After a poor stay in a hotel within Atherstone, I thought I'd chance another location, but made a mistake in believing they did evening meals, too. The landlady did have a series of brochures and pamphlets for some dining places, so there are recommendations for foodies. Although the premesis have a sign outside, I still managed to drive past (the... More

We booked our room. We drove 2 and a bit hours to a hotel with no clear signs on a main road. When we got there, the owner had gone on holiday to Turkey and left the hotel in the very uncapable hands of a random "mate". The 3 rooms had been triple booked. We then sat in a dark... More

This place describes itself as "100 year old country house with charm and an inglenook fire place, set in private grounds". It is in fact immediately on a very busy, noisy, fast road with lorries hurtling along constantly. I insisted that I could not possibly sleep through the noise, so I was rudely told to "go elsewhere or pay extra... More

We have used the Chestnuts for the past 5 years for various Foreign visitors. Without exception they have commented on the very special atmosphere and welcome created by Jenny. Nothing is too much trouble and she is always on hand to give advice on the local area. The breakfast is quite simply the full English at its best! We will... More

What a friendly atmosphere! For someone who travels alone this hotel was a great find. I felt like one of the family with lovely comfy beds and fluffy quilts, lots of hot water, and good home cooked food served by friendly people.
