Sadly, she seems to have abdicated and is no longer a shadow of its former glory. Having stayed at the Coach House on numerous occasions dating back to 1984, we were terribly disappointed to see this wonderful establishment going to seed. On arrival, the all pervasive smell of kitchen drains seems to set the scene, the litter strewn in the garden off the dining terrace, the murky pool and the neglected gardens which were once so beautiful. We move on to the room, with weeds in all the brick pathways along the way, and, there again, empty flower boxes, chipped toilet seat (Room 20), standard lamp with no globe, empty mini-bar - all overlooking the most spectacular views in the background and total neglect in the foreground. As for the once beautiful rose-garden - what a crying shame.
Orion Hotels truly need to increase their maintenance budget as, right now, the Coach House is being rapidly overtaken by other establishments and certainly cannot justify the 4-Star rating it has enjoyed for many years.
