We too had an Amazon local voucher (around £170) which included luxury room, 5 course tasting menu and breakfast.
We visited last weekend and had an overall lovely stay. We stayed in the Anne of Cleaves room, I believe they must have upgraded us. The room itself was spacious and overlooking the Moat, 2 chairs and a table, desk, tv and DVD player. The bathroom was big with double sinks but as mentioned in previous reviews the wallpaper probably needs re-doing as it was peeling away in places. Nice fluffy robes and slippers which would be great for colder weather, also hair dryer and ironing board which is useful. There is no air con but they had provided fans for this unusual English heat wave!
The check-in process was smooth and the very friendly girl at reception showed us to our room and also to our table at dinner.
We played croquet on the lawn outside our room which we thoroughly enjoyed- we did have to look up the rules and setup on our phones (so perhaps this could be provided by the hotel for other guests?) Also sat in the picturesque gardens by the pond watching the ducks with a glass of prosecco. Saw people having afternoon tea outside too which looked quite good.
Dinner was nice, however the portions were truly tiny. Starter was a cold gazpacho type soup, followed by a Moroccan style lamb with cous cous (ie 1 small slice of lamb and a square of cous cous!) Main was fillet of sea bream Nicoise style-which was presented beautifully with a crispy skin and served with ?quails eggs, potatoes, green beans and tomatoes. Dessert was a slice of lemon tart with a raspberry sorbet. I think course 5 would have been the petit fours, we didn't receive any unfortunately. The bread was delicious, including one with herbs from the garden.
Breakfast in the morning was a very nicely cooked full English. There only seemed to be one waitress so we did have to wait a while to order after going to get the menus ourselves.
So, in summary we did have a lovely time but would rate 'very good' rather than 'excellent' due to the small portions at dinner and occasional slow service. We also paid a £60 on check out for service charges at dinner and breakfast and for 2 glasses prosecco which is perhaps a bit high.
We would return, but only on a deal and would prefer to eat a la carte in the restaurant as the dishes other diners were having seemed of a decent size and looked delicious.
