Positive Reviews

More like a four star hotel

Quite a number of visitors have compared Pontlands Park to many upscale four star hotels, and believe that the top quality service, professional staff and wonderful amenities put this hotel in a higher bracket. Almost all guests reported a magnificent stay, especially after using the spa facilities.

Lovely country atmosphere

From the moment you open the door of your vehicle, you can smell the fresh country air. Most visitors say that is what keeps them coming back every year. The surroundings are conducive to a relaxed environment, and guests begin to unwind after the first five minutes.

Beautiful features

Some particular features stood out for many visitors, like the huge front door, with its awesome design, and the wooden mirror in the entrance. Others commented on the ornate windows and stained glass panes as their favourite features. It will be a feast for the eyes.

Negative Reviews

Can be uncomfortably hot

There have been a few complaints because of the fact that there are no air-conditioning units in the rooms at Pontlands Park. The days do sometimes become unbearably hot, and visitors have simply opened the windows to get the air flowing through.

Deluxe room not too great

If you are one of those guests who paid for a deluxe room and were a little disappointed, you are not alone. Other guests also reported feeling like there were a few luxury items missing like bottled water, no slippers and no dressing gown.
