Excellent 24hr break which we thoroughly enjoyed. Kilworth lived up to all our expectations. Hope to be back soon. Only other comment is about overall temperature. We think you could reduce by 1 degree and help save the planet! Thank you to every member of the team who all helped create a very welcoming atmosphere

As we had savoury and sweet teas I would have appreciated a clean plate after finishing the savoury course.

Wonderful setting however due to rain this was dripping on us through the orignary roof, other guests where experiencing this too. Cakes and scones devine. Fantsatic service, very friendly and attentive. Tea pot spout did not pour well, my friend and I both eneded up wearing the tea. Sandwiches had lovely filling however the bread was dry.

We had to wait a very long time for our afternoon tea to be served. I found it very disappointing as there were only a few sandwiches and no other savoury treats. The scones were nice, but the other cakes were not very tasty, extremely sweet. The atmosphere is always lovely in the orangery.

I booked breakfast via telephone, we did not stay over night. I was assured on the the phone that the breakfast would be in the orangery and this was confirmed in my confirmation email. On arrival we were slightly disappointed that we were in the Wordsworth room, however it still has its own character, but as we were celebrating a big birthday, we wanted something a little more. The food selection was great, and the service was brilliant; speaking of which Gwen who dealt with us was lovely, she was friendly and chatty and made our experience, thank you Gwen, you’re an asset to the Kilworth house team and your customer service is great!

I came here for afternoon tea with my mum as it was a Mother's Day present from last year. Considering how much the afternoon tea was I thought it was very expensive for the little amount of food we got. The food was nice, however the cakes weren't nice as there was 'cinnamon' in all the cakes, which was so spicy it felt like my tongue was on fire as I don't like spicy foods, I thought this was odd to put in a cake and wasn't nice. The atmosphere wasn't great as the area we were in was empty with only 3 other tables occupied. The service we received however was great

Wonderful highly trained, courteous and friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble and they made our afternoon tea very special in beautiful surroundings with a relaxed atmosphere. Kilworth House is old world grandeur and service at its very best - a bit like the Savoy in Leicestershire! The sandwiches and macarons were my favourite! Thank you so much x

Food was lovely. We ordered 1 savoury and 1 sweet afternoon tea so we could share but had to ask for extra cutlery as really didn’t want cream mixed with pate etc. Also waited and waited for milk jug for the tea but had to go and ask for that also. And £14 for 2 small glasses of Prosecco is way to much, wouldn’t have minded so much if we got a top up or refill but we didn’t.

Lovely place food and service wasn’t great for the price you pay. I was disappointed with the fish cake starter as It was really expensive and didn’t really taste as if there was any fish in them!
