Invited to suggest an hotel for the night - I had always wanted to stay at Lords of the Manor so selected this having ascertained that there was a DBB deal for £220. Arrived in glorious sunshine so the hotel and village looked beautiful. The room was fine, the bathroom very small. Clearly there were better rooms unoccupied but equally clearly the LoM does not upgrade rooms gratuitously. We asked for an ice bucket and carried our own bottle of champagne outside to a park bench down beside the stream. We were later surprised to be charged £20 for the pleasure of the bucket.
We did not appreciate that the dinner included in the rate was a very second rate affair and so had to pay a supplement of £25 each to eat from the normal and very nice menu. The more expensive dinner was superb (fantastic chef) but come pudding time we opted for one cheese and one souffle. The cheese trolley was parked right beside our table for 30 mins while we waited for the souffle and while it looked and smelled appetitising for the first 5 mins, the Stinking Bishop and others got to us after 15 mins and we moved the trolley away. The waitress saw this but did nothing and when the (brilliant) souffle arrived and we declared a loss of interest in cheese she did not apologise or offer any amends.
The wine list is ridiculously expensive.
The final bill came as an unpleasant shock to my friend complete with the 10% service charge noted by others and I was left feeling acutely embarrassed by my suggestion. Prior to that we had felt we would come again. The highlights are the location and food
