Arrived on friday to be met by enthusiastic staff and a glass of prosecco. We were shown to our room, which was the most comfortable room I have ever been in. Complementary teas and coffees made better with fresh milk in the fridge, a beautiful view with plenty of reading material and a jacuzzi and huge walk in shower! Diana... More

We arrived on the Friday afternoon after a long journey and were welcomed by Diana who offered us a complimentary glass of prosecco. We were then shown to our room, the Captain Oates Room. On the way to our room, Diana told... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while attending a wedding in the area - We were delighted to be greeted at the end of a long journey with a friendly smiling Diana offering us a glass of sparkling wine. I spoke to Diana quite a few times during the booking process (as we had specific needs due to travelling with... More

We stayed in the Samuel Courtauld room following a sumptuous meal at the Pheasant restaurant. The room was beautifully decorated, to the highest standards and with impeccable taste. We slept so soundly in the super-comfy bed! The bathroom was lovely and the shower excellent. The view from the window reminded us that we were in the middle of the beautiful... More

Situated in lovely countryside the Pheasant is an old pub with a modern building at the rear containing 5 rooms. We stayed in the Thomas Gainsborough room which is a very large and comfortable ground floor room with a super king size bed and sofa and french doors on to a small patio with table and seats. The room has... More

I booked a two-night break through Secret Escapes which included breakfast & dinner on both days, plus a glass of prosecco and cream tea on arrival. We were contacted beforehand by Diana to confirm our dinner bookings for both nights (the restaurant section only has a few covers) and was given a helpful warning not to mix up our Audley... More

Having read a number of reviews about this Hotel and finding them to be so positive, I must say I am very disappointed in the Hotel. Having stayed in one of the suites for one night I feel that it is overpriced and a complete let down. I also have my concerns about the fact that despite the 'hotel' part... More

Booked this break through Groupon. 2 days in June, Monday and Tuesday. We were treated by an extremely friendly bar maid who made us feel very welcome. We checked into our room called Captain Oates. This was a very clean, modern and spacious room. After unpacking, we arranged to have our cream tea at the bar, which was delicious. We... More

We had a very enjoyable two day break. James and Diana made us very welcome, and after afternoon cream tea we were shown to our suite (Gainsborough) the room was very clean and comfortable with doors opening out onto a secluded little garden area. We had excellent meals on both nights and the breakfasts were very good. We Chose this... More
