Given that this hotel was built only in the 60s, it offers a lot of olde English charm, in keeping with the Tudor-esque theme of the surrounding area. It's also done with a lot more taste than some of its more recent competitors (and followers).
While the decor is very telling of its late 60s/70s origins (eg. red lampshades and dark wood), it also lends the establishment quite a bit of anachronistic charm.
One thing you won't find here is Basil Fawlty, though, as the hotel management and staff are all very friendly and helpful.
No pretentious foams, baths or bubbles on the restaurant menu as it serves honest down to earth fare in sensibly-sized portions. The continental breakfast buffet is basic and baked goods/pastries are only average. The hot cooked-to-order breakfasts are a better bet.
Our Junior Suite was very roomy yet cosy, and furnished with a four poster bed and other fittings and furniture in keeping with the Tudor inn theme, with views over the rose garden and dam. The room was large enough to feel relaxed spending a rainy afternoon in, reading and lounging on the sofa. Freshly cut roses in the room was a lovely touch. The bathroom was large, clean and well-ventilated.
Cosy bar and living room with a fireplace are very pleasant for pre and post prandial drinks.
Enjoyed a nice massage in the newly-set up spa.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and had a very relaxing time. Will recommend this place to family and friends.
