My wife and I "enjoyed" a St. Valentine night stay at Stonecross Manor. I always read tripadvisor reviews prior to booking any hotel, but our experience on this occasion was at odds with other previous reviewers. In the bar the gas had run out on the beer tap. After changing it the barman poured me a flat pint of bitter. The Valentine night special meal was best described as eatable. The decor is VERY tired and recent repair and decoration is of a poor standard, which was very evident in the shower room. The four poster bedroom was adequate and reasonably clean, but certainly not spotless.The staff were "hit and miss", the receptionist being exceptional but two other members of staff ignored us when we said " Good morning", which they clearly heard as they looked up at us.. The full breakfast was massive but unfortunately poorly cooked, the bacon especially. The coffee was undrinkable. Oh, yes, and the pool was closed although we were not advised of this when booking.
On the plus side this is an imposing building and is very convenient for a motorway overnight. stop.
