Lovely, friendly staff & a nice environment. Drinks were good & food was nice, except the ciabatta used for the sandwich was cold & hard - would’ve been better warmed up.

There was understandably a limited menu under the circumstances. But that said we thoroughly enjoyed the pizza and beer. The staff were delightful and friendly making sure we had everything we needed.

Very poor atmosphere, I ordered a cocktail which was basic....charged £8 which was shocking for the quality, not even in the correct glass, we arrived on time and we’re rushed to finish our drinks and food as last orders was at 8pm. I wouldn’t visit again.

I’ve alsways know the food at Lea Marston to be very good. However the outdoor dining menu was poor at best. The food took a very long time to come. My order was wrong, and the food itself was far below what I’d expect. No kids menu. Very expensive too.

It’s a nice place however the quality of food does not match the prices / food is overpriced (beef burgers tasted similar to burger served at a van outside my office work sort of places). Beers in the beer garden were served in plastic cups. There were only also one type of beer (Stella) and one cider from drafts. When you pay hire price you would expect a better experience or quality. Also, the menu there is very limited, does not match the online menu.

Limited menu and charged for blankets. No outdoor heating. Service was impeccable though. Slightly over priced for 3 burgers and nachos @ £83

Rooms were outdated, on booking.com you see really nice new modern rooms but you are lucky if you get one, breakfast at 9.30 was cold and you get one of everything 1 bacon 1 sausage 1 egg 1 hash brown. Staff were Really nice, spa was good but cold. Shower was excellent best shower I’ve ever had in a hotel. Room was cold, radiator didn’t work. Golf was fantastic and great price. Nice little nine hole course with decent challenge and nicely maintained. I would stay here again too play golf but that’s it

We booked a stay, breakfast & dine offer. The dine offer was based on 3 courses. We were only served 2 of the courses. The food was cold. We also asked for Floater coffees, there was no milk, the bar attendant asked the supervisor what to do. The Supervisor advised to serve them as Irish Coffees anyway and charge full price. I was at the bar and heard this conversation. I complained on the evening to Reception (room 70). We were celebrating our 5th Wedding anniversary so very disappointed. To top the lot breakfast was poor, no scrambled eggs, no mushrooms and it was cold. To be honest I could not be bothered to complain. We are regulars at Lea Marston, family weddings, anniversaries and just general stays, but, it will be a long time before I consider staying again.

Lea Marston will always hold a special place in my heart as this is where I got married 18 years ago and we like to have a treat and stay every now and again. Unfortunately I feel the standards are slipping and things are definitely not as luxurious as they once was. I paid £155 to stay and dine In a suite. The royal suite was not worth the extra money paid it needs updating. Stained carpets, bed base and very uncomfortable lounge furniture. Bathroom however was rather nice. Hospitality tray was disappointing, no biscuits or sweetener and only a couple of milk cartons. On top of the £155 we had to pay for breakfast, which was not the best. No croissants as there usually is, even with covid I’m sure these could be served to order, tiny orange juice glasses only 1/2 full, therefore had to keep asking for a refill. There was no availability to use the pool either. Ordered a ham sandwich for lunch, was then informed they had ran out of ham. Our evening meal was just ok. All in all I didn’t feel we received value for money, defiantly not as good as it used to be. After being a customer for around 20 years I feel it’s time to to try elsewhere. Reception staff friendly and welcoming.

I booked dinner for 19:30 but was told at reception upon arrival that it had been changed to 19:00, which wasn’t a problem. Myself and my friend arrived at 19:00 and waited at the door for around 10 minutes whilst the gentleman figured out how to find my name on the reservation list. We were sat at our table for 30 minutes without service and I had to ask to order our food and drinks. It took an hour for our starters to arrive, a further hour for our mains to arrive and a further hour for our dessert to arrive. There were never any staff around and we noticed that other tables were also waiting for a long time. We had to find someone to ask for another drink.. as again the staff were no one to be seen. The food was just okay, I had profiteroles for dessert which were still frozen which wasn’t great. We finally finished our meal at 23:00 after an hour wait for each course. There were no staff around so had to find someone to sort the bill out. The breakfast in the morning was the same chaos. The little staff that were on continued to walk past a 10 person queue without seating anyone for 15 minutes. Organisation on both the evening and breakfast meal was terrible. A real let down to what we thought was a nice hotel.. we would return to stay at the hotel but definitely eat elsewhere.

On arrival there was a very unclear one way system in place so we ended up at the wrong end of the bar for service. No one advising / guiding you. When i sat down with my drink i noticed there was lipstick all around the glass. Very bad at any time but horrifying during these covid times. It was replaced when the food order was placed. Starters arrived without any cutlery or napkins. Mains arrived without the starters being cleared and again without any cutlery. No one came to check if the meal was ok. I ordered a medium rare steak but it was well done. I was so hungry I just ate it. We were going to order dessert but no one came to clear the table or ask us if we wanted dessert or coffee. Overall an extremely poor and dissatisfying experience at a 4* hotel.

I was disappointed with the reduced menu and was not informed before I arrived. The food was not to the standard I expected. The service was slow.
