The hotel is like a 1970s hospital that has been repurposed. Forget the lovely Manor House in the pictures unless you are going to a wedding or conference. As a hotel guest you get to stay in one of several old fashioned barrack blocks. They are trying though. The curtains and linen were new. The staff were lovely. But booking... More

Discovered this lovely hotel via A Red Letter treat. A relaxed experience in the comfortable surroundings of the Chudley Room. Started with a good glass of champagne as the ample sandwiches, cakes and scones arrived followed by fresh pots of tea. Great value, quality and quantity with friendly attentive service. They even offer a box to take the excess home.... More

Booked this hotel because it had the swimming pool, only to find out when we booked inthat the pool was closed. This should have been on their website when booking. I was happy. We went to the bar and had to hunt for someone to serve us.
