5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

We stayed at Mabie Hotel at the end of February. My family and many friends plus 5 dogs booked rooms to help me celebrate my Birthday. The food was lovely, well presented and plentiful.
The staff were helpfull,friendly,made us feel at home and nothing was to much trouble. The rooms met everyone's needs and more, as many had children and dogs. They were clean, tidy and over all very good value. We stayed in room one which was fabulous!
The area is peaceful with amazing scenery and fantastic walks..
We are already planning our next visit!

have just come back from a two night stay at Mabie House - it was our second stay. Very friendly welcome, lovely hotel, and amazing food. Both my husband and I agreed it was the most relaxed we have been for a long time, and as we drove away we were already trying to work out when we can go back!

We stayed at Mabie Hotel for our anniversary in February our room was spotless and the bed and bedding was first class and very clean however we found the breakfast a bit of a let down the starter buffet consisted of cereal or yogurts! no fruit!! there was no menu for the rest we were asked did we want anything cooked and were told we could have a full breakfast!!! in my opinion not £45 a night standard and there should have been a choice ,we had dinner on both nights in the hotel again I felt the choices were very limited the only choice of steak was Sirloin which can be a hit or a miss so on the first night I had lamb this was slices of cold lamb which was obviously heated with the gravy my Husband had steak pie again this was rather tough although these were presented beautifully it didn't make up for the poor quality of the food . all in all not the worst hotel we have stayed in but certainly not the best would only return if we got it at a special deal

We went as a family of
4 and dog for a weekend break on a very wintry weekend . Hotel and staff genuinely dog and children friendly and food excellent . We were in room 1 a suite which had 2 rooms which was great for us as a family . Rooms traditional and beds very comfortable Hotel is near great cycle trails and we want to come back in better weather And the dog walks were great .. This was a very pleasant and relaxing family weekend break

We stayed at the Mabie House Hotel for the first time with our little boy, for a couple of nights in January. What a great find! The hotel is absolutely stunning with beautifully proportioned rooms, wooden paneling and lots of original features such as the windows and coving. The scenery is amazing and so peaceful. Our room was as big as a flat and had the best beds and bedding - so comfortable. Lovely modern bathroom with loads of very hot water. Despite the height of the ceilings the hotel was lovely and warm with a roaring fire in both the bar and the grand entrance hall. The breakfast was great - good quality ingredients and cooked to order and the staff could not have done more for us. We will definitely return - with walking boots and hopefully see a bit more of the local area. Fully recommend - a great place for a romantic break or equally good to take a little boy.

Room Tip: We were in room 10 with a very large double bed and a single. It was huge.

This trip was in September for our anniversary and was our second visit as we had been here for a wedding in August. I had reviewed our stay then and so could not review again a month later as per trip advisors rules. However, the visit was so good that I must put in a review for it even this long after. This time we stayed in the suite on the top floor, absolutely wonderful! A huge bedroom, lovely bathroom and our own living room complete with huge tv. The food was, once again, delicious. We stayed for longer this time and every dish we tried on the menu was of a consistently good quality and consistently large portions. All of the staff are friendly and chatty really making you feel at home. I can't praise this hotel to highly, needless to say, we plan a return visit at Easter.

Room Tip: the views from the top floor apartment are amazing

Wonderful place to stay. The rooms are spacious and comfortable but what really makes the place is its excellent setting and views and the helpful staff who can't do enough for you. Great food and a great place to combine biking/walking in the forest with relaxation afterwards.
