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!

... said it is Bibury, and I have to say that Bibury has my vote of the places we have seen to date.
But it's not just pretty villages. We have visited Cirencester with its amazing Roman Museum and Avebury, with an incredible number of standing stones. We have been trying to do a walk or a ramble everyday in the incredibly green countryside which is full of clumps of yellow daffodils.
Yes,the Cotswold are lovely. ...
Sorry for the chee-z title.. Struggling with being clever this weekend. For Easter weekend, we were lucky enough to have a 4 day weekend instead of the normal 3. I waited a little too late to buy plane tickets (they were insanely expensive) so I ended up staying in Oxford and doing day trips around England with some friends which ended up being really relaxing and fun. The past 3 weekends I have been traveling like crazy so it was nice just hanging out. The ...
... at Sally Lunn's, in the oldest building in Bath. Afterwards we continued wandering around Bath. The sun was back out, so everyone else was too. The deck chairs in the park also made an appearance. Ended on a high note at Jamie's Italian. Said good bye to Rebecca (for 3 weeks at least), then home. We have an early start ...
... After lunch we were feeling full, tired and ready to head home. On the way home we made a quick detour. A road sign directed us to Midsomer Norton. I wanted to visit and despite everyone's objections we made a quick photo stop. Nobody was murdered, bonus, so all was okay. Back to Bath and a walk around town. Lots of people out and about here too. Beautiful and sunny all day. Washing and early night for these tired ...
... be my travel buddy! I have a really good feeling about that :)
I know for certain that half the letters I've sent have gotten to their recipients! Hurrah! Faster than I expected! And I've heard I may get some replies? I'll write back and forth with anyone who wants to: open invitation!
It's 1am and I'm tired and with no sheets, Amy lent me this sleeping bag so I'm going to get some rest.
Lots of love to all of you back home!
