This was our first visit to Othello' s Restaurant situated within the hotel to celebrate a family birthday - and it won't be the last. I could not fault the hospitality, food and service. Our meal was fantastic, including canapes before, and truffles with our coffee to finish. My husband commented that his fillet steak was the best he'd ever...

Obviously hand picked by the management for their efficiency , but also their willingness to help in a...

Astley Bank gives a feeling of a lovely country hotel without being in the country! Pleasant greeting on arrival, lovely areas for drinks prior to eating. The food was delicious . The restaurant was very busy, the waiters and waitresses attentive ,but we felt there could have been more supervision by a restaurant manager to ensure overall running of the...

I booked this hotel for my Mum's 80th birthday as she and her friends are local. We were given a lovely little dining room, really cosy and warm. Our waiting staff were first class friendly and professional we felt very welcome. Our food was excellent and so well presented. I had a vegan risotto which was soooo nice! They can...

We stayed at the Ashley Bank on a recommendation of a friend, we were not disappointed. The staff are friendly and polite, the rooms are well appointed and the bathroom quite large. The road to the hotel is shared and could be difficult to drive up in ice or snow, there is ample parking and some lovely grounds surrounding the...

Explanation- we are a very old building and it takes time for the heating to get through.......we were given a heater the day after we complained. Ran the shower for 15 mins to get hot water. Explanation - we are an...

Annual visit for a Christmas lunch - and not disappointed. Apparently a change of ownership, but food and service still very good. Very nice to be able to hang around and enjoy a few refreshments after lunch without being hurried.

90 people in total for a Christmas party. Service, excellent, food amazing. We had a great night. I must say I've been visiting Astley Bank for 20 years plus and I have NEVER been disappointed. I will certainly be back in 2017.

Met my friend here today for light lunch and a few drinks whilst we exchanged Christmas presents. I can't fault the attention of the staff but ambience was zilch. No background music and no other guests. I questioned black napkins, (at Christmas!), and was told they were to match gold and black crackers. My light meal was far smaller than...
