We purchased a 2 night TravelZoo voucher for the Northcote - which included a 6-course Gourmet Dinner with wines on the first night. Not really our cup of tea to be honest, but the food was nice enough - although be warned, there's no choice unless you ask. Breakfast was excellent. We stayed in "Wisteria", which was a stone's throw... More

Howard E, Guest Relations at Northcote Manor Country House Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for offering us valuable feedback. For clarity, our 6-course gourmet menu served with matching wines is a set menu dining experience. In this respect, it is different and separate from our main restaurant menu. That said, we are flexible to accommodate preference or special dietary requirements and are happy to replace or substitute dishes where this is possible.... More

On the plus side, it is a lovely location and very peaceful. The staff, mainly young, were very personable and helpful. The food was good, the fish dishes particularly so, and very nicely presented. The wine list started at around £30 so not inexpensive. Although the public areas are well appointed, our room in the main house was tired and... More

We always listen carefully and note all points for sharing with our team. It’s great to understand that you enjoyed your food and overall stay at Northcote Manor. We did encounter a fault with our water pump during your stay, which affected water pressure to some rooms and resulted in a small water leakage. In turn, this triggered an alarm.... More

Possibly our sixth stay here now and we keep returning each autumn as their special tasting menu inclusive stays are so delightful and such good value for money.

We had another lovely stay here with friends. This time we had a suite in the stable block, which was lovely. It was well appointed, beautifully furnished with a most comfortable bed and a lovely view. We had the six course tasting menu with accompanying wines, which was very good. The room is very atmospheric. However, the meal was very... More

We stayed last night on a travel zoo offer, the whole experience was outstanding. Beautiful setting and lovely room. Staff were courteous and friendly and provided great service from beginning to end and every course of the 6 course meal was delicious and presented beautifully. Great value and thank you to all staff

We had one night at Northcote Manor as a quick escape. This is a place to go for a relaxing break, if you are looking for top quality luxury rooms, design and service this is not the place. It has the feeling of faded grandeur but at that level it does a very good job - relaxing and unfussy. The... More
