My husband booked a weekend away for us and organised rail travel so I didn't have to drive (he doesn't drive).
The hotel was lovely and our room No.35 was equally lovely and very relaxing which is what we were looking for.
There were a few areas that we both thought could be improved on.
We arrived late on the Friday and the Bar man (we think David) checked us in gave us a map and pointed out where the building was. We entered the building but for about 7 mins we couldn't workout how to get to the 1st floor. There was a lift and stairs but were behind a door with no signage. We might have discovered it quicker had it not of been so late. So we thought for people who haven't stayed before it should of been brought to our attention how to get to the 1st floor.
Room 35 was beautiful a large full length window looking down the drive and a further double window looking towards the main building was perfect. A sofa and a couple of chairs and table. The bed was huge and so comfortable we had a sound nights sleep.
The next morning we headed to breakfast again it was slightly strange as you have to walk through the whole of the main building to get into the restaurant. We gave our room number and was told to find a table. However it wasn't clear which tables had been taken by others as people just went from the room to the main room to get their breakfast and didn't turn cups over so it made it next to impossible not to steal someone's table. The second morning there was a wedding and to get to the breakfast rooms you had to walk through where the wedding was being set up. I felt like I was intruding as I walked through.
If you don't like golf there isn't anything else to do at this venue and if you haven't got a car taxi's are £22.50 into Bath more to get to Bristol so a round trip would be £45.00. We walked into wick and grabbed a bus into Bath, they only run 4 times a day and are about 1-2 hours apart in time. We got a Taxi back as we missed the last bus back.
We ate at Masons on the Sunday night, It was very quiet in the restaurant just us and 2 other people. The food was OK My starter was good, my main wasn't, the meat was cooked to perfection but the buttered beans were hard and were left on plate. Also my pudding the crème Brule topping wasn't just caramelised it tasted of charcoal. I sometimes think the British say nothing policy is my big failing, But over all we would say the restaurant was ok, service was fantastic. We did notice the wedding party above us but it didn't take anything away from the setting.
We got back to our room and door key didn't work, However David was very quick at sorting this out so took only a few minutes in total and it was due to the fact when we first booked we only booked Friday and Saturday night. Then when Hubby realised it was a bank holiday he added another night on to the booking.
A great venue
Restaurant service and food quality needs a bit of work
