Good Hotel Guide Review

‘There’s lots of room to play and run around’ at this ‘pretty, rambling manor house’ in ‘fantastic grounds’ on the edge of the Cotswolds. Part of Nigel Chapman’s Luxury Family Hotels group, the hotel is run with ‘care and empathy, and scores of considerate touches that make it perfect for parents of young children’, say trusted Guide correspondents this year. In the ‘cosy sitting rooms’ in the Jacobean mansion, there are wood fires, squashy sofas, a hidden glockenspiel, books, magazines and Rex, the resident King Charles spaniel. The staff are ‘laid-back and relaxed’, the children, ‘thrilled’. Individually styled bedrooms come in scores of different configurations. ‘Ours, in the old laundry, was ideal for our family, with a large bed downstairs and two camp beds in the living room upstairs.’ Flexible meal options include children’s high teas, early family suppers, and grown-up candlelit dinners. ‘The food was good – simple and hearty – but the service, though friendly, could have been sharper (long waits).’ Read the morning newsletter over an ‘excellent breakfast’ to discover the adventures dreamed up for the day ahead.

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
