We arrived half an hour early but were immediately shown to our room. Easter Weekend but totally unexpected was an Easter egg on our bed - nice touch we thought. The champagne was in an ice bucket waiting for us which we cracked open immediately. The room was huge and contained everything we needed, including a TV and DVD player just in case we wanted to do nothing. The bathroom was also huge and the bath was gorgeous, you could have had a party in it. The room was also clean so all my boxes were ticked there.
Once we'd spent the afternoon drinking champagne, eating our egg and chilling in the enormous bath, we went to the bar for a very chilled out drink (drink prices what you would expect from a hotel so no surprises). Then we went for dinner which was amazing. 3 course meal provided in our package... we were expecting a limited set menu but no... we had access to the normal full menu which was brimming with choices. The food came with a smile from brilliant waiters who were extremely polite and professional.
So then it was off to bed in lovely clean sheets and a very comfortable bed. The best thing was that breakfast was served until 10am which meant no need to get up ridiculously early. Once again the restaurant surpassed themselves with a delightful breakfast of everything you could wish for and hot English breakfast freshly prepared.
We went back to the room after breakfast for more time chilling before check out at 12. And like I said... if only we had more time!
- 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
