We stayed here as we were given an Eden Hotel gift voucher for room, breakfast and three course dinner. Have to be honest and say we chose Brockencote because it was the one with space that night - but it was definitely a great choice!
We were in Kestrel room (Superior) and it was beautiful - huge bed, sofa, TV, not to mention an absolutely enormous bath! It was at the back of the house with a view onto the fields. It was a tad noisy every now and then as it was near the kitchen, but nothing too disturbing at all.
As the hotel is old, the stairs are very creaky but once I'd realise what this noise was it was not a problem.
Dinner was lovely - the sweetcorn mousse (the amuse bouche) was divine! Being a vegetarian, there was not a huge choice (if you don't eat fish) - I had potatoes and vegetables, which although was not very exciting, was cooked perfectly. Drinks in the bar before hand were extortionately priced, but we expected this so it didn't bother us much. The cheese course was wonderful, plenty to choose from, and the waiter on cheese duty knew everything about his cheeses! For me, the staff were the perfect amount of attentive - there when you needed but not bothersome. Breakfast the next morning was also lovely, not a huge amount of buffet choice though.
It was the little touches that made our stay - there is a form to fill in before you arrive and we had let them know it was our anniversary. Despite being called Mr and Mrs at one point (we are not married - but this wasn't a big problem at all), the staff all wished us a Happy Anniversary, and even the petit-fours with coffee had it written on them! I was given a vegetarian menu without asking (again having filled in the form beforehand). When we arrived back to our room late after dinner, 'sleep easy' Teapigs tea had been put ready by the bed with slippers laid out on the floor! Lovely little touches and very friendly staff who knew when to not intrude.
Apart from drinks, can't comment on value as we were staying as a gift. One small tip - our luggage (one rucksack!) was carried to our room and the lovely gentleman looked as if he was expecting a tip, as I know is custom in many places. I didn't have any cash on me at the time - so if you do tend to tip things like this, have some cash to hand!
