We drove to Dormy House on a Friday night escaping London...and within half an hour of arriving felt totally relaxed. We enjoyed a drink by the fire in the lounge which is beautifully decorated and feels like a country home from home. We thought we might have been the only ones dining in the 'pub' onsight as didn't sit down to eat until after 9pm but it seemed plenty of other frazzled Londoners were doing the same so the place had a nicely charged atmosphere and the food was delicious.
Saturday was spent relaxing over the generous breakfast and enjoying the pool and spa (we thought about visiting a local village but couldn't bring ourselves to leave!). These have been designed very well but PLEASE put silencers on the doors into the spa and out to the hot tub. Every 2 minutes someone comes in and out and those doors slam very hard... makes it hard to relax. We did also have the same issue as some others here regarding a lack of loungers by the pool which were all taken for the first hour we were there... it was ok as the sun was shining so we lay by the hot tub and eventually beds came free.
Our a la carte dinner in the Garden room was very pleasant...it's nothing to shout about after London restaurants (which are comparable at the price point) but the staff are nice and they do everything they can to provide good service.
Our room (15) was a big highlight...plump feather pillows, billowing feather duvet and soft white sheets over an enormous bed. Mega fluffy white towels in the bathroom makes it all too good to leave for long!
Finally the staff were great in returning my cashmere scarf I left behind and realised after a week of frantic searching.
Overall a very peaceful and high-design environment in which to escape the madness of city life. Will definitely be back!
