I'd tried to stay here before but got "Bumped" as they had drainage problems and arranged for us to stay at the Hilton. This time around it smelt like they still had the drainage problems and I wish we had been "Bumped" again. Got off to a bad start as we arrived early to find check in was really 4-8. Plenty of people around and a phone number to contact but not very helpful. It was explained housekeeping weren't there but had I called in advance they might have been able to help so choice was hang on almost two hours or go for a wander and come back. To be fair, we were met by Minty, a very pleasant lady, who made us feel welcome and at home. We were shown to our upstairs room with en-suite wet room. The bed was large and spacious but the mattress is not one of the best I've slept on and the pillows were not of the highest quality so great night's sleep was not delivered through that and the pervasive smell from the shower/wet room drain. We had an early evening table booked in Stratford followed by theatre so by the time we discovered the issues it was too late. Breakfast on Sunday was 08.00-09.00. Hmmm. No we didn't make that either. There was something going on in the main house/at the owners which meant a degree of late night noise and the early birds in the morning could be heard effectively through the closed windows. It looked like it could have been a quirky, interesting experience but ended up a disappointment. Next time up I'll pay few ponds more and stay in the centre, even in one of the chains. I like to support small and local but this was not value for money on any level
