We need to declare that this review was very much based around a late arrival, and a relatively early departure the next day.
After a small mixup surrounding the checkin time (an email asking for an early checkin must have been lost in the ether), we had a lovely light lunch at the hotel before heading off for a wedding.
The room (a "Four Poster Manor Room") was excellent. Plenty of storage space, modern facilities and a very large and well appointed bathroom. We would have happily stayed extra days, and in many respects, regretted not being able to sample more of the hotel's spa services on offer, and also to walk around the new forest from the excellent hotel location.
The highlight was the blend of modern luxury and comforts together with the grand architecture of the manor. Wood fires, antique furniture are mixed with modern touches that works.
Breakfast was a buffet and was nicely presented and prepared.
The staff were friendly and polite. There is ample parking at the rear of the hotel which has easy access to the rooms.
We stayed inside the main Manor house, and based on this alone, we'd highly recommend doing the same. It was a grand room, and very close to reception and the food service areas.
It's not a cheap experience to stay at Carey's Manor for such a regional location, although it won't disappoint.
