My wife has been resident in Steep House since September 2014. I am a frequent visitor there. I consider the care she is given is outstanding. I sense the staff have genuine concern for the well being of residents. My wife is clearly treated with dignity understanding and patience as an individual person with her own particular needs and personality. I find the atmosphere (both literally and metaphorically)) pleasant and welcoming and the staff are remarkably good humoured and cheerful. I have confidence in their work together as a team, cleaners, carers, office staff and manager alike. I am fortunate in having peace of mind that my wife is being well treated there.

My husband was at Steep House for 2 years and 3 months during that time to his demise on the 3rd of January 2016. He had known such kindness, professionalism, care, food and general welfare.
Steep House is exceptional from the kitchen to the manager. The staff support the home with an excellent manner and cannot be faulted. My husband was so well cared for, I thoroughly recommend this home and wish I could do or say more to extol it.

My mother was resident from February 2014 to mid February 2015 when she passed away. Her care at Steep House was very good - staff were kind, caring and attentive. Mum had a lovely room - spacious and well equipped with a lovely view to the trees where wildlife abounded. Mum joined in many of the activities on offer and her needs were well catered for. The family were so pleased that mum's final year was spent at Steep House where she found a high level of care and good companionship.

From my first contact with Steep House I found them very friendly and welcoming, a lovely homely feel to the place. Activities have improved steadily in the 2 years my mother has been there and the staff are always attending residents' needs. Management and nurses are all equally approachable and always give me time.

As the gentleman who has just moved in a friend, I was very impressed with how we were first greeted friendly/professional how our friend has an open bright bedroom, we met staff who had just supported our friend with his personal care. I was very impressed that our friend had had a shave. Lunch was served boor or wine on the table.
Thank you everyone.

Steep House and all the staff are just wonderful. My father is well taken care of, the atmosphere and the meals are great - you should see the "fifties style" Diner and the "forties style" lounge.

My father has been in other care homes for respite before we found Steep and all we did was worry. It is not possible to get in every day, but the peace of mind we have knowing that he is taken care of, just can't be beaten and makes us more relaxed when we do get to visit.

As a relative, you are treated with respect, always asked if you would like a cup of tea, everyone has a smile and the afternoon tea and cake is scrumptious.

There is such a welcoming atmosphere, from when you first step in the door, the rooms are spacious, the staff are jolly - and we all know that it is not an easy job to do. If there are any problems, the staff and management are always available to talk to you and things do get sorted. I can enjoy the time with my father as his daughter and that means the world.

Would I recommend it - totally, as a family would we recommend it - completely and trust me, we are a difficult family to please.
