Su Kim-Stroud, London
‘I have recommended your service to a number of my friends and contacts. It's one of the best investments we have made in a while.' February 2011

Catherine Kiaie, Yorkshire
‘The Caesar in London - great hotel - thanks for arranging it. Highly recommended! Fantastic job by the Club at the last minute. Much appreciated.’ August 2010

Mel Dyke, South Yorkshire
‘Thank you so much. Addison Lee were wonderful, just as Caroline said - texted to say they were on route with details of the vehicle and again that the car had arrived early giving the driver’s mobile number in case we couldn’t see the car. He couldn’t have been more helpful and got us to the train in excellent time. With thanks again to CCUK.’ July 2010

Vicky Hodge, Hertfordshire
‘The Battle of Britain trip yesterday was lovely! It went like clockwork without appearing over-organised. I had gone not knowing anyone but was made very welcome by everyone and the lunch was delicious, eaten outside—even the weather was wonderful! Thank you CountryClubuk, for organising it.’ May 2010

Sara Oliver, London
‘Thank you so much for organising our trip to the Abbaye de Talloires hotel on Lake Annesy. The hotel was wonderful, the views fantastic, absolutely as described. We would recommend this break to anybody.’ May 2010

Inara Abolins  
‘Langrish House, Petersfield is the tops! We were greeted by the owner at dinner the first evening and on the next by his wife. The food is out of this world. The room was sunny with a beautiful outlook on the garden, more like a park. A delightful place in every way; we shall certainly return.’ January 2010

Mike and Gaynor Boyce
‘I would just like to let you know how much my wife and I enjoyed our visit, with CountryClubuk, to Guards Polo Club on Sunday at Smiths Lawn. We had a splendid day out, the organisation was superb, we had great seats and a good view. We took home the memories of a great day out along with superb action and good company.’ August 2009

Beryl Weston  
‘Our favourite of your Free Breaks Portfolio is Gisbrough Hall in North Yorkshire. Its location, food, accommodation and wonderful staff are all excellent. We were wonderfully impressed also with the Langrish House in Hampshire; it is in a good location, but its outstanding features are the food and staff. The variety, standard of cuisine and attentive staff is impressive and we were thoroughly delighted. Another outstanding hotel is Washbourne Court in Gloucestershire. Here again the food was excellent, the staff most competent and welcoming and the accommodation luxurious. All in all, we had an excellent week’s break with CountryClubuk.’ November 2009

Roger and Marion Simpson
‘Thank you, CountryClubuk and the Blackaddie House Hotel at Sanquhar, for what turned out to be an exceptional prize of a night’s accommodation, including dinner and breakfast.  We are familiar with the lower part of Nithsdale, but have  rarely ventured as far up Upper Nithsdale as Sanquhar. It was therefore an added pleasure to discover the Blackaddie House so close to our regular haunts. The hotel is comfortable and is in the process of being gradually refurbished to a very high standard. The dinner was, to put it simply, outstandingly good. The food is backed up by a well-chosen selection of wines.  It would have been memorable anywhere, but in the surroundings of Nithsdale, it was unbeatable.  It was easy to see why Ian McAndrew had been awarded a Michelin star in one of his earlier endeavours. We were made to feel very welcome, and we will definitely be returning. We would recommend the Blackaddie House, without any ifs, buts or maybes, to anyone who is looking for comfort, service and exceptional food in an attractive and very interesting corner of Scotland.’ June 2009

Mrs S, Cleveland
‘Thank you for arranging our recent visit to the beautiful Kempinski Dukes Palace hotel in Bruges. We arrived as tired bedraggled travellers and were treated like royalty from the first moment. Our room had been upgraded to a suite and I can genuinely say that this was one of the most luxurious yet friendly hotels I have ever had the privilege of staying in. I would urge you to encourage your members to take advantage of this amazing deal while it lasts and I would also encourage countryClubuk themselves to source more offers from this high quality chain.’ August 2008

Mr S Kettley, Northamptonshire
‘The Victoria Palace in Paris is top class. The hotel is perfect, I could not fault anything. The staff were so helpful and booked our river trip, taxis and shows. I would recommend this to any CountryClubuk member wanting to stay in Paris.’

