                8.2

                The hotel in general and my accommodation were very comfortable and spotless. The food and service in the restaurant and bar were excellent. The staff were friendly and efficient.

                Great hotel, great and convenient location

                It will be even better when the building work is complete.

              • Older travelers
                8.0

                Peaceful, quiet, very relaxing. 10 minutes from motorway but did not feel like that. Elegance of the dining room, meal etc.

              • Couple
                5.4

                The recent refurbishment is good and the decor is of a high standard. The building and gardens are in a pretty location.

                The staff need better training in order to provide a consistent service - it was sometimes hard to find a member of staff (for example the poor receptionist was running around answering the phone, dealing with people's queries and serving at the bar all at once!). The restaurant is vastly overpriced and far too pretentious. The food was of a poor quality and not as described on the menu - although we only wanted a quick burger to eat the "triple cooked chips" were barely once cooked frozen chips and the burger was not homemade - not really up to standard with a gbp12 pricetag and a hotel which sings the praises of its award winning restaurant! We told the waitress the food was not as described but she did not want to hear or apologise, despite asking us if our meal was ok. The feel of the hotel is very old fashioned and formal - the waitress takes your order in the lounge before you are later called through to the restaurant to eat (which was deathly silent and made eating a bit of an uncomfortable experience, and as mentioned we only wanted a quick bite). Overall, London prices but not up to the standard of gbp150 for a basic room.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Comfortable and relaxing - good service and food.
