Great rural location and about to be refurbished.

Posted 16-Oct-2016
Pros: Location and proximity to attractions and activities in the area.
Cons: The omelette!
A real mix of old and new in this a very pretty rural location. The historic house has an interesting history while the valley it overlooks was designed by Capability Brown. Interesting history especially it's role in the second World War. The newer sections of the centre are fairly typical of a modern conference centre and that's very much what it is. Leisure centre, meeting rooms, long corridors set out in various buildings but it works well. There is a major refurbishment underway and certainly parts of the hotel are looking somewhat tired. Staff were helpful and as we used to live in the area we know our way around anyway but it could be tricky if you didn't know the area. We ate at The Bricklayers Arms in Flaunden (abound 2miles away) which was excellent. Breakfast was inevitably a buffet although offering also omelettes, however mine was burnt and lacking the ham I had ordered so I would stick with the buffet!

Beautiful old building

Posted 04-Oct-2016
Check in good, friendly staff, room was small with large bathroom.ain hotel in need of some refurbishment, especially on corridor from reception to the old house.Many steps up and down along main corridor make access difficult. Health club not used except for swimming pool which was excellent.

Beautiful building in a spectacular setting.

Posted 28-Aug-2016
Pros: I think it had to be the ambience of the old building together with the setting, and ofcourse the food was first class.
Cons: Yes, they were promoting liqueur coffee so we decided to indulge and it wasn't good. The coffee is supposed to be piping hot but it was Luke warm.
Location: The location is idylic, as we were only there for one night we can't comment on the things to do near by.
My friend and I treated our respective partners to a one night stay at this hotel. We had the most wonderful time, the staff were good, the food was excellent and the setting was just amazing. The only minor complaint I would have was the view from the bedroom which was a roof with air conditioning units, but we we only there for the night so not a huge problem.

It's ok

Posted 11-Aug-2016
Pros: Staff were very friendly. The hotel setting is very nice.
Cons: Resolve the issues I detailed above.
Location: The location of the hotel is ok with lovely views.
My room looked very tired. The bathroom had mould in the grout between the tiles. Some of the wallpaper in the bedroom was peeling off the walls. The bed was very hard, I liked that but some may not. The hotel either has or is just about to start a refurbishment programme, so I imagine thirst problems will be resolved in due course. There is free wifi, but I had problems staying connected as it kept groping out. It is a bit of a maze to get to the bar and restaurant but when I eventually found the bar, it was clean. I had a bar meal, so didn't use the restaurant but the meal I ate was nice. I may have just been unlucky with the room I was allocated.

Wonderful location.

Wonderful setting in the countryside. Very picturesque historic building, well worth looking up the full story. Very comfortable room in the annexe. The interior of the main building could do with a good clean. Bar area has a musty smell. Good staff. Plenty free parking. Food is ok but not great portions. Sit out the front of the main building overlooking the valley and river with a drink - fantastic!

Perfect location.

Rooms pretty small, cramped and dark. Grounds and surroundings beautiful. They fly the EU flag as well as the Union Jack - well done de Veres!

Glorious setting, poor rooms.

Posted 08-Jul-2016 on Hotels
Positives first: Beautiful old building, lovely grounds and glorious Chilterns countrside. However the rooms in the 'stableblock' are really small. I was alone, but a couple would be constantly in each other's way. There is just enough space around the bed to move around, otherwise no other space. Nowhere to keep a suitcase, wardrobe contains ironing board and fan so hanging space limited. No full length bath. In addition corridor door slamming repeatedly - the door closer totally ineffective. Even budget hotels have corridor doors pinned back on a solenoid these days. If you are thinking of staying here refuse a room in the stableblock and ask for one in the main building. I suspect that guest are allocated the small rooms first, and the hotel hopes they don't complain.
