Visited for a friends 21st birthday who had booked the Trussell Suite. Dropped off all decorations the day before as the staff decorate the room - arrived at 12:30 on the day of the party to find this had been done perfectly! Delicious Sunday lunch menu, which was perfectly presented and promptly served. Friendly and efficient staff and beautiful surroundings. Would highly recommend.

We had our Ruby Anniversary lunch in the Colin Lewis Suite on Sunday. I can't praise everything about the whole experience too highly. From Rachel our Co-ordinator to all of the staff who waited on us. All of our guests were so impressed with the venue, the layout of the room (large oval table) and the food. It was brilliant from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they were very efficient but unobtrusive. Because the weather was good it was lovely to finish the afternoon with coffee by the lake. We can't wait to return for another meal to enjoy all the facilities again.

Beautiful setting in the Orangery for afternoon tea. The staff were very good, they gave us 8 different teas to smell before we made our choice. The egg timer i a great idea so that you get the perfect cup of tea. the cakes and sandwiches were yummy in fact too much for us and they kindly wrapped the ones left for us to take home. Well done!!

What a lovely hotel, I found it in the internet and booked last minute . Our room was functional and everything worked as it should it was quiet and comfortable

We ate in the Orangery on both nights and the food was very good , put my jacket on for the first night as the website says no jeans or trainers so surprised to see quite a few in very casual attire .

The staff were very professional and attentive , on the second night we had a drink in the garden by the water which was lovely and then moved back to the restaurant to try the tasting menu which was amazing, best pudding I have ever had

Not a cheap weekend at £750 for two nights including drinks dinner and bed and breakfast in a deluxe double but felt good value as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily return or recommend

We stayed for only one night after my son and fiance announced this was where they were to hold their wedding. Well , Mum had to check it out. We even got a peek of the bridal suite which is amazing.
The hotel is lovely and very comfortable. The restaurant is beautiful and the food fine dining standard. We booked a Sunday night with breakfast ( please don't miss the breakfast) as this was a very reasonable price compared to the Friday and Saturday night.
My son and his fiance joined us for a meal on the Sunday evening and we got the best table in the house. The sun was setting and the ambience and views were fabulous.
The breakfast was very nice, the whole atmosphere is very relaxing and the staff excellent.
I am really looking forward to the wedding as the professionalism showed was of a very high standard.

Room Tip: They are all lovely

Discovered The Moat House on the internet whilst seeking a place for an overnight stay on travelling home to Surrey from Scotland. The room was beautifully appointed, spacious and with a good bathroom. We ate in the restaurant and what a restaurant. The staff were very professional, efficient and friendly. The food was just first class, from the presentation to the taste. Breakfast the next morning was equally superb.
It`s a shame that this place is 2 1/2 hours fast drive away or else we would eat there every week.
A totally fabulous place and a most wonderful experience added to by quality staff in every department.
