We stayed here for two nights as a birthday celebration staying in Room 209 on the second floor in the main hotel. It was a grand room with four-poster bed, flat screen TV, tea & coffee making facilities, ironing board, hair dryer and free wifi. It had plenty of space with two arm chairs, a desk and a walk in clothes closet. The bathroom was a good size with a hot, powerful shower.
The decor of the whole hotel, including the rooms, was very quirky Victorian Gothic style with reds, blues and browns predominating. Certain areas of the hotel could be very dark, especially the corridors, which is not helpful for customers with failing eyesight! Obviously a very grand setting for weddings and the Medieval Banquets that the hotel specialises in. Having read other reviews describing noisy wedding discos, we were apprehensive when we realised there were two weddings and a Medieval Banquet taking place on the second day. We needn't have worried, we didn't hear a sound all night.
The food in the restaurant is excellent, we had two evening meals and breakfasts there and just couldn't fault the service or the quality of food. However, we do recommend booking your evening meals well in advance, the restaurant is very busy and you will need to get booked if you like dining early.
The hotel is located in Coombe Abbey Country Park, although this is separate to the hotel, nevertheless it does make for a grand location. We spent a lovely afternoon walking around the park spotting all the wildlife and the spring flowers. A delightful way to spent your time at the hotel.
The downside of the hotel was the limited public space. The restaurant bar area was very small and lacked the range you would expect of such a grand hotel, no cocktails for example. The only other bar was being used for a wedding function. Also, the hotel would benefit from some sort of spa or swimming pool. It seems to have plenty of additional space that could be turned over to such a facility.
