Took advantage of a last minute one night offer to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had stayed at Hatton Court several years ago and were curious to see if it was just as good as last time. Still a nice hotel in beautiful surroundings but not the same. We had a very comfortable executive room but the fiittings (eg taps and door handles) all looked tired and worn. It also helps if the tea and coffee tray has a nearby socket! The plug in room air freshener was a bit overpowering. The restaurant setup has changed to a restaurant and a seperate brasserie. The restaurant turned out to be nouvelle cuisine - not my favourite - pretty and tasty but not altogether satisfying. The restaurant service was a bit slow. Breakfast was a shambles, with half the guests waiting for food or drinks. I had to send the "full English" back as it wasn't as ordered - got mixed up with a room service order. The sausages looked lovely but were inedible and like rubber truncheons. Good food murdered! Enjoyed the visit but not again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- ‘Contemporary country house with the Cotswolds warmest welcome’ Set high on an escarpment overlooking the Severn Vale this 45 bedroom country house hotel lies between the Cathedral City of Gloucester and Regency Cheltenham. Hatton Court provides the right balance between traditional hotel service and all the benefits you would expect from a contemporary hotel. The Tara Restaurant is renowned locally. It is an ideal place from which to explore the Cotswolds. Hatton Court is a reassuring size; not large and impersonal, nor too small. As a former splendid Cotswold home the feeling is of being eminently comfortable as opposed to grand. Nothing is hurried. The reception is very much a lounge, with leather sofas, magazines and an open fireplace for those chillier days. Next door the bar is more a place to relax, take tea, read and talk than to rush. The care taken to prepare the food, combined with a smiling service, is complemented by the thought that has gone into creating the Tara Restaurant. Fully refurbished in late 2009 the natural colours and soft lighting make a relaxing environment for friends and relations to enjoy each other’s company. Private dining facilities are available in the equally well appointed Cotswold Room. The peace of the surrounding countryside and comfortable bedrooms, some with whirlpool baths, make for a good night’s sleep ready for another day exploring the Cotswolds. ... more less
