I was looking for a really nice location for my wife's birthday. We invited fourteen other guests - some with children - and wanted private dining and a pool at a country hotel about two hours out of London. We were not disappointed by Ettington. The service for all our guests was great. The wine and food were top-notch and the setting was perfect.

We had Champagne and canapés to start and then moved into the Library for dinner. Finally back to our room which was the Shirley Suite. Four-poster, TV over the roll-top bath - lovely.

The pool/sauna/steam was done really well. It felt like a quality place and they looked after our every need.

My wife was chuffed to bits and we'll be visiting again with the kids.

Room Tip: Shirley Suite overlooking the front is perfect.

We stayed here for our anniversary on 8 March and came back for an afternoon tea to celebrate my mother-in-laws 60th birthday the weekend before last. Whilst there was a small issue with our room when we stayed overnight the hotel staff team were fantastic in getting it sorted out.

I have to say that the evening meal we had there was first class, quality and service were superb. However, the thing that really sets the hotel apart is their staff. So friendly, personable, knowledge and also allowed to be themselves. It was such a welcome change to what you normally get at other hotels. We have also recently stayed at Stapleford Park which in my opinion doesn't compare. I would certainly recommend Ettington Park over and above Stapleford.

The afternoon tea we had for my mother-in-law was also superb. Again quality of food was fantastic and the grounds are just fabulous for my 3 year old son to run riot in! Again staff were fantastic, they are there when you need them and leave you alone to relax.

Certainly would recommend this for either a romantic getaway or family occasion.

PS: didn't get a chance to use the swimming pool and leisure facilities! We were too busy relaxing!

Room Tip: Stay in the old house

Stayed in the Shirley Suite, a lovely large room and fantastic bathroom. Although wouldn't recommend this room as I think there is a drain problem. When we arrived the windows were open and the room was freezing. As you walk through the door there was an odour but further into the room none. We had to ring to request a room service list as there wasn't one in the room. A rather brusque lady brought one up very promptly and said "there should have been one and that someone had probaby taken it as a souvenir", on looking at it, not my idea of a souvenir. I asked her if she had any air freshner, her response was "she had already sprayed the room twice and had we opened the window?" No air freshner ever arrived. Room service food was fabulous although ordering it was difficult. The phone rang for so long it eventually went back to reception. Where I was advised they had put me though to the correct number. When I did get through I was advised to hang on while they got a pen and paper. Back to the drain issue, the sink took for ever to drain and the shower tray filled up with water to the point where I thought it was going to over flow. Loved the tile television in the bathroom and the bath was fab. Fantastic hotel, grounds are lovely. Over all a fantastic stay but the room let it down.

We have just got back from staying at Ettingham Park Hotel. We really enjoyed the last couple of days. The room was lovely, with a huge comfortable bed and a spacious, luxurious bathroom. The grounds are attractive and tastefully lit in the evening. The staff were extremely hospitable throughout our stay - happy to chat but always respectful of privacy. Dining in the restaurant in the evening was a pleasure - a varied menu which provided a 3 course meal that was cooked beautifully, with an equally fine vegetarian menu option. Breakfast options were vast, and again the standard was excellent. We would thoroughly reccommend this hotel as a nice way to escape hectic life with a relaxing break.

Had lovely one night stay room small for an executive double but very clean and comfortable. Staff extremely helpful and happy to chat. They were able to advise on activities local area etc. you really need a car to get about though as hotel about 10 minute drive from Stratford upon Avon. Had great relaxing stay and would definately go again.

Set in the countryside, it was very peaceful and a relaxing hotel. Stratford upon Avon is not too far away for shopping and easy to get to and from. The staff were very friendly and did their utmost to help.
If your not in a rush, that's fine but if you are, the service in the dining room could be on the slow side.
The mattresses were new but quite soft and didn't help a bad back, other than that we enjoyed our stay.
