My better half booked this weekend break and I have to say we had a great two days. Very quirky interior decor which seemed to had been thrown in there but made for interesting conversations and jokes. The nude ladies black and white photos that adorned the entrance were very arty in their composition but maybe not for a hotel lobby. Numerous photos of MPW adorned the staircase and bar which was a little OTT but he is a tad eccentric!
Our room was in the annex building and was very nice indeed. Large room with two sofas, small side room with tea/coffee facility and very small wardrobe. TV was very small for such a large room but we were not there watch films.
We had dinner here for the first night then at the Pear Tree on the second. Menus were a little low on choice and very similar at both venues. Food we thought was excellent at both and service was also commendable with all staff wanting to engage in conversation. The "glug glug" fish water jugs made us chuckle every time we poured a glass!
I have read many reviews which paint a very poor picture of this place but I disagree with them as We had a great weekend!!!

I love this hotel. There are two parts: the gorgeous old hotel with fabulous history (including as a WW2 RAF Officers mess I believe) and the bright, modern annex with all mod-cons; both use the lovely reception and dining areas. Marco Pierre White and his team have introduced more quirky charm (and higher quality) to the lovely old place: it is getting even better :-). The grounds are lovely too - make time to have a wander - even a game of croquet. A really good bunch of people run this hotel, they made me feel like a particularly special guest ... then I realised that they made us all feel like particularly special guests.

Room Tip: I have stayed in both - for me the old hotel is the best - but the new annex is more "chain&quo...

Stayed in the new annex for the 2 day gourmet experience (see Rudloe Arms Restaurant and Pear Tree).
The room was clean but tiny and the WiFi worked well. The television was the smallest I've seen since being a kid.
The problem was the floor heating - it was on even when turned off on the thermostat, which meant it was like the Gobi desert in the room.
However, the real issue was the mattress, which was very thin and soft. When waking up in the morning it felt like you'd been sleeping on the floor.....
Think again before booking this experience.

Was a great weekend food was great service was even better, stayed in the new building very spacious and clean. Could do with a lick if paint. Staff where great and manger and barman could not do enough for you. I would recommend you bring your man here as a great bar, free pool, table football, juke box. Very quirky pictures really interesting MPW just like to say are you sure you don't want to change your career to an interior designer spot on.

Ours was a living social deal, three course meal included for both nights. Meal options very poor and almost identical at both venues, at best good pub food, but have had more selection of food in a pub for a substantially lower cost.
A number of guests made similar comments.
MPW appears to be trading on his name and reputation which will only last for so long.
Staff try hard, however they need management and training to stop disorganisation at meal times.
Room was adequate however overall very disappointed as we do not get away very often and this was to celebrate our anniversary.

A weekend away without children is a rare treat. The living Social Deal represented what I thought was good value. How very wrong I was.
Food was of a very poor standard.
Hotel room was of a lower standard than a Premiere Inn.
I ask myself if Marco eats the food, drinks the average, over- priced wines and sleeps in the very uncomfortable beds.
Awful from start to finish and I won't be back.
If mad enough to go, drink plenty of water as EVERYTHING is heavily over salted.

Room Tip: Just don't go
