We'd booked this weekend away several weeks ago, prefering to miss the busy Bank Holiday weekend, little realising that it was the Air Show! This was an added bonus because Chalfield Manor is a hidden gem!
With only 7 bedrooms (Otilia's doing apparently) the hotel is small enough to offer the most amazing personal service. Dexter is very hands on, running reception, the bar, watering the garden, offering advice, whereas Otilia takes her responsibility on the housekeeping side very seriously. The small but perfectly formed staff were attentive without being intrusive, polite and the highlight of my stay was hearing the laughter as they worked.
Bedroom 6 was plenty big enough for us, with a wonderful rainfall shower, very comfortable bed and kept in immaculate order by Cheryl and her team.
Breakfast was topped up regularly and I can highly recommend the coffee, served in an individual cafetiere.
I took advantage of the massage service and can highly recommend that too!
Drinks in the bar are very reasonably priced and Dexter could charm the birds from the trees! It was really interesting to hear how the hotel developed from a derelict building in the the gorgeous Arts and Crafts building it is now.
All in all, a wonderful break and we will return.
