“A great stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2009

Me and my partner stayed at the hotel for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

The hotels location was ideal as we prefer to walk and all the attractions were within easy walking distance.

The breakfast and five course dinner was very good with a wide selection and very friendly service. We found ourselves trying to guess what was on the menu every night!

The owners of the hotel were polite and friendly offering help and advice about local attractions and how to access them from the hotel.

Our room was comfortable, clean and had a nice view of the gardens. We found it easy to relax there after a day out.

All in all for value for money (being students) and it only being two star the coppice hotel exceeded expectations and we would be happy to come back again.

I stayed at the hotel for 4 days, the moment i arrived i felt very welcome and settled in very quickly. The atmosphere was perfect, it made me want to stay another few nights. The owners, Mr&Mrs Burnett are very friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious and every night the menu was fantastic, such a great selection. Overall the Coppice Hotel is a absolutely brilliant hotel, that i recommend to everyone, I will definitely be staying their again without a shadow of a doubt!

Anne and i selected the Coppice for a 4 day break and from the web-site our expectations were high,also the hotel brochure gives the hotel a nice "bespoke" look which clearly isnt the case.
We have stayed in many hotels both in the uk and abroad,so when compared against others it fell below expectations.
Our room number 23,was large and bright overlooking the garden,but rather basic,the bed was clearly in need of a new mattress and rather small if you are used to a king size.The shower performance wasnt very good although the water was always hot.The metal coil cover on the shower cable from the mixer tap to shower head was broken.
Food was very acceptable with a selection and good service.
Although you may expect some entertainment of sorts and clearly the hotel noticeboard would also give the same impression there is none! A shame because most people on the saturday night went out ,a chance of extra business lost to the hotel.
As we left on Tuesday we both stood and looked at the hotel and gardens, yes it could be something very special but the owners need to open there eyes.
The pool outside was not cleared once of fallen leaves and the area around the pool needed a good jet wash.
would i recommend the hotel,i wish i could but not as it is at the moment. Its all about what your expectations are at the end of the day and the hotel brochure is so good you may find the hotel a disappointment.
One last point ,would the guy behind the bar look as if he enjoys the job, if not move on.
