Cricket St. Thomas House Hotel in Somerset the scene of much of the famous TV comedy, To The Manor Born, Cricket St. Thomas was also frequently visited by Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton. This classic country house is set in splendid parkland, with colourful gardens, lakes, and a unique woodland area. The hotel provides extensive entertainment, including nightly live performances, and excellent dining venues, including The Granary which is set in a pretty walled garden.
Warner Hotels have great food

just had a afternoon tea we were given a voucher and had a lovely time very clean also where to the manor born was film great location staff very helpful also have known the past owners the Taylor family years ago
We have now been to all the Adult only Warners Holiday Stately establishments not on the coast,and think this one is the best.It has quite an extensive layout so be prepared for some walking to the different areas eg dining room,concert room,leisure centre etc,especially from rooms 400+. The gardens and grounds are absolutely fabulous and well looked after.The staff are very friendly and all the dining room staff very helpful.
The cleanliness of everywhere was excellent especially our bedroom with en suite and a huge bed.
Will be going again.
As a party of four we stayed for two nights midweek. Paid for an early check in which worked like a dream. We stayed in room 461 a quiet area at the end of the walled garden rooms. Very pleased with room and patio. The vast majority of those staying were of mature years, which suited us fine. Everyone, staff and holiday makers alike were so friendly it added to the joy of our stay. Food was of a high quality with the small gripe that the restaurant is open for dinner until only 8pm. This was a bit too early for us as not mustard keen to get to the entertainment. 9pm would have been perfect. We did get to see some of the entertainment and it was pretty good. The vast grounds are fantastic so take your camera. We indulged in putting, rifle shooting and bowls and thoroughly enjoyed it. If you suffer with mobility problems, make sure you get a room near the restaurant or it could involve a longish walk. Thoroughly recommend this place and we shall be back! Many thanks to SARAH CHANT, we cannot praise you highly enough.
Just returned from a Monday to Friday stay in the walled garden. Had a recently refurbished room with a superking very comfortable bed and superb pillows, bathroom had a big walk in shower. Room was good size and quiet, surrounded by gardens, woke up to the beautiful bird songs every morning. Had window wide open because of the rather warm duvet. It is a good walk to the Tree tops restaurant from where we were, which didn't bother us, but anyone with less mobility may need to check with the hotel re the distance to facilities from their room.
We enjoyed all our food, both from the carvery and served to the the table. We did feel a little bit squashed in where we were seated (157) and found the round table too small for four people, especially at breakfast time. The reason I have given a rating of 4 instead of 5 is due to the fact that we felt our table had been squeezed into a space not normally used.
We do a lot of dancing so having the chance to dance whilst on holiday was something we really appreciated, with the added bonus of entertainment too. We also enjoyed the morning quiz after breakfast, walks in the lovely gardens and we even watched a good film one afternoon.
We found all the staff to be very pleasant, helpful and extremely dedicated and hard working.
We have stayed with warners over a long period of time, but this was our first visit to cricket st Thomas, it won't be our last.
