“Nice rooms, but a bit Falty Towers-esque!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2011

We stayed one night after a wedding at Fawsley Hall and the rooms and setting are lovely and its a great price - great for groups and if you only need a bed for the night it's ok. The room wasnt dirty but the bathroom did look like it needed a better clean and the carpet was really stained but generally the rooms are really nice.

The breakfast was a bit of a let down, after a big night out we were looking forward to a full english but they are very small breakfasts and we literally got one slice if mushroom and five beans on our plate with an egg, sausage and piece of bacon. The chap serving clearly wanted to be elsewhere and requests for extra tea and toast were met with a big sigh.

That said - for a room after a wedding at nearby fawsley hall - it's a great crash pad but I wouldnt bother getting up for breakfast!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2010

The Granary is set in rolling countryside round the back of Fawsley Hall. The location is beautiful and very rural. Also very quiet. The rooms open off a sort of internal courtyard, so you can come back very late without worrying about disturbing others. It all looks pretty recently renovated. The price was also good. What let it down was cleanliness/tidiness. One of our party found a chip (i.e. from a fish and chip shop) on their bedside table, there were cobwebs in our room and at breakfast our crockery was not properly clean. Also we had three small towels for a room of three people. We were a big group crashing there after a big night out so we just wanted a bed, but for a special getaway it would be a bit disappointing. The owner mentioned some staffing problems so it might be better in a few months.
