    Rooms require refurbishment. Price of breakfast was extortionate and should be included in the room price. Selection of drinks at bar was very limited and staff inexperienced.

    Due to a late flight I arrived much later than anticipated and am gutted that I didn't get to spend as long as I wanted in this hotel. Staff were friendly, uber professional and helpful. My room was a very nice double in the West Wing, all mod cons yet it seemed to fit the historical decor. I was gutted upon checkout that I didn't have the foresight to book additional nights here - what a bargain! It is in a beautiful location, fantastic views and stunning kerb appeal. Will def go back if in the vicinity (or within 100 miles!)

    My bedroom was at the end of a long corridor and down a set of 3 steps, which I didn't see as I was carrying bags etc, and wasn't warned about, so I had an accident when I fell down them - was hurt pride more than anything but potentially dangerous. Also, once in my room I had to go back up 3 steps to my miniscule bathroom. Weird layout. The tea/coffee etc were in the desk cupboard and I had to take the kettle, tray, cups etc out myself, find space and find a plug. A lot of work for a cuppa! Also, bar/ restaurant were fully closed when I got there at 11pm, and room service prices were severe so I ended up going to bed on a very empty stomach. Could also hear noises from next door - thin walls.

    Our visit was a birthday pressie for my husband. We stayed in the king james suite - where this king stayed on his way to london for his coronation. We loved the history of it all. Room was huge and had fabulous views. Staff were really nice. We had a bar meal on the night which was lovely & fresh! And my husband loved the full breakfast the next morning.

    Just be careful if you're wanting to book the king james suite. A picture of it is.included with the offers on the suites for £160/£170 which I thought was great! I asked the hotel if we could have this room but they rang and told me this room was not included in the offer and it cost £245. I DID EMAIL TO SAY I THOUGHT THIS WAS MISLEADING & A BIT UNFAIR
