“short break at rookery manor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

we stayed in the old manor house we had a room with a balcony not huge but nicely done and comfortable, we were looked after by very young staff in the bistro who were very polite and helpful the food each evening was great, good value for money. we only have one negaitive thing to say the road noise was off putting as it was hot when we stayed and needed to have the windows open, in winter it would not be a problem. Overall very nice.

Room Tip: try to get a room in the Manor house as it has the best views over the garden

We stayed for one night with friends as part of a Travelzoo offer and overall considered it was good value for the money we paid. The reception felt like a visit to a garden centre as it was in a conservatory attached to a building - strange. However, check in was easy and we were allocated adjoining rooms in the Lodge. Our advice is don't unload your car until you've checked in as the lodge is a fair trek but fortunately there's plenty of parking and you can drive round. The lodge is new and has 6 rooms - 3 upstairs and 3 down,. The rooms are obviously not as grand as in the main building but there's a plus side - you cannot hear the M5 traffic and if it's a warm night the patio doors can be opened. For us, this was a better option than the main building.

I have to ask:

1. Why only 5 mismatched hangers in the wardrobe?
2. Why place the soap holder right next to the shower head resulting in it being continuously flooded?

The bed was really comfortable for us and in fact (for us) better than much higher starred establishments we've stayed at.

The restaurant is near the main building and so a bit of a hike. The bar has no beer on tap and only one bottled variety of ale (disappointing Doombar) but the bar/waitress staff were friendly and engaging. Yes, there was a bit of a wait for food to arrive but it didn't bother us. When it did arrive the food was good quality and there were no complaints (except for the lack of cheese and biscuit offering?). Breakfast was a strange arrangement whereby you went to the hotplate to be served - most places are now help yourself. The conservatory eating area does get hot in the morning and so our advice is to sit away from the windows.

Overall this was a good value stay and we would happily consider another visit.

Room Tip: although not as grand as the main house, we preferred the lodge as there was minimal road noise and...

Just had a two night weekend break here and was very pleased to be given a room in the Old Manor, next to the Bridal Suite - which the young couple staying there showed us and it is a great room! Unfortunately, our bathroom door didn't shut but luckily we have been married 29 years and could cope with holding the door during the 'embarrassing' toilet visits! The shower room was small but adequate and nicely done - the towels were very thick and white and the Elemis products were superb. Our room was spotless and comfortable and had a lovely shared balcony with next door overlooking the fantastic gardens. A BIG downside was the traffic noise from the M5 which has to be expected in holiday season but with the sweltering weather, we had to keep the windows wide open. The noise was continuous and if we had a 5 second break, it was wonderful! Not the hotel's fault though is it. Breakfast was fine but more staff could have been useful on Sunday morning - the excellent staff were a bit like headless chickens when the Bistro was full!
The hotel is very geared towards weddings and it was a relief they didn't have one last weekend as we would have felt out of place - perhaps best to check if you are planning on staying. Would be a lovely setting, if noisy, for a wedding and the photos would be superb!

We did enjoy our stay although no bar during the Saturday afternoon - or no staff in sight to serve from the Bistro bar - and we had come back to sit and have a drink in the garden area.

Would go again but only in the winter months when the motorway is a bit quieter and windows can be kept closed!

Room Tip: Room 22 is lovely and was the room we wanted when we saw the pictures so we felt lucky to get it! A...

Fantastic place to escape to. Lovely spacious rooms, brilliant spa , lovely gardens and great food. Takes a bit to find but well worth the effort. Excellent venue for a wedding. Altogether a great experience. We would definitely come back again .

My daughter had her wedding held here. Myself, daughter and 2 bridesmaids stayed here the night before the wedding in 2 rooms in the old manor. Rooms named after wedding anniversaries-nice touch. Rooms was clean, comfortable but I think overpriced. Breakfast nice but expected better given the price you pay. We asked for poached eggs as it says eggs done to your liking or words to that effect. Told by waitress that she would ask the chef if he/she had time to do this as they were very busy. We just looked around the room in amazement as there were more empty tables than full ones. Anyway we did get the poached eggs.
Day of the wedding- couldn't fault the wedding planner and staff all went smoothly.
Lovely location for a wedding. Wedding breakfast very nice and really good portions. Many guests stayed the night and all said rooms was clean and comfortable.
I have read other reviews and a lot said it was noisy from the traffic on the M5. I didn't hear any traffic on my 2 night stay but it was in April so motorway not so busy. All in all a lovely location for a wedding, lovely gardens for photos, nice big marquee for guests if weather not too good and big function rooms.

A last minute decision to go away for a night and we had a quick look on late rooms and found Rookery manor, we paid £75 B&B basis for an en suite double king size bed, arrived and eventually got into the hotel and as we were late arriving we had to go into the main bar/restaurant, lack of signs meant we walked through the fire exit into the restaurant. Booked in and went to our room, not what i classed as 4*. Curtains just about covered the window and hooks missing. Very stiffling room, small windows only 1 opened as 1 painted shut but had a gap all the way round which could mean it being chilly in winter. Very good size bathroom though. Towels provided but a bit shabby and fraying round the edge. King size bed definitely not, my partner fell out of bed twice!!! Decided we wanted to make the most of the sun and being kid free so decided to see if we could stay another night but move room. Reception were brilliant, I had found i could rebook on last minute for 67.50, mentioned we would like to stay another night and they said they would change our rooms. WOW they certainly upgraded us, put us in main manor house, 4 poster bed, lovely size room with 2 brilliant comfy chairs and an outlook over the pond and gardens which are really well kept. The bathroom was brilliant a power shower, normal bits and pieces and a lovely size spa bath. We used the spa facilities and had a treatment each. We then had a meal in the restaurant on the evening, it was lovely so filling we couldn't even eat a sweet which is shocking for us, not badly priced, 2 starters, 2 mains, large glass of wine, pint of cider and 2 bailey's was about £42 all in. Staff were so friendly from waiters/ress grounds man and those on reception, a little more training for couple of members of staff that we dealt with but we put down to inexperience. Spa was lovely and again staff helpful and pleasant. Couple of minor points, glasses should of been collected at end of night not the following morning, a little TLC to the standard rooms, feather duster etc. Overall would we go back, YES, we can't wait!!!

Room Tip: Manor house is definitely the best place to stop although more expensive, what was weird though it w...
