We booked on Saturday afternoon for 1 night on the website (easy to use) purchasing the Lazy Cotworld Sunday Stay. We arrived the next day via train and jumped in a taxi costing about £17. It took 20mins on route the cab driver gave us some historical info about the area.
When we arrived we were greeted and shown in, are room wasn't ready so our cases was stowed away and we were given a tour of the hotel. The building is to a 5* standard, lots of attention to detail. Tonnes of character and antique English hearing charm. Lots of period and contemporary Art work around the hotel.
We had a reservation at the Beaufort Dining room, which was lovely fine dinning experience. (Formal experience) The food and service was excellent. They were very helpful with my husbands dietary requirements. We are not drinkers but the wine list was 5* After lunch we were shown to our room, which was upgraded (FOC) to Classic Double Room. Which inc Four poster bed, walk wet room, separate Toilet and large bath. The room was emaculate, and smelt clean, we were shown all the features of the room. Plus the bathroom was connected to the TV so you can easily listen to TV/radio.
We then made use of the Spa and leisure facilities, the spa includes a high powered jacuzzi, really powerful steam room and sauna. It's very clean it's not a huge space but romantic and intimate. We then took a plunge in the outdoor heated pool which is a perfect sun trap. It was very clean, good size. Not very deep but you can style do some laps. The changing room facilities are great, hair dryer and straighter for the ladies. Very very clean too.
Dinner was in The Brasserie which is more informal, but the service and food is still second to none. Plus lovely cocktails. Again they were very helpful with dietary requirements. The next day we checked out and everything went smoothly, the offer inc lunch dinner and breakfast and stay. Only thing not inc was drinks/alcohol. After checking out we continued to use the facilities. Unfortunately one hiccup which was NOT THE HOTELS FAULT the booked cab didn't arrive so we was going to miss our train to London. The Hotel quickly resolved this by giving use a lift to station in the company Range Rover. The driver was the lovely Hotel Manager who told us all about the restoration and history of the hotel. We made our train on time and was chauffeured in style over all a very happy experience.
We will go back and will recommend, I'm actually booking for my birthday now.
