Unable to have the family at home for Christmas dinner we decided to eat out in a Covid safe environment. Hadley Park House Hotel advertised Christmas lunches prior to Christmas. We opted for the 3 Course menu with a range of starters and deserts. We all had the Turkey lunch which was served with 5 types of vegetables including roast pots. All the food was cooked to perfection, very well presented and delicious. We felt very safe at the hotel and measures were in place to make sure we were. All the staff were very friendly and helpful through out our visit. highly recommended we will go again.
I enjoy my stay very much from the first moment I entered the hotel I was greeted with a smile and very friendly and helpful staff. My room was very good and to a high standard. Also the food was amazing. I will be back again soon
We visit a different Classic Lodges location each year for our anniversary, we decided to give this place a try this year. We booked online as normal, we booked dinner, bed and breakfast with a house feature room. We paid £165.00. Normally when we visit a Classic Lodges, we take part in whichever seasonal offer they have running, I am not sure if I booked this offer correctly, as we did not get the bottle of Pinot Grigio in our room on arrival, but we still thought it was a reasonable price. I received an email shortly before our stay advising on the Covid policies that they have in place, I telephoned the Hotel to make a query, as the way I read the email, it read as if you needed to pre-book your food. (I have the email open now and it says 'Due to the limit of space that social distancing allows, including our staff in the kitchens, we kindly ask that you advise us in advance of your Dinner plans'. I spoke to a very pleasant young lady (I think her name was Rhiannon) she was very polite and her voice sounded happy, it was a refreshing change as some people on the telephone (not at this Hotel) sound miserable, can I say I think she is an asset to your company, her personality is 5*. She asked if I would like to pre-order the food, I explained I would telephone back in a few minutes as we hadn't yet decided. We had a look on the menu and rang back, this time I spoke to a gentleman. I asked if we could order our food, he said we didn't need to do this, we just needed to pick a time. This did confuse me if I am honest (as the email said we need to let you know in advance of our dinner plans) but nevermind. We arrived at the reception and were given the keys to room 1. I asked the lady on reception what the room was like, she said this was the Bridal suite and comes with a four poster bed and a bath. My jaw dropped when she said that, as I love a four poster bed. The couple in front of us at reception had their temperatures taken, we did not, I am not sure if this is because we both checked in on the NHS Covid 19 app, I don't think the other couple had this app. We went up to the room and I fell in love with the four poster bed, and the gorgeous free standing bath. The bathroom was decorated nicely, it looks modern and I like the large neutral coloured tiles. We went down to the bar area and took a seat with some drinks, before we went through to the restaurant area. Our Host was Alex, can I say that Alex is also an asset to your company, he was very friendly, attentive and at one point when he heard me and my boyfriend talking about gin, he asked if I had tried a new jaffa cake gin. He was a very nice gentleman. We had a 3 course meal included in the price of the stay, I believe some items cost a supplement. We both had the charcuterie platter to start (cured meats, olive, bread and pickles) My main was the roast beef, with roast potatoes, vegetables, yorkshire pudding and red wine gravy. This was tasty and a nice meal to have on a cold autumn night. My boyfriend had the cod fillet with minted new potatoes, warm tartare sauce and batter bits. My dessert was the apple and cinnamon crumble with popcorn and vanilla ice cream (I am glad this came with ice cream and not custard) and my boyfriend had the dark chocolate tart with hazelnuts and strawberry gelato. I had 2 or 3 gins during the course of the night, I believe one of them was an elderflower gin and a Hendricks gin. They had some lovely jazz music playing for most of our dinner, we enjoyed listening to it but it changed to modern music such as Ed Sheeran which we did not enjoy. We had the dining area to ourselves for our meal (between 6pm-7.30pm) it felt very intimate. Breakfast was a choice of omelette, continental breakfast, full english breakfast, vegetarian full english, smoked salmon, avocado muffin, porridge, egg and breakfast sandwiches. Normally there is a buffet but at the moment that option isn't available. It is table service only, as with the dinner. Another couple in the dining room were offered fruit juice with their breakfast, however we were not, I had to ask for this. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the only little complaint I have is, when we went to check out, the lady on reception did not ask if we enjoyed our stay. She did wish us a safe journey, but it is always nice to be asked if we enjoyed our stay or if we had any issues.…
Went for the Game of Thrones themed afternoon tea. Room beautifully decorated as was table. Lovely Westeros punch, good tea and coffee. Food selection varied and interesting, choice of sandwiches, cake and scones with clotted cream all good quality. Staff particularly pleasant and professional. Looking forward to the Narnia themed event if Covid restrictions lifted.
The staff here are super-friendly and very welcoming. We were on the top floor of this period building up two flights of stairs. Our room was furnished with out-dated furniture but a very comfortable bed and the en-suite shower room was modern and clean. The food was outstanding. We dined in both nights of our stay as part of a package deal in the beautiful orangery. My favourite was the cod dish (well worth spending the slight extra) and the breakfast choices were also excellent. I would highly recommend Hadley Park House and would have given it 5 blobs for service and value for money. The only slight downside is that it is located on a trading estate which was obviously built around the hotel which is a shame- I imagine years ago it would have had lovely views.
