Reviewed 11 December 2007

We stayed here for a friends wedding. Yes the wedding was fab and the main function rooms are lovely but not convinced we needed to pay for such a bad room.
The experience started with booking. Despite calling on the day our invite arrived we were told the hotel was fully booked. Then told that was a computer error and yes they had rooms. I requested a room in the main house after advice from friends that had stayed a few months before. This was confirmed. However when the confirmation letter arrived - some weeks later - they had put us in the stable block. I called but was told this was the only room available.
So on arrival... the key to the stable block is hard to get to work - twice we had to walk back to reception in the rain to get help. Our room was tiny. If you opened the bathroom door it hit the bed. You had to squeeze between the bed and a cupboard to get into the bathroom. But once in you wouldn't be able to reach the toilet if you were wider than average person as the space was so small. Furniture and the whole styling gives a cheap conference room feel. In fact i think this is what it is. Fine if that is what it is marketed at and paying for. But be clear that this is not a country house hotel. The bed was uncomfy, pillows flat synthetic and a flat cheap duvet. The window was open was when we arrived - odd for Dec - but that was because it didnt close properly and you couldn't turn the heating off of full!
But the main thing was cleanliness. Did the cleaners not spot that large dead fly on the bathroom mirror? Or the old shampoo lids on the bathroom shelf? or the dust and dirt in the bedroom?
Wish we had used that money towards the cab home where we would have slept more comfortably.
Friends if you see this....the wedding was fab and i just hope your room was better! :-)

We held our wedding at Highfield Park - civil ceremony followed by wedding breakfast with evening entertainment.

The venue is lovely. We had the whole venue for our wedding. As there is accommodation on site most guests were able to stay.

The food was excellent and the service very professional.
