My friends and I spent a long weekend at Goldstone Hall and we all found it delightful and welcoming. The highlights were the astonishingly high quality of the food and the beautiful herbaceous borders, cutting garden, herb walk and kitchen garden. At a time when other gardens are languishing due to a long drought, these gardens were interesting at every turn, brimming with butterflies and bees. Dinner was that rare thing: the food looked stunning and tasted even better. Elegant main course dishes were accompanied with fresh green vegetables from the gardens. This is possibly the best hotel food I've ever tasted in the UK. The chef is new and I hope he continues to delight guests with his creations. Front of house service was perfect too: never intrusive and always impeccable. Ooh and the gin menu was extensive.

Room Tip: Upper floor was easier to reach and had the best views as well as being more elegantly furnished.

We decided to have a special afternoon treat for 2 separate birthdays. Having visited before for lunch and a dinner and an overnight stay over the last few years, we were very pleased to find that the high standards of Goldstone Hall were still being maintained. We were served a beautiful afternoon tea by two delightful young ladies with even a birthday card from the management. We were on the terrace under a gazebo, just brilliant. The gardens of course were spectacular as usual, worth a visit just to see the gardens. p.s. Don't eat a lot before afternoon tea !!!

Room Tip: They all appear to be very good !

A gem of a find down country lanes from the A41 near the Tern Hill roundabout. south of Whitchurch. Well signed and good directions from their web site The Goldstone Hall Hotel brown signs get you to the front drive and into the spacious hotel quickly. Friendly caring staff direct you to your table inside or out and with the present fantastic weather are easily able to transfer your coffee arrival table into you luncheon space with practiced skills.
Lunch was good, well presented and tasty from a compact menu . Service pleasing and not overpowering with our satisfaction concerns .
The gardens are wonderful and provide a serious final course to the menu. A walk through the lawned area showed off the vast ranges of plants and flowering shrubs which have been developed over the years successfully by the hard working gardening staff and hotel owners . A vast kitchen netted garden provides suitable stock for the daily meal service. Goldstone Hall manages its attributes fully and well and am sure we will be returning after our splendid first visit

We had to head down to London on a last minute trip and decide to stop off halfway. I wish we’d stayed longer. We arrived late at night and the staff couldn’t have been kinder. There had been a dinner on and it as clear that everyone wanted home but the willingness and welcoming smiles we got when we asked for toast and tea quite staggered us. The room itself exceeded all expectations. Breakfast was memorable. I take my black pudding seriously and if I’m candid it’s more often than not a let down. This one was a blinder. A showstoppingly good one. The proprietor is an extremely jovial sort and youn can tell he takes his hostelry seriously. Full marks here.
We’ll be going back. I
