Lovely hotel set in beautiful grounds! We had a classic room on the first floor overlooking the front gardens which we were more than happy with. The first night we ate in the Linden Tree pub on site and although it was a nice informal setting the food was a little disappointing, they forgot to toast the bread that accompanied the pâté and when we asked for it to be changed, they returned with warm bread! The belly pork was served with a rubbery skin instead of crisp crackling! The second night we ate in the award winning restaurant as it was our anniversary and it was fantastic! The food was fabulous and the staff were very attentive!

Room Tip: We were on the first floor in the main building! We had a classic but more than adequate room, clean...

booked through secret escapes and did get bargain price, but the classic room was on the top floor, the room was small and like an attic room. asked for a different room but woud have to pay more than what we wanted to pay, yet the rooms were left empty. it was a hot day and the room was unbelievably hot, so a fan was provided, still hot. i would say the smallest 4* room ive ever had and therefore disappointing. the breakfast and spa was nice.

Room Tip: dont have 3rd floor rooms

Hi Dawn

Thanks for the feedback sorry we could not move you all our classics were full your room allthough slightly smaller does have great views and is one often requested for returning guests. I have amended your profile to ensure you are not allocated the same room in the future .I do hope you do return to enjoy again the breakfast and Spa. Thanks for taking the time to review its much appreciated

Visited last weekend for a spa day with my family, the spa was so relaxing! Definitely what I needed at 8 months pregnant! Friendly staff, lovely facilities and a mouth watering 2 course lunch in the hotel! Would definitely return hopefully sooner rather than later!

Let's get the negative out of the way - the rooms are a little small - well appointed but small. Now the positives. First a beautiful setting for a hotel, second staff who are polite, attentive and thoroughly attuned to the guest's requirements and thirdly (and the jewel in this hotel's crown) the restaurant where the food is so tasty and beautifully presented. To continue the restaurant theme this is a restaurant that all vegetarians should visit because the chef, (unsung hero in every good hotel), really knows how to cook and present vegetarian food - no bland risotto or pasta - real tasty meals. Although it's unfashionable to praise managers - the managers here should take credit for a very well managed hotel

We stayed at this hotel for a two night break - and it had my wife and I confused. It is an absolutely stunning building with a fairly ordinary corporate hotel inside.

The night before we arrived we got an unexpected phone call from the hotel. “you’re booked in to the hotel tomorrow, what time would you want dinner”. Wow, good service we thought. We said 7:30, and thought no more of it. We arrived at the hotel, and as we checked in we were told that they had a large party for dinner and so we couldn’t have dinner when we wanted it would have to be an hour later – so we had dinner in the on-site pub – which was good with good service. But why phone the night before and agree a time they could not deliver.

Breakfast the following day service was not quick, but not quite slow enough to complain – asking twice for more coffee – just a niggle.

We decided to have afternoon tea, in the lounge, and having ordered it the tea and coffee came quickly, but 20 minutes later the rest of the tea hadn’t arrived. So we asked at reception and five minutes later the full tea arrived with no apology, just the excuse that everything was freshly made – that would be the four finger sandwiches then.

The room was small and not very practical – and the decoration standard in the bathroom was not top notch, but it was comfortable and clean.

We got a corporate email from the hotel asking just how splendid a time we had there, and we told the same story - so far, no response from the hotel.
As the title says, good, but just not good enough.

We had a 2 night stay at linden hall, and it was just perfect, all the staff were very welcoming, and our room lovely, as was the view, the gardens are outstanding, because we had such lovely weather, it would have been nice to have had more seating outside, great value, we will certainly return.
