Marvellous Comfortable Gem

I stayed for two nights and used Kegworth House as my base as I was travelling out and about a lot.
Everything about this hotel was excellent. Reception / greeting / Room / Breakfast / Staff all very welcoming, friendly and accommodating.
A great find that I would undoubtedly use again if and when required and would recommend without hesitation. Read more

Friendly and character hotel where you feel special and at home.

Our visit was far too short. Our room was beautiful with a feeling of luxury and comfort. There was everything we needed for our comfort and we would have stayed longer. Our receptionist, Neive, (sorry, I don't know the spelling!) was welcoming and professional. Our chef and his assistant were first class - breakfast was excellent. Loved sitting at the big breakfast table with other guests and see breakfast being prepared. Read more

Very happy but the noise from the utilities system meant I slept with earplugs

Very friendly, clean and comfortable. I would happily stay again but would avoid the Room number 1 because of the drone from the utlities cupboard next door. Without ear plugs I would have struggled. Apart from that, I was happy with everything else. It was also a great selection for breakfast and i enjoyed my stay. Read more

Beautiful, charming, family run hotel a cut above the rest

My husband and I stayed here for one night as we were going to the Prescott racetrack the next day. We arrived late and were welcomed by friendly staff who showed us to our room and explained about breakfast. The hotel is lovely, very different from a dreary copycat business hotel and our room had lots of lovely little touches. AS its a small family run hotel, there are not a lot of facilities compared to bigger hotels but I think it has everything you need and the breakfast was fabulous! Read more

A welcome visit back to Kegworth House Hotel

We were visiting our daughter who is at Uni locally & living in Kegworth. We like to stay at Kegworth House. It is an individual hotel not one of a chain. Each room is different. Building is old & quirky so several staircases and different level. Rooms are pleasant, clean & comfortable. We ordered drinks which were delivered to our room. Also old furniture and paintings.

Always such a pleasure!

I have stayed in this hotel on many occasions (in different rooms) and it never fails to deliver excellent service. The rooms are beautiful and well maintained. Softest sheets with beautiful bedding, iron, hairdryer, safe, TV, toiletries, welcome tray with biscuits, bathrobe, dvd player (can borrow if you wish) - breakfast cooked to order at a time you prefer. The hotel is gorgeous with a lovely atmosphere from owners and staff. I would recommend to anyone. Read more

Perfect Stay

Stayed overnight whilst visiting a relative nearby. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Provided the ground floor room we had requested for my father, which was spacious and lovely. Our room was very small (Mimosa Room)but beautifully decorated - as we were only staying overnight it wasn't a problem but might be a bit small for longer stays. Unfortunately the weather was wet so we couldn't enjoy the garden. Read more

We requested early check in, this was never answered. This was excused upon arrival though, and the room - not to mention the bathroom! - was stunning. We would have liked a softer bed, but this is a problem that we meet in every hotel. We had a departure at 5 am, it would have been nice to get the offer of picking up i.e. a readymade sandwich in the fridge as we had no breakfast.

Business trip. Normally I stay in large chain hotels e.g. Holiday Inn, Marriott. As in chain hotels you know what to expect. Due to the price I decided to find a more local hotel. This hotel was wonderful. The hotel has a true home feel to it, and the lady in charge was excellent, as I have to say was the younger lady who checked me in and the 'aprentice' who helped the lady in charge in the kitchen. Great team. Read more

Mind your head!

Room 2 has a beam, which we were warned about, but my husband hurt his head on it quite badly. it could easily be altered slightly and definitely needs something on it. Perhaps the bed could be moved to the other side of the room or something. Read more

Likes?
The rooms were beautifully presented and very comfortable. I loved the toiletries that were provided.
Dislikes?
I think for the price there could be fresh milk in the room.
We were asked what time we wanted breakfast but were then told that 9.00 would be better so that they could clean up.

A fabulous 'one off' boutique style hotel. Individually designed rooms with plenty of attention to detail. Fantastically welcoming hosts and perhaps the best breakfast you could imagine.
Dislikes?
The only negative thing is that you are under the flight path from East Midlands airport.

Loved the kitchen/breakfast room. Liked the extra touches like books dotted around and DVD's available.

Well (Keg)worth it.

A relaxed couple of days that was "stress-free" due to the friendly and helpful staff and the "presentation" of the hotel.
The hotel itself is in a superb location within the village (3 "curry houses", 2 pubs & a bus-stop all within a short walk). Read more

Likes?
A very "posh" venue with a superb "informal feel" again due to the "character" of the hotel and the demeanor of the staff.
Dislikes?
Nothing to fault.

Electric shower in my ensuit was not bad for an electric shower, but its not as good as a power shower - I suspect it uses less water though so it is better environmentally, I guess.

Friendly small hotel

Even though I was a single traveller, my one night stay was in the bridal suite. This spacious traditionally furnished large room had all amenities, such as tea & coffe making facilities, trouser press, flat screen tv. etc. The bathroom was very large and well fitted. The whole accommodation was spotlessly clean. Read more

Description

Kegworth House dates back over 350 years and is a distinctly English residence situated in Kegworth village. The heritage and history is evident and the elegant Georgian facade conceals a stone-flagged hallway that leads into the welcoming and relaxing drawing room with an open fire, comfortable sofas and easy arm chairs. Also to the front of the house, the formal dining room is furnished with antiques atop a polished oak floor and dominated by the c17th mahogany 12 seat dining table and chairs - enchanting and charming surroundings for candlelit suppers. The hall continues on to the bright and inviting, casual, family-style, kitchen where full English and Continental award winning breakfasts are served to all guests around the large, refectory-style table. Kegworth House is the ideal location for genteel celebrations and social gatherings – birthdays, Christenings, anniversaries and retirement celebrations for up to 20 guests can be accommodated in the house. Larger events, of up to 100, use marquees on the lawn whilst smaller, more intimate dinner parties for up to 12 guests take place in the luxurious surroundings of the formal dining room after drinks or cocktails in the loung. Kegworth House is fully licensed and offers a well-stocked cellar with quality wines. Eleven beautifully appointed, en-suite, double bedrooms (four of which feature 'Queen size' beds) are located on three floors - each individually designed and featuring the modern day comforts that make this historical home a perfect retreat. The hotel is loved by guests and this is recognised by their reviews leading to its recent Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor.
