Overview

The Elms Country House Hotel & Spa is a manor house built in 1710, set in 10 acres of grounds. It's less than an hour's drive from Birmingham, and around 15 minutes' drive from the Wyre Forest Nature Reserve, where you'll find many walking trails and Go Ape, a high-wire treetop challenge (fees apply). Witley Court and Gardens is less than 10 minutes' drive from the hotel, and the West Midland Safari Park and Severn Valley Steam Railway are both less than 30 minutes' drive away.

The hotel's gardens feature a croquet lawn and tennis court. Many of the herbs, vegetables and fruit used in the restaurant are grown in the kitchen garden. Spa facilities include a sauna, a steam room, an ice fountain, a gym and treatment rooms, plus there's an indoor swimming pool and a hydro pool that is half indoors and half outdoors.

Breakfast is served in the Brookes restaurant, while light lunches and afternoon tea can be enjoyed in the Garden Café, which has views over the lawns. The Brookes restaurant holds a two AA Rosettes and offers a more formal dining experience for dinner, with a set menu and an à la carte Best of British menu.

Bedrooms are furnished in a country-house style. Most are in the main house but there are six in the coach-house annex. Wi-Fi is free.

Hotel decor is fantastic. Food is outstanding. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Can’t wait to take my overseas guests here. Repeat visit for us after a personal recommendation from a travelzoo team member. Keep the deals coming for this hotel please

Lovely room overlooking grounds. Enjoyed the garden, pristine bed and quality linen and towels. Warm bathroom. Friendly, motivated staff and a sleepy black cat on a lounge chair, so sweet.

The only observation I'd make is the gloomy paintwork especially in the reception area. Too much Farrow & Ball matt emulsion for my taste but, I suppose, perhaps in keeping with the period of the house? It didn't detract from out visit though.

The whole experience...the pretty drive there through the countryside, the delicious 7 course taster menu, the relaxed atmosphere at the hotel plus Dave the Manager was a quirky, knowledgeable, funny chap that added to the whole experience. Finally, we loved relaxing in the pool & sauna after breakfast the next day. We'll definitely return.

Personally, We would have liked the restaurant staff to tell us exactly what we were being served when eating a taster menu as it adds to the whole experience.
