Last minute booking after toiling on the M25 and not fancying the final drive home to the West Country. Not sure which was the more impressive effort; my selection or the chef's cooking.
Very nice hotel, with pleasant ambience, comfortable if quiet bars, and a log fire despite the favourable weather. Dinner was superb. Scallops with the best chorizo I have tasted, accompanied with a lobster bisque. Fillet steak main was nicely cooked and the parfait dessert was unnecessary but amazing. Great wine list with some really god picks at reasonable prices.
Only 10-15 minutes off the M4 so location is great and there's a decent golf course and fitness suite. Rooms are comfortable if not exceptional. All in all this is a well priced and great value for money stay.
