The hotel was lovely. We stayed in a feature room which was well worth it. It was like a large suite. The food was lovely and the staff were very friendly and efficient. It's a shame that the little details of the building maintenance aren't up to the same standard. A lick of paint and a sweep round in the courtyard would make all the difference. This doesn't however distract from what a lovely building this is and so very comfortable. Collapse

Our room was in the modern part to the side of the main house. I think these rooms are nicer than the ones in the house which reminded me a bit of an old people's home and could do with updating. Our room was nice, it was very spacious and clean, and modern. The sheets and towels were good quality and the bed was comfy. What lets the hotel down is the price. I originally booked a room via Late Rooms, but closer to the time found a better deal on Expedia. The room being advertised for £160 was available for £110 instead. If the room had cost me £160 I'd have been really disappointed and felt conned. I was part of a wedding party staying at the hotel (the venue was close by) and had emailed beforehand to request an early check in. I was told I'd have to see on the day (fair enough) or pay £30 for it to be guaranteed. On the day itself another member of the party called ahead to request an early check in and was told it would be £50 to have it guaranteed! A bit cheeky considering that when I arrived at the hotel there weren't many cars in the car park so I doubt the hotel was full. Luckily we were able to get ready in the bride's room with her (as planned) and just before we left for the wedding, one room became available. It was too late to chuck our bags in so we left them in the car, and the rest of the group popped back from the wedding reception to check in after 3pm rather than having to rely on the night porter being around which was a bit of a pain, and I think that given the hotel knew about this in advance they could have been more accommodating. Breakfast wasn't great. The food was pretty poor and only luke warm, and wasn't great quality ingredients and the portions were fairly mean - one egg with a full english breakfast. Luckily the service was fairly quick, but some of the people around us were left waiting for ages to be served as there seemed to only be one waitress on duty. If you're having a wedding here, or at any of the venues nearby then I'd strongly suggest you try and arrange a good price in advance for your guests, and possibly reserve some of the modern rooms for the them. And make sure that you reserve an area in the dining room for breakfast, it was a bit annoying that we were scattered all over the room when we'd all stayed especially to have breakfast together.

We booked to stay here overnight for a wedding nearby. The hotel was top of the recommended list so we assumed incorrectly that they would be welcoming to members of the wedding party. We arrived about 12.15pm on a Saturday hoping to check in. There was nobody to be seen at the reception. I tried calling the phone which I listened to ringing for about 3 minutes until it rung off. Eventually my wife went wandering and found the young lady in charge of reception in a side room. She was sharply dressed with a lovely smile which hid a total F U attitude. Check in was not until 3pm, (wedding started at 2pm about 4 miles away), no there was no room we could use to change and freshen up, there were some toilets down the corridor if you want, no you can't check in to have a key for later, there "should" be a night watchman on later who can let you in. All in all one of the least welcoming hotels I've ever arrived at. I appreciate that the room had only recently been vacated and quite probably was never going to be ready in time for us to get changed in but something along the lines of "I'll do my level best to get something ready for you in time but I can't promise" would have placated me, but the flat refusal to even try and help was disappointing. We gave up and went to the wedding venue early and although they were all hands to the pumps getting ready, they offered us a room to get changed in with no fuss. Thanks Gildings Barn, you know how to welcome a guest. After the wedding we arrived back at Ghyll Manor and met the night watchman, an older gentleman who was much more suited to a role in a hotel. He checked us in quickly and apologised for not being able to see us to our room as he was the only one on duty and more guests from the wedding were arriving soon. He gave us easy directions to the room and wished us goodnight. That's how it should be done :-) The room itself was fine, a large comfortable bed in a spacious room. Bathroom a little tired, (flaky paint on the ceiling and messy repairs to the sealant abounded), but it was clean and well stocked with towels and toiletries. We had a good night's sleep. In the morning I needed to call a cab to go back to the venue to retrieve my car. I decided to call reception to see if they had a local cab number as none was provided in the hotel literature. Once again I was left waiting for an answer until the phone rang off itself. At least there is internet available at the hotel so I could find a cab online. Breakfast was also disappointing. We were efficiently sat at a table and although we ordered tea and coffee straight away, nothing arrived for about 15 minutes so we eventually ordered again. When the tea finally arrived we tried to order breakfast, but we had to wait again as the waitress rushed straight off. We eventually got our breakfast about 45 minutes after arriving in the dining room, which wasn't bad I suppose as the table next to us had arrived before us and got theirs after us. To be fair there did seem to be one young lady running around sorting out all the problems that the other staff were either creating. I'd spotted the young lady who so professionally greeted us the previous day while we were waiting for breakfast. Funnily enough when we came to leave, she was nowhere to be seen. Another guest was obviously waiting to check out and one of the restaurant staff was saying to them, "I don't know where she is." I guess hiding in the side room again, but decided I would just dump the key and go. If this had been a cheap night's stay I would have ignored all the idiosyncrasies, however Ghyll Manor sells itself as an upmarket venue with high class restaurant and top notch facilities and prices itself to match. I'm afraid they didn't succeed in tempting me to return. Collapse

Stayed 4 nights in this rather quaint hotel. The room was very nice and comfortable. Not that I spent a great deal of time in it. Had all the usual facilities, hair dryer, iron/board trouser press tea coffee TV. Decent shower. Very nice thick fluffy towels. Ate in the restaurant and evening meals (bar one) were very nice. One just wasn't to my own personal taste. breakfast was fabulous in that I was more than a little fussy and they were very accommodating. Many thanks to the chef. I should have explored the Hotel and the grounds more however I didn't have much time to do so. I'm sure they are very beautiful from what I saw off them. All in all a very pleasant stay. thank you.

This was the first time that we have stayed at this hotel . Albeit very quaint and authentic it was very tired and needed some work. The staff very reasonably friendly but did not give you the impression that you were welcome. We were looking forward to sampling the evening menu and were really disappointed. The quality of the food was in our opinion poor and lacked taste . It was very bland and certainly over priced and was not served with any vegetables. All sides had to be ordered sepataely at £3 plus for potatoes and carrots. Absolutely ridiculous. No wonder no one stays there for there evening meal. If and that is a big if we do venture there again we will eat at the PLough Inn which is just up the road Collapse
