The approach to the Manor House Hotel is astounding - and it just gets better. The food has a Michelin star, and it shows. The staff are delightful, the wine list excellent and nothing is too much trouble. It is difficult to raise any problems. I suppose the car park could have less trees over it. However, Local Government might object as Castle Combe is a complete architectural gem and the car park is next to a medieval church. The main drawback is, naturally, the price. You will need very deep pockets all the time. However, it is my experience that you get what you pay for and if you can't 'cut the mustard' go to a lesser place.
Recent, purpose built, avenue of rooms provide a very high standard of accommodation. This is then complemented by a characterful pub with a superb menu and brilliant cooking, both for breakfast and for main meals. Serving staff were friendly and attentive and Mike the receptionist and maitre d' looked after us extremely well. We were delighted by our stay.

Wonderful hotel, with very friendly and helpful staff who provide first class service. Didn't know what to expect, as these kind of hotels can often be pretentious and stuffy. Not here! Made us feel very welcome. Free room upgrade to a deluxe room - which was fantastic and a lovely surprise. Great food and service in the Brasserie. The walled gardens (especially near the brasserie) are quite beautiful and a credit to the gardening team. Overall a very relaxing, quiet stay in a friendly and welcoming luxury hotel. Went for a bike ride(on the free hotel bikes) around the extensive hotel grounds, great fun and a great way of exploring the 500(?) acres! Reassuringly expensive, and worth the money. Superb.
