Chilton Country Pub and Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Fencehouses
Reviewed 30 January 2014

we stopped for just one night, the staff were very pleasant and very helpful, the rooms need a little updating but were clean with plenty of hot water, all in all a decent nights sleep despite the little irish boxers ha ha.

Room Tip: A little dated but adequate for a decent nights sleep, the staff are very helpful and pleasant

I vist the Chilton often and I've got to say what a wonderful country and homely feel it has with it's warm atmosphere and very friendly staff. Their recent refurbishment has a modern twist but still stays true to the country pub feel. As soon as you walk through the door you feel welcome and the staff go out of their way to help you in any way they can. The meals are outstanding they come out piping hot and plentiful. I was there for a meal in December and I noticed there was a Christmas party going on in the other room but our service was just like any other night spot on!

My husband and myself have stayed at the Chilton many times over the last few years and we have book again for May this year (2014). The staff are friendly, eager to make you welcome, nothing is too much trouble. The restaurant/ pub, is charming, welcoming and very homely, the food is great, the wine is even better! Again the staff are friendly eager to advise on there wines, ales and the special of the day!

Room Tip: We have had a suite and a room, both we're clean, we'll presented with hall amenities! Altho...

Just before Christmas my family and I made one of our occasional visits to the Chilton Lodge. During the evening we were treated to a shameful experience of two of the family picking a fight between each other in the public bar.
We then had the ridiculous situation of the manageress doing her best to try to resolve a situation between her employers. What would have happened to them by door staff in any other establishment? Easy answer.
Basically, the paying customers were being treated with contempt by taking our money to pay for their shameful behaviour - we had our noses rubbed in it.
I recommend that if you want a meal and drink then go somewhere where you are treated with some level of respect.

We held our wedding breakfast and evening party here. The food was lovely and the staff amazing. We wanted a xmas theme wedding and the room was set up better than we could ever have imagined. We had a wonderful day and night and all our family and friends loved it. Cant thank the venue enough.
We have also had many bar meals in the pub which also cant be faulted. Amazing location, food and staff. . Would recommend to anyone.

We travelled from Scotland for a nieces wedding and booked rooms. We arrived mid afternoon on Friday and although the hotel seemed to be short staffed the girl who eventually booked us in couldn't have been more helpful even moving us as far from the party room as possible should we have decide on an early night.
We asked for and were served really delicious sandwiches which were really well filled and reasonably priced. Breakfast next day was similar, freshly cooked filling and served with a smile.
The bedroom was spotless if a little tired, however the price was very reasonable and in my view fantastic value for money and I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

Room Tip: The side away from the car park is best to minimise disturbance
