What a great stay we had at The Great Fosters. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were treated so well by the staff and there's not a bad thing I can say about our stay. Even though we had booked through a TravelZoo offer at no point were we treated any differently to other patrons.
We upgraded to a historic room which is difficult to compare against a regular room as we didn't see one of those. I was happy with the decision though. We were in the Duke of Wellington suite, where the wallpapering is mind blowing. The bed was comfortable, the shower was powerful and hot, and the set-up of the suite (comprising a separate lounge and bedroom) made you feel you were staying in someone's house rather than a hotel (which I prefer). We also had a beautiful view over the garden and moat.
The food in the restaurant was of a very high standard, and the service was again attentive and friendly throughout our meal. Good wine selection with decent quality bottles available from £30 upwards. Breakfast in the morning was top notch too.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Probably built as a Royal Hunting lodge and very much a stately home since the 16th century, Great Fosters is now a prestigious hotel, awarded 4 red stars by the AA. Set amongst 50 acres of gardens and parkland, the hotel is a Grade One listed building blessed with the grandeur of 16th century England and luxurious modern facilities. Its past is evident in the mullioned windows, tall chimneys, fireplaces and brick finials, while the Saxon moat, crossed by a Japanese bridge, surrounds three sides of the formal garden. All the suites and bedrooms are individually decorated. The bedrooms in the Main House are adorned with tapestries and antiques, whilst the bedrooms in The Cloisters are more contemporary in style. The refurbished Coach House offers luxurious accommodation with the latest plasma screens, i-pod docking stations and fabulous bathrooms. The hotel has two restaurants - The Estate Grill has been awarded two rosettes by the AA and serves a simple and seasonal menu with many of the dishes using produce grown on the estate and cooked on a Josper grill. The Tudor Room was awarded a Michelin star and three rosettes by the AA in October 2016 and is an intimate sophisticated restaurant open for lunch on a Thursday & Friday and for dinner from Wednesday to Saturday inclusive. ... more less
