Having read other reviews, before buying a 'deal' for a 2 night stay I was uncertain quite what to expect. The reviews are accurate and fair, this is a lovely building, with some quality furnishings, and with a little attention could be a great hotel, but the cleaning and hospitality leaves a bit to be desired, empty tissue boxes, someone else's breath freshner mints in a drawer, a whirlpool bath that looked like a Victorian surgeon's equipment and a (dated) wash basin, with stiff almost unturnable taps, with old nail varnish on the cold tap. The cleaning needs to step up a gear or two, everything just wasn't quite fresh and new feeling. On a positive note, Martin is a delight, and took very good care of us, as our booking had been mysteriously altered, so we arrived "unexpectedly" as it were. He sorted out the heating in the room and soon the' Badger' room was cosy as toast. The food in the restaurant was very good, but the place was almost empty, and I think a review of the pricing structure would see the place filled, it could easily be one of the best places to eat in the area, just so expensive, compared to other restaurants in the locality. Also sort out the plants, which seem to have just collapsed round the edge of the Orangery - dead strelitzia are somewhat off putting at breakfast. The hotel is delightfully situated with lovely views from our room, with pheasants and buzzards showing off in the field, and goats and a pony in the paddock. Please look at the rooms as visitors would, update the info, throw out some of the dead apppliances and empty writing cases etc, get out the Brasso, and the Jif, and make this the little gem it could be. Oh and hang onto Martin, he's a keeper!!
