We booked a night at Shendish Manor as it is close the the Harry Potter Studio Tour in Leavesden. We arrived and the hotel looks very impressive. Exactly what we wanted, a night away in luxury.
We went to reception to check in and I was slightly disappointed with the receptionist not informing us of all their facilities and with basic information like where the restaurant was. On the floor just outside our room were 2 empty bottles of wine. I'm assuming they'd been left there by the house keeping staff - not exactly what you want to see! These were later removed. The room itself was well decorated and very clean. However the beds were small and very uncomfortable. The wi-fi in the hotel was not great and the internet kept dropping out while we were using our phones trying to google places to eat.
At about half 11pm our next door neighbour arrived back to his room and proceeded to have a screaming match with someone on the phone. This went on for about half an hour and he then later decided to start banging in his room and what sounded like punching things.
We were then woken up about 8am the next morning from the house keeping staff talking very loudly outside our room. Overall the place looked better than it actually was. And for a 4* hotel I would of expected better.
