To celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary we returned to the Manor House Hotel on the 28th April 2014 for a slice of nostalgia, having stayed here on our honeymoon in 1979, and to start our mini-break.
We took advantage of a promotion in the Waitrose Kitchen magazine and stayed for one night including dinner (see separate entry).
Arriving in Castle Combe at the hotel entrance the memories came flooding back and we soon found ourselves checking in. From this moment on the staff were very helpful and attentive; everything flowed smoothly and without a hitch.
We stayed in the main building in a Junior Suite called Daniels Ground. Welcome cakes and a selection of tea and coffee in our room was most welcome after our journey. The room was clean and tidy with a spacious bathroom and walk-in shower. There was plenty of room to sit and relax whilst having our tea and cake.
The bed was very comfortable and there was a good selection of pillows on offer if the regular ones were not to your liking.
During our stay we could not hear any of the other guests in the surrounding rooms.
Heating was more than enough and was easily controlled by adjusting the thermostatic radiator valves as required. The bathroom had underfloor heating.
One slight issue in this room was the strength of the Wi-Fi signal; it was rather slow and my iPad mini would not connect at all. My wife's iPad and our phones connected but at a rather slow speed.
We brought an old brochure, post cards and bill from our previous stay 35 years ago and the staff were very interested in seeing how the place had changed along with the prices!
All in all a very pleasant if short stay and intend to not leave it another 35 years before returning.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It’s decadent, it’s cosseting, it doesn’t get much grander than The Manor House in Wiltshire, a country house with a difference. Dine in the Michelin star Bybrook restaurant or take a stroll around the picture box village of Castle Combe. ... more less
