My boyfriend and I found this hotel through mrandmrssmith.com and were highly impressed by the photographs so took advantage of their 2-for-1 nights on the weekends and booked a standard room.
We arrived a little earlier than the check in time of 2pm but this was not a problem and the girl on reception offered us a room upgrade for free to a top suite! Fantastic! We're not from the area so we asked her for reccomendations on where to go and she was extremely helpful.
Upon reaching our room we were highly impressed by the decor and furnishings...the room has enough sofas/chairs to sleep at least another 3 people in with us! The bedding was exceedingly comfortable and we took full advantage of the complimentary mini bar. My favourite part of this room though had to be the bathroom; WOW! The bath was like a tank and the rain style shower head provided a superb shower each day. Considering this hotel is situated alongside an airfield we heard no noise from planes what-so-ever so a great nights sleep was had by both of us.
On our first morning there we opted to take advantage of the room service for breakfast and were not disappointed by the quality of the room or the promptness of it's delivery to our suite. I chose to have the smoked salmon and scrambled egg bagel which I would reccomend to anyone! Our second morning we went down to the restaurant for breakfast and were not disappointed by the spread that was on offer.
The staff in the hotel were friendly and always greeting you in passing. We got back to our room on the Saturday night having being out and entered our room to find that staff had been in and changed our towels, turned down our bed, lit candles and put music on for us: a very nice touch I felt.
Overall we had a fantastic stay in this hotel and simply didn't want to leave! Myself and my boyfriend would definately reccomend a stay here to anyone looking for a little bit of a treat.
Also if you're looking for a nice pub to have a drink/food in we'd recommend "The Swan Inn" which is a 5 minute walk up the road. If you're willing to drive for about 10/15 minutes head for "The Thatched Cottage" pub...lovely little family pub with excellent beer garden.
