Chilling out at Chilworth

13/02/2019 ROYLES, London, United Kingdom

Very impressive drive up to large mansion. So far so good! Will look divine when all the rhodedendrums are in flower. Very friendly laid back staff. Our room was a bit pokey ( deluxe ...) but they wer... more

Chilworth_GM, General Manager at Best Western Chilworth Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Royles Thank you for reviewing your recent stay with us, I am delighted that you enjoyed time at Chilworth Manor. I am sorry that the initial deluxe room overlooking the front gardens of the Manor fell short of expectation, but am delighted to see that Jack was able to reallocate you to a deluxe room overlooking the rear gardens. I am pleased also to see that you were able to make use of the facilities during your stay, including a walk around the gardens. We did indeed launch our new restaurant menu on Monday, this has generally been very well received but I will ensure your feedback is shared with Chef, thank you for bringing this to my attention. I do hope you will choose to stay with us again, we look forward to welcoming you back. Sincerely, Nathan Chart - General Manager

Whats not to like

Lovely hotel which has been many things in its time, so maybe lacking some of the grandeur you might expect. Set in attractive grounds with an interesting deer ring which I have never seen before. Our... more

Dear goodtogethome Thank you so much for your 5-star review. I am delighted that you enjoyed your recent stay with us and that your experience in our restaurant surpassed expectation based on some other reviews you had read on this site. We take all our guest feedback seriously, including that which we receive via reviews on sites such as this to ensure our continual improvement. It is important to highlight, however, that the number of reviews received on Trip Advisor for our hotel last year accounts for just 0.5% of the total number of guests who chose to stay with us and I'm pleased that your positive experience matched that enjoyed by so many of our other guests. I am particularly grateful to you for taking the time to highlight the team who work hard to ensure all our guests receive a warm and friendly welcome. We very much look forward to welcoming you back to Chilworth Manor in the future. Sincerely, Nathan Chart - General Manager

No more than a 3 star!

Dear Patricia I am sorry that your recent stay with us fell short of expectation. Chilworth Manor is officially rated as a 3-star hotel, however we do strive to deliver a 5-star experience and I am sorry you did not experience this. The hotel features in the region of 200 parking spaces, all of which are within a 2 minute walk of the main hotel entrance, I am sorry that you were unable to park directly in front of the hotel but am pleased there were spaces available in one of our overflow car parks. Rooms in the original 19th century Manor are heated by a traditional central heating system with individual radiators available in each room for guests to control accordingly, I am sorry that this was not overly clear to you. The occasional creaky floorboard is also testament to the age and individual character of our building although I will ensure those you have highlighted are checked to see if it is possible for us to minimise disturbance. I will be sharing your feedback regarding breakfast with our Chef and Food & Beverage team as I am disappointed to hear that your freshly cooked poached eggs were not served at an acceptable standard. We do recommend guests who are not booked on a dinner inclusive package but wish to dine with us contact the hotel prior to arrival to book a table at your preferred time, particularly on weekends and at busy periods. Tables can also be booked online via our website www.chilworth-manor.co.uk. I do hope that you will consider staying with us again so we may have the opportunity of restoring your faith in Chilworth Manor, if you wish to discuss any aspect of your stay, or indeed would like to arrange a future stay, please contact me directly by email to gm@chilworth-manor.co.uk. Sincerely, Nathan Chart - General Manager

Best deal we could get near to the New Forest to celebrate my wife's birthday

Dear Choochoo_12 Thank you for reviewing your recent stay with us, I'm sorry to see that a number of aspects fell short of expectation and I do hope these will not deter you from staying with us again in the future. The hotel benefits from a fibre optic connection which regularly delivers WiFi download and upload speeds in excess of 70 Mb/s, I'm sorry that you didn't experience this. I do appreicate your kind comments about the team who work hard to ensure all our guests receive a warm welcome. I'm sorry that we hadn't got round to re-gritting outside the main entrance following the overnight snowfall, we do work hard to keep on top of this. We hope to see you again in the future. Sincerely, Nathan Chart - General Manager
