I've stayed at the sister hotel, Pennyhill Park on a number of occasions so was looking forward to our two night stay at the Manor House Hotel Castle Combe. The first thing that strikes you about this hotel is the location, if there has ever been a site for a five star hotel this is it. As long as there's nothing going on at the nearby racing circuit it's about as idealic as it gets in England set near a stream in a picture post card village.
We stayed in a junior suite in the cottages, a row of beautiful cottages close to the main hotel. The room was excellent with a comfortable four poster bed, large infinity bath and separate multi jet shower. We had breakfast in the main dinning room and also tried the tasting menu in the restaurant one evening which was very tasty and well presented.
So why not five stars? Unfortunately the service wasn't quite up to scratch. Perhaps we were unluckily but numerous minor errors let the overall experience fall below expectations for a top five star hotel.
Will we go back if we are in the area? Certainly!
- 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
