I went to the Lord Haldon with fairly low expectations. Not because of the hotel itself but best westerns inconsistent standards. However, the standards of this hotel were fantastic. I arrived for a family birthday meal where I was met with a huge genuine smile by Lauren and Zoe. We had a fantastic meal cooked by chef Mel, who catered...

We found this location by chance at the last minute. What a wonderful surprise. Since we had only one night here and we were quite tired from a very long drive, we only needed a clean, comfy place to rest. It was well above our expectations. The room was very clean, the bed was very large and so comfy that...

What do I love about this hotel.....the location for a start of, in the middle of nowhere, lovely if you want to get away from it all. The staff, they really cant do enough to help you and they don`t look down your nose at you. The food...really great "normal" food, reasonably priced. Drinks, also reasonably priced for a hotel....

Came with friends, it's certainly off the beaten track but satnav will get you there Friendly welcome, rooms are reasonably well appointed for the money but dated in some areas - generally the waiting staff seemed a little reserved and not very engaged. The food was quite pricey for what it was Would I come again / recommend, yes but...

Reception was very efficient but friendly. We went up to our room which was modern with exposed brick and lovely comfy bed, very impressed with the room and the bathroom was a...

As you go down the driveway the view is fantastic, and the hotel just looks perfect. Our standard room had decent view (I guess most do) and was small but clean. In fact the whole place was well cared for, especially the gardens ( they do lots of weddings here, and you should expect to hear the music. Only reason...

We were recommended this venue for our wedding which was the best choice out of a lot of venues we had visited, we really wished we had seen it first as the venue was spot on. From begining to end we were treated like royalty as we were the only people who were there. I stayed there with some of...

We live in town, and wanted to be away in the country. That's what this hotel provides you. The setting has an interesting historical background, a lot to find out and understand. Most of all it is relaxed, yet professional. We were charmed by a Yorkshire girl Sam. Who brought back memories of a garçon in Paris, serving us in...
