Positive Reviews

Competitive service; impressive surroundings

Guests appreciated the services provided in the hotel and rooms. The view of the gardens was loved by guests reminding them of the England a few decades back. Secret Gardens of Sandwiches which is right behind the hotel is a must-go.

Good staff; great breakfast

Most the guests loved the cheerful way they were greeted by the hotel staff. The owners of the hotel Dom& Steph were very friendly and spent sometime asking the well-being of all the guests around. Guests loved the breakfast spread that was freshly cooked with good quality products and the quick service by the hotel staff.

Clean rooms; welcome drinks

The rooms were immaculately kept and spotless clean with all the basic requirements. Beds were very comfortable and decorated very well. Guests were welcomed with sherry and whiskey.

Negative Reviews

Expensive rooms; no booking record

Some of the guests felt that the rooms were quite expensive for the facilities provided. They felt that the money was charged more for the guests to see the celebrity couple Dom & Steph. Some of the guests were shocked to see that there was no record of their booking on arrival.

Bathroom needed upgrading; weak Wi-Fi

There were water strains on the bathroom ceiling and toilet tiles, light switches and window frames were damaged. Carpets were stained and seals around the showers were terrible. Wi-Fi connection was very slow and guests had to keep connecting time and again making it a very irritating problem.

Wobbly entrance floor at Gardener's Cottage

The stone flooring outside the Gardener's Cottage was coming off and wobbly making one of the guests almost having a fall especially at night.
