“Weekend Break”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Oh dear...............mmmm, We stayed for a weekend break, the missus booked it not knowing I had stayed at Ashorne extensively as a BSC,Corus and TATA employee, so not too disappoint her I said we'd give it a go.
The mistake we made, was a wedding reception was at the hotel on the same day. We had limited access to areas of the main house and to be told by the staff, we could not eat in the restaurant . We found a fantastic eatery in Leamington Spa (Restaurant 21)
On returning to the hotel we proceeded to have a drink in the bar to be told ,very rudely by a member of the wedding party to leave ASAP??? the hotel reception had already said we could use the bar etc.
Due to the wedding party occupying all the Main House bedrooms our accommodation was in a concrete bunker type building . However the room was clean decorated and furnished to a reasonable standard.

The main house and Quad building ( old stable block ) is fantastic set in a beautiful part of the Warwickshire countryside. The 1970's concrete extensions let the place down . Maybe get rid of the conference rooms in the main house and offices to create more bedrooms??

Its a shame , the place in its current state of management will never make it as a hotel, that's not taking anything away from the duty manager as she was lovely ,polite and helpful.


Disappointed to be honest - Stick to training, conferences and the weddings.

We held our wedding at Ashorne Hill at Easter and were provided with the most wonderful wedding. Renata and her team were exceptional and we could not have asked for anything more. We were so lucky to have a warm and sunny day so we could make good use of the all of the grounds as well. The food was sensational with many of our guests telling us uit had been the best wedding food they had ever tasted. The Chef was extremly accomodating and provided us with a menu of our own choosing! It was delicious! The rooms were fabulous - plenty of space for everyone to stay and again our guests all told us how good the rooms were. Thank you Ashorne Hill and to Renata in particular for making our day so special, being so flexible to allow us to have our own touches and for providing a venue that was just perfect for our needs! Katie & James Stein x

Room Tip: All of the rooms are of a very high quality!

We hunted for a long time to find our perfect wedding venue and we found it at Ashorne Hill (it ticked all our boxes!). Our whole experience from the very first wedding fayre we attended to the actual wedding day itself was fantastic. The staff were all wonderful and so professional throughtout the planning process. The views are stunning and there are superb wedding photo opportunities inside and outside. the big plus with this venue is there is plenty of space indoors so if the weather isn't good for your occasion it wont matter. There is plenty of parking and sport facilities. We highly recommend this venue for any occasion.

Room Tip: We stayed in the old part of the venue which was really special. There are also modern rooms in the...

I visited Ashorne Hill for a weekend event recently. I have to say the main house and grounds are lovely, really beautiful and I imagine they would be spectacular in summer. Newer wing is practical for conferences and training. We were at a 1920's murder mystery and the venue suited this perfectly. Food and service were faultless. Bedrooms are smart and clean although most are located out of the main house so a short walk to restaurant and main house facilities.

We had a excellent stay in the beautiful surroundings of a classic English countryside. The staff was very service minded, and everything worked as planned. This is important when you are on a business trip.We would like to use this Hotel again!

Room Tip: We choose single rooms with a excellent view over the countryside.

Me and my partner had a fantastic stay at Ashorne Hill combined with a fabulous dinner and Murder Mystery themed evening. The quality of the bedroom and facilities was great, we loved the old part of the building and the beautiful grounds. Ashorne Hill also offers great conference and training facilities and perfect environment for education and meeting.
On the night we enjoyed an excellent gourmet meal and very amusing Murder Mystery entertainment. We would definitely go back for a weekend and recommend the property for meetings and trainings.

After being invited to attend a Murder Mystery Dinner at Ashorne Hill myself & my partner arrived a little unsure what to expect. The evening was fantastic! The cast did a fantastic job entertaining the group (around 100) keeping us on our toes giving away little clues as to who committed the murder! The cast mingled continuiously throughout the 3 course meal which lead to each table finally having to decide on the culprit. Needless to say our table didnt win which didnt detract from a fantastic evening. The food at Ashorne Hill was amazing, the pink duck I would highly recommend! The staff, service and facilities at the venue were really of a good level. I would certainly recommend for business and leisure. I'm looking forward to when they take more weekend break business as it is perfectly placed near many attractions around the midlands area.

Room Tip: We stayed in the bridle suite - amazing four poster bed and large room.

Thank you so much Barbara for such lovely feedback! The Murder Mystery Event was such a huge success, so much so that we will be running a similar event later in the year, along with other Leisure Break events such as the Duelling Piano's, Colour Me Beautiful and Chocoholic Weekends...keep an eye on our website for more details on this!
