Looking for a place to stay as we where due to attend a wedding at nearby Clevedon, my husband found this with a Travel Zoo offer. £110 per room, with dinner, bed and breakfast. As my mother in law was with us, Colin contacted the hotel direct and they did a good rate for her as well of £70 for the same. Arrived at about 7pm after a short in distance, but long in time (Friday of the may half term!) To discover the hotel was hosting the local senior schools prom! However, despite the small inconvenience of finding the temporary reception, we where greeted warmly by the head waiter of the resturant, Martin, who made us feel very welcome. Our room was located on the top floor of the manor house. The room was "boutiquie" with a lovely view of the garden, although we did also get a view of the M5. Because if the prom, we where told that the dinner would need to be served after 8.30, which actually suited us as we were still full from the afternoon tea we had eaten in Bath. Unfortunately, the walk to the restaurant took us right past the prom venue, but this really was the only issue as the noise did not reach our room. The food was very tasty with special mention to the Lemon Parfait dessert, but portion sizes where small and I'm not sure if they would have been enough if we where paying full price or where still full from the tea. Also, the voucher did include prosecco, which we didn't get. However, the service was very good with special
mention to Martin and Margaret. Breakfast in the morning was all self-service, but was hot without being dry, and plenty of it.
The room was very comfortable. It was in the eaves of the building and the access staircase has a height issue, so would be challenging for anyone over about 5ft 10ins. The shower in the en-suite was fabulous, hot and strong. 2 minor complaints, there is obviously a damp issue with the bathroom as the toilet roll holder and radiator had rust on them and the mirror over the basin was damaged and not well lit, which made putting my make up on a challenge. Also, may I suggest umbrellas in the wardrobe of the rooms, or available at reception? When we arrived it was extremely wet and there was no way to avoid going away from cover to get to the bedroom. However, despite the small gripes, we had a very pleasant, hospitible stay and would consider staying again if back in the area.
