My husband I recently stayed here for 2 nights for a wedding. Grittleton is a beautiful little village and The Garden House is in a lovely setting. The breakfast was good, good portions and tasty.
There was nothing wrong with our room- perhaps a little outdated but clean and tidy and quite welcoming. The mattress on the bed had seen better days- it was obviously quite old and uncomfortable. I did also find it odd that there was no light outside the rooms in the hallway, as returning in the dark, it was near impossible to locate the lock for the door to our room.
We were very disappointed, having returned to the room very late on Saturday night to find that no one had been into our room to tidy things up a bit. Our mugs used the morning before for a cup of tea were still sitting, dirty, in the same place, our bed had not been remade and even the bin hadn't been emptied. It was obvious that no one had been into the room at all. I have no idea whether somehow our room was overlooked (though it was a relatively small place, so don't see how it could have been) or whether it is usual practise for the owners to not go into rooms during a stay. Considering the price, I have to say we did expect a bit of a better service.
Overall, the place was quite nice but I would not recommend if you are staying for several nights.
