Great for a walk (mind the golf balls) followed by lunch in the posh clubhouse. The afternoon tea in the main house is good but order one for two plus an extra cuppa as there is too much.

Everything is first class at Mount Juliet, from the welcome, the complementary estate tour, the accommodations, the bar, the dining, and the Jack Nicklaus golf course. All terrific. The service is over the top – Mount Juliet could offer seminars to improve service almost anywhere else. This is a dream vacation spot; you probably shouldn't use it as a jumping... More

As a child we visited the Mount Juliet estate to play with children who lived there - the estate managers children not the owner! So going back to walk through the house and have a drink overlooking the river was a trip down memory lane. The three rooms leading to the bar were all full of younger people having afternoon...

We stayed two nights in a room requiring a climb of three flights of stairs to get to. There were five stairs down to the bathroom. The room had no ac and the heat could not be regulated by the guest (the bellman attempted to turn off the heat, but the room was stuffy and opening the windows let insects... More

We arrived at the hotel mid afternoon and found our way to reception. The main hotel and reception were not easy to find as the entrance to the property leads to the golf pro shop and bag drop. We finally figured out how to get to the hotel section after making a few wrong turns. The reception desk was manned... More

Great hotel. Staff top notch. Very friendly and accommodating. Had dinner in Lady Helen and Kendals. Food was excellent along with great service. The front desk staff very welcoming. I needed a pharmacy rather late on a Sunday. The hotel provided immediate transportation. Will return again when I visit the area. The tour of the estate from Dez was great!
