Have just come back from a few nights at the Old England and now feel totally relaxed!
Our room was a standard room in the new wing which we were not expecting to be anything extraordinary but it was beautiful - the size of my flat! It had a huge double bed, sofa, table and chairs and a large flat screen tv. The bathroom had a large bath and a very big walk in shower.
We had breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner and all were superb. The continental breakfast had so much choise we didnt feel the need for the cooked option. Taking Afternoon Tea in the Lounge overlooking the lake was lovley. The evening meal was of very good standard and we would have tried everything from the menu if we could have!
I had a spa treatment which was very good, the pool area was very well equiped and very clean. The only thing missing was a jacuzzi.
Parking is two seconds down the road but they were more than happy to park/retrieve the car for us and help with the bags. Check in and out was friendly, quick and personal.
All staff reception, housekeeping, waiting and concierge were friendly, polite but not overbearing. it made us feel like we had gone back decades to a slower pace of life. Thanks to the entire team for a delightful stay!
