“Fabulous stay , would recommend”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

We got a deal on groupon. The hotel is old , but we like quirky, it adds to the charm.
All the staff were very friendly, the food was good and the rooms were clean.
It was great value for money and we will go back. The setting was idyllic.

beautiful setting but the place is undergoing work, much needed, very old and tired. It is a Lithuanian hotel has been for many, many years so lots of festivals etc. are held there. Think the "voucher" stays & teas etc. are a way of making some much needed money but they need to up there game. Wouldn't stay in the hotel as previous reviews state, it is a mess. We had afternoon tea and although very generous, tea and coffee were luke warm and sandwiches and cakes cold from the fridge, which made the scones dry. Staff friendly and attentive but it is more like Faulty Towers-shame

I purchased this 2 night stay for 2 with breakfast & afternoon tea from Groupon. I wish I'd never bothered . It was supposed to be a special birthday treat for my boyfriend. The outside of the hotel looked quite nice but close up in need of repair. We were greeted by a young lady at the main reception who looked rather worried when I said we were early & was our room ready. She went off to check and was gone ages. Once we were in the room, well what can I say DISGUSTING !
In the bathroom " The Keep " where the door handle shuts into was hanging off,Mould in grout,
Cracked bath panel,Hair stuck all over floor,Cobwebs,Urine down front of loo.The element on the kettle was black. Stains on dressing table chair. Lock on window hanging off. Lampshades dusty & base cracked. Damp patch on wall. Loo roll holder hanging on for dear life. Cobwebs everywhere .
Afternoon tea - shop bought stale cakes, the only sandwiches that were nice were the egg cheese & ham .
We went out for the day & ate out as we thought if the afternoon tea was bad then the evening meal would be too. We checked out as we didn't want to be there any longer and was told that 3 other couples had left early as well for family reasons. We were so upset and would never go back again , terrible !

Room Tip: Don't bother going

I am amazed at some of the reviews on her. Headley park is without a doubt the weirdest place I have ever stayed. The staff know absolutely nothing about hospitality, it is as though they have arrived from another planet. The only thing passable about the whole trip was the breakfast. Avoid at all costs if you value your free time!

We stayed for one night as part of a Groupon deal with afternoon tea and breakfast and were very happy. We didn't seem to have the problems in other reviews, the staff were friendly and helpful and we found the room spacious and clean. We sat outside by the lake for the afternoon tea, the grounds are lovely. They had run out of scones for afternoon tea which was disappointing. The cakes are shop bought, it would have been nicer if they were homemade but were all fresh so no complaints. We may have felt differently had we paid more but think you get what you pay for, this hotel is a relatively cheap stay even without Groupon so not sure what some people expect! Nice to stay somewhere with some character rather than your chain hotels. Think there is a different between a place being outdated and old fashioned, there is a lot of history to this hotel and while some parts could do with updating, it would be a real shame to loose some of the original features. Overall we were very happy with out stay and went on some lovely walks nearby. Would definitely recommend for a couple of nights away in country surroundings without having to go too far.

we brought my elderly parents here for sunday lunch but were very disappointed - the food was cold, limp and unappetising - such a shame as although the building is very tired and dated, the grounds were lovely. Needs a lot more improving before we would return again i'm afraid.

On their website they boast selflessly, "your day not ours." Which sounds great until you realise they mean, "your day, your problem."
Was very happy with the price of our room and the room itself was ok, but did have some cleanliness issues. Standard tea making facilities were not clean and the carpet needed a good hoover!
After walking past the bizarre arrangements of sparkly twigs and plastic flowers in the hallways, we counted 4 dead flies on the windowsills and judging from the coating of dust they hadn't recently passed. Cleanliness clearly not being a priority all round.
At breakfast we weren't even greeted with a good morning, but instead a blunt "tea or coffee?" and "what would you like?" even though there was no menu. We opted for tea which came in a dirty tea stained pot and paired with a dirty cup and spoon. The full English was ok, and was included in the price of the room so probably quite good value.
This place is really beautiful externally and despite some particularly shabby areas around, the grounds do have some gorgeous views!
I would not recommend this place if you appreciate good service with a smile, but if you enjoy grumpy service with a grimace then be my guest! Or don't, I don't really care.
