not quite sure how we managed it but we ended up in the "Dorchester Suite" and very pleasant it was too,,,, if not a little odd - on two levels - bedroom and living space on the first floor and the "ablutions" on the ground floor.... very special non the less. It is over the restaurant and too be honest we couldn't hear the later diners so don't worry about that if you are booked into this suite.
All the staff were friendly - especially the head bar lady/waitress who kept her restaurant team in order. The evening meal was ok - but not special - maybe a bit pricey for what it was and didn't have us saying "wow". The breakfast was lovely though.
I would be happy to go back to this hotel and a gloriously typical English village it is situated in - - it is the centre of "midsummer murder country" and we hadn't realised before booking so a nice little extra when we got there!!
We booked this via "booking.com" and i reckon we had a really good deal - admittedly we booked a couple of months in advance but still half price for the room on the thursday before the august bank holiday
