4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Attended wedding and booked superior double. Room enormous with lovely view, four poster bed, two arm chairs , tea making facilities. Bed was so comfortable . Quite firm which his my preference. Large immaculate bathroom with a bath you could lie full length in and gallons of hot water. Breakfast was good but the restaurant was rather chilly for this time of year. My only negative comment is that the carpeting in bedroom and main staircase was past its sell by date and really needs replacing. I did not use Spa facilities. Knights Hall was a great venue for the wedding and the staff were friendly .

Golden Oldie
Lovely periodic hotel, if you are staying here don't expect the usual plush modern hotel , this is a 700 year old building with all the quirks that come with an old building. Food was good and the staff helpful so all in all recommended

Manor House hotel - March 2018
The hotel is very quirky and unusual - set out in the manner of Henry VIII!. very good (if hot!) gym, lovely four-poster bed and huge bedroom in #'10. Beautiful hotel, that is certainly not "just like the rest".
