We went to a friends wedding and it was absolutely stunning the staff were friendly and the food was excellent the hotel was beautiful with the two big orniemental fish ponds and the views would recommend it

Stayed for a few nights earlier in August to celebrate our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. All the staff were lovely, our room was great and the food was excellent.We had a bed, breakfast and dinner package and really enjoyed the food in the Armada restaurant each evening. Small indoor pool but if the weather's good the outdoor heated pool was a lovely place to relax for a few hours and the grounds are beautiful. We hope to return!

Shocking afternoon tea. Im a chef so am fully aware of what goes into a good afternoon tea, every sweet item on the tea is store bought in. The sweet pastry tartlet was soggy and so small and just filled with cream and badly cut fruit. Then given a huge slab of cake, compared to the other 3 sweet items just looked ridiculous on the plate. Had no decoration or care put into it. Scones were heavy and borderline edible. FOH clearly need some training. For what your paying you would at least expect the chefs to be able to make a few simple but elegant looking sweets and not buy it all in. Sandwiches were disgraceful, barely any filling and dry. I walked by the open kitchen and could see the tray of sandwiches just left out open and uncovered, when I walked past again 30 mins later they were still there! Be aware that if you are having afternoon tea here all your sweets are frozen brought in products and not handmade. I hope this matter gets dealt with as it's not fair on customers paying such a high price for their afternoon tea experience

We celebrated a family wedding here in July. The building and grounds are stunning; even though it rained and we had to move indoors for the ceremony, I think the wedding was actually better in the grand hall. The wedding breakfast and evening reception were excellently managed and the hospitality team led by Andrew were incredibly hard working and gracious - they must have been exhausted. We had an executive room; bit of a trek through the hotel maze but well worth it. Secluded with lots of floor to ceiling windows looking out into the woods. TV in the bathroom, separate shower. Beds very comfortable. We would like to come back for another visit to fully enjoy the facilities. Only one criticism really was the breakfast; not much choice, not kept topped up and after a complaint, the top up wasn't really cooked through. We were intending to take this up but, rather inappropriately, one of our guests took it upon herself to vigorously complain first. I felt a bit embarrassed about that, so apologies to Andrew for having to deal with that. All in all I can wholeheartedly recommend a visit.

We stayed overnight on a Sunday in August. The staff were very helpful and had left us a small treat of chocolates and strawberries for our 10th wedding anniversary. We had cream tea on arrival and an excellent evening meal with some delicious fish dishes in the Alhambra room. The facilities were all included and the indoor pool was particularly relaxing. Breakfast was more than enough the nect day and it felt as though the staff wanted us to stay longer. I would recommend a cosy visit in the winter too as I know the forest is even more beautiful at that time. We will probably pop back for a meal or drink in the lounge area before long. Amazing setting and any comments about staff not being helpful are totally unfounded. Can't wait to go back.

The hotel is set in a beautiful part of the new forest away from the hustle and bustle of nearby visitors. We had a Sunday lunch to celebrate my fiancees birthday and the staff went out of their way to make it memorable for all the right reasons. The dining room was beautiful and a joy to dine in, tue food was prepared with care ant the attention to detail was outstanding. Being a foodie i really appreciated the quality of the ingredients and the effort put in by the team to ensure we had a wonderful meal. After lunch we had a walk through the grounds of the hotel followed by a relaxing drink. Would i recommend the hotel "yes" It was a joy to find an i look forward to visiting again in the near future.

Bills itself as the "Jewell in the Forest" and lives up to that as far as I'm concerned. Despite other reviews complaining about service we had top notch service from every single memeber of staff we dealt with or who even walked past us in the hotel; unfailingly polite and friendly (without being over familiar). In my view whilst the buck stops with the General Manager so the tone of the whole hotel starts with that as well. The irrepressible positive nature of the GM is reflected in the staff's attitude and we enjoyed it. I can only comment on the Executive rooms and ours was first rate, good size, good facilities and in a very good part of the hotel. Would stay again.

We hired the Hurst castle suite. The room was perfect for the access and looked lovely. We had elderly and disabled family with us for the 90th birthday celebration. Everything was perfect The food was stunning, the staff were very attentive and we couldn't have asked for better We are all very appreciative that this party went so well Please pass on our thanks to all the chefs, and hotel staff involved.

My husband and I married at the stunning Rhinefield House Hotel this weekend and what an experience we had. Set in the middle of the forest with stunning grounds and historic buildings, this is a venue my couples would idolise for their wedding day. All we can say is don't hesitate to book it! The staff make this place a truly special place to be. Andrew our events manager ( included in your package) couldn't have done more to make our day special, he is what turned our day into a unique experience. Guests felt welcomed and cared for throughly their stay. They couldn't do enough for you. We can honestly say it was the best day of our lives and we can't thank the staff at Rhinefield enough for their superb efforts. Mr and Mrs Jewell

Large well equipped bedroom - good variety of drinks, good shower and bathroom with additional TV if you like a soak in the bath. Also very good shower. Quiet and private looking onto woodland. Good evening meal, included in the stay. Breakfast could have been better. Outside swimming pool was not open and indoor pool very small. I prefer a good quality older hotel with grounds for a walk and good evening meal , and this hotel fitted the bill.
