Lady Beoirgra and I stayed here for a wedding, so we got to experience a number of different aspects of the hotel service. The grounds are incredible, and make for an amazing stay, as well as offering the most idyllic setting for a wedding. The room we stayed in was lovely, with a large bathroom, and most importantly, an extremely comfortable bed. The staff were especially welcoming, and not at all pompous or overbearingly formal. Upon checking out we were helped by one member of staff who told us about local places to visit and even gave us a leaflet with a 2 for 1 offer for Warwick Castle. Most useful.
The only criticism I have is that when checking in, the receptionist was not able to find the key for our room and had to find a spare. We later found out why this was the case, as another member of staff entered our room about half an hour later with a couple who were being shown around the hotel (probably interested in a wedding). She may have knocked, but there are two doors to enter the room and the sound from the first does not carry. Whilst Mrs Beoirgra was getting changed at the time, thankfully her intimate bits were covered. Likewise, luckily we were not "in flagrante" otherwise the interested couple may have got the wrong impression about the hotel. This seemed unprofessional, and there was no apology.
However, overall this is a wonderful venue for a quiet stay, in lovely surroundings, and a stone's throw from Statford, Leamington and Warwick.
