We stayed at the Elcot for a wedding celebration for which the hotel was booked exclusively. Our room(5) in the mews was large, quiet and comfortable. However, we were surprised that there was no room safe and that only one set of towels was provided (there was a second set in a bag in the wardrobe). The large bath/shower was quite slippery with a note above it saying that a non-slip mat was available from reception - a bit late by the time you are under the shower!
The meal and service at the post-wedding party were first-class. Needless to say we had no problem with noise! The staff were very attentive to our every need. Breakfast was tasty, hot and plentiful.
The location and grounds are lovely, with good views of Inkpen Beacon. However, parts of the grounds are not well cared for and the hotel decor is 'tired' in places. It would add to the hotel's appeal if the swimming pool was re-opened.
This was a most enjoyable stay but not worthy of a 5* rating until more attention is given to garden and decor.More
