First annoyance was to read the website for directions, to be given a postcode which sent you up a side road to an industrial estate. When this was mentioned there was no hint of apology but just that it could "not" be changed!
Rooms were ok. The bar was expensive and not surprising if people escape to one of the two pubs over the road.
The food was poor. Much of it was lukewarm at both dinner and breakfast. The coffee was watery and poor at breakfast. The choice at both dinner and breakfast was not great.
The staff in the restaurant were not able to communicate satisfactorily because of their poor English. Surely training staff and ensuring they can talk to customers is important in the hospitality industry?
I strongly suspect you can do better for the money in the area.

Room Tip: Avoid being near the watermill and sound of running water!

I've stayed here a few times and you can always get a friendly welcome from the staff. I had a free upgrade from reception. The beer was fine and the restaurant food want too shabby either. It's not to far away from where I need to be and the cost is good compared to other hotels

We was a group of 42 Norwegian people, and stayed 2 nights at this great hotel. Our room was on 1. floor in the side building. We had a BIG bed, our room was clean and nice. We woke to birdsong in the morning.
The people working at the hotel was so service minded. They made our stay unforgettable.
The food was so tasty! It's the best food we have eaten in UK ever!
So thank you to the young management and their fine employees.

Last year I had my wedding reception at The Watermill and for our anniversary we were booked in by my mother for the night, we arrived early and were told our room was ready if we wished to check in, there was a wedding party in rhe bar area but the receptionist offered to set a table up or even open the restaurant if we wanted food which was a lovely gesture, we chose to sit outside where the receptionist took our food order and bought us drinks, food was beautiful and hot well worth the money.

Our room was clean, comfortable and even though it was adjacent to where the wedding was raking place we heard nothing ! Lovely.

For our dinner we ate in the restaurant where a table had been reserved for us and complimentary champagne to celebrate, the food again was wonderful (we chose the 3 course set meal) and the staff were attentive and very good at making us feel welcome.

Overall I cannot fault the hotel, it's staff or the prices, me and my husband will be returning again next year if not sooner.

Most relaxing evening I have had in a hotel !

Due to my work I spend more time in hotels than I do at home

I am now approaching my second year staying at the Watermill

The property is very nice
The rooms are well equipped
Some rooms are larger than others
The hotel has adequate wifi throughout

Some rooms have Air Con, so if your planning a summer stay here that could be a bonus

Harry potter world is only 10mins away by car and I have been told, if you are a fan of the films its a brilliant day out.

The food is of a good quality and the menu is large and varied, I especially like the piri piri chicken with rice! mmmmmmmm

The hotel sits on the edge of a canal and has a water way running through the property

It is a joy to sit on the wooden decked area, listening to the water and watching the ducks and swans whilst enjoying a drink.

What makes this location excellent is the friendliness of the staff
They really do try hard to make you feel comfortable
There are many hotels where the staff do not care about the paying customer

Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone whom finds themselves in need of a hotel in this part of the world

Well done Watermill, you are doing things right

Room Tip: I prefer the rooms at the front of the building as they are a little larger than the rest
