Booked an overnight stay at Ellenborough as an anniversary weekend away after reading a few of the excellent reviews already listed here.
The hotel is in an area we have visited before so already knew the location, the nearby Cleeve Hill is an excellent place to explore if you like walking & taking in some of the best views of the Cotswolds.
Upon arrival at the hotel, we had just about got out of the car in the car park when we were greeted by a young man who offered to drive us up the the main reception in the shuttle car (think golf buggy but bigger !)
The view of the hotel is very impressive, traditional Cotswold stone set the building off well & the grounds are immaculate
Arriving at reception out bags were carried in & the receptionist welcomed us to the hotel.
Within seconds our bags were taken to our room & we were given a guided tour of the hotels amenities & features, culminating in arriving at our room (Number 27)
The room was better than expected, although we were told at reception we had been upgraded it was still better than many other hotels that I have stayed at when having the top rooms.
The attention to detail in the rooms is what sets this place apart from others. As I had mentioned when booking it was an anniversary,petals had been placed on the four poster bed in the shape of a heart while other were spread around.
The TV had already been set to play music, & the heating was set just at the right level.
The rooms specifications are impressive, Wi-FI, Ipod dock LCD TV, all as standard. The room also had a well stocked mini bar, although prices are a little expensive. A safe is also in the room should you need one.
Without doubt though the star of the room is the bathroom, heated floor is a great addition, separate toilet, huge roll top bath which you could have swam in & a walk in shower which could accommodate several people if required !
The quality of the fittings throughout is the best I have come across at any hotel I have stayed at.
Dining in the Beaumont Room was a fantastic experience, the service was first class, attentive, polite, & super efficient all without feeling that they were hovering around you.
The menu had a fine selection for even the fussiest of eaters, all presented to perfection.
The wine list again had a great selection ranging from £30 to over £1000, along with the usual beers & cocktails.
While here we also managed to sample the spa, again the level of service & standard of the facilities is first rate.
The changing rooms for example we a work of art, fabulously laid out with every extra you could imagine.
The spa although small was just right for us & we were the only ones in there. The sauna & steam room was just the place to unwind then a dip in the jacuzzi to finish off. We really didn't want to leave.
This isn't the cheapest hotel you will ever stay, but if your looking to treat that special someone you can't go wrong.
My congratulations to all the staff at Ellenborough as they really have created one of the best hotel getaways possible.
