Very nice place, good rooms, comfy beds, good breakfast. Very reasonable. We parked at the back which is very handy. Will book again. Very close to Silverstone race track if you are planning a track day, it is very handy.

The reason why its a 3 is the rating is based on the 400 year old bedroom building and not the room. My husband and I stopped for Valentines evening and stopped in room 19, a loft room which we were looking forward too. Firstly, we could not get the key out of the door no matter how we tried...

We went for lunch today (Sunday) and our meals were excellent. We both opted for fish dishes followed by the rhubarb sponge & custard dessert and we were certainly not disappointed. I wanted to have a side dish of coleslaw with my main meal and even though this was not on the menu as a side dish, the waitress that...

However as we were parking the man from reception came out and said he would find us...

Friendly staff and very comfortably furnished rooms. We ate in the downstairs bar, the food and beer was excellent . I would have awarded 5* if it were not for the shower over the bath which was difficult to adjust and erratically kept on going cold.
