“Pleasant New Year's stay”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

We stayed at the Dower House for two nights over New Year, whilst visiting friends in Woodhall Spa. We were placed in the annexe and found on checking into the room that it had a shower over bath, with quite a climb over the edge of the bath. It was our fault that we had omitted to notify the Hotel that I am disabled and to request a room with walk-in shower, but we were very soon re-allocated into a room with a wonderful wet room. The staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating.
The standard of cleanliness throughout the Hotel is exemplary, and the breakfast very good. The view over the golf course is most attractive,and we imagine that Woodhall Spa and the Dower House would make for a very pleasant weekend during the summer months (particularly if you are a golfer!)

Room Tip: Check the rates with a comparison website first, as if you book directly with the Hotel, they may ch...

While on company businees my colleague and I booked into this hotel, its the usual hotel the company uses so they get lots of business from our company. The staff apart from the manager was courteous and friendly, shame the manager doesnt know how to smile which would make it a friendly place to stay.

We were extremely pleased with our stay at this hotel and were upgraded on arrival to the suite. Beautiful building, comfortable rooms, great shower and lovely location. The staff were extremely attentive and we'd definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: the suite in the lodge was brilliant

All fine, nice clean rooms, helpful staff. Found ambiance of dining room a bit odd but otherwise a really good stay. Food very good. Management extremely helpful. Plenty of hot water and nice bathrooms.

Stayed October 2013, travelled with family

This was the best deal on Laterooms for hotels in the area and we were overjoyed when they kindly upgraded our room (free of charge) upon arrival. It was so indulgent, i even rang down to reception to make sure there hadn't been a mistake. The lodge building is about 2 years old and there are about 6 room on each of the 3 floors. The decor throughout is still very "new" & clean. All of the staff were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We spent one evening in the hotel with our friends and it was as if we were entertaining in our own living room (although with a lot more grandeur). The team made us all very welcome indeed. This is where we are going to stay for all future visits to Woodhall Spa. A very big thank you to everyone at the Dower House. PS: Pop along the lane for a brisk walk and take in the Kinema in the Woods.

Room Tip: We booked 2 rooms (Standard & Superior) but were upgraded to Superior (2nd flr) & Suite (1st...

We found this hotel on laterooms.com and booked as part of my wife’s surprise birthday break. It is set in wooded grounds, surrounded by trees, hedges and a nearby golf course. Beautifully restored Victorian décor in the main building and this elegance continues to the lodge (which is where our room was situated). The lodge is a small walk through the garden from the main building, or you can park next to it with the spaces provided. Our room was a standard double, but it was unbelievably large. From the main entrance you can walk to the bedroom (which has a desk, TV and huge double bed) or into the spacious bathroom. My wife was over the moon and commented on how it was one of the most clean and wonderful hotels she has ever stayed in (and she goes away on business quite a lot).

We didn’t dine in the restaurant that evening, but we did enjoy a full breakfast the following morning. There was a vegetarian option too, along with the usual juices, cereals, toast, etc. The sausages were locally sourced and were beautiful. There were also locally made biscuits in the room, which were very nice indeed.

We found the staff to be polite, informative and courteous.

We will definitely be staying there again.

Room Tip: Standard rooms are as good as the more expensive larger room.

We recently got married at the Dower House in Woodhall Spa at the end of October and we could not have asked for a better location.
The hotel was perfect in everyway for our small 30 people wedding ceremony, reception and evening party.

We arranged our wedding with Ann Dobbs at the Dower House and she took everything in her stride. The Dower House was perfect for us, Ann and the staff at the hotel tailor made everything we asked for, we were treated like this was the biggest wedding of the year at the hotel and we had all of the staff's time and attention, nothing was too much trouble for anyone at the hotel. At no point did we feel like this was "just another wedding" at the Dower House, we honestly felt amazing!

The food during our wedding was out of this world! All home cooked onsite and nothing was processed...all 3 courses of our wedding guests plates were empty.

Both myself and my new Wife, would like to thank everyone at the hotel for everything they did. From the house keeping staff, who keep the rooms impeccably clean and tidy. I as the groom, stayed in room 7 on the night before the wedding and had a great nights sleep in preparation for the big day. (Please make sure you try the home made shortbread in the rooms, it is amazing!)

We stayed in the Hotchkins suite on the wedding day and this room is unbelievable and has to be seen! Huge double bed, large bath room with bath and a brilliant rain style shower head.

The reception staff who greeted us to warmly on our exit and helped with any request quickly and without fuss were superb, to the bar and waiter staff on our wedding day, we can only say thank you for everything, we had an unforgettable day & evening party.

Thoroughly recommended to everyone.
