Another winner from Christian Guild hotels. Well done everyone. Lovely staff, nice food and lovely communal areas. The pool was deep enough to swim in properly unlike the one at Lindors. It was slightly cooler but that is my preference. The gardens are beautiful even in mist!
We booked a superior room and it lived up to its name. So lovely and it has its own TV which however we only used once. The only let down was the bed. It would have been great to have a king size bed in a superior room but even a double would be OK if the mattress wasn't so soft. I ended up with bad backache after our two nights stay.
I love the idea of dinner being served for everyone at the same time at tables of eight but as we were part of the group that worked well, as you get a chance to chat to lots of different people. I can understand it being irritating for non group guests though.
No problems in getting a late key so I can't understand the comment of some reviewers neither can I understand the comment re alcohol. Christian Guild hotels thrive on group bookings and the facilities they offer but additionally I would quite happily book in as an individual guest/couple.
