Sara persuaded us to choose the Severn Trow for a business trip over a couple of nights for four of us.
It was a very pleasant change from boring chain hotels. The rooms may be slightly smaller but they had loads of character complemented by mod cons such as wi fi, digital TV and power showers.
A warm welcome on arrival accompanied by tea and scones with birthday cake, card and fizzy for one of our team's birthday set the tone for the rest of our stay.
With a huge breakfast to set the day up, the large dining table, guests kitchen and mountains of homemade baking and bread on offer washed down by gallons of tea and coffee made for one of the most enjoyable and relaxed business meetings I have ever had.
Didn't see much of the local sights but there appeared to be a lot on offer and the recommended local pub's beer and food were pretty good.
I don't remember many places I have stayed in with business but I certainly will not forget the Severn Trow.
Highly recommended for business or leisure.
