“Slightly lacking but enjoyable”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 via mobile

We were bought a champagne afternoon tea as a gift and whilst we enjoyed our visit it had its highs and lows.
Highs were definitely the friendly, helpful staff; the cherry , 'proper' ham and the beautiful surroundings
On the downside, half a scone each does not an afternoon tea make, despite the addition of very small savoury scone bites. And our table simply wasn't big enough for all the single plates of food plus drinks plus coffee pot, (tho the crockery was lovely!). Sandwich bread was disappointingly average too.
The cakes were definitely the highlight, my husband normally refuses carrot cake but could have eaten more of what we were served.

This is an absolutely fabulous hotel with superb caring staff and first class facilities. We stayed for three days and couldn't fault it in any way. We arrived earlier than planned but our room was ready and was absolutely spotless with everything needed for a wonderful experience. The staff are great and nothing was any trouble to them. Edward and Lucy took this hotel on at the start of the recession but austerity couldn't be farther away from here. Attention to detail is paramount and I must give special thanks to Dan, the chef who catered admirably for my wife's gluten free requirement. The breakfast is excellent, bar meals are superb, but dinner in the main dining room is something else. The rack of lamb was mouthwatering as was the sea bass. The puddings too were inspiring as was the excellent wine list. Altogether a splendid experience and a highly recommended hotel. We'll certainly visit again when next in the area.

Room Tip: Slight noise from the kitchen extraction system, but it was turned off at night so would not affect...

I spent one night here and it is not the usual type of hotel I stay in on business. It is much more a venue for family occasions. Even so, facilities are good with excellent complimentary WiFi and a very good standard of food with a varied a la carte menu. There is very much a 'country house' feel to this place with quirky, individual rooms. I stayed in an attic single room on one of the hottest nights of the year, but the provision of a fan and the early opening of the window made it bearable. The room was spotlessly clean as was the bathroom. You get a really good, personal welcome and great service throughout. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff who almost make you feel that you are coming into their home - but they are not over friendly or fussy - they just anticipate your needs and deal with them in an efficient and personalised manner. The food in the bar/restaurant is very good indeed.

Room Tip: I had an attic room - it was more than adequate but quite small and a challenge for anyone over 6ft...

Wow, we had a great time celebrating our 25th wedding. Lucy, Edward and the team looked after our every need. We had the hotel to ourselves which was fabulous, as was every minute from arrival to departure. The food, well I am still dreaming about it. The canapes with pimms were just devine and the main meal was sublime. The staff are just so helpful and friendly and I slept like a baby. I can't wait to back for another celebration, perhaps some winter puch and seasonal canapes.

Room Tip: The Bridal Suite had fabulous views over the grounds.

Recently had our wedding reception at Washingborough Hall and could not have chosen a better venue. The building is gorgeous and is a really good size, it feels very grand but homely at the same time. The food was incredible! as is the Dan the chef who helped us choose the perfect meal. Lucy and all her staff were fantastic and made the day run very smoothly. If you are looking for a wedding venue then you simply have to check out Washingborough Hall.
