"I stayed here for a weekend with my girlfriends, we…"
I stayed here for a weekend with my girlfriends, we loved Sopwell House, it was very clean, and the staff were friendly and lovely food. I will definitely be going back there again in the futureRead moreLess
"The great thing about this hotel is its proximity to…"
The great thing about this hotel is its proximity to London (if you live there, that is!) I went for a night with a group of girlfriends and it was a really welcome break. The hotel itself is set in beautiful grounds and the rooms were perfectly satisfactory. The spa was 'okay' - nothing special - although I didn't have any of the treatments, which meant I was entitled to use the pool and steamrooms which were fine. A couple of friends said the treatments were good. I think this does reflect the price which I thought was very reasonable. The downside was that the restaurant wasn't really up to scratch and the staff not particularly helpful. Tis true what the other reviewer said - lots of footballers signed shirts on the walls but I quite liked that! Would I go back? not in a hurry but if I was after a cheapish, easy night away with a pleasant pool and steam, then I guess I would consider it, but next time I think I'd venture out to eat.Read moreLess
"Not great to be honest. We did a mothers/daughters package…"
Not great to be honest. We did a mothers/daughters package with spa treatments and overnight stay. The restaurant meal was cold and rather bland. The person doing the spa treatment seemed bored, uninterested and I've had far better treatments. Worst of all, the hotel bedroom was below the back-door of the restaurant and in the middle of the night, the restaurant staff were chatting really loudly and throwing bottles and waste into the bins making loud crashing noises for about half an hour. Also the decor is a bit naff - framed signed football shirts everywhere! Not really recommended, sorry!Read moreLess
