From arrival until we left the staff did their utmost to make our short break memorable. Set in stunning grounds this impressive building is a photographer’s paradise. the food both at dinner and for breakfast was first class and beautifully presented. We can recommend this hotel to others knowing you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front have great views.

A lovely stay and food absolutely amazing, for breakfast and evening meals. Amazing value too, including complimentary Bellini and glasses of wine.
Only negative would be that although there was an open fire in the entrance area, in the lounge, where people relax after their meals, there was no welcoming fire on both of the nights. This lounge area, also felt quite 'flat' , in respect of not much of an atmosphere of comfy, cosy setting to relax with more drinks. On the first night it felt quite cold and even in the bar area, we sat with our coats on. Because of this our second night we spent in Chipping Campden in the Noel Arms for food beside their blazing fire in their bar area.
If you created more of an atmosphere (the bar area in the corner of the lounge looked odd and obviously used when large parties are present.
Our room was fantastic however, along with the bathroom, exceptional cleanliness.
We would have loved to have had paid for the second evening's meal (first night was complimentary) due to the amazing food the previous night, but due to not wanting to spend time in the lounge afterwards, we decided on dining elsewhere unfortunately.
In these winter months, and with a plethora of trees in the grounds and subsequent logs mounted up outside the hotel, it would have been so lovely (and warming) to have had the fire lit in the lounge.

When we arrived we were impressed with the drive up to Dumbleton Hall and the fact there were sheep in the fields. We were warmly welcomed and advised of what we could expect over the next two days during the festivities.

Our rooms were at the top of the house on the 2nd floor and a bit of a walk, but luckily they had a lift, thought we only used it for taking our luggage up and down.

Our room was very pleasant and our bathroom was quite huge. Unfortunately the room was not very warm and despite our best endeavours we couldn’t get the heating to work. This resulted in a call to reception who sent someone up immediately. It wasn’t to fix the heating but to supply a separate heater.

The other downside was that when my husband had a shower and there was no hot water at all!! This was probably due to it being New Year’s Eve and everyone wanting to be arriving at the party at the same time.

Prior to the evening dinner dance we had a cream tea which was delightful and included in the deal.

Dumbleton Hall is a very impressive hotel with lots of character. The staff were very good and very friendly even though the majority seemed quite young.

Dinner at New Year’s Eve was very good with a choice for starters, main and desserts. Wine was not included but a good choice was offered for purchasing.

At approximately 10.00pm there was a live band that played till the New Year it was a pity that there was not background music playing during the meal. Disco music was played till 1.00am where just before we retired for the night.

Breakfast was again very nice plenty of options including a full English and set up up nicely for our trip to Cheltenham races.

After a great day out we returned to Dumbleton Hall for a relaxing drink in the lounge. There are lots of other rooms that Dumbleton have and we only saw some of them.

The grounds also.ooked amazing and we would have loved to walk some of them but ran out of time, light and sunshine.

We again had a lovely meal on New Year’s Day and finished off with coffee and drinks in the lounge.

All the time the staff were really friendly and attentive and really wanted to help.

Check out was very efficient with itemised bill.

It was sad to leave and we may be back next year.

From the moment you drive through the gates you know it's going to be an amazing place. Stunning scenery, beautiful building and very tasty food.
On entering this hotel we was greeted by a friendly receptionist who ensured our table reservation was booked. We then walked up the stairs and took in the sheer beauty of the reception area with it's comfy seats and huge impressive fireplace.
We reached our room which was warm and cosy. The decor suited the hotel and it was truly like stepping back in time.
We then went down to the library bar for a drink and was surprised that the cost of our drinks wasn't any different to Bristol.
They had a pianist playing in part of the lounge which was lovely.
In the evening we ate in the Cedar restaurant. We had prawn cocktail starters, my partner had pork mains (with crackling) and I had the lamb (all cooked beautifully). We didn't have to wait long for our food to come out.
We then retired to our room and slept peacefully. Our only complaint is being woken up at 7am by another guests dog barking (dog friendly hotel)....but this isn't the hotels fault.
We then went for breakfast which had an amazing choice....pastries, fruit, yoghurt, cereal, juices, tea, coffee, crumpets, toast and of course a full English breakfast as well other choices.
After breakfast we went for a walk around the grounds for which we got to admire the stunning scenery (breathtaking....even more so as we had snow during the night).
We will be returning to this hotel as we can't fault it in way.
