My wife and I decided to have a short break before our new baby arrives.
I wanted to surprise her and booked the manor room with a four poster bed.
Amy, whom arranged the final details was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and even had some flowers waiting for my wife, in our bedroom, on arrival.
We arrived, and was given our keys by Elle. She was smiling, and genuine. Explained where our room was and what to do if we need anything.
We went straight to the room and it was beautiful.
Huge space, nice sized bathroom, with bath and stand up shower, separate.
Some people mentioned in their reviews that it's dated. I don't feel that. I think because it is a Georgian mansion, and it is a manor room, that the decor reflects that.
We certainly loved it.
We had drinks in the bar and decided to eat at the Blue Orchid upon recommendation of Amy. I have left a review for this separately.
The following morning, I went to the front desk, and it was so lovely to meet Amy and another lady (glasses and was wearing a black jacket/blazer). It was great speaking with these ladies, who showed a genuine interest and nothing was too much for them.
The only reason I've awarded 4 stars and not 5 stars was service at breakfast.
The food quality was lovely, good cooked food, thick slices of bacon, nice sausages, choice of how eggs were cooked, choices of drinks too, all inclusive of having breakfast with your room.
However, I'm sorry to say the service given by a lady called Sally was poor. She didn't smile, she didn't acknowledge the tables as my wife had to get up to ask for a pot of tea when she should have came over and asked us.
When she did bring it, she spilt it on the table, so whilst eating, we had to watch her clean up.
On the whole I would recommend to stay here and all the staff except one were fantastic and nothing too much for them.
Certainly be staying here again. And thank you Amy again for your help in organising this for us! less
