Very lovely and romantic ambience. Staff were very welcoming and pleasant. The Oak Room restaurant staff was very attentive and made sure we were looked after whilst dining. Its a very calming and peaceful ambience inside and out of the hotel and restaurant. We love the walks around the grounds. We are definitely coming back to stay over for couple of nights. Excellent.

SO, the whole thing was rather disappointing . We had booked afternoon tea for 8 people at 2pm , we waited , waited and waited , and the staff all appeared totally clueless , The only person who was so lovely was Yaon. we had a problem with prosecco , it wasn't on the menu , they could find a price , then when it did come , it was not chilled. We actually arrived well on time , early actually at 1.30 and our afternoon tea did not arrive until 2.50pm, , so we waited 1 hour 20 minutes for it to arrive . The tea was far too strong , We had all ordered speciality teas, and they had put practically a half tea pot full of leaves in the tea pot . All our teas were over stewed , Lady grey had been ordered and then when all the other teas came out , we were told they had none. When the food eventually arrived , it was lovely . But the service was totally shocking . We spoke to both managers both called Cliff , and complained . The first manager didn't seem to do very much , however the second Cliff was lovely and apologetic . Now the place was not busy , there were loads of staff milling about .the afternoon tea had been pre ordered , How could they get it so wrong ?. I will go back and give them a second chance , but not a third . Hand picked hotels ?? you shouldn't hand pick this one for afternoon tea . Thank you to the second Cliff , who amended our bill accordingly , and for that we thank you and we will be back , but please get your customer service right and you will have a great product.

Place was cold and cheerless. Doors wide open and no heating. Decor quite scruffy and in need of a refurb. Bar area was far too small. Staff were attentive and helpful but bread on afternoon tea sandwiches was a bit dry. Thank goodness it was on a 2 for 1 deal. It was a special occasion and we expected more from handpicked having spent time in other hotels in the chain.

Drinks were far too expensive. Food was nice but again, a little pricey. Having to pay a further £3.50 x 2 for some peas and cabbage is a bit frustrating. Service was good though and staff very friendly.

Staff were welcoming and friendly as always however the service was appalling slow and inattentive. Our (Afternoon Tea) beverages arrived soon after ordering. An inexplicable delay then followed as we awaited our food - which there was no mention or apology for - 45 mins - 1 hr later. No checks were made to inquire if all was well and had to flag 2 members of staff for a single jug of hot water, which took over 20 mins to deliver. Water glasses were laid but no water was offered which, again required getting the attention of a server to rectify. The food was ok despite the choice of blackcurrant jam with scones being an odd but not unpleasant one, however the Victoria Sponge was layered with frosting instead of traditional cream, and was far too sweet (and left). The Oak Room is dimly lit in a somewhat secluded part of the hotel, obscured from the impressive views over the terrace which was slightly disappointing. Having stayed at Ettington and being familiar with the standard of service they're capable of (and usual achieve), it's disappointing that on this occasion their service fell well short of the standard expected. Afternoon Tea at Ettington is reasonably priced but would not recommend unless substantial improvements were made to the service.

We are regular visitors to Ettington Park. Champagne afternoon tea was, as ever, delightful! From the Bruno Paillard champagne served in champagne saucers (I do love those!) to the delicious sandwiches, patisserie and scones, it was all good and a tasty selection (apart from soggy bottom pastry on the orange and mascarpone tart - oops, what would Mary say?!) . A change of sandwich filling option was cheerfully accepted, and our afternoon tea waiter John was solicitous throughout.

Good evening. We attended the booked the ‘spring Luncheon’ offer for 4 adults today. What a disappointment . Firstly our reserved table was set in the lounge- food to be served on a low coffee table! Apparently ‘not enough staff ‘to serve in the dining room. We complained however reception staff just shrugged. Eventually the barman pushed 2 higher tables together. The English Spring lunch consisted of the following main course options-open steak pie, goats cheese tart & curry , although on the advertised website Spring Lamb was supposedly an option.... I selected the tart which was appalling . At our request this was removed from the bill. We had our 3 day wedding reaction at this hotel in August 2013 & have returned since for anniversaries, for family afternoon teas & always found the food & service wonderful. However today the whole experience was dreadful. The staff were totally disinterested . Not sure why you are offering a lunch option without appropriate menu or staff. Such a disappointing event. The venue is lovely but that doesn’t mean anything if the sentiment isn’t carried through regarding food and service! Previously we have always looked forward to attending planned events at this hotel - we are totally non plussed by today’s disaster. I hope you will take note of these comments and address accordingly. Thank you.

We were given the gift of a silver afternoon tea & really felt let down. The bread was also hard/stale. The cakes were bland and too sweet. We have been to another hall and could not eat everything and had a box with cakes left over. On the up side we stayed overnight (another gift) room (5) was very warm and we could not open a window for fresh air, however the breakfast was very good & really enjoyed it. Concierge was a lovely man who has Tourette’s, he apologised. However I think he has no need to. It’s quite obvious he has the syndrome and if guests are bothered then it’s their small mindedness. Never saw a ghost 👻 either not even the toad but good stories 😂. Place is full of history though

Slightly disappointed with the food. Chips were not nice at all and didn’t rate the batter on fish. Had nicer from a fish and chip shop. No effort was made to acknowledge our meal was for a very special occasion... our Silver Wedding anniversary... not so much as s complementary drink.
