Went here on a travel zoo voucher given to us as a belated wedding present. What a lovely place. Once a coaching inn, owned by the Baron Rothschild and on the grounds of the gorgeous Waddesden Manor. The Five Arrows looks like a fairy tale house, turrets and wonderful architecture. We were staying in one of what was probably part of the old stables, set back from the road so lovely and quiet. A traditional approach to service, such as having your bags carried to your room made a refreshing change.
Room was lovely, large, well equipped and comfortable with a large ensuite. Tea and coffee facilities, iron and hair dryer. Personally, we found the bed far too soft, but that was only personal preference and shouldn't reflect badly on the hotel.
Our voucher included £50 towards dinner, and a free glass of champagne. Dinner was served in three adjoining rooms, spacious and intimate. Hubbie chose the guinea fowl and duck terrine followed by rib eye steak and I had tomato tart followed by plaice. All lovely and tasty. Prices were approx £7/ starter and £15-£20/main. 10% service charge is added to the bill.
Breakfast was also included, we sat in the lovely snug overlooking the garden, wonderful. Tasty full English, tea/coffee/orange juice etc. only 1 slice toast each. Other breakfasts such as eggs benedict/ omelette/ kippers were available for a suppliment.
Also included was a pass to the grounds of the Manor, in which we spent a very enjoyable couple of hours. Entrance to the house was extra.
All in all, a wonderful stay and would highly recommend.
