Nice hotel
Impressive house, lovely room but a little let down by the need to climb up and down stairs when clearly i was not going to be able to easily as I had crutches

Had an amazing stay here. The whole hotel is beautiful and as you walk into reception to be greeted by a roaring fire with wellies all around it, you know you are going to enjoy your stay. Everywhere was immaculate, the rooms were very well equipped. We had afternoon tea, which was lovely, and plenty of good quality cocktails. Breakfast was excellent too. Lovely, lovely staff. Can't fault it, amazing hotel.

We attended a wedding in the nearby church. For those with large cars, the roads are tiny. Leave the Bentley at home and use the nanny’s car.

Thanks for the hospitality and the wonderful staff at The Lainston House. The reception team were superb, especially Kamile and the Portuguese chap. I actually wish I could have booked and stayed for longer. See you back soon!
