The driveway to Mellington Hall becomes memory lane

This fantastic old photograph was given to us just this week. Its shows the Lodge at the bottom of Mellington Hall driveway – once the main entrance to the magnificent Hall. The date is unknown but keen observers note the whitewash blobs in the windows and rubble in front so it was probably taken during construction or […]

It’s getting better all the time

One of the nicest spaces at Mellington Hall (in a building full of fascinating corners) is the William Morris room, named after the designs by that great artist which adorn the ceiling. As part of our continuing improvements we have just refurnished the room to bring it up to standard. Morris himself urged us to […]

Hats off to our chef Tom

There’s probably only one thing better than tucking into a rib of beef that has been cooked to perfection and that’s seeing the look on the Chef’s face when all his time in the kitchen pays off. Be honest, did you ever see anything as mouth-watering as that beef, or anyone quite as proud as […]

A room with a view. Well, actually, we have a 10 of them.

Most of us live in streets in towns and cities so our view as we look out from our bedroom windows is mostly of cars and houses. That’s why staying at Mellington Hall is so special. Look at these views from two of our bedroom windows. Even in January you can see for miles through […]

Our menu for St Valentine’s: so much more than a lovin’ spoonful

It’s that time of year again and our Chef has crafted a wonderful menu for all tastes. Being Mellington, it all starts appropriately enough with bubbles and canapes on arrival followed by a cornucopia of soup, fish, meat, game, and vegetarian dishes. It’s considered bad form to stint yourself on these occasions so of course […]

A man walks into a bar…

No, this isn’t the start of joke. The man in question is Chris Offa, Sales Manager at Charles Ransford & Son, the sawmill in Bishops’s Castle owned by the same family as own Mellington Hall Hotel. The bar in question is Offa’s Bar in the Hotel, so called because Offa’s Dyke Way runs throught the […]

Speaking of five star ratings….

….we couldn’t help reflect (as we sat by the log fire in a brief lull) that since we took back control of the hotel on 1st November 2017 we have had 18 reviews on tripadvisor. Of those, 17 have given us a five star rating whilst the other gave us four stars. It has, as one reviewer said, […]
