We too up our first Travelzoo offer some months ago and booked to a one night visit in November. The hotel is smaller than it looks with just 18-20 bedrooms and large impressive public rooms; the small number of rooms results in good service from fewer staff who multi task and make you feel like a house guest. Despite the fact there was a wedding that night the service in the bar and restaurant was excellent. The staff are unpretentious and relaxed we really enjoyed the light humour, they clearly enjoy their jobs which is so nice to see.
Our courtyard bedroom a few minutes walk away from the hotel was well above the average with every gadget you needed, fresh mik in the fridge and bottled water, the rooms are spacious and well appointed and the parking outside makes everything easy.
We had the 5 course taster menu, the food and service was exceptionally good, first class well presented food, portions were small but beautiful and simply divine.
On Sunday we took a 3 miles walk thought the grounds and fields to a small church in Oakley, bring your walking boots the countryside is lovely and on your doorstep. There is a very pretty cottage in the grounds which you can book, if you wanted a romantic break do look at this it is like a fairytale so well located away from the hotel yet near enough to stagger to if you decide to eat in the hotel.
The offer we took up was excellent value, the location is easy from where we live in Surrey, we'll certainly return again when we need to relax and breathe some fresh air. You can stay here for less than the cost of a good meal in London.
