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.

Essentially a very nice hotel with pleasant staff. Reception facilities are a little odd being in a sort of cupboard but bar, lobby and restaurant were very pleasant. Decoration was to a very high standard only a few minor issues that stopped me giving an excellent. A couple of light bulbs were out in the room and bathroom and the sealant on the side of the bath needed to be renewed. High Noon had internet but it wouldn't connect in fact it was difficult to get WiFi anywhere in the hotel despite ther being a strong signal. Evening meal was of a high standard but I don't like eating steak off a chopping board and the portions were a tad small for me. Had to wait for the chef to come in, in the morning between 7:30 and 7:45 so getting breakfast before an early start at work is a little risky although well worth waiting for. All in all though very good value for money.
