"Wonderful weekend. Great hotel with fantastic food."
We were in Ludlow for the food festival. By sheer good luck my husband found Old Downton Lodge on the Internet and booked a two night stay. The rural setting was beautiful. The room and facilities were great. All the staff were friendly and attentive. However the real high point of our stay was the food. There is an amazing chef whose food is stunning. We had one of the taster menus and every course was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend Old Downton Lodge and hope to return soon. Read less

"A second stay, even better than the first"
We were very well looked after. Our host made sure that we would be properly fed, even though the Ludlow Food Festival visitors were filling up all the restaurants round and about. Even on Sunday, when the hotel restaurant closes, there was a plate of cold food available.

The Tesla charger was a bonus. Read less

Likes:
The surroundings were beautiful - both the surrounding countryside and the hotel/ grounds. The teabags provided in the rooms were so good that we took a few home. Dinner couldn't have been nicer.
Dislikes:
The bathrooms were nice enough,and were clean and well equipped, however we felt that they did not quite measure up to the rest of the experience in terms of style/decoration.

It would have been helpful to understand the tipping system from the start. It was only on our second evening that I discovered I would have the chance to add a tip when checking out.
Response from Old Downton Lodge:
Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. You are so right we have great staff and they really make a difference. I am addressing the gratuity issue as you are 100% correct. Many thanks for leaving a tip and I can assure you it gets divided equally amongst all the staff that work at Old Downton Lodge. They do all the hard work and deserve it. Hope to see you back soon.

The welcome, friendliness of the staff, and of course the food! The beautiful garden with sitting areas.
Dislikes:
Myh husband would have liked a mat on the floor by his bed. Stepping on to cold flagstones was chilly! A small side table for my bouquet of flowers would have been nice. Room 7.
Response from Old Downton Lodge:
Dear Barry, Many thanks for taking the time to right a review, it is very helpful. Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay here at Old Downton Lodge and so glad you enjoyed Karl's cooking. You are so right about the flooring and we have now sorted this out. We hope to see you again soon thank you Hannah.
