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 […]

Think of this as a red carpet

Slowly but surely we’re getting things the way we want them at Mellington Hall Hotel – less than two months from taking back control. We’re greatly encouraged by the fantastic response from guests both in comments they make to us in person during their visits and in the feedback they provide on tripadvisor.

‘Downton Abbey with a touch of Brideshead’

Not our words but those of a recent guest at Mellington Hall who was kind enough to post a review of the hotel on tripadvisor.com where you can read the recent reviews for yourself. Worth saying though how much feedback like this means to the team here at the hotel. Our aim is to make […]

And don’t forget that after a bracing walk in the grounds there are blazing log fires and hot drinks […]

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

As you can see, this place is as pretty as a picture at the first dusting of snow: greatly helped by the fact that the beautiful grounds are kept so well by the team here. It might be arctic weather outside but inside the hotel the log fires are crackling away and everyone’s as snug as […]

Up, running, and very nicely busy thank you!

Our new website is not the only thing that is now up and running. It’s really pleasing to report that since the management of the Hotel came back in to the hands of the family that owns it we’ve had nothing but praise from guests – whether they’ve stayed overnight or popped in for a […]

Major new development on the Holiday Home Park

Some fantastic images depicting how our new development is unfolding here at Mellington Hall Holiday Home Park with the first four concrete pads having been laid already by Keith and his hard working team.
