Having been very disappointed that we could not fly to Prague this weekend due the volcanic ash, we decided we would go to the Cotswolds instead.
We were really pleased with our room on arrival as we had been upgraded to a suite, which was beautiful and very spacious. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We loved the pool which was a perfect temperature, unlike most hotel pools that tend to be a bit on the chilly side.
Enjoyed breakfast, it is always nice not to have a buffet breakfast and the poached eggs were cooked perfectly. If we had taken our children they would have wanted a better selection of cakes and pastries but we were happy.
We did find the dinners a little disappointing, we just felt they could have been better, for example we wouldn't expect to have part-baked rolls served in a restaurant of this standard. The service in the restaurant could also be improved. Just things like not taking a plate away when someone else on the table is still eating, and not topping-up our wine glass every ten minutes when we hadn't actually drunk any makes a difference. I hadn't realised waiters could be too attentive!
Everywhere was spotless, the bar staff were great, there is great walking straight from the hotel. For a short relaxing break this hotel was perfect.
