Do not make a group booking with this hotel.

trippedin2015, Singapore, Singapore
In November 2016 I made a group reservation of 15 rooms for 3 nights in October 2017 (this gave the hotel 11 months prior notice). The 15 room reservation was accepted and a date, 2.5 months later, was agreed with the manager (discussed personally on the phone and confirmed by email) by which I would confirm the precise room requirements for the group and make the final confirmation of the booking. However, when I did this today, 2 weeks earlier than the agreed date, I was curtly informed by the manager that my reserved 15 room booking would not be honoured as the hotel was now fully booked for the 3 previously agreed nights.

Travel zoo deal

Tom B, Motherwell, United Kingdom
Just back from this lovely hotel,it was a deal on travel zoo , two nights b&b with eight course taster menu, I think the travel zoo price was on the money I don't think it's worth paying full price ,also because I could only go at the weekend there was a £20 a night supplement which I think in this day and age is a rip of , hotel it's self is smart and well done up, nice bar area with log burning fire , restaurant tastefully decorated,and a nicely laid out conservatory,nice walled garden to sit in and watch the birds feeding on their feeders , bedroom was nicely decorated and very clean as was bathroom, very quite at night no road noise , if your into astronomy the hotel has an observatory which you can pay extra to view the telescope and have talk on the stars and planets was interesting,All staff that I encountered were very friendly and polite , the hotel has a cat that wonders about the bar area so bare this in mind if you don't like cats , the taster menu was very good but as it was a taster menu it might not satisfy some people's appetite, portions for me personally were small , also once there you are a captive audience unless you want to drive around , if you want an other drink or meal then you can walk to the black bull hotel five minutes walk away

A Real Gem

mfairley2016, Rugby, United Kingdom
We had a couple of nights in the luxury lodge and it was amazing. The rooms are spacious, clean and the little details make this a special stay, from the huge shower and jacuzzi bath to the toiletries selection and fresh fruit on arrival. Could not fault the food and drink, the Taster menu is to be recommended and the range of gins, beers etc was a real treat.

New Year treat

bluesister, middlesbrough
Have just returned from a lovely couple of days over New Year at Battlesteads. This was our first visit but wont be the last. The place is warm and comfortable, the bedroom was a bit small but beautifully clean and well equipped, food was good and plentiful and served with a smile (staff are terrific). We cannot fault the place. Wark is a lovely village in fabulous countryside and we look forward to exploring the area in better weather.

Second visit was just as good!

KathrynT, Sheffield, United Kingdom
We stayed here in August and enjoyed it so much that we decided to visit again. This time all the extension to the bar area was finished and I have to day what a good job they have done. Read my previous review for lots of information! We again had the eight course taster meal and this time the fish was mackerel based and the mains beef cheeks, both very nice. The second night I had cod on mash and roasted tomatoes......gorgeous, and my husband had steak again. I had emailed the hotel to ask if we could have the same room as before which was one of the lodges outside (well worth the extra) which they did! We enjoyed the meals and our stay as much as last time. Will definitely visit's in a beautiful area....the staff are very friendly and the food is wonderful.
