Historical Traveler Reviews Lucknam Park Colerne
A group of us stayed at Lucknam Park for a friend's hen weekend (we wanted pampering and lovely surroundings by day and an easy route into Bath for the evening). From the moment I arrived and the door was held for me and my bags taken, the service was impeccable. We were each individually escorted to our rooms, which were all lovely and individually decorated. The pool and spa facilities are excellent and we paid for the hen to have a massage, which she reported was wonderful. The hotel is in a huge country estate with a mile long driveway, lovely setting for a morning walk.
We were all left belgian chocolates and fruit in our rooms as well as still and sparkling water, and the hen was left a demi bottle of champagne to celebrate her impending marriage. There was an evening turndown service, which was very welcome when we returned from our night out in Bath (which is a great city for a night out - lovely restaurants and some great bars, and we really enjoyed the private members nightclub, the Blue Rooms that we went to) and breakfast in the morning was delicious, with an excellent spread of continental breakfast foods and a variety of hot food made to order (including the obligatory full English, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, pancakes with bacon and maple syrup...).
All in all excellent service, very polite and helpful staff and a beautiful place to stay.
Excellent birthday weekend
Celebrated my 40th at Lucknam after reading the reviews. Wanted luxury without stuffiness. The staff were excellent and the hotel superb.Quality of room very good and Spa facilities good. Food excellent.
Quite pricey but found a good deal on laterooms.Definitely recommended for a romantic getaway.Very welcoming and magnificent mansion house decor-chandeliers open fireplaces,wood panelling and all looking very clean and pristine.
Older clientelle and bar was in the library where you are served with drinks in armchairs in front of log fire.
Minor drawback on day 1 jacuzzi cool and day 2 steam room not working however did not detract from a great weekend.
We staryed at Lucknam Park hotel for my birthday and had a fantastic time.
You are greeted on arrival and shown around the hotel and then escored to your room, by this time our bags and coasts were already taken up.
We were upgraded to the Tower room, which was big and beautiful, with stunning views over the countryside.
The staff are extremely well trained and are genuinly interested in their guests - nothing was too much trouble and they all seemed to know our names.
You can hire mountain bikes or use the pool and spa facilities as we did.
Dinner was fantastic as was our full English breakfast.
My only small improvement would be to have tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
Seriously Amazing Experience 100% service
Personally greeted after a horriffic journey where the staff talked us in on the telephone!
Upon arrival met with a smile and welcome outside of the door in the pouring rain! Car was parked bags brought in and taken to the room dinner reservation checked and then greeted by the general manager!
There was a big party in house but they in no way detracted from providing us with the same phenomenal experience.
Food, wine, service, staff, courtesy and room - OUTSTANDING! If you have not been GO! GO! GO!
Make sure you have the cheese course amazing selection - cheese with a truffle through it. What a magnificent experience.
The horse riding was a magnificent worthwhile extra.
The most well hosted Hotel I have ever experienced.
A touch of class
When booking from a brochure sometimes a hotel can be disapointing, but with Lucknam Park you'll be far from that.
From the moment we passed through the gates and up the tree lined drive we knew this was somewhere a bit special.
It has the feeling that your a guest in a private country house
much like the Chewton Glen in Hampshire another Relais and Chateaux hotel.
On arrival my boyfriend and I were upgraded to the perriwinkle room which had views over the courtyard, we had peek in some of the other rooms too which all looked to be of the same high standard!
The restaurant and service is fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. You must try the puddings!
Even though we had only stayed for one night it felt like a real get away. Would love to go back someday soon and thats coming from someone who is a very fussy customer!
Stayed for the weekend, had a great time even though the hot water went off for 1 hour due to burst pipe the staff all did everything possible to help and make the stay superb. The food is as good if not better than most michelin star establishments in central London. We will be going back but next time it will be for longer.
We were a family party of 14 aged from 10 weeks to 84!. We had 5 rooms in the courtyard, all well furnished with all you would expect from the Relais & Chateau chain. We had exclusive use of the Boardroom and Conference room for pre dinner drinks, Breakfast and Dinner which worked really well with tottlers able to roam around freely. The food was excellent, clearly the chef and manager who have come from London are after a Michelin star. The staff were superb, friendly, helping with the children and making sure our stay went well.
The facilities are excellent the libruary and lounge having recently had a £1M renovation, lovely pool and Jacuzi with a full sized snooker table. The grounds of around 500 acres have the feel of an english country home
We have had four trips as a family like this. This was the best venue we have had so far
Great Weekend Break
Fantastic food, wine, activities and service levels. Cannot recommend it highly enough
My husband and I stayed here in early september, and the entire estate reminded us of a very fine British movie. The rooms were large-no two alike. The grounds breathtaking, the food was fantastic and the service likewise. We plan to return many times!!
Top class luxury hotel!
Very nice hotel (4 red AA stars). Room great, swimming pool & spa absolutely brilliant (and so often they turn outt to disappoint - not this one). You have to search hard for a good deal, but worth the effort!

... are a short distance out of the main city centre so we have to drive to get our groceries. It is always interesting shopping in supermarkets overseas and comparing the similarities and differences to home. We tried Aldi for our first venture. It was just like shopping in Victoria. Even a lot of the brands were the same. We found our way okay and managed to get set up with a few basic supplies. The advantage with a house exchange is that there ...
We had a great time in Cardiff apart from the cricket. I got go to the Cardiff castle and see day 3 of the first test where 15 wickets fell in one day. I was hoping that day was to be remembered as the day of watto but as a lot of people say "Are we seriously relying on Shane Watson". Anyway Cardiff castle was brilliant and i got to model Steve smith. We go to Paris in a few days. So ...

First Aid kit (for a day sack)
The biggest item in the First Aid kit is the Aspiventin that sucks out poison from bites and stings. I'd have been sceptical about this if I hadn't seen it used by Sarah for sea urchin spines in Turkey (ow). Lots of what we have is courtesy of the NHS, either from various trips to casualty (its criminal what they throw away!) or from when my mum ...
... in the city, and there's actually selection if I want to make something specific. Good to know for special cooking nights.
Came back home to put away the groceries, and the bananas I bought just to keep up the eating fruits thing and headed back down to the Crypt for lunch. I apologize as it's one of the things I know I don't have a picture of yet. Having given Martin my room deposit (oh Canadian money, please don't be so fickle!), I sat down for lunch. There ...