Lilian Fonseca, London
'As a new Member, I would like to compliment the Club on the high levels of courtesy from Member Services. I very much enjoyed the dinner at the Criterion followed by The 39 Steps. The service was excellent and the play was brilliant.'

Mr Simon Barnett, Aberdeenshire
‘We had a wonderful stay at The Lamb at Hindon. The welcome and service were top notch and a step up from the best I have had elsewhere. The hotel was very comfortable and had bags of character, and was set in a very picturesque village. Friends joined us for lunch at the hotel and their 8 year old said it was the best hotel he had ever been in! Our thanks to CountryClubuk because we only picked this hotel because their offer was featured in your magazine. I'd also like to feed back that my wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Royal Scots Club in Edinburgh; again we felt very "at home" and just wished we had longer to enjoy it. It is very well located and we will certainly use the Club again when we visit Edinburgh.’

Mr B, Buckinghamshire

‘We recently went to Westlodge Park. It was very nice. Good Location, very close to London and it had 35 acres of ground. It was like being in the country! Staff were very good and the food was great. It was a very good deal actually.’

Mr Kiely, Essex
On Saturday 27/05, my wife and I attended a wedding in Warwick Street with reception at the RA on Burlington Gdns. This made the Fox an ideal location and it added to the enjoyment of the weekend. It was my first visit to the club and it won't be the last as it is a most charming place, with lovely rooms and a real cosy feel about it. It was so much nicer than staying in the usual branded places like The Hilton. The lady on reception was excellent and looked after us to the 'nth' degree.’

Mr Pearce, Warwickshire
‘Reads, Mallorca was superb, one of the best places I have ever been and I will return time and time again. the hotel is tremendous and the food is superb. I have absolutely no reservations about recommending this hotel, although I wouldn't want to spoil the secret!’

P.B, North Yorkshire
‘I ordered some Champagne on Monday 26th September and asked that it be delivered if at all possible before 3rd October, I just want to thank you very much for your very prompt service it arrived yesterday Wednesday 28th and must say it is rather lovely!’

M. Hunter, Northamptonshire

‘I stayed at Maes-y-Neuad as recommended in the magazine - it is indeed an excellent hotel with wonderful food and well worth the membership fee on its' own!’

C May, Surrey
‘My compliments to yourselves and Lindeth Howe. The staff were very attentive and made us feel very much at home, the food was superb and the accommodation was lovely.’

P.C, Surrey
‘Thank you to CountryClubuk for helping with my booking for the weekend just gone. Penny and I had a perfect weekend staying at the St James's Club, helped by the lovely fizz that we found in our room on Friday evening when we arrived. Thank you SO much!! The Club was excellent. Although we had been there a number of times for coffee, dinner etc, this was the first time we had stayed there. We found it very relaxing and the staff were brilliant. It seemed to have a completely different, more homely atmosphere to a hotel. Anyway, I think you get the message!! We had a great anniversary and I’m now trying to think of a good excuse to go again before next year!’

‘Thank you very much for my free gift of the lovely three-strand Majorcan pearls, I am delighted with them.’

Mr Laskey
‘We stayed at Dukes—a lovely little hotel in a beautiful building, The staff are delightful and very polite. The service is excellent and there is lovely food. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.’

M. Tremlett, London
‘I recently booked Richard II through CountryClubuk. For £55 we got tickets to the show, a programme, a meal and drinks. It was such value for money! Kevin Spacey's performance was brilliant! We had a fabulous night and I definitely recommend it to other CountryClubuk members.’

