Great location

Posted 08-Sep-2014
Wonderful looking hotel in lovely grounds . Very close to Stratford on Avon . Very good spa facilities. Food was good ( although the orange juice for breakfast tasted very funny ! ) the bedroom itself was tidy and comfortable, nothing particularly attractive but very adequate . The "common" rooms downstairs seemed a little tired but again were generally comfortable and clean. Overall , a very adequate stopover hotel for anyone wanting to visit Stratford. Staff could do with being a bit more cheerful and cost is quite expensive for the general standards.

Wonderful wedding anniversary spa break

Posted 07-Sep-2014
Pros: The location, the age of the building, the staff, the room, the food was amazing, the spa facilities.
Cons: The bed linen was stained but we did not say anything because everything else was just perfect.
Location: Stratford-upon-Avon was only three miles away, with Warwick only nine miles away. Leamington Spa is also only a few miles further.
Billesley Manor Hotel was a wonderful find, and we would recommend it to anyone. It was our first wedding anniversary and the staff all congratulated us, no matter where we went - the bar, the restaurant, the spa. It was customer service beyond that which we've had before. The Hotel is full of charm and the gardens are lovely to walk around to burn off the fabulous breakfast! The room upgrade is worth the money, for more original features, a 4 poster bed and wonderful views.

Hard to fault

Posted 08-Aug-2014
Pros: The annexe room was very comfortable. The swimming pool was a big bonus. The gardens, especially the yew hedges with topiary, were delightful.
Location: Close to several National Trust properties and the tourists spots of Stratford.
A lovely country hotel not far out of Stratford-on-Avon, peaceful with good amenities.

Lovely Setting

Posted 21-Jul-2014
Pros: The setting was lovely.
Room had a scalding shower impossible to set poperly. Sewage smell hovered around the Barn where we were.The main hotel was charming. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. Service during day at the bar was not good.

Lovely hotel

Excellent stay - main house lovely. Rooms in adjoining buildings a bit tired. If you want to eat in their restaurant pre-booking is advised

Great Hotel and location

Posted 07-Feb-2014 on Hotels.com
Lovely hotel, good breakfast, helpful staff. Overall this is a good quality hotel- very british feel to it and well worth 4 star. Only disappointment was the room was small and quite dingy.

Great hotel but food and drink expensive

Posted 26-Jan-2014 on Hotels.com
Ive stayed here many times and although thr quality if the accommidation is first rate, the bar and restaurant costs are high(£40+ for 3 course set menu and £6.50+ for a large red wine). Besudes this will always stay here if possible, especially when entertaining clients.

Country Manor Hotel

Posted 27-Nov-2013
Pros: Friendly staff. Good food. Beautiful location.
Cons: Rooms need updating and modernising. Slightly higher cleaning standards wouldn't go a miss either.
Hotel has received good reviews and to a certain extent I can see why, the food was good and the staff very friendly (at front desk at least). For me the room was very basic, whilst not dirty in places where it mattered (bed and bathroom) there were cobwebs on the ceiling and dust on the soft furnishings. The fan in the bathroom was very noisy (room 40) and despite being 2 floors up the music from wedding below could be heard word for word until it stopped at midnight. All in all not a bad hotel, but not what I would have come to expect from a 4 star hotel.

Lovely old building but a bit of a warren

Posted 26-Oct-2013
Pros: The building itself and the room was large and comfortable
Cons: As the dinner was so expensive we ate out both evenings. The staff, at times, seemed quite unfriendly and tense.
Location: Lovely grounds and surrounding scenery. We went to the Royal Shakespeare theatre and visited Warwick Castle. there are also various NT places nearby
I got the feeling that the staff did not really want to communicate with their guests on the whole. There was only a printed A4 sheet given at the time of arrival with the bare minimum of information regarding the facilities. We were not the only guests to be searching out breakfast on our second morning! Our room was spacious and the bed comfortable but the kettle had to be carried across to the other side of the room to heat as the lead wouldn't reach the socket (low down to the skirting board), behind the chest of drawers on which the courtesy tray was sitting . There was a double socket at one side of the bed which had to be used for the kettle and the hairdryer but unfortunately, this meant you couldn't see in the mirror to dry your hair as the lead wouldn't reach. Not what I would expect of a 4 star hotel especially when the cost of the food was taken into consideration - £39.95 for the 3 course table d'hote menu which we felt was way over-priced, as were the 'wheel of sausages' from the bar menu. At £14.95 I would have expected some really special sausages, not the three mediocre ones which were sitting on the mashed potato! Shame because the swimming pool was great but I couldn't recommend the hotel on the strength of the pool alone.
