Stayed here for a wedding. I’ve been to many luxury estates, but to date this is the most superior experience. Love my night there. Luxury, plus quaint is the experience in the original mansion. Definitely be back !

This is a lovely hotel with a great outdoor space. It also hosts big golf courts.
We had afternoon tea, cakes and sandwiches were delicious.
Staff respect distances and health measures due to Covid.
I highly recommend it. I will be back for their Michelin star restaurant.

"Beautiful Hotel"
Only had one night here, but what a gorgeous resort. Service was impeccable - from the moment you check in. We stayed in the Manor House portion of the hotel, and were upgraded to a Riverview King room overlooking the River Nore. Had dinner at The Hound restaurant (while they have a lovely restaurant in the Manor House, we were looking for something more casual) on the property (but next door at their other hotel), and then drinks at The Major's Bar after. All in all a wonderful, but short, visit. I would highly recommend it for those looking for a little bit of pampering.

A beautiful property
We enjoyed our stay at Mt. Juliet, although I didn't get to play golf. Service was very good, and our room was very nice. The manor is in a beautiful park-like setting with huge trees and some nice gardens. The golf course borders the main area grounds. Our dinner in the casual dining room (The Hound) was only average, but in a very nice room with a great view of the course and hills beyond.

One thing you can say about this place is the outstanding beauty of the grounds. Wether you want to take in a round of golf , or just the pleasure of walking round , then pop in for something to eat and drink . Just the peace and quiet it's definitely worth a visit

"Relaxing idyllic location"
Fabulous relaxing location to celebrate a special occasion . Interconnecting rooms opening onto enclosed garden was ideal for family group . Dinner at Hunters yard restaurant offered a lovely casual relaxed environment as an alternative option to the more formal surroundings of Lady Helen restaurant at the manor itself . However breakfast there was super . Bar food at golf club bar was overpriced . Staff were very co operative welcoming & friendly at all times .

Surpassed Expectations - which were already high
Honestly, every element of our stay surpassed our expectations. From the idyllic setting in the most fabulous parkland setting, through to the genuine welcome from the reception staff - all were outstanding.

The rooms in Hunters Yard are exceptional, comfortable and very large.

The food in the Saddle Restaurant for both breakfast and for dinner one evening is outstanding.

Golf course is wonderful - challenging and a bit long for higher handicap golfers but wonderful all the same.

Will definitely be returning and will recommend highly.
