We have just returned from a weekend break here which was excellent value. I note that the manager replies to all reviews and feel that this shows a very good attitude. As others have said it is quite a trek from some rooms to the actual mansion and the entertainment areas but, on the other hand, the remoter rooms are...

We wanted to stay here because it is where To the Manor Born was filmed. Booked their 4 poster bed in the main house at just under 400 pound for 2 nights. For this we did expect something nice, clean and stylish but where dissapointed. Needs a revamp of rooms. Carpets stained. Dust on walls near beds and behind doors....

I was surprised and sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay in the Historic Cricket House. Our Historic Rooms are usually highly praised for both décor and cleanliness, all are individually styled and have plethora of original features that you would expect from a listed building. I certainly will pass on your comments to our Head Housekeeper...

I bought a Groupon spa day with facial deal for my wife and I, the deal seemed fairly reasonably priced until we arrived at the hotel. On arrival we were greeted by a lady who as soon as we said we had a Groupon deal changed in her de-meaner. She grumpily checked the computer and then with out a word...

Hotel very good accompanied by a excellent food menu and entertainment. Fair enough the rooms in the Walled Garden are a fair walk to the Pavilion Bar and Restaurants, most of that is under cover apart from a short walk past the Church. Really enjoyed the grounds and old mansion. Would definitely return at a future date.

The room in the Walled Garden of the hotel was spacious, albeit cold. The radiator that blew hot air on some kind of thermostat meant if you were on the side of the bed with the radiator it was just adequate but it didn't reach the side of the room with the window. The full length curtains showed signs of...

Cricket St Thomas is the perfect destination for meeting with friends and I would like to thank you for writing this review.

It is always interesting for me to hear feedback from first time visitors to Cricket and your thoughts on the “Warner” experience.
