“Lovely country hotel- short walk to the sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

We stayed in a lovely deluxe room in the main house,very old fashioned with wooden doors,open fireplace,leaded windows and a huge bed.However,strangely the wardrobe was situated in the bathroom, but thankfully our clothes did not get damp.
Really enjoyed the spa facilities-the steam room,sauna, indoor pool and hot tub were fantastic just a shame there was not enough room around the pool for everyone to relax.
The service and food in the Tapestry Restaurant were first class but one word of warning the food is not plain and may not be to everyone's taste.
The grounds are extensive and very well kept with lots of lovely snowdrops under the trees and in the flowerbeds.

We just spent two nights at Bailiffscourt. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with smiles to the moment we left.
The service, rooms, food, wine were all 100%, I asked in advance for good service and that's what I got. It just could not have been better.
Sincere thanks to all the staff for making this special 60th birthday surprise for my wife and all my family a most memorable occasion. Even my daughter's little dog thought it was all brilliant.

The hotel is laid out in a series of converted (or new and made to look converted) farm-style outbuildings, which makes for a nice atmosphere of being in a littl village, rather than a big hotel. It makes for a sense of privacy in sizeable grounds and a very close beach, too. The hotel itself was on the old-fashioned end of luxury, but the rooms were very nice and spacious. We didn't have a working heating system, so had plug-in heaters instead, and I would have preferred carpet in January, but an unusually reliable wifi service and a phenomenal shower made up for that.

The restaurant was ok, with lovely mains and a good wine list. The desserts were a bit uninspiring, and overall we thought it was maybe £10/head (without wine) overpriced for what you got. The waiting staff weren't sufficiently well informed to put you at ease about asking for any little changes, having to go back to the kitchen to check if dessert could come without coulis, for example, so I felt very uncomfortable about doing so.

The spa was a bit disappointing. The pool was a good size, and lovely to have indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs. But the floor of the pool was dirty, with piles of sand in the corners, and a bit on the cold side. There was not enough room around the pool for the size of hotel, really, so we couldn't relax by it at all. The changing rooms were a mess, with towels, plastic cups and other rubbish all over the place when we returned in the early evening. They also started closing parts of the spa about an hour and a half before it was advertised to close, so we felt we had to leave.

The was generally great, though, with front of house and waiting staff being very friendly and welcoming.

Overall, we had a nice relaxing weekend, but it's not a pace I would especially recommend.

A short note to say a big thank you to everyone for helping to make our family celebration weekend perfect.

This is the second year that we have had a family celebration at Bailiffscourt in January. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home and you were able to accommodate all of our needs. With a group of 10 adults, 5 young children and 3 dogs you coped extremely well.

Please pass on our particular thanks to your breakfast team who made sure that the children had everything that they needed. Especially as the resident Peacock decided to make an appearance at the skylight. Friday night (10 Jan) was particularly busy in the restaurant; however, you still managed to serve up an excellent meal if somewhat slower than usual.

It was a special weekend for the family and one we will not forget. We look forward to returning at some time in the future

OK - this place is not cheap. I spent for 1 night and only 2 treatments, over £500. But both my girlfriend and I like nice wine and I am not going to spend over £200 on a room for a night and not splurge elsewhere.
But from arrival (2.30pm Saturday) until departure (11.30am Sunday), there was not a moment of anything other than absolute calm.
Even when it was raining, I happily sat in the outdoor hot tub which was unique and cool.

The food was magnificent and dinner was a lovely, lazy experience spread over a number of different rooms which helped keep the calm.

Service was attentive and professional throughout. Perfect in fact.

The only little thing I would change relate to the room. The Modern Room was large, comfortable and provided a great nights sleep. However, the little things (rubbish kettle, awful selection of hot drinks - does anyone with means still drink nescafe?!) could do with improvement and the decor in the room would be described, politely, as eclectic - meaning nothing seemed to go!
Wireless was strong in some areas and useless in others, which, given that there was no phone signal anywhere on the site, made things a bit complicated for anyone wanting to use their phone.

However, I really can't wait to return again. Wish I had stayed longer.

I love Christmas and won't go away, so as a sop to my Wife we booked up new years eve & day at Bailffscourt.
The atmosphere was very friendly and welcoming, even though they were 100% fully booked.
After settling into the room, we got dressed up (black tie was preffered but not compulsory, about 80% were in Black ties the rest were in suits) and went to the main reception for dinner.
We were welcomed with Champagne and then more then more while we chatted to the other guests and nibbled off the trays that were circulating, before we sat down to dinner.
Every dinning room and other rooms that could hold a table were used, not that it seemed to affect the service, which was prompt and hot and the tasty wine with each of the 5 courses was served in a full glass with refills if you managed to drink that one.
By the time desert arrived I had truly had enough wine and food, excellent though they were.
We moved toward the Spa, where the dancing was to be but were waylaid by other guests having fun and couldnt not join in for some games.
On reaching the Spa the music was mixed and not bad overall and just before midnight yet more champagne came around, great fun.
The next day was fantastic, a lazy breakfast a bit late, followed by a lovely lunch. We were glad of the extra night to recovery without having to drive or rush.
All in all a very good way to see the new year in, even if it wasn't cheap. there was no stinting on the food or drink or feeling that the staff were less than happy to be serving drinks at 2am to mildly drunk customers. In short, I would do it again.

Room Tip: Unless you have been before, go for a modern room. They are spacious and fully equipped. The older s...

Such a warm and friendly welcome. Graciously understated elegance. Superb food. Manager was very generous when we mentioned a disappointment in service on a previous visit. Thank you for a lovely evening.
