“Great setting”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We were looking for somewhere to stay near Rugby on our journey down through the UK. Brownsover Hall popped up with a very good offer comparable to the various chain hotels nearby: it looked interesting, so we decided to give it a try.

The hotel is set in extensive and well-kept grounds and the building itself is very striking. We could see why it is evidently popular as a wedding venue, and enjoyed a pleasant evening stroll around the gardens.

The bedroom was fine: nothing special, but clean and comfortable. It would be great if the décor of the bedrooms better reflected the grandeur of the building as a whole, but at the price we paid that would be well beyond expectations. The breakfast rooms and conference rooms we saw were more in keeping with the ambience of the building.

The cold breakfast selection could have been better: the orange juice in particular was a bit watery. We didn't order anything cooked so can't comment on that.

The staff we met were friendly and helpful.

Thank you very much for your review and delighted to hear you enjoyed your short stay with us.
I take note of your comments regarding room decor and hope this issue of room refurbishment will be addressed shortly. Apologies if the orange juice was below the normal standards of quality on this occasion. We look forward to offer assistance and hospitality in the future when you are in the Rugby area.

We recently drove to London (from Northumberland) to drop our daughter off at her flat and didn't fancy driving all the way back on the same day so looked for somewhere about two hours out of London to stay over. This hotel looked good, situated as it is in its own grounds with extensive private parking and with its own restaurant and bar. The hotel seems primarily a wedding venue and was quiet when we arrived (Sunday) but that suited us. We ate dinner in the hotel and the food was excellent but a little pricey. The rooms were spotless, well furnished and the beds very comfortable.

If you are looking to venture out for food and or entertainment there is lots of the usual national restaurant chains within a couple of miles and also a Tesco for shopping and fuel.

We will definitely stay here again next time we drive down to London.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor (room 26 I think) overlooking the car park and it was quiet and spaciou...

This hotel was selected by the group organiser and it is close to Rugby, easy to find and very near to a couple of retail parks should you feel the need to go shopping.

The grounds are spectacular with beautiful lawns and trees and I walked my dog around them and into the Swift Valley Country Park through a gate over a bridge. It is the only location in the area where dogs may be let off lead.

(Please note dogs are not permitted inside the hotel itself).

The decor is very dramatic as befits a gothic establishment and one can see why it is a popular venue for weddings.

My room was at the end of a corridoor behind a door which separated rooms 1 and 2 from the rest of the corridoor.

It was spacious, well appointed with a very comfortable bed, free wifi, Freeview TV and a hospitatlity tray.

The bathroom was also sympathetically decorated the only disappointment was that it took an age for hot water to finally make an appearance and the very low pressure of the shower; toiletries were supplied.

It is the first time I have had apple in a Pimms (it is very sad that one of the quintessential British summer drinks is so poorly prepared in so many hostelries).

We had a meal in a private dining room and I could not fault the appearance, taste or service.

Breakfast was rather more pedestrian and the waiter somewhat less than smart. A reasonable selection of cereals and pastries was available, but the hot water, was not, and the poached eggs overdone.

All in all this is not bad value for money and a very picturesque location.

I only stayed one night but the room was good and the breakfast excellent. Unfortunately the WIFI access in my room and in the public areas of the hotel was such that I was unable to access the internet which was unfortunate due to time difference dealing with some family issues back in Australia. In this day and age it is a given that WIFI access is as expected as toilet paper. I am sure the problem can be fixed.

Room Tip: Check WIFI is working OK in all rooms before booking if this is a requirement when travelling.

Thank you for your review of Brownsover Hall. I am sorry the Wifi didn't work to your satisfaction.
We constantly monitor the system in order to provide the best possible coverage, although variations are always subject to a number of unknowns. For information in the future, we do provide hard wired options in the bedrooms in the main house as well as the conference rooms in the event of wifi down time. I hope this did not cause undue inconvenience.

We were married here in July, the venue is old and beautiful and the grounds stunning! The staff went out of their way to accommodate our every need, really couldn't fault them. The food was excellent, and overall great value for money. We had an amazing day, Hayley & Karen were brilliant and kept everything on the day and evening running smoothly.

We can't thank you enough for helping to make our day so magical!! ❤

This is the most stunning beautiful venue to marry the man of your dreams! From the moment we met Lesley (wedding co-coordinator) who is professional, efficient, knowledgeable yet so kind and caring we knew we would have the most perfect day. Nothing was too much trouble which made the planning enjoyable,a breeze and effortless. Paul and I married in the Library on May 30th, we had a small intimate reception followed by a "party" in the Sir Gilbert Scott room. Alice, looked after us on the day, (and what a fantastic job she did) but I would like to say that all the staff were helpful and they always had a smile on their face. The menu that we had chosen for our wedding breakfast was delightful (we had chosen following a menu tasting evening) and the evening buffet was well received, with many of our guests commenting how lovely it was. Claire (Black Orchid) created stunning bouquets and floral displays, Wendy and Roy ( Millhouse Events) made the reception room look magical, what a fantastic team!

The brochure promises to offer "something unique and special with a beautiful elegant setting
and that extra personal touch" we can honestly say that their promise was kept! Thank you for a truly memorable amazing day. Paul and Debbie Woods
