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 booked two suites, for us and another couple. This is a beautiful former family home and now a grand hotel. The rooms were spacious and the service was very friendly . We enjoyed the golf and the spa facilities, plus an enjoyable evening meal. This place is nice but it has the potential to be something very special.. It needs more money spending on the rooms, cleaning, golf shop and spa. The setting is stunning with views and grounds to admire. It just needs a little more tender care and a heap load of cash spending on it. It is definitely worth a visit.
On booking our room we asked for an early check in as we were travelling from Devon to attend a 2pm wedding at the hotel (check in is 3pm) We reiterated this on the morning of the wedding .. we were told they would try !! On arrival a weary receptionist told us we could use the disabled toilet !!! as our room wouldn’t be ready ... we were appalled at the offer but didn’t create a fuss as we didn’t want it to impede on the wedding party at all , another guest offered us their room as they’d managed to get an earlier check in time !!! Again we didn’t know the people so kindly turned down their offer. Our room was tired , the bathroom needed updating and the towels had marks on them !! Breakfast was undercooked ... ! Sad to say we found you under par , not a match for our local Bovey Castle in Devon ... !!!
Just returned from a 2 night stay with my husband and 18 year old son. We loved everything about this hotel. The setting is stunning, the building full of style and character, and the service from every member of staff was superb.
The boys really enjoyed the beautiful golf course as well as a clay pigeon shooting session and I had an excellent massage in the spa.
This really is the perfect hotel for a relaxing break, and we hope to return with the whole family to stay in one of their cottages sometime soon.

Just returned from a memorable stay at Stapleford Park where 26 golfing girls celebrated the milestone birthday of one of our very special ladies. The hotel was a perfect venue and looked glorious in the bright May sunshine. The staff were first class and did everything possible to make our stay a success. The comfortable rooms were all very different and some very imaginatively decorated. The food was excellent. The golf course rather long and flat but we grew to rather like it after 3 rounds, and the bucolic views, complete with serenading cuckoo, made it very special. The stairs to the third floor were a challenge after a round of golf but there is an ancient lift if you really don’t have the strength! We swam in the lovely indoor pool which has been cleverly integrated into the old building. There was croquet and boules on the lawn if you have the energy after a round of golf. Thank you to all the lovely staff who made our stay so enjoyable.
