The person who took our booking (with a gift voucher) was a bit grumpy - pointing to the small print of the voucher conditions rather than making us feel he'd like to host us. The room (New England) had old-fashioned character. Comfortable bed and adequate shower-and-wash room - only adequate as squeezed into existing room, and small. The room was... More

Thank you for your review. It is correct that there was a problem with our heating on one of the nights of your stay. As soon as we knew that the heating was not working we got our engineer in the following morning and the problem was rectified by 10AM. I was away at the time and my staff should... More

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely guest house. It is very well looked after, with great people doing that great job. The room we had, New England was very nice and well maintained. The location was beautiful, with such beautiful views. This is a place that we would love to visit again.

Having stayed in so many 'plastic hotels' and samey chains, with their corporate decor and predictable service, the Cardynham House was a real breath of fresh air. Wonderful welcome, the quirkiest hotel we've ever stayed in, and just wonderful. It felt as though we were staying at a friend's house ... totally relaxed, friendly and lovely. The staff - who...

We arrived last Friday for two nights and found the staff very friendly and offering a warm welcome. We booked a table for two in the bistro that evening. We both had three courses from an excellent selection of set menu and specials which included some interesting choices like wildboar and a game trio. The food was exceptional with very... More

We stayed at the Cardynham last weekend for 2 nights. My partner had booked the pool room as a surprise for my 40th birthday. We were not disappointed. As soon as we arrived our bags were wrestled out of our hands as we were shown to our room and given instructions on using the pool. The room was lovely, warm,... More

Nice place, good welcome perfect to get away from it all to relax. Rooms all have character, didn't, eat in the restaurant but looked good. Breakfasts nice, well cooked and tasted fine. I would recommend this hotel.

If you want a porter at reception to carry your bags,champagne drinks on arrival, monsoon showers in the bathroom, butler service to provide bed tea in the mornings & turn on the room heaters, high tea in the...

I am sorry that this guest felt the need to post this review. I spoke to them on departure and they made no mention that they were not satisfied with their stay in any way. We do source our ingredients locally wherever possible but we are in a rural location - our croissants are supplied part baked and frozen but... More

Just spend one night at this B & B with my husband and sister and brother-in-law. We stayed in the Dovecote room and they were in the Old Tuscany. Both rooms were lovely, our was particularly large as it was a family room. Lovely comfortable beds - however the bathroom was very cramped and quite cold. Car parking quite difficult... More
