a country retreat but you're only 10-15 minutes drive from the center of Ludlow and some great restaurants in the nearby village of Leintwardine. Views are stunning.
A very welcoming host extremely helpful.
Bed a little hard, perhaps, but lovely soft duvet and pilows.
It is a very characterful, relaxed and friendly place. They take an unusual approach for the evening meal, with a set menu (no choices) but you can say if you have preferences and they will adapt the menu to you, so it is best to book some days in advance. However, it was the most amazing, wonderful food, imaginative, delicious tastes in 5 or 7 different courses. It is a lovely place, in converted 18th C barns .
Quiet, great welcome, excellent food, beautiful rooms
The quality of the food and the ambience - perfect for relaxation.
Friendly, helpful staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. Relaxing away from the hustle and bustle.
Setting, room, staff, all were brilliant.
The unique decor was impressive but with stone walls and floors the room was difficult to heat. Only one chair was available in a double room. Wifi was not available in room
the staff made us feel most welcome and breakfast was was very good
Tasting menu included a verbal reference to morsel? Food was superbly cooked and served, just minimal in quantity, although we appreciate that this was a tasting menu. Cost of three glasses of wine each was just under £50 No room service.
Location, history, staff
A fantastic place to stay with exceptional hospitality, in what can only be described as a wonderful setting
Only one thing you're a bit remote but I know that can't be helped.
The room was beautiful as we're the surroundings. Breakfast was delicious. Staff were excellent and very professional but in an informal manner. Had a wonderful stay!
We liked everything, thought table clothes would bring a lighter quality to the breakfast table, but its really a minor detail. As we don't drink tea and instant coffee it would be good to have a small cafetiere and some ground coffee available in the room.
Pure tranquility - uncluttered and tasteful surroundings. Friendly and personal welcome with good quality freshly brewed coffee. Lovely sitting room and beautiful gardens.
Old Downton Lodge is a wonderful find. We loved being invited to treat Old Downton Lodge as if we were at home. Everyone was very helpful, friendly and welcoming. You’ll find wonderful architecture, luxurious bedrooms, delicious breakfasts, it was comfortable and warm, set in a delightful courtyard garden, with acres beyond to enjoy, a very peaceful setting. We highly recommend this hotel as a place to stay when visiting the Ludlow area.
Quality of the rooms were fantastic. David, the Manager, looked after every request and the taster menu/wines were lovely.
Shower took along time to warm up on a chilly day
Comfort Location Peace and quiet Food
We were welcomed by David who immediately made us feel at home. Bedroom fantastic - four poster bed. Five course meal wonderful - relaxing sitting room so much so we were so chilled out. Slept so well. Breakfast excellent. Will definitely return - have already recommended it to friends.
