This was our second visit to this hotel. The hotel is spacious and clean with beautiful gardens with a pleasant outdoor seating area. The staff are friendly and helpful and you can tell they care about their customers. The breakfast was also excellent. We will definitely visit again.

Lovely setting in a convenient location, rooms and furnishings are a little tired and rooms need some TLC, although function fine. Had a staff member walk into my room, without knocking - he carried on describing the room to a potential guest and pretended not to see me lying on the bed !!! a mumbled non apology and nothing was mentioned afterwards when he was querying my breakfast timings, very uncomfortable - won’t be staying again.

Nice small , older hotel
Beautiful property with a few rooms. More of a wedding venue with nice back garden and large dining room . Our room was large. Some toilet and shower issues but not a deal stopper. Spotty Wi-Fi . About 40 minutes from Heathrow. Not too much else nearby - we stayed as staging area to get into Heathrow and to avoid chain hotels. Priced appropriately in my opinion