Mrs Hurrell, East Sussex
‘We were very impressed with the deal at the Hotel Urban. A really hip hotel – very stylish, excellent service and quite superb food. Bearing in mind it was 32°C at 7pm, the rooftop swimming pool was a godsend too! One thing that seemed over and above the norm was the gourmet dinner. In our experience when a meal is included it’s from a restricted menu and things like aperitifs and coffee are extra, which is fair do's. Not at the Urban – we had the full menu to select from (I could have had the caviar) and the champagne beforehand was included too! Excellent.’

P. L. Wirral, Cheshire
‘Fawsley Hall was wonderful, with lovely rooms and great service. It was a great change from where we normally go on holidays. The fact you get an upgrade through CountryClubuk makes a tremendous difference. I've never had a better bedroom in my life, and I'm normally a very critical man! The hotel was exceptionally good. The stay exceeded my expectations! We will definitely be using the Club again.’

Mr Broadbent, Cheshire
‘The ease whilst I was overseas to make a booking for an American hotel was amazingly straightforward! The people were very helpful. A bit too easy in fact—it was all an email and a phone call away!’

Mrs Lilford, Hampshire
‘I enjoyed the Grange Rochester so much. From there we could view all the sites of London quite easily. The hotel was charming, the service was lovely and we loved the cosy atmosphere. We found it nice and warm and intimate. We were very happy with our choice.’

Mr Halliday, County Down
‘I am continuing to enjoy my membership with the Club. All of the breaks so far have been first class!’

Mr Bunyan, North Lincolnshire
‘We joined because a friend is a member and we always found it hard to come up with ideas on where to go for holidays and short breaks. We found CountryClubuk great for sourcing ideas on where we should go. It has proved to be very beneficial to us.’

Mr Hadfield, Buckinghamshire
‘Lindeth Howe was probably one of the best hotels I’ve been to. It was probably better than a lot of the more expensive, bigger hotels we have stayed at because it was so personal. I would recommend it to anybody.’

Mr David Crowe, Nottingham
‘The Club offers excellent value and access to a very high standard of service to those who are interested in accessing a high-quality lifestyle. I have now given a corporate gift subscription to a client and will definitely do so for others!’

E.G., East Sussex
‘We were delighted with Chateau La Chaire in Jersey. They could not have looked after us better. It had a delightful country atmosphere, and very attentive and efficient staff. I have told all of my friends! I would never have found it without CountryClubuk.’

East Sussex
“We stayed at Botley Park near Southampton and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The best thing about it was that there was a spa in the hotel. I particularly enjoyed the facials, massages, manicures and pedicures and the staff were lovely. It even had a golf course! We had such a nice time.” 23/6/2005

Mr and Mrs Waters – Essex
“We stayed at the Otterburn Tower in Northumberland and we thought it was lovely. There was nice attention to detail and the food was lovely. The people that run the place were thoroughly pleasant!” 23/6/2005

Nickie Collins, Somerset
"We stayed at the St James’s Club overnight over a weekend and we really loved it. It was a home away from home! There were lovely staff and facilities. We are looking forward to going back again." 23/6/2005

Commander Graham
"I am very happy with Country Illustrated magazine and very impressed that there is a magazine that prides itself on writing about country issues and country life." 23/6/2005

S.M. Cornwall
‘I bought the cashmere cape in black which I love and I got it at a great discount. I love looking at the buys because I think that the Club have some great discounts—I was going to buy the cape from elsewhere, but got it at a big discount from CountryClubuk. I found ordering through the Member Services team very efficient and they were very friendly. I think the magazine has quality with things of interest and is of great value.’

Mr B Atkinson, Cumbria
‘I booked one of the holidays to Geneva though the Club that was listed in the magazine. I found booking it through the Member Services team very quick and efficient.’

A N Henderson, Selkirkshire
‘We are enjoying CountryClubuk very much. My husband surprised me at Christmas time and brought me the complete set of pearls. I love them—they're beautiful! My husband also said that the service was excellent. We fully intend to use the Club in the future.’

