6/10 Good

Very poor room state.
Having paid the best part of £200 for a room I would not have expected filthy carpets, you could see the track from the door through the room. The sink was visibly broken and when I made a cup of tea in the morning, there may have been descaler left in the kettle as when I took my first swallow it tasted acrid and I had a sore throat for the rest of the day.

Amazing hotel, spa, food and service
We had the most wonderful stay at Sopwell house - everything was great from the facilities (the spa in particular was amazing but the rooms also), to the food and the staff were super polite and go through every effort to make you feel welcome and special. The spa facilities are great - the pool is perfect temperature, the jacuzzi is amazing and so is the sauna. We also had dinner and breakfast at the hotel and both were really memorable. Thank you for everything!

Superb spa hotel
This was my first visit to Sopwell House and I had the best time. It was a solo birthday trip and the staff couldn't have been kinder or more welcoming, especially Sonia who was happy to fulfil a couple of special requests that I had. The facilities are superb, the room was spacious and very clean and I enjoyed my dinner and breakfast. I would recommend this to anyone looking to stay at a luxury spa hotel. It is a bit pricey, but it's worth it.
