Each of our rooms has its own unique style and character and none more so than the Lord’s Room. The grandly dressed and luxuriously decorated room was once occupied in Jacobean times by the Lord and Lady of the Manor of Allington and is well suited to those in search of a little opulence. The freestanding roll-top bath, six-foot bateau bed, subtle lighting and seventeenth-century stone surround open fire all combine to create the exclusivity which has been demanded by successive Lords of the Manor for the past 400 years. This room enjoys views over the front garden to a magnificent ash tree and across a neighbouring meadow to the village green. It also boasts an en suite toilet and shower, television, radio, wireless internet connection and coffee & tea making facilities
The Lady’s Room is a perfect choice for those seeking a restful retreat. This beautifully proportioned room offers complete luxury with its calming pale green colour scheme, large four-poster bed, Georgian marble fireplace and high quality furnishings. It is set above The Hall and overlooks a magnificent ash tree at the front of the house. This room offers a freestanding roll-top bath, en suite shower and toilet, television, radio, wireless internet connection and coffee & tea making facilities.
Situated at the back of the house with an outlook over the rear garden, the Garden Room offers a little tranquillity and a lot of luxury.This room has a distinctly cottage-like feel with its parchment and blue colour scheme, complemented by a brass and iron bedstead and delicate pine furniture. The spacious en-suite bathroom has an antique six-foot cast iron bath and shower in which to unwind. In common with the other rooms, a television, radio, wireless internet connection and coffee & tea making facilities are provided.

Super short overnight stay. A roaring fire awaited us in the hall on arrival where we enjoyed a cup of tea. Our room was delightful. A good size, the four poster bed was large and most comfortable. There was plenty of hot water to relax in the free standing bath along with candles provided. With internet and tea making facilities, we felt quite at home! Read more

We stayed in the Lords Room. It was just beautiful. Unfortunately our stay was not long enough. Read more
Unfortunately we were only able to stay the one night but it was very memorable. We loved the house and the staff as well as the wonderful village. They were able to provide us with a wonderful afternoon tea at very short notice. Read more
I decided that reaching my conference in Peterborough was possible from here and so pleased I did - much lovelier staying in a rural village. Beds extremely comfy with gorgeous linen. Leo very helpful and welcoming - brought a lovely cup of tea to my room on arrival - very welcome after a long drive. There is a very handy pub in the village with good food and if you're very lucky (!) - the monthly pub quiz may be on! Read more
The whole experience was great. The place is picturesque and has character. The room was clean and everything we needed was available to us and it was made clear that if we needed anything the hotel staff would try their best to get it for us. We didn't actually need anything but it was a nice gesture. We felt at home the entire visit.
The breakfast was also great.
Thanks again Allington Manor but the pleasure was all ours. Read more
Excellent in every way. Read more
Spent a night at this beautiful house. Enjoyed a welcome tea in the garden, had supper at lovely pub down the road. Read more
We often stay here because it is beautiful old building where you are left to yourselves so it is like having your own country manor for the time you are there. The Welby Arms is just across the village green which does excellent evening meals so we always go there too. Read more
Excellent. In every way.
Friendly. Spotless. Great shower ! And even better breakfast.
Will def stay again. And next time I will have a full English ! :) a lovely touch being offered tea on the lawn on arrival.
Keep up the great work.

The hotel itself is a beautiful period building with lots of character (described as a hotel museum by my son). The room was perfect, large enough to easily accommodate 2 adults and 2 small children with a roll top bath in the room. The beds were very comfortable and the children slept soundly on the beds put up for them. The hotel staff were accommodating and friendly, even getting the room ready for us an hour and half early so we could change for a wedding we were attending. Read more
Although we only stayed one night, we were instantly made to feel at home. The house is absolutely amazing and the family history behind it. Nothing was too much trouble and for anybody who enjoys old properties and antiques, this is the place to stay. Read more
Really lovely place to stay, will be going back. Will also recommend. Read more
Your arrival at the venue is exciting in itself. As you approach the magnificent Manor House and its surrounding areas you really feel the stress of cities etc dissipating.
Once we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by the owner, Leo and Pete one of the staff. They could not have been more helpful and welcoming.
The rooms are stunning and one of, if not the most comfortable beds and rooms I have ever had the good fortune of staying in. Meticulous attention to detail and cleanliness. Read more
We often stay at Allington Manor and it is a pleasure very time. The staff are friendly but leave the place to yourselves and it is like a step back in time.
A wonderful place and just across from the very good Welby Arms for a drink and an excellent meal. Read more
We could not have been happier with our stay at Allington Manor. It was sad to not have stayed longer. We were greeted by our friendly host at the door , shown our room and brought a pot of tea. There was a wonderful fire in our room. We had dinner at a pub that was recommended called Chequers Inn, Woolthorpe. It was a lovely meal. Read more
Great comfortable large bed, great roll top bath. But the rest was old room on a slant very clean but had a smell of a museum Read more

