friendly helpfull staff
room on first night too small for a double, changed room second night all ok
nice location, good but reasonably expensive food
all or nothing heating that sounded like a bank of extractor fans. very staid atmosphere. the most uncomfortable bed i have ever not slept on, not what you would expect from a "quality" hotel. we may still visit again but will run a mile if they try putting us in room 240, a definite no-no.
lovely setting ideal location for exploring cotswolds
we had the last room available which was atwin not a double as booked. The rooms were extremely warm(too warm) even with the fan supplied. Breakfasr was pletiful and varied but very average buffet style and the warmers tend to dry the food out and not keep it very warm at all. The second day was slightly better.
