Dear piney56, Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent time with us. I will pass on your comments to the Spa team. I am delighted that you enjoyed your time with us and we look forward to seeing you soon.
I enjoyed an excellent surprise birthday treat earlier this month at this delightful hotel. The staff are friendly, efficient and welcoming. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. I wanted to say a special thanks to Sian for organising everything along with the most beautiful flowers. Our room was lovely and spacious near the spa and looking out onto the back gardens. Being a dog friendly hotel is a bonus. Our pooch was allowed into the bar and lounge (understandably not the restaurant) and able to explore the gardens and surrounding areas for decent walks so he was very happy.
We started the evening tasting some of the large selection of gins with a few nibbles in the bar. Dinner in the restaurant was very enjoyable. The amuse-bouche melted. Starters: crab salad, chicken parfait, game terrine and sweet breads were all delicious. We all chose the beef for mains which was complimented by a smooth and rich Malbec. We managed to pop into the kitchen afterwards to say a quick thank you to chef Marcus McGuiness.
The following day we tried to spend some time relaxing in the spa which is good but pretty busy as it seems to have outside members and not just guests from the hotel. The Spa has a wide variety of treatments and I chose an Espa hot Stone treatment. I was feeling a bit fagile from back issues and nearly cancelled it; luckily I didn’t as it really helped and I actually felt lots better and more relaxed afterwards.
We had a lovely time at The Greenway and felt well looked after and would definitely come back and stay again.
Dear illygirl, Thank you for your recent review. It is great to hear what a lovely time you had with us and I shall certainly pass on your comments to the team. I very much hope to welcome you back again soon.
We came as a family for Christmas. The welcome was perfect with immediate help with luggage and invited to our rooms, no skulking behind reception desks, whatever level of staff everyone helped guests to have a great Christmas. The rooms were spacious and spotless, the housekeeping standards were superb and this is not a new building. The food was excellent although I agree with another reviewer the taster courses were sometimes a little slapdash in recycled mustard pots and other unusual containers. The service could be a bit slow but they were catering for residents and non residents and perhaps the number of course although appreciatecmay have been a tad over ambitious given the numbers but that is only a very minor niggle. But the pre dinner nibbles with drinks were a lovely touch. All the staff were knowledgeable about the food and indeed the wines. What was so special was the attention to detail, excellent quality of Christmas decorations, crackers etc and the Santa gifts on the doors on a Christmas Eve, mini drink, chocolates and carrot for the reindeer. The following morning we all had a further generous gift outside our bedroom doors. The spa was a treat, outside jacuzzi ( bubbling away in the snow ! ). The steam room, sauna etc plus the beautifully warm pool with the power jets and jacuzzi spots was a lovely addition to our holiday. Christmas is difficult to get right, some want to be left alone to relax, some want a house party atmosphere with ice breaking session etc but Greenways got it just right, groups were made up, others stayed alone and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves the only group activity as such was the quiz. We particularly enjoyed the fact that there was fruit, nuts and chocolates laid out in the dressing room. I understand that a new manager last year has made great improvements, certainly all the staff were happy and good at their jobs. Very hard to fault - we have booked to return.
Dear dev0nexpl0rer, Thank you for your recent review. It is great to hear what a lovely time you had with us. I have noted your comments and will discuss with the team. I look forward to welcoming you back.
Dined here using a gift voucher for Sunday Lunch. Warm welcome on arrival and shown through to warm lounge for drinks and a chance to look at menu. Small but interesting choice of starter, main and dessert. Shown through to colder restaurant area to rear of building which on a sunny day would have had wonderful views of country and hills beyond. However on our day of visiting the weather was inclement and a combination of heavy rain and strong winds meant that sitting in the tables by external windows proved a little chilly. Pulling some curtains resolved the comfort issue but lost the diners their view out.
Service was excellent overall although it appeared to vary between tables ( were some diners residents perhaps? ). The food was both enticing to look at and good to eat with my delicious roast beef coming with the largest Yorkshire pudding I have seen in some time. Starters and Desserts were also good. Drinks were a little expensive perhaps.
Would be interested in returning for Afternoon tea but on a much warmer day in the summer, although I understand this would have been served in the lounge.
Dear SloughWanderer, Thank you for your recent review. I very much appreciate your feedback. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your lunch with us and I do appologise if you found the dining room a little on the chilly side. I do very much hope we can welcome you back for both lunch or an afternoon tea in the near future.
About 3 miles South of Cheltenham, hotel, spa and restaurant. Visited for dinner mid week. Food was good, decent wine range, petit fours etc. Only criticism was there inability to make good tea! Far too many leaves inserted into the pot!
Dear 99PSB, Thank you for your review of your recent time with us. I am glad that you enjoyed your meal with us and I shall certainly look into your comments regarding the tea personally. I do hope we can welcome you back soon.
Beautiful main building, staff helpful and welcoming. Tastefully decorated and clean.No lift or disabled facilities whatsoever. Unfortunately had to stay in gate house which was by main road so very noisy, could not sleep as traffic continuous, had to drive some half mile to main house for meals going out in the cold each meal time or for access to spa.No hand rail by bath, no shelf in shower for shower gel or soap. Food very good quality. Definitely not a hotel to use if you are disabled or cannot walk well.
Dear 43dog, Thank you for your recent review on your stay with us. I am sorry that the room was not explained to you more clearly and shall certainly discuss this with our reception team. I am glad that you enjoyed your meals and that you found the staff helpful and welcoming.
