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!
Only one thing you're a bit remote but I know that can't be helped.
Pure tranquility - uncluttered and tasteful surroundings. Friendly and personal welcome with good quality freshly brewed coffee. Lovely sitting room and beautiful gardens.
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.
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.
Comfort Location Peace and quiet Food
Shower took along time to warm up on a chilly day
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.
The whole ambiance of the place in a lovely location with very welcoming staff.
Thr position of the mirror in the bedroom for my wife to dry her hair.
This was a different experience from other guest houses, it's is a great location, bespoke layout, high quality finish and we we made so very welcome. Totally recommended.
Nothing to dislike at all.
Lovely atmospheric location to spend a few days,couldn't fault it.
The warm welcome from the friendly staff, the excellent accommodation and the superb food.
The long drive down the single track road to the hotel.
Quiet countryside location, kind and caring staff, atmosphere.
High standard of fixtures and fittings
A small well designed lodge that is superb in all respects . Very friendly staff nothing too much trouble .,
The whole concept of the lodge. Charming buildings, tastefully and sympathetically converted into wonderful facilities. Delicious food and genuinely caring, friendly staff led by a professional Manager.
very friendly and relaxing break nice room lovely food really enjoyable break
a bit pricey drinks bottle drinks a bit expensive
Chef was very helpful with my wife's dietary problems. Location is superb and the staff were very friendly.
Although it was mid-August, the weather was unseasonably cold and there was no heating in the rooms.
Seclusion, personal service and excellent food
Excellent food and catered very well for guests requiring Gluten Free option. The rooms are great and the team are so very helpful. Perfect!
Everything.... the stay was relaxing and very comfortable. Recommended to everyone and hopefully we will get to stay there again.
Beautiful surroundings, professional and friendly staff (nothing was too much trouble), amazing buildings, superb food.
extremely narrow 3mile track to reach it. uncomfortable bed, tended to dip in middle(but I'm sure if we had mentioned it, it would have been remedied)
This was my second trip to Old Downton Lodge. The location, rooms and breakfast were all wonderful.
We didn't like the flashing security light in the bedrooms which was very bright.
Food was really lovely - had the taster menu which was fabulous
Very friendly and helpful staff and excellent food!
The accomodation was excellent. The tranquillity was unbelievable All staff were very friendly and efficient Food was to die for
Did not stay long enough!
Everything about this stunning place was amazing from the accommodation to the food and the staff, especially the very helpful David. Afternoon drinks in the courtyard garden on a sunny afternoon a perfect way to relax, a real treat and we will definately go back.
