    We got married here just over a week ago. We honestly can’t speak highly enough of the venue. As soon as we saw it we knew we wanted to get married here, especially as we wanted an outdoor wedding and this offered us the perfect setting. The day certainly didn’t disappoint either. All the staff there were lovely and a pleasure to deal with. We would recommend this place to anyone

    We booked a stay for our second anniversary, we booked a suite which appeared to have either a bath or a sauna. We couldn’t decide between two hotels as both had baths but the views of the country side at this hotel swayed us, I called prior to making the online booking to check that the room had a bath and the lady I spoke to confirmed if we booked a suite we would have a bath. We checked in and went straight to our room to find it was a shower not a bath, went straight back to reception to inform them we’d booked a suite with a bath and this had been confirmed over the phone to be told there was nothing that could be done because the hotel was full due to a wedding and was told to complain on check out as they could do something then. We watched the football, got changed had a wander round the local area and returned for a meal at the hotel. The website states meals are served in the conservatory but when we asked to be shown to the restaurant we were taken to a lounge we had watched football in during the day, although the lounge was lovely for the football the setting wasn’t right for a sit down meal. There wasn’t much choice within the immediate area to go elsewhere so we opted to eat in the hotel, we ordered pizza and fries because if we’d have ordered anything else it would have meant eating with our plates on our knees which is not really what we had in mind when booking, we wanted a romantic night away with a nice meal. We were very disappointed with our stay, we explained this on check out and the lady was apologetic and gave us the drinks on our bill for free (£18.00). We also met a couple during our stay who’d been put in a suite with a bath, didn’t use the bath and didn’t want the bath they wanted a shower if we’d have all known this to start with perhaps we could have swapped rooms. If we’d have known at the point of booking that the room didn’t have a bath and we wouldn’t have been able to eat in the restaurant we would have booked elsewhere. On a brighter note the staff were really lovely and welcoming and were a credit to the hotel and the view from the room was amazing.

    We had a lovely stay at the Mackenay Hall Hotel. We booked the Stutt Suite and were not disappointed in anything. The room was very clean, the bed was super comfortable, and the extra touch of a fan in the room was welcome. We loved using the private sauna, bathrobes, balcony, huge bathtub, and private entrance up a romantic spiral staircase. The staff were incredibly attentive to our allergy requirements at the nicely presented and tasty hot breakfast. They kindly provided us an individual pot of decaf coffee, oat milk, and asked the kitchen staff when we had questions about the ingredients of the breakfast foods. The house is gorgeous, the grounds were beautiful. Overall, we had a fantastic stay. We will definitely book to stay again in future. Thank you for a your kind and considerate service, staff members!

    My husband and I had a very comfortable stay at Makeney, we were there to celebrate the wedding of Sue and Bill. We had not stayed with you before but would love to come again. The bedroom was very comfortable, we had a lovely view across towards the gardens. The breakfast was good, with a good choice. The staff were friendly, very pleasant and helpful. Thank you for helping us to have a relaxing stay.

    The rooms were very tatty and dated, I know it's an old building but the rooms felt like the last time they saw any new paint or repairs was pre smartphone or even longer. On the other hand the staff were fantastic and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. So they definitely made the stay much better than it could have been. The bar and food prices were reasonable. I doubt very much I would stay there again as I'm sure there are better options out there.
