    We had dinner in Great Foster’s one evening in early May. Couldn’t afford the Michelin one to be honest so went for the Estate Grill restaurant. It was impeccable! Although we were one of only 3 tables I believe. Not full or busy. So we had a great experience with the staff there. I think some were training but it was all good. People got to start somewhere right? And they were all very kind, attentive without being intrusive. Proper silver service! And the manager, Daniel is superb!! Can’t fault the service. The food was so delicious as well. Can’t choose a favourite because they were all equally excellent! It was a special night out for my son and they accommodated us which is much much appreciated. We would definitely come back again. It is so thoroughly recommended. Thank you for the great service and food. Well worth the money.

    A classy, high-end, experience. I've only been twice, so I don't claim expert knowledge of this large establishment. And I don't know anything about the hotel or spa sides. But the restaurant, the building, and the gardens are wonderful. This historic, ornate and interesting building seems to be made up of a series of different spaces, all interesting, individually decorated and arranged ("curated" world be a good word here). Each space is lovelier, more interesting, and more surprising, than the last! Varied paintings everywhere, unusual finished and historic elements (some are centuries old). Very clever. The staff were brilliant. Thoughtful, responsive, unobtrusive and efficient - everything you can ask for, really. And the food was very good. Maybe not "excellent" but very good and worth going back for again. Finally, the extensive gardens are a real USP. Beautifully maintained (as is the interior of the buildings), interesting to wander around after a nice lunch, and impressive. EDIT: Great Fosters includes is restaurant called Estate Grill, and a Michelin starred restaurant called Tudor Pass. The above review is about Estate Grill.

    Absolutely stunning. I was here for an event and the grounds the service the atmosphere and the tranquility really hit home as her versatile and beautiful this venue is. The gardens were my favourite the food wasn't my favourite part but overall it was a beautiful experience and I shall be back to stay over and use the Fabulous swimming pool hopefully!

    We had two nights at the Great Fosters. Great historical building with some very nice rooms. We got to stay at the Italian suite which was one of the nicest (and weirdest) rooms I've ever stayed in. Felt like a king. Strongly recommended for a British experience. Great service from Jake at the bar and Emma (and everyone else) at the reception. Pros: Warmed pool and jacuzzi were very nice - even in the rain. Great garden Well kept rooms Historical Good service Cons: Food at the bar was worse than average and the other restaurant (not the Michelin one) was okay but was expecting more for the price.

    Unfortunately, our experience at the Great Fosters hotel fell short of expectations. Right from the start, we encountered issues with the service. The front desk staff came across as impolite when we inquired about our room's readiness upon arrival. This lack of professionalism set an unwelcoming tone. The problems continued during our meals. At lunch, we were dismayed to find that the fish dish was severely undercooked and nearly raw. While mistakes can happen, the staff seemed ill-equipped to handle the situation, appearing flustered and unsure of how to rectify the error. Many of the service staff also struck us as quite young and potentially lacking sufficient training or experience for a hotel promoted as luxurious. Adding to the disappointment was the apparent absence of management oversight. We struggled to find any supervisory presence to address our concerns effectively. Even simple requests, like obtaining poolside service, required multiple trips inside to seek assistance from staff, disrupting our ability to relax. The breakfast spread also left much to be desired. Rather than an impressive selection befitting a 5-star property, we were presented with a meager offering of what appeared to be basic croissants, likely sourced from an ordinary grocery store. This lacklustre meal did little to salvage our overall experience. While the Great Fosters hotel may be marketed as a 5-star establishment, our stay felt more akin to a 3-star rating based on the lack of attentive service, operational missteps, and uninspired dining options. Regrettably, our time there failed to meet the standards of luxury one would reasonably expect from the advertised calibre of the hotel.
