Customer Reviews
Overall Rating 3.875
based on 10 reviews.
Customer Rating: Mrs Padbury, Reigate We were very pleased with the room, staff and food. One little quibble is that due to the hotel hosting corporate Christmas parties, we were woken up by severely drunk people coming back to their room, at very late hour, so would avoid this time of year. We made good use of the free tickets to visit 3 historic buildings linked with Shakespeare, which was an excellent bonus. The swimming pool is very good and not as small as some you get in spas.

Customer Rating: Mr Brooker, Swindon

Customer Rating: Mr barry, Barnsley The flowers I ordered for my wife's 60th birthday were poor and haven't lasted four days. Such a shame to be let down by the hotel's supplier.

Customer Rating: Mr Smith, St Albans

Customer Rating: Mrs Forsyth, Liverpool

Customer Rating: Mr Pountney, Knutsford Some rooms were a bit tired. Dinner and the restaurant service was excellent. The grounds are impressive and very well kept.

Customer Rating: Mr Cassidy, Maldon Table's and seating in the restaurant need improvement. Needs some background music to improve the atmosphere in the bar

Customer Rating: Mr Heydon, Coventry Because it was my wife's birthday the hotel gave us a free room upgrade. The flowers I ordered were in the room and they were beautiful. The only downside was the lack of space in the bar area, but that didn't detract from our stay. We will definitely stay again and go to the spa.
