We celebrated our first wedding anniversary at this beautiful hotel. We received a much better room than anticipated with a bottle of bubbly & congratulations card on arrival. we enjoyed a lovely massage, although I think treatments were very overpriced. The pool was nice and quiet with plenty of loungers. Dinner at the hotel was beautifully presented and tasty, although service was slow once we'd had our starter and main. Whilst waiting for the dessert we ran out of wine & water on our table and couldn't get any waiter to serve us. The grounds are gorgeous, we enjoyed a few quiet strolls while the sun lasted! The hotel is perfectly situated for all the local attractions - Stratford, Warwick castle, Mary Arden's farm etc.
I can't understand some people's complaints about the hotel, we found all the staff polite & helpful, the building beautiful and our room spotless & very comfortable - creaky floorboards & old furniture is to be expected in such an old building, in fact, it's half the charm. It was difficult to get phone reception, but we weren't there to play with our phones.
We had a lovely break & will definitely return.
