Beautiful relaxing weekendPosted Nov 26, 2013
Pros: very relaxing the grounds and gardens around the complex
Location: There is a lovely art gallery not to far away called compton verny its a real gem of a find
what a really lovely place must say now we stayed in the hotel and not the hall. we stayed two nights the location and grounds are fabulous the room was clean and of a good size with a large bathroom and comfy bed. Staff was very friendly and welcoming the breakfast was a buffet with very good choices and the coffee was great.we couldn't get into the restaurant as it was fully booked but we had our evening meal in the bar same menu as the restaurant. The service and food was fantastic and with a very nice wine list and the cocktails are very good and tasty and I recommend you try the Puma Colada. The leisure facilities was clean and tidy and i made use of the pool, sauna and steam room but this was in a separate complex. The only negative thing i have to say is that it was quite a walk from our room we were staying in the orchard block to get to breakfast and other facilities.I would def stay here again think i would like to stay in the hall as well.

Mind the difference between the Hotel and the HallPosted Nov 21, 2013
Pros: Beautiful grounds, the feel of a stately country castle, drop-dead gorgeous suites ($$) in the Hall. Lovely staff.
Cons: Sometimes minor things happen (missing towels, troublesome key, etc). The important thing is that guests are cared for and that was clearly the case!
Location: Enjoy the countryside, visit Shakespeare country.
The hotel is perfectly nice: clean, roomy, modern enough. The Hall is the prestige property: venerable, beautiful, stately. Both are fine, depending on what you're looking for: just make sure you know what you are reserving. That said, we were treated beautifully. There were a few minor problems on check-in, but the staff were absolutely top-notch in taking care of them, and us. Definitely recommend this hotel as a great choice, and only a few miles outside Stratford-on-Avon!

Disappointed!Posted Nov 19, 2013
I booked a 2 night weekend break to celebrate my husband's birthday. The hotel website says that it is a Luxury 4* hotel so was expecting something a bit special. Arrived in the dark and couldn't read the direction signs as we were blinded by spotlights. When we finally checked in we were told to return to our car and drive to our room. Our room was very basic - nothing like the photos on the website. We had to walk outside in the cold to the restaurant for breakfast so that involved coats etc. When we returned to the hotel after a day Xmas shopping with lots of bags our room keys no longer worked so had to lug everything to reception for them to reactivate our cards. If you just want somewhere to sleep in this area then stay here but if like us you wanted a bit of luxury, then look elsewhere. Our room was very much like a roadside travel lodge to be honest. Didn't bother with the spa facilities as so disappointed with the hotel.

Spectacular setting,ideal for a weddingPosted Nov 18, 2013
Pros: Good food and reasonably priced
Cons: Get a reliable taxi service
Location: Ideal for a wedding,no time to explore.
Only one problem,the taxi ordered at Reception and doubled checked by me did not turn up but fortunately and by extreme chance we managed to get a lift to the railway station with friends.Not the best way to catch a Sunday train!!

Lovely hotel in beautiful groundsPosted Nov 18, 2013
Pros: The modern feel and excellent service.
Location: Beautiful grounds.
We stayed in the hotel to attend a wedding in Walton Hall. I would recommend the hotel. Although we did not eat dinner in the Hotel, the breakfast was excellent and the food in the Hall was exceptional. The grounds are beautiful with some lovely walks.

Honeymoon in the countryPosted Nov 7, 2013
Pros: Great surroundings.
Cons: The newer 'hotel' isn't quite as characterful as the 'hall'
Location: Warwickshire is great, full of history with Warwick town, Warwick Castle, Stratford Upon Avon and the beautiful village of Bourton on the Water nearby
Walton Hall is surrounded by fantastic grounds, with lake and river. It is a definite retreat. Be aware there is Walton Hall and the newer Walton Hall Hotel, where we stayed. They are both part of the same complex, but are two separate hotels. The hall itself looks grand, with a bridge and a tree lined drive. The property is actually a complex consisting of the hall, plus a swimming pool/spa and a separate hotel, with some rooms in detached blocks. We spent our honeymoon in one of these blocks, which meant walking outside to go to reception, the restaurant or the pool. The rooms were typical of a higher end chain hotel. Not sure about the 4 star rating, but certainly no complaints for the price we paid. We ate in the Orangery restaurant on the first night. Food was a little more expensive, averaging around £25 a head for 2 courses and a drink, but was very nice. Breakfast was a buffet, with fruit juices, cereals, hot food, in the same restaurant. That was inclusive of our room rate. On second night, we went to Kings ahead in the village. It is part of the Village Inns chain and cheaper, better selection than the hotel restaurant. We enjoyed walking in the grounds of the hotel, it was much better than being in a city centre location. The hotel itself was great. The heating took a bit of understanding, as the thermostat was on the low profile radiator, not a wall panel and the radiator also had a on/off switch on the side. This isn't a complaint, just a variation on what you no

Nice comfortable hotelPosted Oct 30, 2013
Pros: It's seclusion and rural setting
Cons: as in the description, a better finish when maintenance has been carried out
Location: Excellent for stratford up on avon, warwick, leamington spa
This is a nice hotel that is just beginning to get a little run down round the edges. Ceiling furniture not quite refitted correctly after maintenance, corners showing signs of one too many scuffs and bumps. Some of the lights and towel rails not working. Perhaps a little more attention to the books than to the estate. This though is a lovely hotel and we will look to go again

Very nice hotel and areaPosted Sep 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
Gorgeous hotel just on the outskirts in a quiet location with picturesque grounds. The room was spacious and clean and very comfortable. Wide selection for breakfast which was very nice, but for the weekend rush they needed more seating and staff to replenish food and utensils/cups.

Needs workPosted Sep 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
We booked a room as we were at a wedding at Walton Hall and wish we'd paid the extra to stay there. Walton hotel is clean and functional but massively overpriced for what is essentially a travellodge. Our very small airtight double (300) had broken aircon which meant the room was too hot to sleep in. There was no phone to call reception even though there was a list of phone numbers on the desk. When I gave in, got dressed and walked to reception at 4am there was no one there and no one came in the 10mins I waited. In the morning when I mentioned it to reception they gave me a managers email rather than calling a manager over and breakfast was nothing short of a fiasco with neither the kitchen or the front of house staff being able to cater to the volume of guests. I would expect this at £50 a night not £120.

Excellent as always!!!Posted Sep 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
As regular visitors we are NEVER disappointed at the quality of service and friendliness of the staff. We try to make excuses whenever possible to visit Walton Hall and Hotel for both pleasure and business....and being Leisure Club members look forward to the added benefit of a free room upgrade when availability permits.The scenery is stunning and the rooms always comfortable at a VERY reasonable...internet hunted...price.We are looking forward to our next break when we can once again relax and soak up the atmosphere
