We were drawn (above the many other offers of accomodation nearby to Hidcote, where we were coming from) by the location, photos, reviews and excellent email and phone help in advance. On arrival the site seemed a bit of a warren and mix of architectures (in and out). However, decoration of corridors and service at reception was good - though we had to work at rapport with the person serving us tea/drinks. However, the charm of the place grew on us: the lovely guest lounge with fire, the old style bar, the high quality bedroom (14 - suite). The private use of the sauna was good. A real surprise was the dinner in the conservatory - set up very formally, the dishes we cooked lightly/simply with lots of steamed vegetables and a great pineapple tartin dessert (that gives the pineapple at Hestons Dinner a bit of competition). Again service at breakfast was a bit odd. There isn't anywhere for a short walk nearby off the road (though there are 3 good leaflets for longer walks).
A few things to improve? Quality of coffee in room and restuarants, wine list, pillows. Strangely the trees and orientation of the public rooms don't make/allow use of the stunning escarpment views,
