I choose this establishment, based on previous trip adviser reviews I had read on this page, and we were not disappointed.
On arrival at the property after a one hour drive from the channel tunnel, we were met and the hotel door, by the owner, and our bags were unloaded from the car for us, and taken straight to our room, the hotel is an ancient property and just oozes character,
We were shown to our room, which was just fabulous, beautifully decorated, in a smart country style, with a huge on-suite bathroom, with marble floors, double sinks, loo, and walk in shower, everything you could ask for.
The bed was supremely comfortable, and was huge, the room had a wonderful view over the lake with ducks at the door, a nice touch was fresh roses in the room,i slept like a baby.
We ate in the restaurant on two evenings, both meals were fab, a good choice on the menu, but not overwhelming as in some other restaurants I have visited in the past, I had the asparagus to start, followed by the fish (sole), which was beautifully cooked and served on the plate, the deserts and cheese were also fab.
The restaurant has an excellent wine list, and the prices are good, let the head waiter, guide you, with your choice, and you will not go far wrong, as we did.
Mrs C had the beef as a main course, which she said, was perfectly cooked for her (well done), and the bit she let me taste was excellent, with a superb flavour, just as good beef should be.
On returning to the room, after a nightcap in the bar, (stocked with a good choice of whiskeys) we found the curtains in the room, had been drawn, and the bed turned down, a nice touch by the staff.
Breakfast, was also excellent, lots of choice, and extra dishes available to order if reqd, (bacon, eggs etc), and was good value for money in my book, not like your run of the mill continental breakfast
From the hotel it is an easy walk into Battle, which is no bad thing as parking in Battle itself is hell, and not cheap.
The hotel has its own private car park. Battle itself is a beautiful town, with plenty to see and do, to fill a weekend.
All in all a fab weekend away, we are already planning our return with friends for another weekend
