We stayed at Swinfen Hall on a saturday evening; its a (reasonably small) hotel with bags of period charm and professional but friendly staff. The bedroom was lovely (comfy bed) and the view over unspoilt countryside was great, a very peaceful afternoon was spent there when we arrived.
We did not eat dinner at Swinfen as we were going to an event elsewhere. There were two reaonably large functions that evening in the hotel - all the guests we bumped into said the food was great and the events appeared well organised and enjoyable. It did not seem crowded and certainly was not noisy - the layout of the building coped with this well.
Breakfast was very nice - lots of choice. the hotel was full but the staffing level was spot on and the food came very promptly.
The location is really convenient as its near to both Lichfield and the motorway yet the hotel and grounds were utterly peaceful.
Overall - great, I'd love to go again.
