Shabby offpeak 'luxury'

CB, Hampshire, stayed: October 2018

Our stay was spoilt due to the run down state of the Premier Suite we were 'upgraded' to as compensation for the lift being out of order. Many of the full length curtains were torn, the furniture was stained and worn,the Shower had a VERY high step up to it and was in a large space with no grab handles, the bed unacceptably high

Lovely Sunday night stay

NS, Gloucestershire, stayed: October 2018

My husband and I stayed on a Sunday night. Hotel directions were clear and easy to find. Lovely warm welcome and staff very friendly. Room was deluxe room with plenty of space, but bed was two singles pushed together, so not very comfortable. The furnishings throughout the hotel (lounge, corridors) and room all need updating. Delicious food and very attentive to details and our needs. Keep a note of spend in bar etc, as final bill can be confusing. We had a lovely stay and would stay again.

Luxury hotel in a lovely setting

Carole R, Surrey, stayed: September 2018

I loved my stay here, especially the Barrington Suite which had fabulous views over the gardens with large picturesque windows and a huge bathroom. 

The spa was small but my massage was absolute bliss. 

Very friendly and warm staff. 

Restaurant food lovely but I think it's a shame the room does not have more natural light with large windows.

Relaxing break

EB, Avon, stayed: September 2018

This hotel is in a very handy location. Very near to M5 so it was a good stop off point on way to Devon. Friendly staff who were happy to assist you and we had a nice room. Spa nice though quite small so would imagine could be busy on a Saturday,we were lucky as was quiet. Quiet hotel which suited us. Price of wine quite high but I guess that's the same in most hotels. Nice garden but sadly was pouring with rain so couldn't explore.
