Upon arrival our initial impression was a lovely building - in a lovely peaceful setting. We looked forward to a stay when we would be able to feel that we were staying with friends, or as part of a small country house weekend party and this was to an extent achieved.
Sadly the actual experience was a bit of a let-down. We were upgraded to a 'superior' room again our initial impression was good. However it turned out to have a cracked bath panel and an uncomfortable bed whose headboard banged against the wall.
We chose this hotel also because of the reputation of the restaurant. We expected prices to be high, but also that quality and style would reflect this. Again initial impressions were good: the olives and bread were pleasant, when the amuse-bouche arrived it was excellent and our anticipation rose for the rest of the meal. Sadly however the first course was in my case slightly cold and the main course for both of us was also served at best warm. Both mains were accompanied by overpoweringly sweet sauces. The wine list was also expensive. Having recently eaten at a similar establishment in Oxford (the Old Parsonage) the food was a real disappointment. Breakfast, included in the cost of room, was also a little disappointing with very small servings and limited range of fruit and juices (un-chilled). Service from the staff in reception, at dinner and for breakfast was however very good - all of them had a smile and pleasant word for us.
In summary if one were staying with friends or at a country house party then the food and the room would have been acceptable. However this is not a cheap hotel and the restaurant was a sad disappointment and the room left something to be desired. One was left with an overall impression of corners being cut in the room, and cheeseparing in the restaurant. A real pity.
