“A Xmas event like no other”
Reviewed 8 December 2007

Having to book a Christmas event for 18 people is no mean feat and to ensure that you get elegance in a hotel and great food is always a challenge. Also having stopped in a number of hotels I have had varied experiences at Christmas, not always good .Ettington Park l rose to this challenge and we were not disappointed. There service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Mohammed was our host for the evening and was fantastic. Normally I have found that mass produce food is very bland at this time of the year, again the food was wonderful. A big thanks to the chef.
The hotel is set in the most beautiful grounds and what a ‘WOW’ factor when you drive up the house in the evening. The rooms were beautiful and everything letter or information left in the room was personalised. What a lovely touch in the evening to have room service along with fresh fruit and home made chocolates
A number of us sat up to the early hours chewing over the fatted cow, again the night staff accommodated our needs until 05.15a.m.
We will most definitely be returning and recommending everyone who would like a weekend away, or even a sales meeting to go to Ettington Park.

Fabulous location in the most gorgeous countryside. If you like eccentric, grand country house stays then this is worth a look. Not cheap but has a charm that makes the extra expense worthwhile. Good menu; excellent selection of english cheeses; helpful and pleasant staff. Perfect for a weekend away from the kids.

It was our daughters wedding venue and what a place to have a wedding. Everything was perfect from start to finish and everyone had a fantastic time. The staff fell over backwards to make sure everything was ok, the rooms were beautiful and the building and grounds are gorgeous. So much to see and do. The food was top class and would like to have stayed a week but the fairy tail wedding celebrations came to an end the next day and we had to return to reality.

We only stayed one night at the Ettington Park and wished it could have been more. The surroundings were stunningly beautiful. The staff were very helpful and very attentive, they even advised us on the best way to see the local attractions. The room we had was above expectations, the pool was an added luxury. The breakfast we had was outstanding, we could not fault any part of our stay.

My wife and I just returned from a month long trip to Europe and had the pleasure of staying at Ettington park during our UK swing We found the property so interesting that we feel compelled to write this longish review.

Before we left the US my wife had gone on line and booked a night at Ettington Park which looked interesting and was about where we wanted to begin our weeklong tour of the UK and Scotland countryside.

Upon arrival at Ettington we were immediately impressed and excited. The drive up to the property was exquisite and we knew before we walked in that we would like the property. The greeting by the staff as well as all of the interaction we had with them was amazing.

As a matter of fact, when we were talking with Catherine at the front desk, and in conversation, mentioned that we had no plans after here other than to tour the countryside while working our way up to Edinburgh it was she who recommended that we consider staying at some of the other properties owned by this hotel group (we did not even know there were others). She ended up booking us in at Wood Hall, Norton House and Rookery Hall.

Without going into extensive detail we had the opportunity to stay and dine at each of these hotels and found them each unique and wonderful in their own way (Ettington was our favorite, definitely the best staff).

What we found extremely interesting was the development and implementation of the brand and the way in which it was carried out. They have done an amazing job and this groups collection of country estates are one of the few hotel properties that we would stay at based solely on the basis of who owns it!

Just returned from an overnight stay at Ettington Park. The building and grounds are wonderful however although the standard room we stayed in was comfy and clean enough, decoration was a little 'tired' looking and not as sumptuous as some of the website photos look (although the more expensive rooms may be different). Breakfast was served promptly to the room in the morning and was very good. The pool/sauna facilities are nice but don't expect the pool you see advertised on the 'Hand Picked' website - this was either a good angle or they've stretched the photo to look twice the size! Just a warning to anybody staying on a Sunday night and not planning to eat in the hotel ; taxi's are double time and so return to Stratford costs approx £40. Plus when we got into the town centre at about 8.45 p.m we could not get a meal; all restaurants had stopped serving and so we ended up in the curry house - although it was a good curry.
Overall the hotel is definately worth seeing just be aware that you are a little isolated especially for night time eating, drinking etc apart from hotel facilities.

Just got back from a 2 night stay in an executive double room.
This is a very nice and comfortable hotel and a definite cut above some 4 stars i,ve stayed in. Being fussy the only and main gripe i would have is that there were some conferences going on which meant that at times there were some 'communal' rooms that we couldn't visit but i guess this is the way the hotel makes their money. Overall we really enjoyed are stay. Four star is about right. The staff bar none were fantasic and helpful and no question was to much trouble.
