  • Fantastic| Sopwell House

    May 2018

    Leon A, TripAdvisor:

    Really enjoyed our 1 night stay at Sopwell house .We only stayed in a superior room but it was very nice and clean .Spent most of the time enjoying the facilities at hand .The conservatory and gardens were lovely place to enjoy the beautiful weather ,gym was ok for a hotel gym and the spa was really nice even though there was a notice saying it will be closed in August as they are redeveloping this area it make it bigger .We only ate in the Brasserie and the food was ok ,nothing amazing but still quite nice .The cocktail bar area was a great place to relax with their comfy sofas and armchairs .
    The main thing which made our stay was the staff ,they were amazing !from our 1st interaction at reception through to when we left.It was the little things like the card and macaroons in our room on arrival and the head waiter asking my wife the morning after how her dinner was and remember exactly what we both had for dinner !i like stuff like that !
    Overall the staff go out there way to be super friendly and attentive and made our stay really really nice !
    Looking forward to the next visit

  • 2018 New Year's Eve Ball | Sopwell House

    Dec 2017

    MacZ, TripAdvisor: I don't normally write reviews, but the New Year's Eve event at Sopwell House was such a splendid night which far exceeded my expectations that I felt I needed to share my experience. The staff were so professional, friendly, and hospitable and they really made our stay special.

    The whole event was organised to perfection which is a testament to the management team as I couldn't find anything to fault. I have attended many 5 star hotel New Year's Eve events but none of them come close to the joyful atmosphere and quality of service at Sopwell House. I will definitely return and recommend this hotel to anyone who appreciates good service with a smile.

  • Great Place, Brilliant Treatment, Comfy Bed | Sopwell House

    Jan 2018

    KTq88, TripAdvisor: Second time at Sopwell House, this time in a bring a friend deal. Great value £199 for two people to stay in a lovely double room, very comfy bed, 50 minute treatment each, and use of the spa from 3pm on day of arrival.

    We went on Friday night, the hot stone massage was amazing. The pool was quiet and very relaxing. Staff at breakfast were friendly too. Will definitely be returning.
