The location and setting of this hotel must be one of the best in the UK. So arrival at the hotel after a long journey was a very welcome surprise.
We were shown to a very pleasant room, a Junior Suite which was very large and comfortable and allowing for the fact that we had booked via one of the Internet booking agencies very good discounted value for money - compared with many other 4-5 star hotels of our experience
.We joined a group of friends shortly after arrival for the beginning of a 2 day reunion and with the attentive staff ever present we thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of the exclusive establishment and the choice of venue.
In the evening we dined in the restaurant and enjoyed a pleasant meal sampling between eight of us most of the dishes on the limited menu. The dishes on offer tasted good and were artistically presented, although the size of portions sugested that there was a major shortage of food available to go around the guests - you know what I mean more plate than food!!!!.
It is around this whole issue of food and drink that I have my reservations.
My wife and I enjoy staying in hotels in comfortable surroundings and enjoying the hospitality on offer but I am increasingly concerned as to how some of these establishments justify their food and beverage pricing. The Manor is a case in point - one expects when booking an establishment of this calibre to pay a little more for drinks and food than normal but the Manor is bordering on the silly or dare I suggest is taking advantage of its clients.
When do the management of such establishments realise that giving clients more than they expect should always be coupled with the needs of value for money.
By all means stay at this delightful hotel but unless you want to see your final bill in the stratosphere plan to eat and drink elsewhere.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It’s decadent, it’s cosseting, it doesn’t get much grander than The Manor House in Wiltshire, a country house with a difference. Dine in the Michelin star Bybrook restaurant or take a stroll around the picture box village of Castle Combe. ... more less
