We stayed here as part of a group on a dancing weekend. The room we had was huge with three windows overlooking the grounds and the river. Other rooms were not as good but everyone was happy with the standard. The food was simple but good. Wine and drinks were available from reception. The pool was a bit of a hike up the hill but was worth the effort. Staff were pleasant and the service good. Possibly a better venue for groups and weddings than for individual travellers but i'm not sure of this. This is a great old house and the Christian Guild are doing a good job to preserve it. There are always issues to do with maintenance in such an old property, unless that is you have very deep pockets, but if you accept this Willersley hall is a very good hotel.
