I have stayed in Hartwell House at the front of the hotel in the past. The furnishings are antique and tasteful though not always sturdy. The rooms are large and there is an undeniable sense of relaxation. The only quibble I had about the room was that I wasn't warned about the room being tidied while I was at dinner.
The dining room is magnificent whether you are in the main room or small ante room. The service is friendly and unobtrusive yet expert. I've been coming here for years and though staff change, standards do not.
Anybody who expects food just shy of Michelin standard for £35 a head and says it's nothing to write home about clearly does not know their subject matter. The consistency of performance due to the head chef is exceptional. The accompanying photos don't do justice to a filling meal which didn't leave one feeling bloated.
Car parking is a short distance down a steep slope so elderly or disabled people should be dropped off first. There are 90 acres of beautiful grounds to explore or look at from the dining room or bedroom
