Harbury Lane,Bishops Tachbrook, Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, United Kingdom
"Stayed here for my birthday. Shown to our room by very friendly lady, unfortunately the lift was out of order, wasn’t repaired in the 2 days we were there. Our room was pleasant but very hot, even with the window open. Very small but functional bathroom and small tv and fridge. I would compare it to a Premier Inn with smaller bathrooms. I had a spa treatment booked at 3pm, however there was a mix up and it was booked in at 4pm. So we were offered a hot drink in the cafe and free access to the spa, we couldn’t use this as I had hurt my wrist and couldn’t get it wet. We decided to celebrate my birthday with an alcoholic drink. I had a gin and tonic and my husband a small beer, both served in plastic tumblers for the princely sum of £16.80! For a 3/4* hotel in Leamington this is extortionate. Luckily we had some alcohol with us. My treatment was great, the only thing that let it down was at the end I was sat upright with a gift set plonked on my lap and given a sales pitch on the products. I hadn’t had time to come to. At other spas they do this at the end, to a lesser degree, outside of the room, giving you time to come to. We ate in the brasserie, which was very nice. £4 for a bread roll! Drinks again were very expensive and we were charged for mineral water we didn’t have. This was taken off the bill. Breakfast was nice, served in the main house. You will need your coat as there are 3 buildings, the spa building, Manor House and Knights suite accommodation block. You’ll have to walk in the open between the 3. The signage is terrible, we walked all the way around the spa building to find the entrance and even then there was no sign! All in all it was a nice night, but I would take your own alcohol, double check your spa booking and take your trainers to walk to the spa as you’ll walk further than you think. Would I stay again, probably not."
"We booked two nights with friends at the Mallory Court and what an experience it was. It was my Birthday whilst we were away and the Hotel treated us and our friends to an upgrade to a suite each. The building in general has a wonderful charm about it and the rooms did not fail to match up to that, although the only thing I would criticise about the Upton suite was the lighting which was a little dim. The rooms are spotlessly clean and well appointed. There is no real bar but you can sit in the lounge and enjoy a wonderful pre-dinner cocktail. The real star of this show though is the food, the 5 course evening tasting menu is to die for and as good as I have had in a number of Michelin star restaurants. The flavours created by the head chef and his team are simply wonderful. The beef and ox cheek main course on the first night was sumptuous. The staff are very polite and in these strange COVID times you felt safe at all times. Unfortunately we could not get into the spa during the time we had booked which was a shame. This Hotel is definitely worth a visit."
"I thought the grounds and outside of the hotel were beautiful as you drive in. We received a warm welcome and were taken to our room and shown around - all very professional and very good. I marked it down from a 5 to a 4 because our shower didn't work well (it made whale noises when you were trying to get it to the right temperature, and it seemed to do the opposite to what was labelled for hot/cold) We were in the Knight Suite, room 3. Our rate included breakfast, the breakfast was a bit underwhelming, but annoyingly, I found 3 separate pieces of egg shell in my scrambled egg.... you can get away with one, but not 3! (I spotted the third bit before chewing it luckily) We didn't get the time to use the spa unfortunately, but did have a look at the gym area which was excellent."
