I wish I had some more time to spend at the Barcelo, an old English manor in the countryside.
It really is a charming place, I was given a room in the main building: very big, comfortable, nice furnicture and extremely clean.
We had a quick dinner in the hotel pub, which was good and well served (but, much to my disappointment, no English beer available); the restaurant menu looked nice as well although there was not much choice and it seemed to be a bit expensive.
Breakfast was OK, in the restaurant room overlooking the garden/park. Good choice and good quality of food; cooked food available as well. Only disadvantage: the buffet tables were not in the same room.
If you are travelling for business you might be interested to know that internet was not available for free (I don't remember the cost buty I found it cheaper to use my 3G key although roaming as I just needed to quickly access emails).
