Address: Brownsover Lane
Rugby CV21 1HU „
Brownsover hall hotel is a stunning building, the grounds are extensive and are lovely for photo opertunities.
The rooms are satisfactory, not worth the higher mid week rate of £120 that I have known them to charge, but you can often get bargains on the website.
I have been to a few events here, the murder mystery event was very well done, and the food served was lovely, however the menu was a set 3 courses and you don't get a choice of anything else. The staff were touch and go, there are a few eastern europeans working here and therefore you cant always make sence of what they are saying and vice versa!
I almost chose brownsover hall for my wedding and the location was brilliant but I found the wedding co ordinator a little pushy and they wanted us to put down a large non refundable deposit before being able to tell us the price per head for the year we wanted to marry!!
Anyone visiting Rugby (Warwickshire) has got to stay at Brownsover Hall.....Its absolutly stunning.
I am totally biast as i met my husband there 11 years ago when he was the chef there and i got a saturday job working as a waitress....so hold lots of fond memories for me....!!!
It is a gothic manor house and the decor is in a beutiful style, with red walls with gold crests/fleur de lys things on and oak panneling etc. the grounds are amazing and are always beutifully maintained. the hotel is set in an old lane and is so deceptive as you feel like you are in the middle of no where, but you only have to drive out of the lane and you are right next to all motorway links and near the centre of Rugby.
When working there we always had a lot of guest come to stay that were interested in ghosts, as there are many stories about ghosts haunting the hotel. (the lady... the handless rider....monks etc etc)
Im not sure how true this is, or if its just urban legends...... but the place can sometimes give you the creeps.... i think its the size of the place that does it and the weird creeking noise you hear in old building like this.
My husband swears he once saw a figure go down the grand sweeping stair case....... i suspect he had a few too many beers after his shift....but still!!!
The food is great and although we have not worked there for many years we still go back for there sunday dinner quite often, its really good, and the staff are very nice and friendly.
The chefs there are very experienced and have worked there for over 13 years, the standard of their food never faulters and i have never had one complaint with any meal i have purchased there, or even when i have attended several wedding there, the food is always top class.
The wedding service they provide is outstanding, now do not get me wrong you have to pay for what you get and its not cheap.... but the venue and the grounds are worth it as your photos will be amazing especially the favorite amongst the photographers, which is the bride coming down the stair case!!!! AMAZING!!!!
I can not reccomend this hotel enough, i promise anyone who goes there will not be dispointed ....every aspect of the hotel is top class.
I just had a look on their website as well to see what there prices are like now for a room, they start from 48.00 per person for bed and breakfast. There are some good special offers on though for eg....
The Warwick Castle Break
2 night dinner, bed and breakfast package for only £55.50 per person per night; to include dinner, overnight accommodation, full English breakfast and Warwick Castle entry for 2 adults and 2 children, children charges will apply of £13.50 per child for Dinner and Breakfast.
have a look at there website....you can see what i mean about the colours and decor and history etc
Also I was quite suprised to see you can redeem your clubcard deals vouchers at folio hotels...i never knew that!!!! so i would say get shopping...save your vouchers and whisk your hubby or wife away for a romantic break!!!!
