Lovely hotel in a country setting. Fantastic rooms and service from both the reception and dining colleagues. Have eaten in both the restaurant and bistro. The grounds are lovely to walk around and can see why so many people opted to get married here. Sadly the hotel has now closed.

I've been coming here over the past 18 months. The food was consistently good but unfortunately it's now shut as Tesco didn't want to extend the lease to DeVere/Principal Hotels any more. Sorry to see it go. Thanks to everyone I met there, the staff were certainly very good. I hope everyone finds another job.

My friends and I have been to this lovely venue for a few Xmas celebrations over the years and I have stayed here for a birthday treat some years ago. I was surprised and sad to hear that The Ponsbourne is imminently closing and the fate of this beautiful Manor House building is looking bleak. Not sure what De Vere's... More

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.

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
