Superb 9.2 From 87 reviews

Fair 4.0
We were not warned that we would be subjected to constant noise from drilling and mowers, even in the pool area where workers were fixing the no operating jacuzzi. clouds of dust outside. Massage booking problems, room change and no nearby toilet. 3am, loud noises on corridor. We request some compensation.

Very good 8.0
Nice place, poor breakfast
We were made most welcome and had an upgraded room which was a result. The brasserie we used for the evening meal was very cold, though the food was good. We thought the breakfast buffet was underwhelming for a £270 per night hotel. Loved the communial hydro spa in the cottage area.

Romantic Delight
Excellent friendly attentive staff. We stayed in one of the mews suites for our 20th wedding anniversary and were given a very sweet card, gift of macaroons, rose petals on the bed and a surprise little dessert and message at dinner. The accommodation is beautiful with excellent facilities. Soft drinks were complimentary in the fridge. The gated mews gardens were stunning and peaceful and the outdoor hydro pool was lovely and warm. We stayed in it for an hour undisturbed Saturday morning and never got round to using the main spa!

An all round perfect stay at Sopwell House. The ideal getaway. Not much in the immediate vicinity however the town centre is under 15 minutes drive away.

Beautiful setting, amazing hotel
We stayed for our 13 year anniversary and it was lovely. The hot stone massages we had were fabulous and the meal in the brassiere was very tasty.
