More country than Country Life, historic Stapleford Park is one of the finest stately houses around. Many hotels can lay claim to an air of aristocratic grandeur or creaking olde-worlde charm, but few could match the character of this sprawling Leicestershire pile. With maze-like gardens, a resident falconer, croquet, pentanque and even a few woolly sheep grazing in the grounds, this landmark property is the perfect English escape.
In addition to its high-ceilinged rooms, open fires and antique furnishings, Stapleford Park boasts a championship 18-hole golf course and an award-winning spa located in the old Victorian stable block, just a short stroll from the hotel’s heated indoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. A destination for dining too, the hotel features a genteel restaurant awarded two AA Rosettes, where guests might dine on aged beef and British cheeses.
How to Get There
We went to a friends wedding here.
The venue is wonderful. The entrance to the hotel is stunning.
The wedding was amazing, this was in part the venue, the staff and of course the bride and groom’s input to their wedding.
We we booked in and were taken to our room by a very charming lady.
The attention to detail for the wedding was again stunning.
Our meal was wonderful. There must have been 140 people there and the food was brought out together for each table. Cooked to perfection in my worthless opinion.
The bedroom is what you should expect from what I would describe as a stately home. *don’t know what I am talking about.
As silly as it sounds, my girlfriend was amazed by the bathroom in what might be lobby. She was talking to another guest and they didn’t want to leave lol.
Lovely big bed. Turn down service was unexpected. Complementary sloe gin in the room was a nice touch.
Suffice to say it was a very late night. The bar stayed open in what was like a library.
Breakfast was very nice. Staff again were brilliant.
It isn’t cheap, but it is a wonderful experience.
We all had a brilliant time.
We were made to feel very special.
Just had a really lovely time at Stapleford Park with friends.
A fantastic setting and house and nothing was too much effort for the staff.
Room was large and airy with complimentary sloe gin! Result!! I would however, recommend that they put a nespresso machine in rooms not just a kettle.
We used the pool, leisure facilities and tennis and my wife had a massage all very good indeed.
Food in the evening was excellent - I had squab pigeon and lamb both excellent and my wife had crab followed by chicken; again very good. We were a party of 8 and all of us were happy with food and service.
It is quite expensive but I would say worth it for a special occasion.
We would go again as had a lovely time.
Booked in for afternoon tea as a birthday treat for my wife. She had been given a voucher as birthday present. Lovely welcome at Reception and we were showed into the Lounge where a table had been set up for two. Menus and a birthday card were already set up and we had a very pleasant tea. Chose the White Tea from an extensive collection of teas and had finger sandwiches on a variety of bread. There was a Vegetarian option but we had Salmon, Ham, Chicken and Egg. Two types of Scone each with Jam and Cream and to finish a selection of delicate light cakes. We had three cakes left over which were boxed up for us to take away. Lovely Lounge area with lovely antiques and flower arrangements and the Service was excellent.
A lovely setting with sheep roaming the adjacent fields, lovely (but not spectacular) gardens, boules, croquet and tennis plus an indoor swimming pool. The food is nice, smallish portions and a traditional menu with 5 or 6 starter and main choices.
The rooms are very comfortable. We had our 2 small dogs with us and the hotel provided dog beds, bowls and a couple of treats for them both.
The beds are wonderfully comfortable. The bathroom was a little tired but the shower worked and considering we were on the top floor of the main house, that was a good result. With such beautiful weather our room was a little on the toasty side but they provided a fan so couldn’t complain.
All in all, we spent a lovely evening at Stapleford. Was it the most luxurious place I’ve ever stayed? No. Was it the best quality food? No. But it was a relaxing experience and they were dog friendly so I’d definitely go again.
We stayed at this hotel on our wedding night and were extremely impressed. Despite arriving late, the staff were expecting our arrival and really looked after us. As it was our wedding night we were upgraded which was very much appreciated. We look forward to returning here on future wedding anniversaries.
