Orton Hall deserves praise for its hospitality: Katie on reservation, Donna at reception, Dom during breakfast service, those responsible for the cleanliness of our room and also for the food from the Ramblewood Inn (room service in the hotel lounge). Thank you. The parkland and woodland setting of the hotel and our dog-friendly room were also great, and, indeed, the hotel itself has a super position in a suburban village whilst providing easy access to all main routes. I also availed myself of the pool and spa facilities, and actually managed 50 lengths without a ball, ring or lilo insight. This too would be a draw for me to return, as well as for other future guests.
I think that the transition from stately home to girls' school to hotel and wedding venue has resulted in some strange aspects of design, notwithstanding the fact that a lot of money has obviously been invested. True, there are aspects of the property that need updating; however, we felt that our stay was extremely good value. We would also suggest more outdoor seating around the hotel, pub and parkland: in the warmth of the evening we struggled to find somewhere to sit outside in the open air where we could enjoy a meal or drinks.
We look forward to returning and once again thank the staff for their kindness towards ourselves and our dog, Lucy. less

Thank you for taking time to review your stay at Orton Hal Hotel.
It was lovely to hear that you had an enjoyable stay.
We have taken your comments on board with regards to the outdoor seating and this some that we will look into improving over the forthcoming months.
We look forward to welcoming you and your dog Lucy in the not too distant future.
