We booked overnight, prior to flying from Gatwick to break the journey. Coach party arrived ahead of us and were unloading outside the front. The coach blocked the drive to the large rear car park. We parked on road, booked in and moved the car once coach moved. Checking in very easy, reception staff smart and courteous.
Stayed in the Chevening Suite, Rm 301, luxurious feel to the room. Very comfortable king size bed, lovely modern bathroom with large shower cubicle, high end complimentary toiletries and fluffy towel. Safe did not work but reported this to reception staff in the morning. Room was next to lift, unfortunately noisy people retiring long after we were in bed, woke us both.
Lounge bar very cold, external reception door open, as well as bar door! Had to wait longer than we should have, due to only one member of staff on duty, rushed off her feet trying to serve large coach party who got in first!
Dining room lovely, wooden panels and beams, good to see the character has not been lost completely from the building.
Breakfast very good, plenty of hot and cold choices, my husband enjoyed the full English. Staff very polite and fetched a jug of soya milk, to go with the Gluten Free Muesli on offer. Check out smooth. Would stay here again.
