Good Hotel Guide Review

Parents ‘sleep like babies’ at this ‘fantastic’ family-friendly hotel, in a Jacobean manor house in ‘glorious’ countryside. ‘They’ve thought of absolutely everything to accommodate children and adults,’ says an ‘impressed’ guest in 2016. Part of Nigel Chapman’s Luxury Family Hotels group, the hotel has ‘a happy, relaxed atmosphere’; there’s ‘character in spades’, from the curio-filled public rooms to the ‘beautiful’ bedrooms and sprawling grounds – ‘just wild enough, in parts’ – that are ‘ripe for exploration’. Long afternoons may be spent in playrooms and pools, picking through a garden maze, collecting eggs from the hens and ducks, peering at tadpoles in the ornamental pond; ‘expert’ childminders ‘put parents’ minds at ease’. ‘We particularly liked the lovely extras: morning newsletters, hand-written notes to the children at breakfast, junior treatments in the spa.’ Young guests eat well in The Orangery; once the kids are in bed, sit in the candlelit restaurant and enjoy a menu inspired by the produce from their own kitchen garden, the whole soothed by ‘a contented murmur of adult conversation’. Breakfast brings pastries, fruit, thick yogurt from the buffet; cooked dishes are served at table. (ZH, and others)

Guest comments

'The building and the facilities for small children are great but meal service was slow and disordered. ' - CR - February, 2017
'We visited Woolley Grange last week with our three children and had a fantastic time; we couldn't have asked for more from a holiday. For the first time in a year (since having our twins) we felt we could truly relax! The facilities were fantastic, the staff were lovely and the Den was a hit with the kids so we even managed some time off every afternoon. ' - Zoe Hinton - April, 2015
'We were assigned the McIntosh room which was charming and spacious with great views on two sides and a very comfortable bed. On the 24th dinner (we both chose lamb rump) was delicious. Dinner on Tuesday 25th was less good. The starters and dessert were tasty but our main courses were well shy of GHG standards. The cooked breakfasts on both days were disappointing ' - R O - February, 2014
