We stayed at The Dodington Lodge for one night midweek, when we came to Whitchurch for a golf event. When we arrived to check in, there was no-one at Reception, so we looked in the bar and found a very helpful, friendly young man who sorted everything out. Over the next few hours, we saw rather a lot of him;...

Hi Phil, Thank you for your lovely review, can I just say that I hope it was the floor that was creaky and not the bed; the bed's in room's 8 & 10 (the ones that can sleep 3) we had new in December last year so they should not be creaky. But the floors on the top floor are...

Our group stayed overnight on our charity cycle challenge. Accommodation was good and the young Manager very helpful. Food was average, but nothing special. It was a place to stay which was on our route rather than a place we'd chosen from reviews.

Glad to hear you had a pleasant stay and we hope your charity cycle ride went well, we do have lots of guests who do this and we are full of admiration for all your efforts, not sure I would want to drive the route. We are glad you found our team member helpful.

Stayed for one night. Hotel is in a good location close to the centre of town with loads of good friendly pubs. Room was warm, clean and comfortable. Staff are very friendly and breakfast was excellent. Hotel décor is a little dated but this adds to the character. Overall can't fault anything.

Good position in town with adequate parking, double aspect room 7 twin with veranda which might have been nice in the summer, clean and comfortable but very tired needing updating and quite expensive at £61.50 for a single considering. Good breakfast with awful coffee.

Hi Thank you for your review, not sure in what way you want us to do to update the room in the last 12 months it has been redecorated, had a new Carpet, and New Beds. I am sorry you did not like the coffee, if it was not to your taste we do several different sorts so if you...

Hi Sorry you had to wait but we are a 10 bedroom property as such we often only have one member of staff on duty, and they could be on the phone, serving on the Bar or setting up the function room, or even dealing with another customer. We do provide a fan heater in every room, but if you...

Last year I was looking for a hotel near the Cholmondeley Estate to take part in Tough Mudder 2014, this may not have been the closest or the cheapest but their customer service and people skills were second to none. For this reason, this year, I didn't bother looking for a closer or cheaper option to take part in Tough...

My partner and I stayed at the Dodington Lodge overnight in June, and we were very happy with our experience. We arrived at the hotel on Saturday afternoon and the surrounding area was extremely quiet and tranquil - if you're looking for somewhere to get away for peace and quiet, this is definitely a good choice.

Hi Thank you for your review and kind comments, we do review our rates every year , and do our best to keep them competitive, but a big element of our costs are wages and these do increase every year outside our control, not that we mind for the staff.

We booked this hotel as we were attending a wedding at a nearby Abbey.

Hi Its a shame that you felt unable to raise any of your issues with us while in the building when we could have put them right or at least tried to "as you didn't want to make a fuss". Surely if you are unhappy with something it is not to much to ask that you raise the problems with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Dodington Lodge is a friendly family run small hotel located on the outskirts of the market town of Whitchurch. The Hotel was originally built as a private residence and such is not a purpose built hotel. We have 10 very different shaped rooms; some are small like our compact double room 6, while others are extremely large like our deluxe room 1. Given the age of the building and its listed status many of the walls and ceilings and in some rooms the floors are a little uneven. All rooms are en-suite and include Refreshment facilities and Free view TV as standard, with free Wi-Fi available in the Public Areas and most bedrooms.The hotel is ideally placed for exploring the Shropshire, Cheshire and Staffordshire countryside. Manchester Airport is our nearest at 1 Hour away. The Roman towns of Chester and Shrewsbury (Wroxoter) are only a day’s march away (or about 30 minutes drive). If you like walking The Sandstone Trail begins (or ends) in the Whitchurch Jubilee Park, which is located a few minutes’ walk away from the hotel. ... more   less
