“My hidden retreat”
Reviewed 21 August 2011

I have stayed here several times on business over the past couple of years and I love it. The hotel is full of character and the the staff are so friendly. I have always stayed in the annex and the rooms are superb.
The hotel itself is in the countryside but is literally a couple of minutes from the M6 (junct 2) and the M69. The outskirts of Coventry are the same distance.
I always get here, leaving enough time in the day to go for a walk along the canal and then pop into either of the 2 nearby pubs for a meal.
Ample free car parking, highly recommended

The hotel is without doubt a grand venue and ideal for weddings. The room was larger than i expected, as i had booked a 'double room for single occupancy' which was clearly a standard double. Double bed, en suite, armchairs, etc etc.
The first thing i did when i got in was open the window, the latch to which was broken. I wasn't concerned with security but the loose, rattling window contributed to the general lack of soundproofing. I could hear every car door closing from the overlooked car park on one side, and every word of conversation from passers by on the corridor outside the room.
The room was otherwise very comfortable and could easily accommodate a couple with infant.
The aspect that annoyed me was the lack of guidance from staff. The signage and layout does not make navigation easy, and i wasn't the only one looking bewildered when faced with initially finding the accommodation area and taking breakfast.
I am by no means a seasoned traveller, but I have come to expect the breakfast experience to be a stress-free, straight forward affair. You enter the room and it's obvious what to do, be it grab a tray/plate and help yourself or request from the staff.
I naively expected to be offered toast and tea/coffee on arrival (at the beginning of the 60-minute slot allocated to wedding guests), since this was not available on a 'help yourself' basis. However, we had to specifically ask for it after having been seated for about 10 minutes. Cue awkwardness and embarrassment.
Also I had to use my debit card for all (expensive) transactions at the bar because the receptionist and bar staff were seemingly unable to activate the system to allow a room tab.
So overall, a grand venue but not the most user-friendly experience.

Like many other people on TA we were also staying here due to a wedding.
I must say I was exceedingly impressed with the hotel and the gardens. Its not a trendy modern hotel, but more of a traditional elegant hotel. The exterior of the main building is very pretty and even though they have added a modern conversion on the side, this can't really be seen from the front. The gardens at the back are beautiful and the lawns look immaculate, I can see why people choose it as a wedding venue.
We were lucky enough to be in the main part of the house. The room was fairly large with a huge comfy bed. The bathroom was a decent size, however there did seem to be a shortage of towels (although there was a bathrobe).
Breakfast was a good hearty full english with a good selection. Room rates seemed to vary considerably but I did notice that on some websites you could get some great last minute deals, if you were willing to wait.
Overall its a good hotel for a romantic weekend away or a entertainment venue.

I stayed here for a friends wedding (which was lovely, well organised etc). The rooms were nice, nothing amazing but clean.£90 for a room overlooking the car park is not brilliant though. Our friends stayed at the Hilton about a mile away which was also nice and half the cost. The wedding meal was great, hot and tasty, but the bar prices were nothing short of extortion. £6 for two diet cokes, £3.70 for a cup of tea, one round of 6 drinks was £42.
All in all the hotel looks really nice from the outside and the grounds are lovely, but I didn't think it was value for money. If you get a deal its worth the visit, but go to the pub down the road for a drink....

We had the most amazing time from the moment we walked into the hotel, the staff we're friendly, helpful and very polite. The hotel is very clean and well mantained. We turned up when there was a big wedding going and still nothing was too much trouble for the all the staff. The reception manager even came out to the car and took our bikes and put them away for us. The food and service was fantastic. Overall a hotel that i wish we could pick up and take with us on every break that we have including the staff.

Lovely buildings and setting, but the real jewels are the staff. We had our anniversary celebration meal in the restaurant, the staff not only decorated the table for us, but wrote us a card and supplied two glasses of bubbly!! All the staff were very smiley, helpful and competent. Rooms are well furnished and have more gadgets than normal - iron & board, trouser press, fridge, tea making, steam free mirror, TV speaker in the bathroom. Only thing lacking is air conditioning or a fan. Fab place, would definitely recommend.
