We visited Bailiffscourt Hotel for a wedding. This was our first experience of the hotel, but hopefully not our last.

The hotel itself is in several parts, there is the older mansion and then the newer rooms around the grounds, so if you are staying in one of the contemporary rooms, there is a short walk to the main body of the hotel and the dining room.

The grounds however are so beautiful that a stroll amongst the buildings is a must.

I would say that the hotel is expensive, but for the kind of service we received and for the beautiful location I would say that it is well worth the money.

The room we had was Strakes and was extremely quiet with only 3 other rooms in that area. Their was ample tea, coffee and handmade biscuits provided, lovely fluffy towels and robes, delightful smelling toiletries, 2 sinks, and a shower the size of my whole bathroom at home!

The staff were also more than happy to bring fresh milk, and drinks for the little boy who was staying as part of our party.

Guaranteed we were at a wedding so the food was not from the menu, however, the evening meal on the whole was extremely good - I wouldn't however recommend the leek and potato soup - I understand that the potatoes are required to be al dente, but rock hard diced potato at the bottom of the bowl was not really acceptable, and most people on our table left the soup. It was mentioned to the waiter, so hopefully this was fed back to the kitchen. The breakfast however was outstanding. All hot food was cooked to order and you could have anything from the menu. The cereals, croissants, bread and jams were all in plentiful supply, and the porridge was the best I have ever had anywhere.

We didn't have time to spend in the spa, but we did pop in for a look around to see what we were missing, causing us great disappointment that we couldn't spend the afternoon there - a lovely tranquil setting with an indoor and heated outdoor pool, a perfect place to while away an afternoon.

The hotel boasts a beach just a five minute stroll away "perfect for picnics" it is however extremely stony so don't go hoping for golden sand to build castles upon. The walk is very short around the back of the hotel grounds. Sadly the pathway down to the beach isn't maintained very well and is the scene of old drinks cans, bottles, and general litter. I imagine that it is a public right of way not owned by the hotel, but it would be nice if they could work with the local council to keep the area clean of litter, as the beach, pebbles or not, is an asset to the hotel.

All in all we had a fabulous time at this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

The overall experience was almost 5 star when my wife and I recently had a 2 night stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff were very efficient and friendly, the food was excellent for both dinner and breakfast and the accommodation most comfortable. As all other reviewers have stated the actual hotel buildings are pretty unique, which added to the pleasure of our stay, and the location ideal for seaside walks or visiting nearby towns. Our only gripe is that the Spa centre is rather cramped with a small pool and changing rooms that are inadequate.

Room Tip: All rooms are different so check before booking but "Alwynne" is recommended

Location is everything for this hotel. Set in a daffodil lined driveway it looks fantastic. Our room was nicely furnished with tea and coffee making facilities. Fresh milk was even brought to our room when required. With top service at all times and underground secreted tunnels connecting some of the buildings this place is certainly different. However, this all costs and our 2 night stay came to £745 including evening meals bed and breakfast. This did not include any spa treatments. Great place to stay if you want something different, but a little too expensive.

The location of the place was ideal. We enjoyed the food, walking and the spa. Our room was in the main building it was warm (perhaps a bit to warm!). The bathroom was excellent. The bath being deep and large and a great walk in shower.

Lovely location, near the beach, places to walk and amazing collection of historic buildings, apparently brought onto the Estate by the Guinness family. There is an excellent Spa which we didn't use but, some of the party did.The main building is a really beautiful medieval manor, with lots of small rooms, places to hide and read or take coffee. We had a family event and there is a large room that is used for this. The food was excellent, albeit the service was a little slow but very well meaning. The accommodation is excellent. We were out in one of the new buildings. The bed was comfy, bathroom excellent but thankfully we didn't need the air conditioner as it was very noisy.Loved the screens which slide across the windows in lieu of curtains.A great time was had by all!

Room Tip: Depends on whether you want quaint or modern!
