We were guests for a small family celebration which we all enjoyed very much. It is a beautiful place: the public areas, the bedrooms and the gardens are extremely well-kept. The hotel was busy with a large wedding and other parties, but once we were past reception we didn't feel sidelined: the staff were well-meaning and warm and there was room for everyone. I have two "could do better" points. First, the reception area felt a bit hit-and-miss: several people in uniform were standing around and happy enough to engage us in welcoming chat, but they had to be asked twice before helping anyone struggling with luggage. Perhaps who does what in this part of the hotel at busy times needs to be clarified? Second, we left a shirt behind in our room and have phoned several times to ask about it - we'd be happy to pay for the cost of returning it - but so far, after a week, no one has bothered to return our calls, despite promising to do so. I've rated the hotel as "average" for these reasons: some English country hotels get these simple, personal things right, and so distinguish themselves as very good or excellent. I don't think Ettington is in that category yet.
