Likes:
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.

We stayed for two nights, one day hiking and the second day mountain biking in Hopton Woods nearby. We booked in for the 6 course tasting menu for both nights, and staff made sure we had an entirely different menu each night. Read less
Likes:
We arrived much too early, and from the start everyone at Downton Lodge was super-helpful and friendly, and we were able to settle in to our lovely room. Food and wine both stunning,a lovely place.
Dislikes:
No, everything was excellent, and although very classy, not the slightest bit stuffy
Response from Old Downton Lodge:
Dear Bob, Many thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed you stay. Hope you will return when the weather is better. The team at Old Downton Lodge appreciate these great reviews as all their hard work is appreciated. Hope you enjoy the cook books. Kind Regards Willem Vlok

Likes:
Very friendly staff.
Excellent 6-course meal.
Very varied and top quality breakfast.
The whole building has been very tastefully converted and decorated.
Remote location means zero traffic noise.
Dislikes:
No stand-alone shower in 4-poster room meaning a flooded bathroom using the bath attachment! Tiled floor perhaps a bit chilly in Winter! The night we stayed was extremely cold but very good heating.

Likes:
The food was outstanding (why no Michelin star?) and having tried the tasting menu, the wines chosen as Sommelier recommendation for each course were just perfect. Breakfasts were very tasty indeed
Dislikes:
More a comment, the latches on the bathroom door were a trifle noisy for a midnight loo visit without waking the other half!
Response from Old Downton Lodge:
Many thanks for the great review. Really happy you enjoyed your stay. The team at Old Downton Lodge really appreciate the great feedback and I have to say they are a great team. You are right about the latches and I will look into it. Hope to see you back soon. Kind Regards Willem

"A study in getting things right"
Stopped as a diversion on a trip back from a business meeting in Manchester looking for a night of good food in a pleasant environment and it would be fair to say we more than met this target. The Old Lodge shows just how an eye of the detail can make a stay really pleasurable form the cheerful welcome, actually by the owner, to wonderful rooms and brilliant food. The locality is blissfully off the beaten track from carefully navigating the pheasants on the road in and just being so peaceful. Read less
Likes:
The quality of the room was excellent, a beautifully restored set of farm building with well thought out design features. The meal and wine were definitely as tasty as previously reported.
Dislikes:
Leaving?
Response from Old Downton Lodge:
Thank you so much Janet. Really glad you had a good stay and I can truly say we are so blessed to have such a great team at Old Downton Lodge. Hope you are able to return in the near future. Kind Regards Willem
