Sadly the owner Tesco are closing this beautiful venue on December 22nd this year.

I stayed here a couple of times with work and found it well located for a number of business meetings that I had in the area. I found the staff on reception were welcoming and helpful the only negative was the gentleman at breakfast that would not leave people alone pestering with small talk and pressure for positive feedback on...

Stayed once again at the Ponsbourne Park Hotel whilst visiting relatives in the area. The room, was very good with a plentiful supplies of tea, coffee, milk etc. Breakfast at the Bistro was more than enough with a splendid range of food on offer, cold meats, fruit, cerials, yoghurt, pastries, and of course the traditional cooked food.

What a disaster!! Waitresses rude and lazy. Quality and quantity of the food very poor. My daughter and I had the gravalax and there was hardly any on the plate just 3 tiny bits. The Bistro was empty and we had to call the waitresses over to place our orders and they just stood at the bar chatting. We ordered... More

My husband and I went to Ponsbourne Park earlier this year on a Groupon Vocher and loved it so much I took my husband again for his Birthday without a voucher. We were given the same room we loved on our last visit which made it perfect. Ponsbourne Park is the perfect base for visiting National Trust Properties which we... More

My wife and I had been thinking of trying Ponsbourne Park for ages. Yesterday we finally went for Sunday lunch. As my wife is disabled I stopped the car near the Bistro entrance and had a quick look at the menu before looking for more suitable parking. There was no parking nearby so we ended up at the far end... More

Wedding of daughter identified online and booked immediately following a visit to meet the team. Great setting when driving up to the hotel. Only 50 bedrooms so as the location is some way from anywhere it's take over the establishment which makes for a neat feel to the occasion. Grounds work well for the photographs, particularly the mock portico. Comfortable... More

Looks alright from the outside but inside, it is sloppy both in service and configuration. It belongs to a retail chain and also used for educational purposes. Plenty of golfcourses nearby.

We booked Sunday lunch for 25 of us to celebrate my mum's 70th birthday. We could not fault a single thing. To make all the arrangements we dealt with Jenny, the events organiser, she was so professional, friendly and accommodating, nothing was to much trouble. We felt completely confident with Jenny to ensure everything went smoothly. On the day it... More
