‘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! Lovely, friendly and helpful service. There is a wonderful range of things in the Club to treat yourself with!’

Mrs Palmer, Kent

One of the best investments we have made in a while’

‘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.’

SKS London

‘You made my special two days in Paris magical’

‘Thank you, the Saint James and CountryClubuk, for making my special two days in Paris magical. You looked after us amazingly. You were kind and thoughtful. We will definitely return.’

MM, London

‘Very impressive: well done CCUK’

‘I needed help with organising a two-day visit by Belgian clients in London and was at a loss as to where to go, which would be a change for them—they come occasionally to London anyway. CCUK were fantastic and not only made intelligent suggestions within my budget, but booked everything for the party of four—the hotel, the restaurants and gave me excellent guidance on which of the Thames cruises to take them on. So impressed were they that one has become a Member. Oh, and they loved this particular London trip. Very impressive; well done CCUK.’

JH, London

‘And all at a price only Club Membership can provide’

‘We have just experienced one of our most enjoyable evenings out this year courtesy of CountryClubuk. An excellent three-course dinner in the Savoy Hotel London with service one always hopes for, followed by cabaret featuring The ‘Kroks’, an ‘a cappella’ group of 12 Harvard students and graduates on their last stop of a world tour . . . a very novel and amusing entertainment. And all at a price only Club Membership can provide.’

Raymond Rice, Hertfordshire

‘First port of call for a holiday or a decent bottle of wine’

‘Very professional and good value. Usually my first port of call for a holiday or a decent bottle of wine.’

B Clifford, London

D Griffiths, Wiltshire:

‘Splendid day at Guards Polo Club’

‘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.’

M & GB, Norfolk

‘Fantastic job by the Club at the last minute’

‘Great hotel—thanks for arranging it. Highly recommended! Fantastic job by the Club at the last minute. Much appreciated.’

CK Yorkshire

The Fitzrovia Hotel was perfect: just what I needed

The Fitzrovia Hotel was just what I needed with its clean and tidy layout, all well organised and full of friendly help. I needed somewhere central, efficient and calm and the Fitzrovia hotel was perfect. The atmosphere was pleasant and relaxing. I would definitely return, very happily.

Julia Hart, Oxfordshire

‘Happy to report an excellent trip’

‘I am happy to report the excellence of the trip you organised for us. The hotel was of the highest standard, the staff friendly and helpful, the food passed all tests and the ballet evening lived up to expectations. Many thanks.’

TG, Buckinghamshire

‘Chauffeur car wonderful, got us to the train in excellent time’

‘Thank you so much CountryClubuk. Chauffeur car 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.’

MD, South Yorkshire

‘The trip was lovely, it went like clockwork’

‘The Battle of Britain trip 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.’

Vicky Hodge, Hertfordshire

‘We would recommend this to anybody’

‘Thank you so much for organising our trip to Lake Annesy. The hotel was wonderful, the views fantastic, absolutely as described. We would recommend this break to anybody.’

SO, London

‘Delightful in every way’

‘The hotel you recommended is the tops! 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.’

IA, Leicestershire,

‘We love the Club’s Free Breaks Portfolio’

‘Our favourite of your Free Breaks Portfolio is Grinkle Park in North Yorkshire. Its location, food, accommodation and wonderful staff are all excellent. We were wonderfully impressed also with the Old Swan in Harrogate; it is in a good location, but its outstanding features are the staff. All in all, we had an excellent week’s break with CountryClubuk.’

BW, Nottinghamshire,

‘Unbeatable stay at Blackaddie House’

Thank you, CountryClubuk and the Blackaddie House Hotel at Sanquhar, for what turned out to be an exceptional 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 being 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.’

R & MS, Yorkshire

‘Upgraded to a suite thanks to CountryClubuk’

‘Thank you for arranging our recent visit to the beautiful Kempinski Dukes Palace hotel in Bruges. We were treated like royalty from the first moment. Our room was upgraded to a suite thanks to CountryClubuk 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 urge you to encourage your Members to take advantage of this amazing deal while it lasts.’

Mrs S, Cleveland:

‘Top class in Paris: I could not fault a thing’

‘Your Paris hotel suggestion 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 recommend this to any CountryClubuk Member wanting to stay in Paris.’

Mr S Kettley, Northamptonshire

‘Such a great CountryClubuk deal’

‘As a new Member, I would like to compliment the Club on the high levels of courtesy from Member Services. I very much enjoyed dinner at the Criterion followed by the theatre, at such a great CountryClubuk deal. The service was excellent and the play was brilliant.’