We stayed here five nights on our annual trip through England and had the Garden Room,which looked over the back garden and was wonderfully done up. Indeed, the entire house, filled lovingly with antiques, gave the cozy, country manor feel we were looking for, right up to the tea we had in the hall with the fire going - priceless! Read more
Beautiful manor house and garden to relax in. Leo is without a doubt the most polite person on the planet and nothing is too much to ask! The room was excellent and there is a lot of history to look at in the house which Leo will guide you through if your not sure. I'm positive that Allington Manor is only going to get better and I will definitely be going back even if it's just for afternoon tea or a beauty treatment. Can't praise enough. Read more

We celebrated our forty first wedding anniversary at Allington Manor. The Manor is a beautiful building set in a rural village, the manor has an intimate feel. The accommodation, standards of service, friendliness and wonderful atmosphere at the Manor are first class. We were made very welcome by our hosts and staff, wandered about, soaked up the historical atmosphere and relaxed . Well recommended. Read more
It was only for one day, but it made my day. Read more
The breakfast service was the worst we have ever experienced. Slow, unprofessional, inattentive, at times impolite. Cereal & yoghurt was simply placed on a bar counter in their boxes. No crockery. No waiter service. No napkin by the bread loaf. The longest wait for the cooked breakfast. It was quite simply, the lowest form of guest services we have ever encountered. Read more
Thank you for your comments, we take all feedback seriously and use it to improve our service. We are sorry to hear that you didnt enjoy aspects of your stay. Regarding the wait for breakfast, on check in you specified that you would like breakfast at 9am, however you came down at 8am. Whilst this in itself was not a problem it meant we didnt have everything ready. We have never recieved negative feedback concerning our breakfasts or the conduct of our staff before as our other reviews will show
Stayed in the Ladies room, absolutely fantastic setting for something a bit different from your average B&B or hotel break. Local Inn/Pub/Restaurant just a couple of minutes walk from the Manor House. Will definately be returning. Read more

I had a very decadent and luxurious stay at Allington Manor. What an amazing place that has been renovated to preserve its integrity whilst peppered with modern touches that compliment the ambiance of this beautiful old manor house. An absolute gem and is on my favourites list. I will be going back and staying longer next time. Read more
We had a lovely stay at Allington Manor in The Lady's Room. Leo and Amy are great hosts e.g serving drinks in the garden and booking a table at the local pub for our meal that evening. Read more
A 1 night stay that was relaxed and comfortable. Stayed in the Lady's room which was lovely, spacious and lovely decoration. Warm welcome from the manager, we sat in the garden for a brief while, a drinks service would have been a nice touch, or at least some water in the room, the tea tray was fairly basic. A hearty breakfast in a wonderfully old room full of character and the cheeky dogs outside who were obviously after some bacon scraps!! We were told about local pubs for dinner . Read more
One night stay. Nice room,. comfortable bed and great English breakfast. House is 00's year old so you can't get away from other 'house-noise' (in our case guests getting back to their room at 3am). Beware using taxis in this area, a 5 mile trip to near village costs fifteen pounds each way(fixed fare guv)! Read more

