“Once is definitely not enough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

A totally fabulous hotel, the minute you step inside, the outside world seems a million miles away. Everything about Dormy House is beautiful. It was hard leaving the gorgeous suite ( the hideaway) to go to the even more beautiful spa. There really is no need to leave once you arrive, the food is amazing and the service is discreet but attentive. 2 nights was definitely not enough and can't wait to return.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the stay in The Hideaway Suite. Dormy is a hotel that hugs you and with lots of home comforts & cosy corners means you can shut off from the world and relax. We do hope that we see you again soon.

We had a great time at Dormy House. The hotel is brand new, the service is attentive and the food is yummy. I couldn't stop taking pictures because the hotel has so many cute areas, and little details worth discovering.

Room Tip: Don't select the ones on the ground floor and make sure to ask if your room has a tub

My sister and I took our Mother and Aunt for afternoon tea, We had stayed there with the family 2 years ago for my 50th birthday which was very special then. But they have renovated the whole hotel its amazing , now with a spa. Log fires beautiful bar restaurants, amazing toilets, I have to go back to stay, its the perfect place for any occasion. We had a wonderful afternoon tea sitting in front of a log fire, a lovely gentleman kept the logs coming to keep us warm, think he was the door man.

The perfect English Hotel in the stunning Country side of Broadway.

Room Tip: All the rooms look amazing

Today, 16/2/14, after walking around Stanway we drove to The Dormy Hotel for tea , to make a reservation for our friend's birthday celebration and to have some relaxation in comfortable surroundings. As we drove up towards the car park we passed the front door where a ' doorman ' on the steps acknowledged our arrival; how welcoming I thought. Little did I know that we were being ' vetted' ! As we parked our gleaming new Ford Ranger a young man approached us and asked if we had a reservation, I said not , but that we were just popping in for tea. He immediately informed us that they were full . I joked and said that we would only be coming in for tea, but he again informed us there was no room. I asked him if it was because we had a large vehicle? He smiled and said not, but we felt that it was a very weak excuse and that we had been judged in some way and that can only be on appearance! This is an outrageous way to treat customers and reveals to us that possibly this hotel makes disparaging judgements about their 'customers'.
We have stayed in many 5 star hotels within UK and Europe and have never ever been treated in this way. Today we left our 7 series BMW at home and travelled in our 4x4; is it this that made the difference?
We will not be returning, neither will any of my husband's business clients , my colleagues in education and Ofsted and our wide circle of friends .
One very disgruntled Headteacher and Company Director.

Thank you for your review, which I was very disappointed to read. I'm so sorry that you felt that you were being turned away from Dormy House, this was not our intention, we were indeed fully booked as we often are.
Everyone is welcome to enjoy our hotel and sadly on this occasion, a team member trying to be helpful was misinterpreted.
So sorry that we got it wrong this time.

Love it, VIP experience from moment we pulled up on drive
Room spotless and well designed with a lovely stainless steel freestanding bath
Had afternoon tea and dinner - both great service, food very fresh and well presented, had a lovely surprise dessert to celebrate our 20 years together.


Spa was brand new and we indulged ourselves into pure relaxation for a few hours
Only downside was waiting nearly an hour for breakfast, but the duty manager did resolve the problem swiftly and satisfactorily

Overall fantastic stay, can't wait to return !

Lovely hotel in great location. Comfy room - very we'll appointed, comfortable. Good service, spotless, modern. However....... this place really does lack atmosphere. Decor 60s style, minimalist, cold even. Just trying a bit too hard. Decor very strange and not at all welcoming. Obviously expensively done but something missing. Not for romance. Restaurant, bar, lounge - all lack warmth. But food was first class so I would return just for that. But don't stay here if you are looking for a relaxing, cosy, warm romantic hotel. Try the Lygon Arms in Broadway itself for that.

Room Tip: Beware a lot of the rooms are outside the main building. Not good when weather is bad!

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We are disappointed to hear that you felt the hotel lacked atmosphere. The feedback we have received since our re-opening has been very positive in terms of interior design, warmth & cosiness. All these things are of course subject to personla taste and we like to think that we have created a hotel that everyone will enjoy.

We were voted the 2nd most romantic hotel by TripAdvisor recently and do our best to create a cosy, warm and inviting atmosphere. We hope that you will return soon where we will do our best to make you feel more at home.

We were attending a bite festival dinner at the dormy house hotel and booked here for the night. As the dormy house hotel and farncombe estate are part of the same company, they kindly offered and provided transport to and from the hotel!

The estate is definitely geared towards top end conferences, with large meeting rooms and dining hall. The room was comfortable with bath & shower, underfloor heating, ecover soap and fairtrade tea/coffee.

The buffet breakfast was average although the coffee was undrinkable.
