I stayed here a few years ago and the place has certainly improved a great deal since then. Somehow, in the face of continued underinvestment in this beautiful property, the staff seem to do a super job - professional, smart, friendly & helpful - whilst around them the manor house slowly decays and fades. The kitchen also manages to do a fine job and the chef should be very proud of the food leaving the pass, easily deserving the two AA rosettes and probably could warrant a third with a more refined and varied wine list. Where Pendley Manor sadly fails is in the facilities such as the very tired spa, sauna, steam room & pool facilities. Everything is very clean and well maintained - but again, this seems to be the staff taking care IN SPITE of the lack of investmentand the whole place just feels in need of some major TLC. The rooms are the same: a grand four-poster room was huge, with fine views, and charming - yet somehow void of proper amenities, with the bathroom more like something you'd find in a very average 2-star establishment. Just.... tired.
Overall this place leaves you with very mixed feelings towards it. There's something very charming and loveable about it, and you can pick up some great bargains for weekend deals, and yet whoever owns the place desperately needs to pay it the attention that their hard-working and caring staff seem to manage to do. Hopefully one day we will see the investment and this place realise the potential to become one of the most charming, luxurious spa hotels in the area.
