Just 20 minutes drive from Bristol, the location and the manor house transport you to the reign of Edward II with authentic architectural features, the stone flagging and magnificent open fire in the entrance hall for example.
Of course electric lights, leather suites and en-suite bathrooms would not have been featured in the 14th century, nevertheless the period feel shines through, and this is the hotel's biggest attraction.
The welcome was friendly and courteous, if a little weary, as if the owners had been through better times and were now 'going through the motions' with weekday hotel guests. The service attentive, but somewhat casual. My room was nice but not immaculate.
The bar is small and limited, but there's a pub within a short walking distance and a good Indian restaurant nearby, where my colleague and I enjoyed our evening meal.
My guess would be that they make their living from weekend events. The photogenic venue lends itself to this.
It's hard to grade such a unique place vs a modern 'business traveller' focused hotel, but it just scrapes four stars from me for its character. Might not be every business traveller's cup of tea, but I could imagine giving it full marks at a wedding event on a glorious sunny weekend!
