This place is a total curate's egg - good in parts... in fact great in parts and really poor in others. Let me sum things up:- If you are thinking of coming to a luxury country house hotel where you can put your feet up and be waited on hand and foot for a few days, then this is not... More

Thanks to all the team at the Rectory! My wife and I had a lovely 2 night break here for our 10th anniversary. It is such a lovely well looked after hotel with fabulous grounds and lovely comfortable rooms. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the place as you can come and go as you please. The pool area was... More

Really fed up with trying to book here, for a meal or to stay as they let wedding parties have the whole hotel for the WHOLE weekend - including 4 days over Easter. Jut wanted dinner this time but friends wanted to stay and could not. I think they should make this clear on the website. I guess its a... More

We first stayed here last October when we rated it excellent, and we were really looking forward to staying again.. How sad then that this time we are only giving it an average rating. We arrived mid afternoon on one of the hottest days of the year and then spent a very welcome couple of hours by the pool. Having... More

We first stayed here last October when we gave it an excellent rating. Sadly our return visit didn't live up to the last one. We arrived on one of the hottest days of the year and so were able to spend a pleasant couple of hours by the pool.after changing for dinner, my husband went ahead to the pub over... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the trip, despite the crummy weather. The hotel is quirky and beautifully designed which gives it all its charm. The number of rooms and the lay out mean it's never chaotic and you can escape upstairs to the large room and feel like you're the only people in the hotel, except... More

A great small hotel in a fantastic setting. "Shabby chic" has been used to describe the Rectory in previous reviews and I think it sums it up perfectly, although no criticism is intended! Our room 'Belas Knap' was comfortable and there was plenty of room for a travel cot and our small dog! Special mention has to go to the... More

Rectory Hotel is like staying in someone's very lovely and very large house. The whole place has a homely feel, from the friendly welcome through to the comfy lounge complete with fireside games and fantastic rooms (amazing bath too!) The hotel was very quiet when we stayed - we were in fact the only people eating dinner one night. We... More
