Invited at wedding next door, this hotel had been recommended to us. The restaurant has a nice choice of wines and attractive menu. The personel is friendly and customer oriented. Please avoir the rooms: not only the walls are very thin and you hear every conversation next door, but the mattress was a pure disaster. It was probably has old... More

The Cartwright Hotel has recently has a full refurbishment - all new fittings incl top quality beds. Thanks for the positive comments and reading between the lines I think the rate is your biggest beef! Saturday only wedding bookings are a challenge as we are unable to sell the Friday night to weekender guests. Hence the premium rate. The Cartwright... More

Visited on a voucher offer which I've had mixed experiences with, however my view has now changed! The hotel is situated in a very pretty village. On arrival..welcoming, friendly staff who couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. Very comfortable clean room, excellent meal in the restaurant..helpful advice on menu and delicious Fillet Rossini. Thanks..will be back.

Having frequented this establishment, old and new for over 20 years all I can say to Janet G is that she has not given the new manager a chance. Having met Johnny I find him an approachable and friendly man with many good ideas. He has taken time to speak to locals and customers and I find him enthusiastic in... More

Just had yet again another delicious lunch at the Cartwright Arms. My family frequent this establishment quite often and are always greeted well by the friendly staff especially Gary, who in my mind should be managing the place as he is brilliant and knows the place better than anyone. Well on this occasion there appears to be a new manager,... More

Apologies Janet that the welcome was not as warm as usual. Johny Richardson is our new manager at The Cartwright and I guess you met him during his first couple of weeks. Believe me, he is a really nice chap, a great chef who worked with us at our Villiers Hotel in Buckingham, and now taking on his first management... More

Spent 4 nights on a business trip. Picturesque from outside but freezing in the room. Layout was unique, so we're the little "friends" I had spending the nights with me. Good kitchen surprisingly! Service however poor & need to improve their speech or language skills.

I'm sorry your four night stay with us was not to your satisfaction - the room you stayed in is very popular with our regular guests but I'm sure we could have found you an alternative if you had requested one. All the rooms are individually designed conforming to listed building standards. Thank you for the compliments re your dining. More

An old coach house hotel, and we stayed here when we were attending a wedding across the road. We had a room in the main hotel rather than the courtyard, and that worked fine; nice big bathroom, and the room was fine too. We stayed for 2 nights but never ate at the hotel, other than for breakfast, which was... More

I stayed here for one night being on a business trip. I was allocated room 8 which is a very big room with a separate sitting area. The room was clean and the décor was ok. What you need to know about this room and the hotel in general: - at an A road which apparently is a short cut... More

A voucher for afternoon tea took us to this hotel. The receptionist was also the waitress, bartender, and perhaps even the sandwich maker! Thankfully it was very quiet. It was all rather disjointed. Being offered tea and coffee to be told the coffee machine wasn't working so it was tea for two. Then the champagne was offered and poured to... More

We were at a family party nearby and booked the Cartwright Hotel because it was so close to the venue. I would never ever stay there again. The room was not luxurious - basic at the best . The distance between the bottom of the bed and the wall made it one at a time past it. We wanted to... More
