Customer Rating: Mr Tyler, Worcestershire We stayed her two years ago. Things have gone down since then. Room was poor, cupboard hanging off, grubby and tired. Lots of black mildew in the bathroom. Food was average quality but very expensive. We arrived for breakfast at 7.30 buffet breakfast was already cold. There didn?t seem to be enough staff! Staff trying to run bar and check people in at the same time.

Customer Rating: Mr Kilgannon, Palgrave,Diss A good break with Blenheim tickets included, although 22 miles from Blenheim.
