Positive Reviews

The spa is fantastic.

Nothing makes a holiday better than a spa treatment. It is so relaxing to be able to immerse yourself in a spa day and then just stroll on back to your room. Sopwell House that, the indoor pool, sauna, steam and Jacuzzi and you keep that relaxed throughout your stay. .

The food is wonderful.

The food at Sopwell House is wonderful, and there are several places in the hotel to dine or relax with a cocktail at the end of a long day of meetings or sightseeing.

The staff gives you personal attention.

The knowledgeable staff is warm and attentive, giving you the kind of service that will make your stay a special one. They are happy to accommodate most any request and point you in the direction of local eateries, entertainments and attractions.

Negative Reviews

No pets allowed.

Other than service animals, Sopwell House does not allow pets. This is unfortunate for those who like to travel with their favoutrite canine companions.

The service can be slow in the restaurant.

The service can be slow in bit the restaurant and bar, especially at breakfast when things can get a bit crowded and hectic. Rest assured however, that once you are seated and served, you’ll really enjoy the food.

The hotel is mod-facelift.

Although some of the guest rooms have recently been updated, many have not, and these rooms are showing their wear. Dated furnishings, worn carpet and a terrible mouldy smell in some rooms will leave you asking to be moved to a refurbished room. To save yourself this trouble, be sure to request a newly done room when you check in.
