Just spent one night here - the price was good with breakfast included. Had a lovely room with plenty of space and it was a very cold night but the room was just right and the beds really comfy. All the staff were really helpful and friendly. The breakfast was really nice. We did not use the spa but it...

The hotel looks so appealing ( on paper) with the period main house and offer of sports facilities and spa treatments, but sadly the actual experience was very disappointing. The hotel room itself was modern, clean and very comfortable, but all other aspects were a let down. Swimming pool was highly chlorinated , the water was murky, and the showers...

We returned to Elmers court after 7 years and we were certainly not disappointed. Our room (18) was comfortable, clean and what we expected. The staff were friendly but at times seemed rushed off their feet. The food in the Steak Club was very nice but seemed a pricey. The furniture in the Steak club seemed a bit tired and...

This was a special treat for my parents following a rough few months. A full spa day with lunch and treatments arranged. Unfortunately on our arrival our bookings had been completely messed up, so much so that one of the hour long treatments had to be split just to make sure we all received something. The staff were all young...

OK... so this was meant to be a romantic escape (our first since having a baby)... we booked it based on the location, the fine dining and the wonderful old building... the bonus was that it had a nice spa that could give my wife a massage. We were in one of the suites (number 5) - that was furnished...

We got a very good deal to stay here via spa break website : approx £65 each for bed, breakfast and one 25 minute spa treatment. I would not call this hotel a true spa break - there is one swimming pool for children, one steam room and one sauna. It's not a relaxing spa relaxation but for the price...

We were staying here for a weekend. I had made dinner reservations online and received confirmation, however, when we arrived at the restaurant they said they had no record of our booking. The rooms are in a separate building from the main hotel building and are entered from patio style doors on the outside. The upper floors are accessed from...
