This is an amazing property, built in the Gothic style, with a fascinating history. I remembered it from many years ago when I owned my first car. It was a place that you could go for a drink and really impress your girlfriend! I remembered the "secret" door in the library when a whole section of books opened up into the bar - it was still there!
When I saw it advertised recently I couldn't resist taking my wife as a treat for our silver wedding anniversary since we were going in that direction to visit relatives. We were certainly NOT let down. The place has undergone major refurbishment and is an absolute heavenly place to stay (in spite of its reputation for being haunted!). We were given a genuinely warm welcome even though most staff were involved in a wedding which was taking place. We were given a spacious "garden room" which was delightful - boasting a lovely comfortable king sized double bed and an enormous bathroom. The view across the vast surrounding estate was fabulous. We had a gorgeous cream tea in a lounge with a spectacular ceiling. Ever member of staff we met was friendly and attentive. Dinner was great and deserved its "gourmet" rating. My wife was delighted when her dessert was served on a slate plate decorated with the message " Happy Anniversary" - a lovely gesture.
If you really want to be spoiled for a night or two, I thoroughly recommend this hotel in the historic centre of England close to the Cotswolds, Stratford and Warwick.
