Perfect spot in the country

Posted 11-Apr-2017
Pros: It's an old English mannor. They have a library that was used by Shakespeare himself!
Cons: An elevator
Location: It's near Shakespeare birth place lots to see and excellent shopping.
We decided to stay in the country an extra day before returning to London and found this jem. It is a very quiet country cottage. Better than a bed and breakfast, and everyone was delightful. The room was very large. No elevator, but they will help with bags. We didn'the have time to stay for breakfast but it looks to have a full restaurant. We highly recommend staying here.

food came late, overcooked, asked for garlic bread to eat while having drinks turned up 20 mins after bar meal, it was dried out had been left under grill, had to queue for 15 mins in a line for breakfast and then 10-15mins waiting for hot buffet to arrive in another queue, after 6 people being served half of the buffet was gone, couldn't wait any longer, room had cob webs hanging from bed post, smelt very musty. Hotel has lovely surroundings, need to get their act together, disorganised.

Lovely hotel full of corridoors..

Posted 19-Feb-2017
Spent one night in this lovely hotel ideally situated for our day out in Warwick Castle. Very helpful and friendly staff all round especially the 4 month in position Italian barman where we had our evening barmeal and he told me the way to make a 'perfect' Irish coffee. Lots of board games and cards at reception that we could use were a nice finish to our evening. if i had one wish it would be for more lighting particularly in the bedrooms.

Tired hotel and pokey

Just has a lot of ground to make up on other hotels. Best Western need to either sell-up or cough up some much needed refurbishment money and recruit for attitude and friendliness.

Beautiful hotel

Only there for one night, great place to stay. Food was great as well as the staff. Wasn't overpriced. Beautiful old worldly charm

lovely surroundings

Posted 01-Nov-2016
Pros: Grounds and grandeur
Cons: speed of service especially at the prices charged
Location: Great with many options for visits
Rooms comfortable, carpets needed cleaning. Breakfast substantial but only warm, delays in the supply of hot food (delivered in small amounts i.e. 4 eggs at a time, not enough to supply the queue)and on two occasions we waited over 30 minutes for our breakfast beverages.

Very disappointing.

Posted 01-Nov-2016 on Hotels
Our room was small & overpriced. (We requested an upgrade but there were no rooms available.)The covers on the two chairs were badly stained & there was not enough lighting. One day we arrived back after a day out at 4.15 p.m.& the room had not been serviced-it was then 'cleaned'in less than 10 minutes. Breakfast on one day was shambolic,with many couples having to wait in an ante room for a table & every day there were items not available without a wait. We picked this hotel because we have been to one of it's 'sister'hotels (which is wonderful)& because it has a pool & spa-the pool is not designed for swimming,the changing room is tiny,cramped & the showers & sinks were dirty. The seating area outside had a coffee/water area which was awful-a filthy towel in front of the water container.We only used it once. Our ordered papers did not arrive. The staff were excellent & the building & grounds are lovely but there were too many disappointments to return.

Lovely hotel in beautiful grounds

Posted 31-Oct-2016 on Hotels
A lovely hotel in beautiful grounds with friendly and helpful staff. However the restaurant has a very limited "speciality" menu and although there is an additional seasonal menu with a good choice of dishes this cannot be eaten in the restaurant and has to be eaten in the bar whch isn't really set up for comfortable dining. On our day of arraival there was no room to eat in the restaurant, so be sure to book this in advance if you wish to dine there on your first night.
