Only stayed for the night on Saturday but felt like we'd had a much longer stay we were so relaxed.
Fresh and clean room overlooking the garden, comfortable bed and crisp sheets. all the staff are most welcoming and accomadating. we ate dinner in the restaurant and the quality of the food was excellent. My partner was delighted with the wine list and chose up a perfect bottle for our meal. Breakfast was relaxed and plentiful. A delightful stay and we will most definately return.

Room Tip: Garden view was lovely but they do have some four posters

This was our second stay at this beautiful hotel at the entrance to Waddeson manor.
A small hotel but very comfortable. Rooms are charming and well equipped- we stayed both in the main house and the annexe which is recently refurbished to a high standard. We love having tea or drinks outside or on the terrace and the garden is a delight. For us the crowning glory is the restaurant and on each occasion we have been impressed with the quality of the food, the wine and the service. It's a bit quirky but full of character and different to the main chain hotels. You also get a pass to the gardens of Waddeson Manor- well worth going. Highly recommended.

From a warm welcome to wishes for a good journey home, we had an excellent two night stay. Room 6 was of adequate size with a really comfortable bed. It is on the side of the hotel and not affected much by road noise even with the windows open because of the heat. A fan was provided which was very much needed. The bathroom was a good size with plenty of storage for toiletries but the rain shower was more like a fine drizzle shower. Water pressure was poor in the bath as well so a bath took ages to fill.
If that was the only negative point about the accommodation, there were no negative issues with the food. Although the menu is not long, we easily found something for each night. Every dish was beautifully presented, excellently cooked and tasted wonderful. The wine list was extensive but had a wide range of prices. The standard of food was also high at breakfast. Service was attentive but not overbearing.

Picturesque place, good standard of amenities, good food but staff really need to improve the standard of service. We had a pleasant enough stay but it could have been better. Be aware of the surcharges added for 'service' in the restaurant. We had already factored in the 10% service charge into our dinner allowance but they still wanted this added on again. They did eventually relent but we had to make a fuss.

Room Tip: The rooms in the original hotel building are nicer than in the new build wing.

My husband and I went to this hotel for a special occasion. It was my birthday. We received a very warm welcome and we were upgraded to a junior suite which was very luxurious. We were given passes to explore Waddesdon Manor which was brilliant being a fan of country estates. At dinner the food was divine and the staff and service was second to none. When my desert arrived the chef had decorated my plate with "Happy Birthday" in chocolate which made me feel,really special. We look forward to visiting again.

We stayed here for one night as we were attending a wedding reception at the Old Dairy next door. The hotel is beautiful and picturesque, and we had a lovely surprise when we saw our bedroom, which was decorated in period fashion with a four poster bed which was extremely comfortable. The staff were both helpful and courteous and we enjoyed a drink on the patio before going to the reception. Our room was at the front of the hotel and even had a small balcony - we weren't bothered by the sound of the traffic at all and we are light sleepers.
As we didn't eat at the restaurant we can't comment on the food, but we had a great night's sleep, and the lady who checked us out was friendly and chatty.

We stayed for 1 night and had a wonderful time. After being shown to our lovely room we sat in the garden and it was bliss. We then had dinner in the restaurant which was superb. Everything was cooked to perfection. The wine choices were extremely varied and we enjoyed a bottle of Rothschild Malbec. Breakfast the next day was great. We had a room at the front of the hotel which unfortunately was very noisy due to the road. We had to have the window open as it was so hot. Other than that we had a really good stay and would definately stay again.