Barry Rogers, Wiltshire
‘I recently purchased a VW Golf Motor Car through the Club and am writing to express my enormous satisfaction with the way the transaction was conducted. The representative was in regular touch regarding availability, delivery date and time and all promises were met. The driver made several telephone calls on his way to delivery and was most polite and efficient at all times.’

J L, West Sussex
‘The team at CountryClubuk are excellent. They were very efficient. It has all worked splendidly. We love the magazine. We're so busy, I do wish we had more time to use it.’

J.Boileau, Herefordshire
‘When we come to London we always stay at the Grange Rochester. It is very convenient. CountryClubuk is a marvellous, first-class idea. Someone has gone around finding these wonderful places and that's very commendable. We suggest the club to friends and all the time because we see how much money they spend when they come to London, and suggest how much they can save through CountryClubuk!’

S.H., Hertfordshire
‘I have found booking and ordering through the club easy, efficient and very helpful. I love the professional and personable approach of the Member Services team!’

R J Wade
‘Thanks to CountryClubuk for your recommendation of a free break at The Penventon Hotel in Cornwall. We spent several days there and I've never before commented on a hotel (I'm 77 years old!), but the service, accommodation, facilities and food were outstanding in every way. The hotel was in a perfect location to explore Cornwall. I hope that you continue with this excellent offer, for which my wife, myself—and our dog—thank you!’

Mr George Lennie MBE, Salisbury
‘It's a marvellous service. It shines above all the other magazines and clubs I have come across. The presentation of the magazine and the information are highly professional.’

E. U, Lancashire
‘The Club really gets you out and about. It's a great chance to see hotels you wouldn't think of booking. The staff and situation at Lindeth Howe in Windermere are first class.’

Jennifer Fawcett, North Yorkshire
‘I would definitely recommend Lindeth Howe to anybody! The food was out of this world. Absolutely wonderful!’

Mrs Palmer, Kent
‘I love all of it - the whole idea is brilliant! There is a wonderful selection of holidays, and free breaks that don't break the bank! I love the competitions. Lovely, friendly and helpful service. There is a wonderful range of things in the club to treat yourself with!’

Hans Jurgen Blanckenburg, London
‘It was a very pleasant experience staying at the Phyllis Court in Henley-on-Thames. We had a bottle of champagne with iced strawberries, a wonderful dinner with a bottle of red wine and excellent, friendly service and a very large room overlooking the Thames. Well done to CountryClubuk and Phyllis Court!’

Dr Baxter-Jones, Surrey
‘St James’s Club is a nice relaxing environment. It's hidden away and generally away from the hustle and bustle of the west end. I can relax there with my visitors and have a nice relaxed conversation. The service and food are really very good.’

S. L, London
‘I enjoy the club very much. Very nice selection of hotels, very good deals and service!’

Mr and Mrs Hurrell, East Sussex
‘The chalets at La Tania were superb. The staff there looked after us very well, it really made our holiday. They even got up extra early to make us an early morning breakfast on our last day – beyond the call of duty!’

Mr Newby, North Yorkshire
‘I am very satisfied with CountryClubuk. There is quite a few things to learn from it! Very interesting items and very good reading. I am a country person myself and I think that it portrays a very interested perspective. The service I have received so far has been brilliant! I will definitely be renewing my membership!’

Mr Hutchinson, Cheshire
‘We found Lumley Castle a most comfortable and atmospheric place to spend our short break in the north east. The staff are helpful and courteous and the dining is most agreeable. We will definitely return.’

Sir Chetwynd Talbot, Staffordshire
‘The Otterburn Tower was very nice. The staff were lovely and kind. They had very comfortable rooms and it was in a very nice area. We enjoyed it very much.’

David Griffiths, Wiltshire
‘Having been a member of CountryClubuk for several years now, I wish to express my gratitude to all staff involved for all the wonderful professional work undertaken and the marvellous club offers presented to the membership. I unequivocally commend membership to this vibrant organisation.’
