“Great experience!”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

Staying here overnight for a recent business meeting I was pleasantly surprised throughout my experience at the hotel.

Reception welcome was very professional, friendly and efficient.

Room was as expected from a period building, although the photos looked much better than my room - a colleague who stayed at the same time though apparently got a very grand and impressing room though.

Another business event was happening at the same time as we arrived which enabled us to try bird handling and archery was a fantastic experience - not sure we should of got involved, but this certainly added to my 5 star award for this hotel!

Dinner in the restaurant was great - fine dining (with the appropriate price tag of course!) but a great quality dishes, very impressed and satisfied!

Breakfast was fresh with a good selection. Also eggs made to order were of good quality.

Business facilities and buffet lunch was superb which would certainly encourage me to use this option again.

Room Tip: there is apparently room which a secret door to a secret room!?

We chose the hotel in that part of the world because there are so many interesting places nearby to visit and it was therefore an ideal base for exploring. After seeing our allocated room (unbeleivably luxurious and spacious) over looking amazing gardens and sculpted hedges, the desire to go anywhere else faded away completely!!

The whole hotel is entirely comfortable without being in any way ostentatious. The staff are all lovely and I can recommend staying there to anyone except possibly extreme partygoes. When we arrived there were 2 separate events going on, wedding and birthday and a japanese coach party arrived as we were checking in yet the quality of the staff never faltered.

Recommend this very highly.

Room Tip: All seemed very good quality

This is a lovely hotel although I agree with a previous reviewer that it does feel like you are staying in a grand stately home. The staff are all very friendly and very helpful. Rooms are very comfortable and the spa is f a good standard. The only downside in my humble opinion was the lack of choice of hot meals on the bar menu.
Would definitely recommend a few days here to relax and visit Stratford Upon Avon.

This is a lovely place to stay and they have some fantastic topiary in a formal garden setting although the fishpond is somewhat neglected.
Breakfast if a buffet arrangement which means the food sits around under hot lights for some time. The bacon could be used to shoe your boots with and gray scrambled eggs, how do they manage that?
However this does not detract from a comfortable room and excellent staff.
I would not hesitate to stay here again and would recommend a visit to the little ancient church at the side of the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a premier room overlooking the pond. You might see the heron trying to catch fish if you ar...

We had a fabulous break at Billesley Manor, fantastic hotel, friendly helpful staff for whom nothing was too much trouble and who made us feel very welcome and valued. Everything about our stay was great, with lovely food, of which I ate too much. We had a lovely, very clean and spacious room over looking the topiary garden. Can't wait to return to this lovely comfotable hotel set in a great location for visiting Shakespear country.

My sister and I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Room was large and clean. Bathroom was spotless. Breakfast was hot and delicious. The bar was quiet and comfortable. We compared the rest of the hotels we stayed at to this one, and suggested that the staff at one "5 star" take training here. It is a little off the beaten path, but the grounds are lovely.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the garden.

This is our third training course held at the Billesley Manor Hotel, the courtesy and helpful service shown by all employees has been excellent. After holding training courses at other locations, The Billesley has shown to be the best. The food was appreciated by all, to the extent that one of our participants complained of too much eating! Do not be intimidated by the size of the meals, the food is excellent and plentiful.

Room Tip: All rooms are good
