“Lovely time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We went with a voucher and had a brilliant time.

Very friendly staff, Delicious Indian restaurant. We got to stay in the oriental room. Absolutely beautiful, really light and airy.

Wish we could have stayed a little longer :)

Just returned from a nice pleasant weekend away where we stayed at this hotel. Arrived 2ish on Friday had a warm welcome and was pleased that our room was ready. We were given the Morrocan room - if you have this room and there is a party you are above this area and unless you can get asleep with noise blaring this room is not for you.
The shower in this room alsoneeds to be updated
As it is getting colder the room was quite chilly but when we pointed this out we were advised that the heating would be being put on soon. Probably notwhat you need to hear.
The scenery is amazing and the hotel has character, the staircase is amazing and for a wedding would be fantastic photo opportunity,
Breakfast could have been better - it was a hot buffet, the first morning for breakfast we were the last guests down even though we were down at 9.00 and technically breakfast did not end till 10;00 the items in the buffet had been there for quite some time and were not warm.

The next day it was roughly the same but they wer replenishing the food.

On the whole would visit again as good value -on a living social deal and excellent scenery. Staff friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for any other than the morrocan room

I am glad to tell you we have had a brand you bathroom fitted in your room. (113). We have also had a full refurb of the room. However if you do want to stay with us again, please feel free to choose one of our other themed rooms that are very popular as you can see from recent reviews.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the manor soon.

Disappointing, cold main room, no atmosphere due to guest to close together and in different rooms, the curry was plain so not what reviews i read before had ,maybe just unlucky this time. The small bar hopeless for large numbers and the main very cold and dated all over , the shades to small for a very large area, it looked dirty with cobwebs to the ceiling in this area, the floor tiles way not in keeping for a country house. The prices high and the decoration not altered in years to the main areas, is any being put back to improve such a lovely location? could be a greater place. walking in heels from the back car park avoiding potholes with no lighting was very awkward

Thank you for your review however i'm not quite sure what to make of it. In May you wrote a review for us and said "well done for keeping this gem going. Keep at it". Now only 6 months later you are saying the decor hasn't been altered in years????? I can clarify that a lot of work has been done, including work you cant see. We have had a whole new boiler system to help the water and heating in the hotel. The whole roof has been worked on. The restaurant, cocktail bar and TV lounge have had a total refurb as have all the rooms and we will continue making improvements to the building because we love the building and we always want our guests to be happy. However we do understand that you cant please all the people all the time.

We stayed her for a wedding we had been invited to. The grounds were stunning as was the wedding room downstairs. A very nice location to hold a wedding reception. I felt the downstairs had the character I expected for such a venue but once upstairs I felt it needed a facelift.
Our room we stayed in was nothing special not the luxary I thought it would be. The beds were up against the headboard which was hiding a radiator, making our pillows very hot indeed. The bathroom although spacious had a nasty black mould on the top of the wall not a very nice sight when taking a shower!!
The food for the wedding party was nice but could of been hotter, however the evening buffet was very nice indeed. Breakfast wasnt up to much could of been cooked better and a lot hotter than it was. Drinks at the hotel were very expensive also.
Overall a nice stay but could of been better needs a face lift upstairs.

Thank you for your review. It seems in general you had a good stay with us. Regarding the room. From reading your review i think it is 117. This is a twin room and has recently been refurbished with a brand new bathroom consisting of a large walk in shower. I am sure if you come back again, you will approve.

Just a simple overnight trip for business, arriving one evening to get in to work the next day. Friendly greeting on arrival, conversational staff but no fuss. I found the Indian themed room to be clean and spacious, well furnished with 'antique' fixtures, and with a large and quite modern bathroom. Tried the onsite restaurant as it has won awards, despite Indian food not really being my thing, and found the dishes to be very fresh and really quite superb. Nice wine, good waiter. Coffee facilities in room, with decent biscuits. Quick and efficient checkout. An old building retaining most original features, fine staircase, nice panelling, generally unspoilt by modernisation except where neccessary, so just as I like it. One of my better recent stays and nothing for me to criticise, so the full five stars.

Booked for one night's stay at the Court Colman Manor, we were greeted by very friendly reception staff. Our themed room (The Indian) was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The suprise of finding that the bath/shower was as whirlpool bath added to the very wonderful experience.

We dined in the Restaurant and can thoroughly recommend anyone staying at the Manor to sample what is truly mouth melting food.

Due to the weather conditions we were not able to explore the gardens; however, will definitely do so when we next stay at this truly welcoming, friendly hotel.

I stayed at the court Colman manor house as I was invited to a wedding there. The hotel has stunning grounds and views are lovely, and the Hotel itself is beautiful.
We arrived and checked in which was great, staff were friendly and asked if we would like our bags taken to room.
When we got to our room which was very basic and not luxury which I thought it would be I found dust everywhere the room just was not clean!
Bathroom was clean but just felt the room could have done with some TLC for £77 a night room.

Breakfast was ok but not hot! And wallpaper in the breakfast area was all peeling and ripped not a good sight.

I thought the prices on drinks very very expensive but of course you pay it :)

Overall had a good sleep and lovely time at wedding but think hotel needs some attention.

Thank you for reviewing us. We appreciate all our customers comments. I can assure you that we are constantly giving the hotel the attention that you ask for. We will continue to do in the future and im sure if you visit us again you will be happy with the improvements we make.
With regards to the "very, very" expensive drinks you had, im not quite sure what you drank but we are very price competitive with other hotels in the area. Hopefully we will see you back at the manor again.
