We recently stayed two nights at Bishop’s Court. The grand home and gardens are just gorgeous, the hosts most welcoming and accommodating and the staff both friendly and professional - the service we enjoyed was faultless. Our room was a generous size and opened up to a verandah which overlooked the gardens. We were however disappointed that the spa bath assigned to our room (as per their website) was allocated to someone else; after raising it the bath was made available to us for one night. Only hubby went down for the “gourmet seasonal buffet breakfast” included in the tariff and was underwhelmed by the store-bought cereals and juice. Without any information or prices it is also a little ambiguous as to what is complimentary and what is being charged – we don’t have issue with paying for what we enjoy but when offered a cup of tea or a coffee is it an extension of their hospitality or a service for which you are incurring a cost; the charges on checkout however weren’t unreasonable given the service and presentation. We did enjoy our stay and because we were made to feel so welcome I do feel a little uncomfortable highlighting some negatives; however, as a regular contributor to TripAdvisor I believe I should write a balanced review based on our experience.
