I arranged a special family celebration for my wife's 60th birthday at Stapleford Park. Four couples spent the Saturday night there and eight other members of the family joined us the next day for Sunday lunch.
The hotel and its grounds are fabulous - it's just like staying at an Agatha Christie stately home house party. The building is incredible, if a little intimidating, but our rooms were very good. We had the Wedgwood Room - a lovely four-poster bedded room decorated in Wedgwood style, complete with portrait of Josiah. Each room is individually designed, and though they may not all be to everyone's taste (Campion Bell is particularly quirky!) they do have character - you can always go to a Holiday Inn if you want corporate bland.
The service was excellent. Gabriel, who was assigned to look after our group for the whole of the stay, couldn't have been more accommodating. Some reviews point out that there are issues with service, but apart from one rather lengthy wait for a coffee order we found everything to be very good.
The outstanding feature of Stapleford, though, is its food. The meal we had on Saturday night and the Sunday lunch were fabulous - every single course chosen was excellent. We used the Billiard Room for our Sunday lunch - a gorgeous room for private dining which seats 16.
In summary, if you want to organise a special event, go to Stapleford.