The building is very interesting and looks beautiful.Our room (The Lady's Room) was lovely and it has the most comfortable bed. The staff Leo and Amy could not be more helpful.
The breakfast was really good with the freshest bread I have ever tasted.
The gardens are well tended and the silence as you sit amoung the flowers(and occassional pet dog!) is a million miles away from the city noise that we are used to. Read more
I have stayed at the Manor house 3 times now and the only reason the number is this low is because it is always fully booked when I want to go. So I would love to be able to say don't go here, it is rubbish, but I can't lie, it is blis. It isn't like a normal hotel, so if you want modern, this isn't it. The place has so much charactor, it is just my ideal place to stay. The two rooms that we have booked and stayed in are the Lords room, more manyl, as the name implies and the Lady's room. Read more
Wish I could have stayed longer and wish I could have taken my gf. This is a period property with amazing antiques throughout and a wonderful feel. The room I stayed in was probably my favourite ever! Lovely furniture giant wooden sleigh bed roll top bath in the room, 3 full length windows with wonderful view, high quality bedding and an excellent shower. It was very quiet, relaxing and indulgent. Leo was very friendly and helpful and cooked a fantastic breakfast. Hope I get to stay again soon! Read more

We stayed 3 nights in the Lord's room. Having stayed for one night a couple of years ago, I have been trying to book a longer stay for awhile now and this time manages to get a room.
This isn't like your normal hotel room or guest house and the setting in the village is great. Read more
My husband & I booked in for Valentine's day. We started with champagne afternoon tea, which was lovely but I was glad we could use our Groupon voucher as it seemed a little expensive. Service is excellent & staff couldn't have been more friendly. We ate dinner at the Welby Arms which was recommended by Leo & didn't disappoint, & was only 100 yards from the manor. The bed in our room (Lord's room) was very comfy and breakfast the following morning was perfect! Read more
Two nights in the Lady's Room which is elegant and very comfortable. Read more
An overnight stay during an all too short visit to a gorgeous hotel in a beautiful part of the country. Ate in the evening at the nearby pub a short walk into the village.

Would recommend highly to anyone who enjoys a bit of style and luxury - at very affordable prices. Read more

We stayed for two nights at Allington Manor to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. We were in the Lady's room. The room itself was beautiful and full of the same antique quirkiness that was found in the rest of the hotel, and included a roll top bath in the room which was used, & very relaxing! The bathroom was small but well equipped and had a shower with a huge head. We had a delicious full english breakfast on both mornings of our stay and Leon who manages the hotel could not be more helpful. Read more

We were drawn to the area by the reputation of Harry's Place in Great Gonerby, and were delighted to find Allington Manor in the Alastair Sawday Guide just a few miles away. We loved the shape of this Jacobean Manor, the friendly, relaxed welcome, our beautiful, peaceful Lord's room, the fire, the wonderful bath and shower, the character of the whole hotel. Historic atmosphere but modern comforts, and committed owners who care about their guests. Thank you. Read more
What a beautiful place! Once more it was just as we hoped. Very peaceful and relaxing. The Lords room is truly sumptuous! Open fire, huge bed, roll top bath!

The Old Manor House at Allington is situated on the fringe of the Vale of Belvoir and in a tranquil Lincolnshire village with excellent road links. It offers a unique blend of beautiful and restful country life along with a variety of more lively attractions close to hand. The market towns of Grantham - birthplace of Isaac Newton and Margaret Thatcher - and Newark, with its strong reputation for antiques, are on the doorstep. The historic town of Stamford and also Burghley with its world famous horse trials, lie 20 minutes South; as does Rutland Water, Britain’s largest man made lake. Nottingham with its Castle, Tales of Robin Hood, Playhouse Theatre, Trent Bridge Cricket Ground, Forest and County Football clubs as well as The National Ice Stadium, Arena and Water Sports Centre are only half an hour away. The Manor is a beautifully restored Grade II Jacobean building. It is steeped in history with the original manor on this site recorded in the Doomsday Book. The current Manor dates back to 1450, evidence of cellars, attics, priest holes and all the human history that suggests, is everywhere. The Manor is a now a grand family home with all the warmth, comfort and quality that go with that and guests are welcomed with throughout their stay. Enjoy our deluxe accommodation, unwind at the end of the day in the stunning Drawing room and soak up the country while you relax in our beautiful garden and enjoy your coffee. For the more active perhaps you would enjoy a game of croquet, a ride on one of our bicycles or a walk on one of the many from the Manor. We invite you, to share in the history, the beauty of the setting and the sheer quality of all aspects of the accommodation and treat this lovely Manor home as your own.
