About Pendley Manor Hotel
Pendley Manor is home to the award-winning Oak Restaurant as well as the unique Peacock Lounge and Shakespeare Bar. Enjoy dining in our 2 AA Rosette-awarded restaurant; serving exciting and imaginative food, classic afternoon teas and a large selection of wine - in the breathtaking Hertfordshire countryside.
Seriously underwhelmed both by the choice of ‘included’ dinner and the food itself. Really quite awful evening dining in a dimly lit room. Waiting staff are attentive without being intrusive.
Bland. Low level corporate experience
We loved our stay and particularly the room (148) which was the best ensuite room we've ever occupied. Loved the food and in particular the Head Waiter and Reception staff. Only one criticism - The Reception area was quite dark, and the steps entering were difficult to climb - as my husband has walking difficulties - requires a handrail. Other than that - we'll be booking again!
My mother and I had a lovely afternoon celebrating her birthday, with one of your afternoon teas! Would definitely recommend and already plan to come back.
The room we had high tea in was incredibly quiet, with no background music to keep a warming atmosphere. It made having a discussion feel awkward as the whole room could hear. The waiters put us right next to another table although the rest of the room was empty. We had the sweet only and full afternoon tea, a difference in cost of almost £8, however the only difference between them was 4 very small finger sandwiches. This didn't seem to justify the price. The estate itself is lovely and was really beautiful to walk around
Excellent afternoon tea in a tranquil setting. Thank you.
There are a number of cream teas available now and this was not the best value for money. Our order was wrong (we were given the wrong tea) and I never received mine as there seemed to be a change of shift. It was average.
Staff didn’t seem to know what they were doing. We came for a peaceful afternoon tea, had a lovely table in the conservatory to then be disturbed by smashing of tiles and loud drilling right behind us. Not impressed and not happy with the amount we paid - far from a peaceful afternoon!
we booked a 4poster room to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The room although is huge the décor and fittings are very much out dated. The TV was a throwback to the early 80s, why isn't there a modern Flat screen in there? the Bathroom shower leaked all over the floor and the WC flush was slow. I know some of the other rooms have been updated but surely if you are charging nearly £300 for a Romantic Getaway weekend in the 4 post room then please make sure it is updated first.The mattress was hard so we both had backaches in the morning. Breakfast was the best we had the staff friendly and helpful, but the charges when you come to checkout at reception double check the bill before you leave and query it as we Drinks Vouchers to use in the bar but they tried to charge us for them at check out!! other than décor in the room it was a relaxing stay.....
Lovely place to stay.
The food was very good. The sandwiches were exceptionally tasty. We had good service once we had found someone to serve us. The room we were in lacked atmosphere but was light and airy. I preferred it when the tables were laid with white table linen, which added to the atmosphere.
Only criticism regarding meal was having to pay for a bread basket. One roll is generally sufficient and is normally without charge. Our waitress was excellent.
It was a very relaxing afternoon and nobody had to worry about parking
We stayed in Pendley Manor before flying from Luton Airport and had a lovely 3 course meal in the Oak Restaurant. I'm vegan and had a menu with a lot of choises and everything was delicious (I still dream about that mushroom risotto!) The restaurant is beautiful and has a nice atmosphere. All members of staff are extremely friendly and helpful! Will definitely come back!
Recently refurbished room was very well equipped. The bed was overly firm and uncomfortable to sleep on. There was no bath in the en suite bathroom. The external upper window was held open by the window latch, which must have been removed when repainted. The double opening doors were secured by a cable screwed across the two doors, so they rattled if there was any wind. After checking in and entering the Room in mid afternoon we were subject to intensive, loud and continuous drilling noise from work on the refurbishment. There were similar builkding noises early the following morning. The Restaurant lacked atmosphere. The table for two was extremely small, meaning it was difficult at both dinner and breakfast to accommodate the cutlery, crockery, condiments etc. The food was bland and plainly presented, with little finesse. For a 4* Hotel of this quality and price it was disappointing that breakfast was not cooked to order. Service was basic and charmless with no warmth at all. Clearly this Hotel is undergoing a major refurbishment and transformation, but seems to have lost focus on customer service on the way through. Any basic inspection of the work completed on the Room would have identified the shoddy workmanship on the external window. Equally with a little attention the experience of dining in the Restaurant could be greatly improved.
Rooms are fine but the service, choice and cost of meal for supper was poor.
Service and food excellent
The location and surround was very nice but only disappointments were: Check in too late as it's at 3pm Mix up with cot in rooms as rhe cot was in my daughter's room and I could not access it with my grandson so ended up not using it since my daughter were not there to switch rooms and I had no key. At 10am there were very very loud drilling as they are doing maintenance works or renovation. It was so very loud and disturbed my morning rest. Breakfast there were a fly on the breakfast cheese buffet. This should be covered.
Really lovely meal experience. Food quality was excellent and choice of menu well balanced. The food was cooked perfectly and the rich sauce nicely seasoned. Service very good despite it being busy elsewhere in the hotel.
Staff didn’t seem to care about us, there wasn’t much of a welcome and no rapport. Wasn’t impressed at all!
Fantastic afternoon tea
Great food, service was a little too attentive.
Helpful staff. Hotel is clean and comfortable with good spa facilities. The hot water was not hot enough.
