Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed for one night in a junior suite. Comfortable and well equipped room, staff very friendly and helpful. Parking was easy and free. We ate in the restaurant for dinner and the food was fantastic and the service good. Breakfast we had to pre order which was fine, but when we went down everything was brought out too quickly, so there was no chance to finish the cold food before the hot meal came, which was only lukewarm. The food itself was nice, would have just been better to not be so rushed as soon as we sat down. I also really disliked that a £7.50 accommodation service charge was added to the bill, super cheeky adding this on when you’re paying £200 for a room. With that said I would recommend and return because of all the other positives.

All of the staff we came across were friendly and helpful, service was good and the room was very clean and comfortable. We had dinner in the evening and the meals were superb - especially loved the cheese souffle starter. Would have given a 5 star rating were it not for the £7.50 daily charge for room cleaning which is automatically added to your bill. Think that's a bit cheeky but it was removed when we queried it.

Booked a dinner and it was delicious! I have not eaten in here for a while and it really was lovely, staff welcoming and we didnt' feel rushed. Venison and the beef pie were chosen , so tasty, hot plates and cooked to perfection! I reccomend. and great value for money when you compare with the dreadful souless Akeman Inn at Kingswood.

Often used to call at the restaurant in years gone by - the gammon, egg and chips was a hangover cure - but stayed with friends for the first time last night. A great experience - lovely rooms above the coach house, very nice salmon ceviche and monkfish tail. A very reasonable house Merlot and Sandy did a velvet smooth job of encouraging us to sample the port;) Above all really nice staff - friendly, attentive, and thoughtful, even setting aside the almost private table one for breakfast after we admired it the night before. Nice walk to Waddesdon Manor the next morning. Highly recommend.

The room was lovely, spotlessly clean. It's an easy walk to Waddeson Manor too with complimentary access for guests. We had dinner in the restaurant, the wait staff were fantastic but the food was quite average which was a big disappointment.

This is such a lovely place to stay. We can't rate it high enough. The staff, without exception, are so friendly and welcoming, so helpful, it's so refreshing to have this excellent service. The place itself is lovely. We felt completely relaxed and refreshed by the time we left. Can't rate it highly enough. The only thing we had a problem with was the vegetarian/vegan options on the menu, as they only had one vegetarian and one vegan option. Apart from that it was fantastic and we will definitely be staying there again.

We met up with friends for a meal in the restaurant and overall were pleased. Three of us went with the roasted cauliflower and baked cheddar soup which was enjoyed, the other being the duck liver parfait which was also enjoyed. For the mains, we all went with the roasted bronze turkey, served with chestnut stuffing, glazed parsnips and carrots, excellent roast potatoes and thyme jus. We all enjoyed it though the turkey was a little on the dry side. We had to limited our drinks given the hour or so drive home but the ladies enjoyed a glass of champagne, my mate an alcohol free G&T and me a beer. Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient which added to the meal.

Absolutely lovely. Stayed for one night after visiting Waddeson Manor for the Christmas Market. The room was cosy and the bathroom a bit on the small side but absolutely fine. Beds very comfortable, clean, nice view of the garden from the window in our room. Staff absolutely wonderful, very attentive. Smart and comfortable bar area which is clearly frequented by locals as well as hotel guests. Breakfast delicious and with great accompanying music. Overall 10/10 definitely recommended.

Went to The Five Arrows Hotel with my husband. Very friendly and welcoming staff. We combined our stay with going to Waddesdon Manor for the Christmas fair and light show. The hotel itself is small but has everything in each room you need. Ie hairdryer, iron etc. The room was decorated very nice and was clean. Food in the evening was lovely, tasty and served well, again the staff were welcoming and happy to help with anything you needed. There’s plenty of space if you are travelling to the hotel by car to park in their car park. The hotel itself is situated on a main road but you cannot hear the cars from your room. Had a lovely time and would recommend the hotel.
