We took our small dog who was welcomed with open arms and were given a stunning room with a lovely 4 poster bed. Room was air conditioned so no uncomfortable temperatures. There are options to book massage, but we did not have time on this occasion to take advantage of this. We are both foodies so decided on the 7 dish taster menu - some phenomenal dishes and all just the right size. On arrival we had delicious homemade scones with coffee and the breakfast the next day was also fab. The gardens are lovely and well maintained and perfect for an evening stroll with pre- dinner drinks. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a couples break. We are from Dorset so rural location was a home from home, but what stood out was the excellent level of service; anything we needed wasn't too much for the team. I don't have any negative points or criticism at all as this was a delightful hotel with excellent hospitality. We will definitely be returning to Esseborne! More...

Fabulous venue especially for a Wedding, 21 family and friends met for Canapés, drinks and delicious Dinner before my Daughters Wedding on the 26th January. The Essebourne Team made sure the event ran so seamlessly, they dealt with the timings, the ceremony was beautiful followed by more delicious Canapés served at the Champagne Reception, followed another delicious Dinner catering for all tastes. They had raised the bar for the buffet later in the evening, a great variety of food. The food throughout the week end was exceptional. The staff helpful, friendly and professional, nothing was too much trouble.

The hotel is a lovely getaway from it all and has lots of little rooms for guests to escape. This is for people who want to escape from the rat race and enjoy top notch food and drink but not pay stupid prices! There is no gym, no pool and no TV (well there is but it’s hidden!).This was my second stay and I have to say It was even better than the first. When you dine you need to go for the seven course taster menu which was delicious! (Please see photos)The rooms are all beautiful and clean and each one has its own theme. We stayed in St Albans which had a four poster bed, on suite and ice cold prosecco with chocolates on arrival. Our friends were in Arundel and previously we stayed in Richmond. Other room names were Kensington N and Kensington S to name but a few. The staff are all so friendly, efficient and well mannered. There is lots of parking too on several gravel car parks or underneath well established beautiful trees. There is a giant chess set on the grounds and a lovely garden to walk around where you can sit on wooden benches under the trees.

Small 'complaints' are that they don't do cocktails here though they have the ingredients for them & one member of staff a bit abrupt when we were exploring due to a bit if a lack if signage/welcome 'tour'.

Just love this place for the restaurant. Fabulous. Dined here a few times now and never been disappointed. Very Nouvelle Cuisine in style. We had the dinner menu which consisted of 5 courses, with alternatives offered on each course, of exquisitely tasting and well presented food. The sort of place to go when you want you or you guests to feel special. More...

Just left Essebourne after 2 lovely nights, excellent 7 course taster meal the first night and equally superb meal on second night. The homemade biscuits in our room and the afternoon tea scones were delicious. The food and the staff could not have been any better. Highly recommended. More...

Wonderful place! The food was top class, and for a modest price too. The only complaint would be the wifi connection, which was basically non-existent. But overall a place that stands out and that I would like to return to. More...

Great setting. Really nice room with homemade biscuits and a bottle of water in the room. Lovely homemade scones with tea. The 7 course taster dinner was really nice. The wine flight for me was not the best so next time I'll just get a bottle I like. Breakfast was really nice. The only downside for my wife and I was the bed. Good size but just to soft so didn't get the best nights sleep. More...

I stayed here for 1 night with my wife in the 'Plymouth' room, which was a beautiful room and very spacious with a 'huge' bathroom and very tastefully furnished. We had the Cream Tea in the afternoon with homemade scones and Jam which was absolutely delicious and the 7 course tasting menu for dinner, which was fantastic! ( I highly recommend the wine tasting menu with it as well ! ) and the breakfast was absolutely amazing. A fantastic stay, we wished we had booked 2 nights instead of one. Thank you to the hotel team who are very welcoming and attentive. We highly recommend this wonderful hotel More...
