We have had the pleasure of returning to our roots and stayed at The Shrubbery for two nights. I'm pleased to say that it still retains it's comfortable, welcoming atmosphere and the decor has not been messed with. I must admit to first enjoying the hotel in the 1960s when The Shrub held the best dances and discos in the County! We found our rooms spacious, clean and comfortable with nice big, soft towels....no power showers here but then, hey what's the rush! We were actually here for a wedding and they looked after us well. Food was lovely and beautifully prepared, yummy deserts! Breakfast was very good. The staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Do hope that The Best Western manages to retain the family friendly atmosphere. Incidentally, accessibility is excellent - wheelchair friendly and nice big bathrooms and wheel-in showers. Easy and spacious car parking.
