Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Went for evening meal . Lovely food great service. The menu was exciting and the food did not disappoint. Car parking was a bit difficult. Very welcoming staff. Main course was lovely and dessert menu was a delight. A really lovely place for a meal not a cheap eat but we'll worth the money.

It was a good breakfast, I liked the stained glass and old building, I liked the architecture. Excellent service, even 1.30am. Good porter. Shower was fine, bed and bar. I hope to visit again. I didn't want to leave really.

This is an amazing place. People make places though eh?! My first stay: 5pm Monday I was welcomed by (Amazing Concierge) Amy and immediately she made me feel like it was a home away from home. The Hotel has a great vibe, as evidenced by a very busy Restaurant filled with local customers and bar flys. I look forward to my next 4 days.

Took 3 guests for a meal on Saturday night, and was delighted with the whole experience. A warm welcome into a beautiful restaurant, and immediately felt welcome. All members of the staff were efficient, and friendly. The quality of the food was terrific. Cooked to the highest standard and beautifully presented. Very generous portion size too. Definitely returning.

Our party of 20 golfers had a marvellous stay at the Sunninghill Hotel. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff were very professional and welcoming. Nothing was to much trouble. The food, whether evening dining or breakfast, was exceptional and satisfied the largest of appetites. We only stayed for 3-nights but wish it could have been longer. This is a family run business and they know how to look after their guests. Simply brilliant hosts. This is a highly recommend hotel. We will definitely return.
