Good room. Fast free Internet. Great food. Quiet location and very relaxing atmosphere.
Seriously recommend this hotel.
If you plan to just relax after work look no further

“The lunch from hell”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

I phoned to book a table a day in advance for a family lunch for three people. There was no-one available to take a booking in the restaurant and the extension line just rang and rang. Eventually the operator said she would get someone to call me back. They did ... four hours later!
On the day of the lunch we arrived at 1.45pm (table was booked for between 1.30 and 1.45) only to be met by the female restaurant manager in the rudest of ways, grumbling about wanting to close the restaurant as we were 'late'. We were not shown our table, but had to ask where we could sit; the buffet food was dried out and inedible; the fish starters on the buffet were curling at their edges, only some tired prawns and coleslaw left as all the smoked salmon had gone. Wilting salad leaves. We left 70% of our food on our plates, so bad was it. On returning to our table after collecting our desserts, the main course had still not been cleared away, despite 5 waiters plus said manageress talking together in the corner of the room. We moved the plates ourselves to an adjoining table. Total ill-disguised bad temper from the restaurant staff, white wine not properly chilled, overcooked food fizzling on food-warmers under hot lights, lukewarm coffee, paper napkins, butter melting to grease in the butter dish.
Never again. A bill of £61 and disgraceful service ensured we will certainly not go back.

“One little slip”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Took nine people for Sunday lunch, eight thought it top class for food/value. Unfortunately I was the unlucky one, I had lamb which was tough !
We shall however be going again as I consider that a one-off occurrence.
Why didn't I complain ? Because I didn't want to upset the ladies.

“Expensive and trying too hard”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Some of the staff were not very friendly and the food was overly complicated and needed a glossary of terms to tell you what you were eating. They would do better to serve a few plain wholesome dishes for those diners who don't want truffle hollandaise or marjoram jus.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The food in the Chilworth Manor Restaurant is outstanding, very well priced and you can see why they have won awards for it. The chef and his team should be congratualted on this part of the Hotel.
We stayed as part of a package of DBB the dinner part was the best, the bed was comfy and the breakfast was poor, hopefully the evening chef has no part to play for the breakfast, if he does he needs more sleep!
