“lovely hotel with a great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

I stayed her over night whilst visiting family. I was in room 2 which is wonderful; a great view from a big bay window and leather armchairs. Luxurious bathroom too, with bath and walk in shower.
Dinner was good with nice food. Breakfast was average with limited choice. Dining room a bit bleak but you can eat in the bar.
Not cheap but a nice place to stay.

Room Tip: room 2 is worth having if you can get it

We stopped at this hotel on a Sunday night mid way through an intrepid cycle from Boston to Lincoln along the River Witham. We were ready for a bit of luxury and we found it in this wonderful country hotel. The room was great (Room 2) with a beautiful bay window view. Our bar meal was excellent and the service was friendly and professional. This would be a great place for a wedding or big birthday celebration.

What a wonderful hotel. Beautiful function rooms, amazing food, friendly and efficient staff. I'm a vegetarian, and usually have to say so to the waiters, but no need here, they obviously had a table plan with personal dietary requirements - that impressed me so much! Thankyou Dower House!

I booked sunday lunch for Mothers Day and had expected it to be a production line of being served our food and moved on quickly to put as many people through as possible. I was very pleased that we were given time to eat, there was lots of room around the table and we could have a conversation without all the restaurant hearing what was being said and the food was wonderful. Also wonderful staff who were friendly and had a smile on their faces An excellent lunch in beautiful surroundings and a small box of handmade chocs as a parting gift. We will most certainly be dining there again. 10/10.

We have just enjoyed a lovely weekend here - we stayed in the Lodge, and our room was very spacious and luxurious. The meals were excellent and the staff were extremely obliging and friendly - they couldn't do enough for us. We couldn't fault it at all, nor could we think of anything to improve the accommodation, food or service. The Dower House Hotel, which is highly recommended, is in a lovely location next to the golf course, and we look forward to our next visit in June.

A family wedding and reception brought us to this delightful English Country House. We spent three days and nights in this relaxing venue. The host and staff were most accommodating and accustom to wedding/reception planning. Guests are treated as family.

The Dower House has a total of 21 rooms of luxurious accommodation. The rooms overlook the near by Bracken Golf Course and are fitted with very comfortable bedding and linen. The furnishing was very fine.

A fully cooked English breakfast was offered daily as well as a continental buffet.

Fire protection safeguards were built into the newer two story Guest House, with smoke detection equipment, extinguishers and fire doors in evidence.

Our family Wedding Dinner and Reception was held at the Dower House for approximately 140 guests. The elegant dinner was properly served and the meal a delight. The guests later retired to the adjacent lounge and the room was enlarged to accommodate dancing and socialization. A most memorable romantic night in a wonderful English Country setting.

The staff are well accustom to wedding planning.

Woodhall Spa is noted as being one of the best villages in England and a short stroll from the Dower House takes you to the quaint main street.

We had the pleasure of being invited to friends wedding reception here and therefore stayed the night even though only few miles from home.
What a treasure of a place! The hotel, rooms and grounds are lovely, very relaxing and welcoming, as were the staff who could not do enough for us and the newly weds, and delivered the perfect wedding reception also.

Room Tip: If you want a quieter room ask to be in the lodge which is about 100 yards from the hotel.
