We chose Hatton Court from the internet for a Valentine weekend away. We were warmly welcomed when we got there on the Friday evening. The room was small but clean. The bed, however was a small double and too small for myself and my husband to sleep comfortably. The small notice on the writing desk intimated that there was a mini bar/fridge in the room but this turned out not to be true!
We had a three course meal and a four course valentine meal included in the price. The only difference in the number of courses was in fact an amuse bouche. This, in my opinion should not be described as a 'course'. The quality of the food on both evenings was mixed. The starters were lovely but I had the fish on the first evening which appeared to have been sitting under a heat lamp for far too long. The size of the portions was on the small side - large enough for my small appetite but not enough for my husband. In contrast, breakfast was wonderful - cooked to order and accompanied by a buffet which included all you could want.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- ‘Contemporary country house with the Cotswolds warmest welcome’ Set high on an escarpment overlooking the Severn Vale this 45 bedroom country house hotel lies between the Cathedral City of Gloucester and Regency Cheltenham. Hatton Court provides the right balance between traditional hotel service and all the benefits you would expect from a contemporary hotel. The Tara Restaurant is renowned locally. It is an ideal place from which to explore the Cotswolds. Hatton Court is a reassuring size; not large and impersonal, nor too small. As a former splendid Cotswold home the feeling is of being eminently comfortable as opposed to grand. Nothing is hurried. The reception is very much a lounge, with leather sofas, magazines and an open fireplace for those chillier days. Next door the bar is more a place to relax, take tea, read and talk than to rush. The care taken to prepare the food, combined with a smiling service, is complemented by the thought that has gone into creating the Tara Restaurant. Fully refurbished in late 2009 the natural colours and soft lighting make a relaxing environment for friends and relations to enjoy each other’s company. Private dining facilities are available in the equally well appointed Cotswold Room. The peace of the surrounding countryside and comfortable bedrooms, some with whirlpool baths, make for a good night’s sleep ready for another day exploring the Cotswolds. ... more less
