You’ll find lots of great places to explore in the surrounding countryside.
Holme Lacy, one of the group of Warner Break hotels for adults only. As usual an old run down property from a very different era given a new life and use by Warner. Sure, the format is the same in them all but then that's the consistency you want isn't it? The food was brilliant and all commendation to the chefs. Our accommodation was clean, tidy and fresh. Entertainment wasn't our thing this time but that's more a taste matter, there was nothing wrong with it. The grounds are beautiful and reasonably extensive, another commendation to the gardeners. Beyond the hotel with a little travel there is plenty to see on the three or four day break. It is a fair travel for us but we would certainly go again.
We are normally independent Travellers but after suggestions from friends decided to join them on a 3 Night weekend Break at Holme Lacy. The Hotel is set in it's own grounds and looks stunning. We were allocated Room 335 on the second floor near the pavilion, which appeared to have been updated and well appointed. The room and bathroom were spotless. The restaurant was huge so forget intimacy. the food for mass catering was very good and the serving staff very good. The activity staff ( all young ) were polite and very helpful makes a change in this day and age. The autumn weather was kind to us so we were able to explore the grounds with suggested walks ( Info from reception), took advantage of the putting greens and enjoyed the Air Rifle experience. The only drawback being my wife beat me hands down and discovered a new skill lol. The indoor pool was a good size, this is where we encoutered a few problems. The hot tub was the same temp as the pool, the steam room was out of order and the changing rooms ( male & female ) were messy, no bags for trunks and no soap in the dispenser. The evening entertainment was average no big names, mainly provided by the Entertainment Crew but still enjoyable. Considering the captive audience the drinks prices's were reasonable. In conclusion we had a great stay with plenty to do both day and night okay the age range of the guests was middle age and up BUT an 80+ lady was always first up dancing and always last off Lol. Will we be back? YES ! Already looking at the other venues in the group.
