Originally booked into an associated hotel that suddenly found they could not accommodate us we ended up at the Claydon Country House Hotel. On appearance, we thought oh oh! No need to worry, all was good on checking in and a late roast lunch proved excellent.
Our room at the front of the hotel was standard in size, quite clean and with precious little water pressure. A noisy room as it was, makes me wonder why they hive such accommodation off first when they know it will not please too many folk to be woken by motorbikes screaming past in the wee hours. There were plenty of rooms available towards the rear.
Breakfast was first class and the staff very pleasant. Evening meals were very good and whilst there is a slightly cheaper meal option over the road it is not worth the walk.
Laundry items a bit expensive but unavoidable I suppose.
The bottom line, as always is:- would we stay again? Yes, now we know more - definitely asking for a room away from the front.
