We had our golden wedding celebration lunch on Sunday 12th February . Everything was first class and we could not have asked for more. The room, the food and in particular the staff were excellent. Highly recommended.

Fabulous food. Efficient friendly service. Good wine choice. But the dining room felt too spacious and lacked ambience. It was quite busy but not full. We were a bit chilly. I appreciate it's an old building with draughty areas but I think a better atmosphere could be created,especially for couples,using better decor and lighting and maybe screens to make smaller...

We stayed in Room 3 at the front of the Hotel which was meant to be a superior room. The curtain lining was ripped and clearly in need of replacing. The lining came at least 1 foot below the bottom of the curtain material. The bed was a small double and the mattress was on the soft side. The whole...

We booked the Dovecliff Hall as a classic 'country house hotel weekend break'. It met our expectations to a degree as it was comfortable, clean and the staff were very friendly. However, it seemed to be strangely lacking in character and did not make the most of the building or the location. The main public rooms are a bit anaemic...

I booked this room for 2 nights for my husband's birthday. The hotel looked stunning and was just as good as the pictures. The staff were very friendly and obliging. I had mentioned it was my husband's birthday prior to our visit and a bottle of prosecco was waiting in our room on our arrival. The room was very spacious...

Stopped here for an overnight as was attending a meetung at Burton Albions Pirelli Stadium ground which was a mere 9 mins away. A comfortable stay in spacious ground floor twin room. There is a feeling of an aged establishment perhaps past its best. I had to go out to go back in to get to my room but there...

We stayed here for a Xmas get together for 12 school friends. They set up the library for a lovely 3 course private dinner and we had table service for drinks until really late. From the moment we got there to when we left, it was very welcoming and staff lovely. The food was really nice and well presented. It...

My daughter chose this for her wedding ceremony and celebrations. Many of the guests enjoyed staying at the Hall - my wife and I having the Lady Burton suite. The location, the Hall, the atmosphere and the staff were all terrific. The wedding breakfast was one of the best I've ever had! All in all a wonderful couple of days....
