I took my mum here for her birthday in August. I had been meaning to take her for years as she was born at Brocket Hall. During the war it was used as a maternity home and my nan was sent here.

We dined at Auberge de Lac and spent the night at Melbourne Lodge. I cannot fault the restaurant, the food and wine was exceptional and the service was perfect. The hotel is at complete odds with the restaurant and the level of quality is not nearly half as high at Melbourne lodge. Here's a quick rundown of the hotel: Welcome:... More

1 LOCATION: The Melbourne lodge is located in the Brocket Hall estate. It is at the top of the hill and it has a great view over the estate. It's easy to find, but it's quite hard to check in if you aren't used to the process. 2 BUILDING: Very nice historical buidling. 3 WELCOME: I wouldn't put 5 stars... More

We also stayed at Melbourne Lodge on the GroupOn deal and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We requested an iron and ironing board on arrival and it was left in our room for us for when we arrived. The room was "old fashioned", but quaint and very clean. The grounds were amazing. It was lovely... More
