“Perfect getwaway”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Billesley Manor Hotel for a much needed break from commitments of home and work. Its a calm, quiet , peaceful place to get away from it all. The staff were attentive . Easy reach to Stratford and surrounding areas. I would recommend this hotel to my friends.

A four star hotel which has the natural feel of a private manor: chic and laidback at the same time. Delicious food, efficient and friendly staff and the most beautiful atmosphere (especially in the wood panelled great hall and restaurant). We had a huge room in the modern wing. The comfort and silence amply made up for the lack of character. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

A lovely hotel and setting but the food was truly average. Breakfast great range but hot food lukewarm and had been sitting under warmers for decades - soggy, fatty and processed sausages. We ate the a la carte the first evening and then tried the bar food on the second night but all were pretty awful. If you want a tasty meal don't stay here. Thankfully the wine was fine. Apart from the food the hotel and setting were glorious.

This hotel is everything that most of the reviews say it is. Lovely building, great staff, great food and wonderful facilities. It was my birthday so first round was on me. All drinks were priced as OBE would expect from such a place but the champagne (which was not a name) was £17 for two flute size glasses!! My wife booked us a superior luxury room as it was my birthday. The room was fabulous with a four poster bed, panelled walls and en suite. The tv was useless as the picture kept pixelating and the order of Chanel's was all over the place. Wifi was good but went off at midnight. Why would I want wifi after midnight?....because the noise from the people attending a company conference went on till three in the morning! It was so noisy I was able to record it on my phone from inside our room! To add to the misery, the smoking area is just inside one of the main entrances to the hotel. This entrance is located immediately below the en suite of the room that we were in. The relentless pervasion of cigaret smoke into our room was disgusting. The door to the restaurant is right by this smoking area and as the staff come in and out with the food the stink of smoke is wafted into the restaurant. So, questions........why is the smoking area of such a prestige establishment located in such a stupid place, designed to cause maximum discomfort to any localised non smokers? Why didn't any member of staff speak to the early morning revellers and ask them to go somewhere else? Great place but we shall not be returning.

Room Tip: Not room number 5!!! It is situated above a designated smoking area and it stinks.

Thank you for your review and I am sorry I did not have the opportunity to meet with you while at the hotel. I am pleased that we met all your expectations during your stay, but this was detracted by the issue experienced by the use of our out door terrace area. We will certainly take the feedback constructively.

Excellent surroundings and large historic hotel. Very interesting. Staff were very pleased to help. Leisure facilities with pool, sauna and steam room very well kept. Relaxing to use and not at all busy when we went. Thurs to Sat. One criticism would be the bar food and drinks prices. Pint of beer and large wine cost us nearly £12 and a chicken burger with chips and small salad was £13 each. Lovely place though. Recommended.

Just returned from 2 nights at this lovely hotel, beautiful grounds, Staff very pleasant and very polite and helpful. The food was superb. The room was comfortable and next to the spa which was ideal for us. The only thing I would say is that the hotel was far too warm which made it hard to sleep. Beds nice and comfortable,
Would not hesitate to return and would recommend this hotel.
