“A little treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

Picked up a laterooms.com bargain without really know what I was getting. Absolutely delightful hotel: great room, superb friendly staff, dinner to die for and breakfast excellent. Impossible to fault.

you have to visit here- the surroundings are superb, the staff excellent and friendly and the food to die for- Emma and Mark of the team were a hoot- the setting is magical- try the otter trail - we spotted kingfishers-

Room Tip: saty in the main house if possible

Once a month or so we find a different restaurant to go to for a lunch out with friends. Our friends found the Deer Park and as I said in the caption, it was simply superb. The grounds (seen on a gloriously sunny day) were "picture book". The three course menu was well chosen, delicious, efficiently served and - at a good price ! The light and airy dining room had lots of room between tables which I find relaxing and a great plus point. Any whinges or room for improvement ? Well it would have been nice to have just one local ale on tap as well as the two lagers, but nothing else I can think of.

Came for lunch on recommendation, have not been since all has changed. The drive and house are done to fabulous standard, the flower beds look amazing. We had booked a table the meal was priced at £12.50 pp for two courses and with a glass of wine. The food was fine, but the restaurant just seemed off. We arrived early and had coffee and biscuits and waited for our order to be taken, when I approached a young man and asked for a menu he somewhat sniffly informed me that I needed to have booked, where upon I informed him that I had done so , upon checking I was right he brought some menus!! I asked for risotto but this was not available and had the chicken, could have been a bit hotter. The money spent on the Hotel and all looks amazing but still a lot more being done, good luck everyone

Dear rosieSomerset,

Thank you very much for your review of the Deer Park Country House Hotel.

I was upset to read that you did not experience the Deer Park at her best. I can assure that this is not the norm and indeed from seeing other reviews this is evident. I have spoken with the Food & Beverage Manager who has looked into your comments and taken the required training actions. As well as speaking with the chef.

I look forward to welcoming you back in the near future to be able to show you the true Deer Park experience. Please do contact me directly when you would like to re book as I would very much like to have the opportunity to handle your booking personally.

Many thanks

Stuart Burridge

We stayed on Saturday evening, 10th May. Our previous visit was on the same weekend three years earlier. The hotel has greatly improved in quality and presentation in three years and these improvements are continuing, as witnessed by the fenced off discrete building works. I paid a £50 deposit on booking and a further £135 was registered to my card upon arrival. I was advised that the hotel has experienced some problems with non payment hence this policy which I have no issue with but have not experienced before. We stayed in the recently built/refurbished garden rooms. The accommodation is first class. Large room overlooking courtyard, well decorated and finished with quality furnishings and carpet. Very comfortable bed with good quality linen. The ensuite was also large and had a substantial corner bath with built over shower. Good water pressure resulting in great shower. The rooms are a short walk from the hotel and are adjacent to the rear garden. Present access is through the dining room which is not a problem but I'm sure the hotel will be changing as part of their plans.
Evening meal was delicious. Well presented, well served by attentive staff and we were particularly touched by the glasses of pink champagne we were presented with to celebrate our anniversary (I'd made a passing remark which the team must have taken on board).
Unfortunately, we had to leave early the following morning so were unable to experience the breakfast but I can be confident that it would be equally as good. These people don't do anything by halves!
We'll be back in a few years time and look forward to experiencing the continuing improvement of the Deer Park Country Hotel.

Room Tip: Garden rooms are great as they're new, but a short walk from the hotel.
