Oh dear...............mmmm, We stayed for a weekend break, the missus booked it not knowing I had stayed at Ashorne extensively as a BSC,Corus and TATA employee, so not too disappoint her I said we'd give it a go.
The mistake we made, was a wedding reception was at the hotel on the same day. We had limited access to areas of the main house and to be told by the staff, we could not eat in the restaurant . We found a fantastic eatery in Leamington Spa (Restaurant 21)
On returning to the hotel we proceeded to have a drink in the bar to be told ,very rudely by a member of the wedding party to leave ASAP??? the hotel reception had already said we could use the bar etc.
Due to the wedding party occupying all the Main House bedrooms our accommodation was in a concrete bunker type building . However the room was clean decorated and furnished to a reasonable standard.
The main house and Quad building ( old stable block ) is fantastic set in a beautiful part of the Warwickshire countryside. The 1970's concrete extensions let the place down . Maybe get rid of the conference rooms in the main house and offices to create more bedrooms??
Its a shame , the place in its current state of management will never make it as a hotel, that's not taking anything away from the duty manager as she was lovely ,polite and helpful.
Disappointed to be honest - Stick to training, conferences and the weddings.
