            It is an old, pretty building set on a river in a very scenic location

            The restaurant is recommended and has won a few awards, thus food is expensive and rather haute cuisine than "British". Meaning the portions are the size of a French child's meal. The room was rather disapointing. Completely new bed, TV, DVD, bathroom etc. but it had an overall used and old feeling (not cosy). It felt like someone removed all old items from my grandma's room and replaced them with new things. Very small windows, no WIFI. The room was also not in the main building but outside. Since it was raining the whole time, I got wet on way for dinner and breakfast...

            I was quite surprised how lovely a setting it was and so close to East Midlands Airport-a hidden gem.

            The thoughtfulness, and kindness shown even prior to us arriving. We was extremely greatful and shocked that we'd had our room upgraded because we was celebrating our albeit short but happy honeymoon. I had a vision of how our night should be, and the Priest House definitely fulfilled that. Thank you also for the gift of champagne and strawberries! Our dinner was outstanding also. We would not hesitate to recommend you to friends, we actually have not stopped talking about you since our return. A thousand thanks, Mr. and Mrs. Beardsley.

            The location was beautiful and the rooms in the house were lovely, great stay only wish we had longer!

            the location was ideal for what we wanted, and the staff were friendly and helpful. the grounds of the hotel were lovely and very picturesque.

            we found the room very small, and expensive for what we got. the room was not as clean as we would have liked and there were cobwebs on the curtain rails that had obviously been there a long time.

            I liked the setting the best. The Hotel was situated in a very beautiful part of Leicestershire.

            A small point butI felt that the room was very warm and would have prefered not to have the heating on through the night.

            lovely comfortable rooms, fabulous food and beautiful surroundings. the staff were really attentive and friendly.

            would be great if it could have a pool/spa

            9.2

            Unique combination of traditional and modern. Staff generally excellent and welcoming.

            Peaceful setting was compromised by large and boisterous wedding party into the early hours. Also limited access to some parts of the hotel.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Beautiful location, very helpful and friendly staff. Cottage room very comfortable and quiet.

            We stayed on a Saturday night and there was a wedding party who rather monopolised the outside bar seating area. Noise from evening function was minimal thoughh so not too intrusive.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            I love the setting on the river and the pleasant ambience and staff. The room was very nice and quiet as requested and the food was excellent.

            The buffet breakfast was cold when we got to it and there was only lump sugar when I got cereal so had to wait for some to be brought.
