We stayed in the hotel the night before (brilliant also) but the brilliant vegetarian breakfast was worth going for alone!

Tasteless food. Over priced and under seasoned. Food on the menu sounded amazing.. once it arrived was very disappointed.

Everything about our mother’s day meal was excellent. Greeting on arrival, table service and the food was delicious. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, even me being a fussy eater. Five people dined and would 100% recommend. We look forward to our next visit.

We stayed at the East Close hotel and had a three course meal included in the package. The service was very good but as the hotel reception is inside the restaurant we felt a bit lost when we arrived for dinner as we didn't really know where to go and did not want to just take a seat. Food was... More

We have just had the most terrible experience at this hotel today when we arrived for my dads wake. They denied any knowledge of the booking so no room or food and drink were ready. Very distressing. Do not use this hotel.

Went to the New Year's Eve event. The staff were fantastic, very friendly and efficient. Food was disappointing. Terrine was tasty but served with two lumps of slightly stale bread and chutney - no finesse at all. The fish was OK but a little dry and was served with broccoli and a couple of very small potatoes. It needed a... More

The Conqueror Inn, Eastclose Hotels principal restaurant serves traditional British and European cuisine. Blending Georgian opulence with a cool, contemporary twist. Not simply a comfortable, welcoming place to stay, we are a destination for discerning diners and a unique venue for weddings and special celebrations. Set in 18 acres of beautiful parkland, this boutique hotel has long provided a place of relaxation and inspiration for guests. In fact one of them, author Lewis Carroll, is rumoured to have created his tales of a certain young Alice after hearing of her adventures in the enchanting walled garden, croquet lawn and under the giant beech tree.
