Very nice hotel. Friendly staff, very comfy well set out rooms. Good food served. In the middle of beautiful country side with a huge golf course.
Our stay was amazing! A beautifully presented mansion house, with amazing staff members. They made us feel so very comfortable and treated us more like family members rather than guests [...] delicious soup and cake! [...] Highly recommended and I will be booking a corporate event with them soon. Impressed would be an understatement! Well done guys!
This is my second stay at the Wokefield Estate both visits were as part of a good couple hundred group (at least!) as the company I work for held its annual conference there this year and last. The suite I had was lovely, walk in shower, large bed, comfy sofas and plenty of room. The staff were on point [...] all the staff are assets to the hotel. To stay at this hotel is a luxury anyway due to the surroundings but the experience is heightened by the staff. Thank you for the lovely stay.
