Tudor Farmhouse Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 February 2014

This hotel was perfect for meeting up with some good friends as it was relatively central for us. We booked 3 rooms, one of which was the cottage suite and this gave us our own private retreat. As the weather wasn't brilliant this was a real bonus - not only for us but for the other guests I'm sure:)
We all enjoyed the afternoon tea, our respective dinners and breakfast the following morning - the hotel itself had lots of character and the staff were extremely attentive without being overbearing. This is definitely a hotel we would return to.

The room was lovely and so was the setting. The restaurant food and restaurant service let it down . I have chestnut, mushroom and rosemary soup and it was rosemary grey slush ! We commented to the waitress and she replied 'lovely' and cleared our plates. The table next to us were asked if they had finished they said 'no' and the same waitress replied 'lovely' and again cleared their plates , we weren't alone ?! The main was ok but we were made to believe the steak chips and greens but nothing was served with the steak and chips so boring and I really couldn't be bothered to ask the slightly un enthusiastic waitress for anything else !! Disappointed :( my husbands food was ok at best . The room was lovely though the bathroom needs re vamping wouldn't Stay again:( sorry really wanted to love it!!!

Dear Prentice77
I'm really pleased you loved your room and location of the hotel.
It is vital we get our customer service and food offering right and we take any drops in service levels very seriously.
Having spoken to the waitress who served you on the night (who is usually very conscientious and customer focussed) I'm confident that there was a mis-understanding about your soup and I'm sure had she heard you correctly more consideration would have been forthcoming. On the rare occasions when a restaurant customer isn't 100% happy with their meal the waiting staff will always pass guest comments onto the kitchen team and restaurant manager so the issue can be addressed both internally and discussed with the guest before they leave. The fact that this wasn't done again leads me to this that your comment was mis-heard.
I hope this isolated incident wouldn't deter you from returning and we hope to see you again in the future.
Best wishes
Colin

We stayed for one night on a living social deal which was exceptional value. We had The Loft room which was absolutely gorgeous ! The room was spacious yet cosy,the bathroom was amazing and the views outside were a treat to wake up to. The meal at night was excellent as was the afternoon tea. The lounge area was cosy and relaxing after a hearty meal. Didn't get to see much of the village but there was a pub right next door which had a big log fire and served food. All in all a lovely stay just wish it had been longer,highly recommended.

We found this hotel via LivingSocial and the stay was everything we wanted and more. We had the Loft Room which was beautifully presented and exceptionally clean. Afternoon tea was lovely as was dinner and breakfast. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

My wife and I arrived as it just stopped raining and received a very warm welcome. We had booked the Loft Room a very spacious room with lovely double shower and comfy bed. We had booked for the 30th Dec to 1st Jan so had an excellent dinner that first evening and wine was very reasonably priced.
New Year's Eve Taster Dinner was again excellent full of surprises and nicely balanced it was also worth having the wine flight all of which complemented the food perfectly.
This was a very quiet way to spend New Year's Eve with good food and a glass of champagne at Midnight with the other guests.
Would return again if in the area but at a time of the year when you can enjoy the country side.

For the third year, a group of us have celebrated New Year at the Tudor Farmhouse Hotel. Once again, we had a superb time and were looked after as well as ever. The quality of the service provided by the staff cannot be faulted. They are cheerful, attentive and always keen to ensure that your stay is a success. Once again the food was excellent; the taster menu on New Year's Eve particularly tasty. Our room was one of those recently refurbished and was very comfortable. All in all, excellent value and I've no doubt that we shall return.

It was a pleasure to welcome you again this New Year. Thanks for taking the time to write your review.
I'm thrilled you had another great stay, and particularly pleased you enjoyed the tasting menu which was a new addition last year.
We'll be undertaking some more room refurbishments this year so hope you enjoy one of these in the future.

For the third year running our largish party (on this occasion 14) of literally old friends returned for our New Year two day stay at the Tudor Farmhouse. As we have become accustomed, the welcome was warm; the hotel was comfortable; the food outstanding and the whole occasion memorable. Our customary New Year's Day walk in the forest was a rained off non-starter this year, but this was the only disappointment. The hotel has gained a well-deserved reputation for the quality of its locally sourced food and drink and the New Year Eve taster menu was a triumph for Martin and his team in the kitchen - imaginative and tasty.

Room Tip: It is worth paying the extra for the Cider House rooms.
