Having read some of the previous reviews, we were a little nervous about living in the middle of the countryside when visiting the Uni for our daughter......how wrong could we be!! The major issue is: accept it for what it is.......talk of it possibly being a 5* Hotel if they spend money on it is pointless; it's a 3* Hotel that does what it says on the tin, and that is provide wonderfully old-fashioned service in the most beautiful of areas and that's why I've given it 5*s. Steven (and later Sophie) on reception could not do enough for the 3 of us and our two dogs. We were set up in the lounge for dinner and breakfast in a lovely window table, so that the dogs could be with us and we were not the only ones given this privilege. Colin andAnthony were deliciously old-school with their service and the wonderfully wacky Caroline made our dinner-time.......the food was outstanding (thanks Chef!!) with plenty of choices on both nights. Everyone had a smile on their face.....including the young girl servicing the rooms and the gardeners pottering about on the beautiful estate.
Visit this place and enjoy the p and q that it provides in the rat-race, just be aware of the fact that it does need a little money spent on it (but not too much that it stops the likes of us bringing the dogs!!) and check out before booking that the restaurant is still serving at the time you will arrive!! Handy hint one.......we booked B and B with another site, but the Hotel would have matched that price and minuses 5% if I'd phoned? Handy hint two......they offer an upgrade to Dinner with the B and B for £25 per head with no restrictions on choice (even steaks) for a 3 course meal and that is an amazing deal!! Enjoy less
