Overall, we had a nice stay here for the Calkfiller dinner a few weeks ago. The grounds are very nice, the food is excellent, and the service is good too. I loved the bacon at breakfast--might be the best bacon I've ever had.
My only complaint was that the rooms (for the price), leave a little to be desired. They smell funny (so much so that the Inn has put air fresheners in every room that make them smell a little like a truck stop bathroom). Also, the shower in our room did not drain well, so after about 1 minute in the shower, the tub portion had about an inch of standing water in it. Maybe that was why our shower was mildewy?
