“Total Success!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2011

Thanks to the friendly yet professional staff at Shendish, I was able to host a very succesful spring ball!
With a wide range of people attending,everyone had a great time and the efficiant service meant that the evening ran to time dispite the amount of content it had .The staff were polite ,yet swift and I never felt uneasy with how the night was running.
I felt it was great value and the location is obviously a key factor when you having people coming from far and wide.
Thanks again Shendish, our night was a total success!

After having spent a weekend at the Manor of Groves (which was excellent) , it was my partners birthday over the Easter weekend so we thought we would try the sister hotel Shendish Manor. The grounds were beautiful but unfortunately spoilt by glasses and bottles left around the trees and bushes.We were looking forward to dinner but the menu was uninspiring and both main courses were overcooked; thankfully breakfast was great.The staff were friendly, but overall we were disappointed.And to cap it all we were overcharged when checking out.
As for the golf - for the first 6 holes the fairways not good - covered in daisies and dandelions.Although there was a notice outside the clubhouse about golf attire and etiquette - this was non existant on the course. Play was slow, not letting faster players through and 'golfers' playing in jeans and trainers.
The answer to my question - Manor of Groves.

We had a wonderful day thanks to all the help from our events organisers.We had a cream tea for 50 guests.Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.Had plenty to eat in lovely surroungings in the old part of the house.They also made available to us a dance floor for our dozen little Irish Dancers to entertain us

So thanks again to Maria,Nicki and Brandy.

Organised a company re-union at the Hotel for 25 people. Superb location, especially for people coming from every direction. Friendly efficient welcome at reception, well furnished and clean accommodation, well appointed private dining room, tasty and well presented food, with excellent service created an excellent atmosphere for our get together. If i was to offer any critism it was that the corridors were to stuffy and warm and the Hotel would benefit with better signage as you come off the main road.
I understand this Hotel was taken over with new management in December 2009, any negative comments were with the previous managment. I look forward to booking our annual event again next year.

..and it was. A great value package from Shendish, attention to detail from the beginning - and one of the few places in Hertfordshire that can do a large number of guests. Rooms and ambience are great - especially in the old house. Our project manager was superb on the day; the food was excellent and many guests complimented it (we had a free evening tasting for two beforehand). We made a very good choice for our big event.

Positives:
Service and staff are great, polite, efficient etc

Negatives:
Smoking in rooms filtering into hallways and then into other rooms
Previous nights glasses from all guests rooms, left in hallway for some time by staff
Numerous LED lights in room that have to be covered up if you want to sleep well
Bed way to firm
Breakfast dining area to small
Only one set of towels for two of us, they did this to others as well, frustrating!


I know some of the above sound picky, im not normally that way, but they are just some things that added to the main problem which is the hotel just feels wrong, it is trying to be something its not. Its overpriced, with nothing special to offer. No pool, spa, or particulary nice grounds etc I did have a nice time at a family do at the hotel, but this was only because the hotel was saved by the staff.

Travelling on business, had to check in late - no problem - pint of guiness and good scotch available at bar plus good conversation
Place looks like hammer house of horror when you pitch up late. Very nice in morning, colleague went on a run around the grounds
Room modern, well appointed and comfortable. No SKY (good)
Staff all very competent, cheerful and helpful. Good breakfast
Very reasonable for quality (colleague booked thro Bookings.com
Different and well worth loking up if in area
