Found after a visit to the Henley Golf & Country Club driveway where there was a club notice of a hotel but, not on that precise site, the receptionist at the clubhouse kindly'phoned ahead to their associated hotel otherwise we would probably not have found this nice little, tucked away, resting place, when travelling through this black/white olde world village with its imperial looking 11th century church on the main road.
Our double bedded room, although small, suited our needs for the night with a nice restaurant and menu and Emma, a most welcoming receptionist on her second day at the hotel. made us feel most welcome
Henley-in-Arden is almost devoid of any cafe's and general eating places, so seemingly nearly everyone must eat at home although there was an abundance of parked cars along the main highway, so we were glad to return to the hotel and sample its fare.
My sausage and mashed potato, broccolli pea snaps and lovely flavoured gravy was most welcome, as was my companion's Lamb Shank. with similar vegs. perfectly cooked and most flavoursome, along with two glasses of Sav Blanc and a robust Merlot red. Great
The night's all in bill £102.35p!
Well recommended apart from our bedroom's(Room No 3) shower head stuck out over half way along the shower shield, consequently the water flowed onto the bathroom floor and flooded it! This was told next morning to reception who said they would have it seen to. less

Thank you for taking the time out ot review the hotel. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us including your meal and I will pass on your kind comments to Emma. With regards to your comment about the shower, this has now been fixed so I thank you for bringing it to our attention.
We do hope that you will come back and visit again soon.
