“you could not find a better hotel !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

Just returned from three nights at the Blenheim House hotel .. it was a wonderful stay ! .. gorgeous interior, roaring fires, a choice of restaurant food or bar food..both of which were great. A lovely bar with a great atmosphere, fab cocktails !!. The staff were absolutely brilliant.. and really went the extra mile.. even going to the shops to buy Gluten Free food for my friend. Really recommend this hotel, already looking forward to a return visit at somepoint in the future..

Room Tip: if I have one not-so-excellant comment, our twin room was a little chilly ... but the heating was le...

Thank you for your recent review of the Blenheim House and may we say what a fantastic one it was too. We try to give the kind of service, welcome and quality of food that we would expect when we are away and I am glad that, quote, 'you could not find a better hotel', I'm sure it is possible but its nice to have it said about the Blenheim House, many thanks.

Having stayed at this hotel several times over the last 15 years I have to say that this was by far the best experience we have had. On arrival the staff were polite and very helpful and let us into our room an hour earlier than the intended 1pm checking in time.

The food in the restaurant is first class and I would challenge anyone to find better food and service anywhere.

I can't recommended this hotel enough, you have to go!!!!!

Room Tip: Go for the four poster room, ultimate luxury!!!!

Great food, service and atmosphere. Would definitely recommend Blenheim House. This is my second visit, this time under different owners. Really like this place. Will be back and worth the journey (as a 30 minute trip) to get there.

Thank you for your recent review on the Blenheim House and that it was worth the 30 minute trip. Since we have owned the business here we have made many changes to the look of the rooms and the menus and so far we seem to be going in the right direction and with guests like yourself we hope to be here for some time to come. Thanks again

Lovely 'restaurant with rooms', well appointed and friendly. Great selection of drinks and the food fresh and very well presented whilst being good value too. Thoroughly recommended for groups and for a nice weekend somewhere different.

Very comfortable hotel, lovely beds, warm rooms, open fires in the public areas and excellent food and service. We stayed for two nights so we could take my 93year old father to visit Rolls-Royce. He thought it was one of the best hotels he had stayed in for comfort and food. Also for single travellers, especially women, it was a hotel I would have felt comfortable staying in on my own!

We haven't stayed a this place but we went for a meal to celebrate our anniversary, it was a Monday night, so it was very quiet. The young man that looked after us (owners son) did a brilliant job, from greeting us with congratulations on your anniversary, to serving us drinks and our meal. He'd even gone to the trouble of lighting all the candles in the restaurant, just to make it feel warmer with not being busy. To top the night the meal was first class, with a extra little treat of chocolates from the chef at the end of the night. Would highly recommend this place, we will definitely be back. Thank you again.

This is a lovely hotel where the staff could not have been more helpful or made us feel more welcome! The room was clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The bed was super comfortable! We had lunch in the bar and this, and the breakfast, were both delicious. The service was really superb. Thanks for a great stay!