Lilian Fonseca, London

‘We’ll certainly use the Club again’

‘We had a wonderful stay in the country. 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 it 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 Simon Barnett, Aberdeenshire

‘The Club made our wedding trip’

‘My wife and I attended a wedding in Warwick Street with reception at the RA on Burlington Gdns. This made the Fox Club an ideal location through CountryClubuk 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. The lady on reception was excellent and looked after us to the ‘nth’ degree.’

Mr Kiely, Essex,

‘Tremendous hotel and the food is superb’

‘Your Mallorca hotel was superb, one of the best places I have ever been. I have absolutely no reservations about recommending CountryClubuk, although I wouldn’t want to spoil the secret!’

Mr S Pearce, Warwickshire

‘Thank you CountryClubuk for the prompt service—and Champagne’

‘I ordered some Champagne on 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!’

PB, North Yorkshire

‘Excellent Free Break Hotel, well worth the Membership fee’

‘I stayed at a Free Break Hotel as recommended in the CountryClubuk magazine—it is indeed an excellent hotel with wonderful food and well worth the Membership fee on its’ own!’

M Hunter, Northamptonshire

‘Compliments to CountryClubuk and Lindeth Howe’

‘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.’

C May, Surrey

‘Perfect weekend at the St James’s Club’

‘Thank you to CountryClubuk for helping with my booking for the weekend just gone. We 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!’

AJ, Dorset

‘Delighted with my lovely three-strand pearls’

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

PC, Surrey

‘Dukes London: I would not hesitate to recommend’

‘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.’

Mr Laskey, Surrey

‘A fabulous night, and such value for money through the Club’

‘I 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.

M Tremlett, London

‘Gourmet dinner at no extra cost’

‘Very impressed with the CountryClubuk deal in Spain. 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 through CountryClubuk—we had the full menu to select from (I could have had the caviar) and the Champagne beforehand was included too! Excellent.’

Mrs Hurrell, East Sussex

‘Exceeded my expectations!’

‘Fawsley Hall was wonderful, with lovely rooms and great service. 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.’

PL, Cheshire

‘It’s all just an email or a phone call away’

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

Mr J Broadbent, Cheshire

‘Happy with the Rochester, and our special rate through CountryClubuk’

‘I enjoyed the 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, and our special rate through CountryClubuk.’

Mrs Lilford, Hampshire

‘Enjoying my Membership—first class!’

‘I am continuing to enjoy my Membership with the Club. All of the breaks so far have been first class!’

Mr Halliday, County Down

‘CountryClubuk has proved to be very beneficial to us’

‘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 Bunyan, North Lincolnshire

‘Lindeth Howe, it’s the best—and so is the Club deal!’

‘Lindeth Howe was one of the best, 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, and the CountryClubuk Free Break deal is superb.’

Mr P Hadfield, Buckinghamshire

‘The Club offers excellent value and access to a high quality lifestyle’

‘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!’

D Crowe, Nottingham

‘Delightful hotel: I would never have found it without CountryClubuk’

‘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.’

EG, East Sussex

‘The St James’s Club, we really loved it’

‘Love my cashmere cape—great discount from CCUK’

‘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.’

‘CountryClubuk is a marvellous, first-class idea’

‘When we come to London we always stay at the Rochester through CountryClubuk. 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 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!’

‘Thanks to the Club for our free break in Cornwall’

‘Thanks to CountryClubuk for your recommendation of a break in Cornwall. We spent several days there and I’ve never before commented on a hotel, 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!’

R J Wade

‘It’s a marvellous service: it shines above all others’

GL, Salisbury

‘The Club gives you a great chance to discover first class hotels’

‘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.’

E U, Lancashire

‘Absolutely wonderful Lindeth Howe in the Lakes’

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

J Fawcett, North Yorkshire

‘Well done to CountryClubuk’

‘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!’

Hans Jurgen Blanckenburg, London

‘I can relax at the St James’s Club with my visitors’

Mr Newby, North Yorkshire

‘The whole trip to St Petersburg was a great success’

‘Safely home after a memorable few days organised by CountryClubuk in St Petersburg, Russia. The Opening Night of the Swan Lake Ballet was perfect, the hotel (Belmond Hotel Grand Europe) was first class. Very nice rooms and charming staff. Couldn’t have been more kindly, smiley, friendly and helpful. We did a Hermitage tour with an excellent private guide arranged by the hotel. Flights comfortable and on time. The whole trip was very happy and a great success. Thank you so much.’
