Don't let them put you in an attic room. To their credit, the helpful reception staff moved us from the musty smelling attic room with a pokey bathroom and low sloping ceilings to a room on the first floor. In that room the toilet didn't flush properly on the first day but ran continuously through our second night. Apart from that and the dirty windows, the room was OK, if a bit shabby. There is a new annex and perhaps the rooms there are better.
The breakfasts were very good.

Room Tip: Avoid attic rooms and investigate a superior room in the new annex. If a shower is important to you check it out before you accept the room.

This week I had occasion to organise a small function at Flackley, which entailed an overnight stay. Having been a member of the leisure club for some 3 years, and having read the reviews on this site, I was a little unsure what to expect!!.
What I got was very good. The function was organised superbly-thank you Penny and June. My room was spotless, well equiped and very comfortable. But what really made a difference was the attitude of the staff, who without exception were friendly, helpful, ever smiling-well done Maisie, who looked after us very well.
For local businesses who want a conference,or an away day or two for staff, this must be the place to go. The food was good, an impressive breakfast, the bonus of the Leisure club facilities, complete with Simon the fitness trainer, for whom nothing seems to be too much trouble.

Well done Flackley!!

We have stayed at this hotel before and had some fond memories. This time I came with a group of female friends and had a really enjoyable time.
We stayed in a twin room looking out over a pleasant garden. The beds were very comfortable and everything was clean and well maintained.
We ate breakfast and had our evening meals here. The menu was varied and our food was delicious. No complaints. You wont go hungry here!
The young staff all worked very hard and were all pleasant and courteous. Olivia has a lovely smile.
We will be back

Room Tip: It is worth asking for a superior twin bedroom as they are spacious and comfortable

I organised a group of over 30 for a (June) weekend and everyone in the group gave it excellent reviews. The staff could not do more to look after us. Considering we were a large group and the hotel busy too, the food was very good, promptly served and plentiful with the breakfast spread / choice a special comment. Everyone commented on having a good room with the first class leisure facilities a distinct bonus.

The restaurant layout meant that as a group, we were both on our own and still part if the restaurant 'buzz'. Lovely gardens for pre-dinner drinks as well a really friendly lounge area.

Last year we stayed in a corporate hotel that was very good too but lacked the personal touch experienced here.

Well done and many thanks.

Room Tip: We stayed in the original part that had the character and perhaps quirkiness of the original house - no complaints at all.

As the Red Lion at Brede was fully booked and the Rainbow Trout at Broad Oak only serve Beef on their Sunday roast every 3 weeks for some bizarre reason! We thought we would try the Flackley Ash. I am put off when I pull up at a hotel entrance and find the front flower beds full of weeds... I guess I expect too much but the food was quite good for a Sunday Roast @ £9.95. If you don't mind mothers shouting across the conservatory for their daughters to come in from the garden for lunch because they are too lazy to get up from their table, being given the menus before we had even sat down, very loud people at other tables eating their roast with their fingers, the waiting staff laying the knife and fork around the wrong way (with arms full of tattoos ~ surely wear a long sleeve blouse?), being asked when ordering mineral water "do I want a half pint or a pint", watching torn and dirty curtains blowing out of the bedroom windows, asking to have coffee in the lounge but the waitress wlaked off before we could order and was never seen again, having to pay at reception on the way out where they could not find the bill anyway etc you will be fine. Then I had an argument with some guy at the carvery who thought it was quite alright to barge into the serving queue in front of me without asking because he was serving his daughter. I had to remind him he should be teaching his daughter some manners as well as himself ~ not that this is the fault of the hotel of course. Made a booking with the Red Lion for a couple of weeks time as soon as got home. I ask too much obviously!
