We came to Burleigh Court for the weekend because we were attending a wedding in a nearby town. What struck us most forcefully was the contrast between the service offered at Burleigh Court and the way we were treated at the wedding venue. The staff at the wedding venue were offhand, sullen, careless. Guests at the reception were repeatedly asked to move on, get out of the way so that tables could be set up, drinks laid out..The person sitting next to me at dinner had more wine poured on the tablecloth than into her glass; nobody came to mop up. And so on. So bad, it was funny - but then I wasn't the father of the bride coughing up for this treatment.
Whereas at Burleigh Court the manager deserves great credit for building an excellent team: they all were all knowledgeable and keen to go the extra mile to help us, without being intrusive or over-familiar.
We stayed in a Superior Twin (Room Number Two). It was spacious, comfortable and with a pleasing outlook onto the rear garden. The bathroom was very large and had the advantage of a separate washbasin at each end.
The reception rooms, bar area and dining rooms are airy and well furnished. The food was excellent and the restaurant service very smooth. Although we stayed for two nights we only had dinner at Burleigh Court on the first evening because we were away at the wedding event on the second. Dinner starters are around £10 and main courses about £20. There were concessions on these prices if one had dinner on more than one night. Our rate £170 a night for two nights' bed and breakfast was very good value for what was on offer.
The grounds of the hotel are charming, with plenty of outside seating for good weather. High marks also for the cleanliness and state of repair of the place.
All in all, like staying in a friend's very well kept country house. We'll be back.
