After reading fab reviews I booked for 4 nights bed and breakfast. Hmmmm did not live up to expectations. The best thing about the Marquis is the staff- friendly and helpful particularly the breakfast staff. Rooms in the original building were mega hot so it was a toss between opening the windows and get no sleep for traffic or fry... More

We only stayed for one night and are now wishing we'd stayed a little longer. Dinner and breakfast were faultless, as was our room, and the staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel as a place to stay or just somewhere to go for a great meal.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come on in. Take a look around. You might just be surprised. For while the Alkham Valley, indeed Alkham village itself, suggests genteel old England at its most rural and unspoiled, the Marquis itself is something else... It's a strikingly contemporary restaurant and hotel. The product of a major renovation in 2008, what was once the village's pub, The Marquis of Granby, has been utterly transformed. Space, light, fine furnishings and beautiful fabrics and the opportunity to fine tune every detail hasn't been missed. The restaurant is a revelation. Head Chef Andrew King's seasonally inspired and locally sourced menus are as fresh as they are imaginative, and the elegant 21st century styling is exceptional. Queen sized pocket sprung beds are swathed in the finest cotton. Sumptuous fabrics dress windows and chairs. And an eclectic collection of art completes the mood, the mix and the personality that makes this place unique. Boutique chic in the heart of the English countryside? You've found it. You've arrived. ... more   less
