On arrival we were met in person in the carpark, which is a refreshing change, and show into the hotel. Without even asking our room was upgraded and even though the staff didn't gain anything from this gesture it says a massive amount with regards to how customers are treated. The hotel itself is beautiful, the rooms are very spacious and the bathroom was huge! We also ate at the Coach House on the premises and the food was outstanding with equally good service from the staff on duty. Highly recommend this hotel to everyone and will most defiantly be staying there again.

We spent one night at Kentisbury Grange between Christmas and New Year as a quick getaway with my parents. The staff were extremely helpful from booking through to check out and made every effort to ensure our stay was enjoyable. The Grange is a beautiful building which has been restored to a very high specification. Both of our rooms were exceptionally comfortable with luxurious bathrooms and lots of extra touches including a Nespresso machine and iPod dock. We ate at the Coach House restaurant which, as the name suggests, is housed in the old coach house, another stunning building. Although the resturant was quiet, there was still a warm and cosy atmosphere and the food was absolutely delicious; more than worthy of the two AA rosettes the restuarant holds. Both the food and wine were well priced given the quality and attention to detail in the presentation. Definitely worth a repeat trip.

Room Tip: Room 9 - dual aspect with a freestanding roll top bath set in an enormous bathroom.

We arrived on a very wet and windy evening but the warm welcome given by the friendly and efficient staff made the journey worthwhile. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the room had everything you would expect in a hotel of this high calibre. There was a good variety of dishes on the menu of the Coach House restaurant and a excellent wine list. The food was delicious and well served. We will definitley go again.

A luxury hotel oasis with great food. The hotel rooms are spacious, ours had a huge bath and the under floor heating was a marvel.The staff were a gem always on hand and nothing was a problem, susie in the restaurant deserves a medal. The food was award winning but they don't apper to be about awards just great food and service. I had the duck liver parfait chefs specail recipe apparently(sorry im taking him home) followed by a waytown fillet beef, perfectly cooked and then the tounge cheek pie was a revelation. He had cured trout followed by lundy seabass,the presentation and flavours were unbelievable and we will be returning.we had no room for pudding so we shared the choclate tart with burnt orange.he did'nt get a look in after the first spoon.Back to the hotel the sleep was sumptuousand the silence was such that you did'nt wake up. What a fantastic treat in the lul after a busy xmas. The combination of the staff and serviceand product is spot on. Keep it up and there will be a few awards comimg your way.

My wife and I have just returned from two nights at Kentisbury Grange. We took advantage of the Romantic Getaway offer for our anniversary, which was outstanding value (2 nights accommodation + 3 course meal each night + bottle of wine each night also + breakfast) at £280. The whole project is in it's infancy and we were the only people staying there, however you can really see the potential for the place, with lovely and comfortable rooms, and thank you to Sanjeev (sorry if the name is spelt wrongly!) for taking the time give us a bit of background on the place, and showing us around one of the lodges. These self-contained units will be fantastic in the summer and could be a great idea for a New Year's get together for groups of friends and families. We really couldn't fault the restaurant as the food was fabulous, and the decor was very subtle and cosy, with a nice ambience and feel. The Coach House restaurant staff, in particular Susie and Nick were very pleasant and made us feel very welcome, whilst taking the time to talk to us about their plans for the hotel and restaurant. We have eaten in some fine establishments around the world, and I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a Michelin Star arrive here in the next year or so, so get in to the restaurant whilst you can, and before the inevitable price increase which comes with the success....

What a gem. Accommodation outstanding and well appointed in every respect with a bathroom to pamper any couple. My wife and I felt valued guests as the hotel staff could not have been more attentive. The restaurant is attractive with the right atmosphere to enjoy fine dinning and a good selection of wines and other drinks. Attentive staff ensure the right level of service to compliment the food .We can say no more than we look forward to a return visit - yes it is that good.

Stayed here twice in the last month specifically to relax and enjoy a meal, once with just my husband and myself and at the other time with a group of friends. The hotel team were great and very helpful and were generous with our room allocations for our group as it was a quiet time of the month. Rooms are elegantly decorated and comfortable with great bathrooms. The coffee and tea facilities are great (coffee machine and fresh milk in fridge!) But could do with adding biscuits to the tray. an additional little finish to the bathroom would be to add shower gel etc for the shower (as well as bath) but really that is nit picking. You must enjoy the restaurant that is the whole focus, the menu is limited but sufficient range for all but the plaice dish I tried (x2) was superb and the textures (chocolate pudding first time round was excellent) this place needs supporting. The sitting room in the main hotel doesn't quite work for me but as long as you are out and about enjoying the sites and area it is a small issue. Definitely a good place to visit.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for the upgrade rooms they are worth it.
