We've stayed at this hotel on many occasions, and also lunch here regularly. The food is always excellent in terms of quality, presentation, and value, and the service is generally very good, but occasionally when staff are new, service can be a bit patchy. Beds are comfortable but we have two criticisms - the headboards in the garden rooms have a pediment that you will hit your head or neck on if you sit up in bed reading a book (very uncomfortable). The pillows are very limp and give virtually no support. A good pillow should pass the test that if you place it across your forearm, the pillow should retain its shape and not flop around your arm. Stanwell pillows fail the test. I would recommend that the hotel renew their stock of pillows. Also, for any hotel where might couples stay for a romantic time, I would make it the law that baths are double ended, so this might be worth bearing in mind for any future refurb. One other point - every year they have a beautiful large Christmas tree, but it is always badly decorated resembling someone having thrown decorations on in a random fashion. They should get some professional advice on this as it would vastly improve the Christmas experience.
