“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed 22 September 2012 via mobile

Absolutely Fabulous. The best hotel I've stayed in. The staff, service and room were 1st class. Set on 44 acres complete with a 1000 year old chapel , this hotel is really something. Staff are friendly and informative, the breakfast is everything you can imagine, dinner was not my cup of tea but that took nothing away from the quality of this venue. This is part of a chain of hotels call "Handpicked" and I thoroughly recommend it.

My wife and I stayed at The Ettington Park Hotel two weeks ago, and we would return to England just to stay at this amazing place. Upon arriving, Damien greeted us outside, told me where to best park our car, and then gave us a 'ghost tour' of the hotel and grounds (we had told him we are big fans of 'The Haunting', which was filmed there).

The level of service at this hotel is simply outstanding. I have never been so impressed with every member of the staff as I have here. The room was great, and the hotel itself and the grounds are simply jaw-dropping - I probably took 200 pictures in 3 days there!

I do not think I have ever felt that level of relaxation on a trip before. We know we will be back. The food was superb, and the pub, "The Bell", a 3 minute drive down the road, is very good too.

Thanks to the staff for a perfect experience.

I have stayed here once before and was looking forward to going back. It didn't fail to deliver and if anything was better than the first time. I had a wonderful time with my partner. The staff were friendly yet professional. The hotel relaxing yet impressive and the grounds beautiful and peaceful. The food was really nice and the restaurant atmosphere was welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we were greeted with a smile wherever we went. This was just what we needed. Hand picked should be very proud of the team they have here.

From the moment we arrived we were met by helpful friendly staff. We were upgraded by the hotel and the bed was superb, the room large and comfortable and plenty of tea/ coffee etc. The restaurant staff were so friendly and really impressive remembering our names from the word go. The location was wonderful, so quiet and peaceful, totally relaxing. Definitely worth another visit

Stayed here on business several times over the years and must say everytime I visit it appears to have got better and better.
Lovely rooms, very nice food especially the cooked breakfasts, a very cosy calm place to stay, a good place to relax and unwind after a seminar or meeting.
Top drawer and keep up the good work.

We arrived at the hotel in need of a quiet break away from it all and we were absolutely delighted from the moment we arrived. Welcomed by warm and friendly staff, we were made to feel at home immediately and taken to our room by the wonderful Damien. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone at the hotel and we were always addressed by name. The meals were delicious and the staff all absolutely professional but very friendly too. It was a pleasure to talk to Powal about his country and also to Sophie about the delights of the hotel in winter. Our room was very comfortable with a large bathroom too and the fresh milk in the fridge was an added bonus. The grounds were perfect for a stroll too. This hotel really should be available on the NHS! Thank you very much for helping us to unwind. We will be back!

In celebration of our wedding anniversary my wife and I enjoyed the lavish surroundings. From our warm welcome Coleen and Damien to the comforting afternoon tea in the Drawing Room. This was followed by the delightful Stour Room. My only tiny criticism was the lack of stationary in my room. The evening meal was taken from a varied menu and we were not disappointed; the environment was warm and romantic. Paval and Adam our waiters were most charming and knowledgeable. The pool was warm, clean and very well presented ans the safety regulations within the unsupervised pool area were reassuring.

Room Tip: Stour Room is fabulous
