For I treat I decided to take my wife to this Hotel for Sunday lunch. I knew the hotel well having played the piano there for many functions, but I had never eaten there before. The lunch was first rate, a great choice , beautifully cooked and professionally presented. The experience was immeasurably improved by the beautiful tasteful background piano... More

We had a two night stay in this charming period hotel, which is set in beautiful grounds, sporting well cared for croquet pitches. There was ample car parking in an overflow area, even though the hotel was hosting a dinner/dance evening,which was quite exclusive and well attended. We were greeted by a very cheerful receptionist, who spontaneously, offered to arrange... More

We approached it with a certain trepidation, as at first sight it looked rather faded. Yes, the decor and furnishing were a bit tired, but perfectly clean and of good quality. Our room was very spacious, looking out over the four (!) croquet lawns. We felt transported to another age! Breakfast was excellent, and service friendly and efficient. Well-situated on... More

We returned yet again to this hotel for a short break. The welcome and the service were as good as ever. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. It is the perfect place to relax. The food is excellent, and my wife's gluten free diet was well catered for.
