Emma and i got married at Billesley Manor on the 25th of August, after building a relationship with Jo and Naomi over the last three years although it was William and Jo that looked after us on the day as Naomi was on maternity leave(Hope every thing went OK and cant wait to catch up next time we visit) we knew we were in safe hands and can not thank them enough for making our day go so smoothly,such friendly helpful staff in every department of the hotel and nothing was to much trouble, the food was excellent, we had the lamb for main course and it was so tender and cooked to perfection,breakfast was very good so much to choose from and if i remember correctly on Sunday breakfast was served until 10.30
The hotel is set in beautiful gardens and ideal for photographs especially the topiary gardens you just have to hope for nice weather which we got to take advantage of.The hotel is so old with lots of character and atmosphere,our friends keep telling us what a fantastic wedding and hotel it was and we would not have changed anything.
Thank you once again and we will see you again very soon

We stayed recently for Nick and Emma Lewis's wedding. What a lovely hotel! Super setting and building, good rooms, food excellent - full marks! The organisation of the wedding was also extremely efficient - but Nick and Emma do know what they're doing on that score!

A well presented old building with lovely grounds, easy to get to and close to Stratford. With the exception of one of younger member of the reception staff every one of the staff I came across was pleasant, helpful, friendly and coudn't have done more for us.. The wedding was superbly organised and made everyone feel welcome and looked after. The catering manager/toastmaster produced excellently cooked hot food which was delivered quickly. Not the usual overcooked or cold meal that is often served at big occasions.Breakfast buffet was superb and the service brilliant-again very friendly and efficient.Lovely gardens for photographs. Leisyre club very clean and lovely swimming pool. Probably the best hotel I have stayed in.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the gardens are lovely.

Stayed three nights whilst at the APF Show. Such a beautiful building, lovely setting. My room was in the attic but was a very nice suite - a bit big for one but that is hardly a complaint really !! Proper bathroom, good size. VERY comfortable bed. Breakfast was OK, not exactly stunning, beans were the sweetest I have ever tasted - a bit bleurgh ! Still there was plenty of choice and I could have chosen better. All in all very nice. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Attic rooms are accessed by rather difficult stairs.

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel, I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay even though you found it difficult to navigate the old corridors and stairs of our country house to the second floor. It is a welcome challenge to retain the original features of the property whilst ensuring the comfort and enjoyment of our guests is upheld. I hope to welcome you back soon. Kind regards.
