Thank you for your review and comments regarding your most recent stay with us. We apologise for the ladybirds in the room, as you mentioned on check out, during your discussions with our General Manager and in your review on TripAdvisor. As we are set in the country park, we do have a slight issue with ladybirds at this time of year, which is managed in a considerate manner. I must apologise for any distress the presence of the ladybirds has caused, and can assure you that your feedback has been taken on board and will be used to improve the experience for future guests. I have spoken with the Receptionist who informs that she apologised on the morning, and mentioned that she would pass on your comments regarding the ladybirds to our Housekeeping Team and for us to address accordingly. If she had been made aware that you was looking at a discount or some kind of refund, which you imply you was, she would have been able to have asked the Duty Manager to discuss this with you that morning. I spoke with her also regarding other points, however she cannot not recall you mentioning the 'rash on your forehead', therefore we are unable to comment on this. Had we be made aware of the ladybirds during your stay we would have happily moved you into a different room - we wouldn't expect you and your partner to have to suffer their presence. I understand you contacted asking for a refund because of the ladybirds in the room. I have spoken with our General Manager who I believe explained that as the presence of ladybirds in the room was beyond our control and not something that could intentionally prevented, we wouldn't be in a position to give you a full refund. As we weren't informed during your stay, and therefore not given an opportunity to rectify this for you, we apologise again for this, however as a gesture, I understand that he offered 30% discount off your next stay. I must apologise if you found the General Manager to be rude, however this was not his intention and on behalf of the hotel I apologise if this was the case. As a hotel, we feel that a 50% refund was sufficient as an apology and recompense for the ladybirds in your bedroom. You are correct in your understanding that all Best Western hotels are independently owned. We thank you for taking the time to review your stay.

Arrival was fine. Sat nav didn’t like post code. Speed humps are excessive. Pot holes are an issue. Wouldn’t want to do it in the dark. Beautiful building. Basin taps were loose. Toilet seat was very loose. Shower wasn’t, it was a dribble. And it was cold. Some people may enjoy

Thank you for your review, following your most recent stay with us. I am disappointed that you found that the bathroom in your bedroom, didn't meet your requirements and therefore this affected your overall stay with us. I have taken all your feedback on board and will address the concerns with the maintenance team & also highlight this to our Head Housekeeper. We do have signs in the rooms to indicate that on some occasions you may need to run the water for a short while, however I apologise if this wasn't visible in your room. I, again, have asked our Housekeeping Team to ensure they check and replace any signage missing, regarding the water, which would inform future guests. In relations to your comments regarding the excessive speed bumps, pot holes and approach to the hotel, this unfortunately is land which belongs to the council, as it is a public highway, therefore unfortunately we have little to with the drive up to the hotel. However, apologies if this affected your initial arrival. I am, however, delighted that you enjoyed the beautiful building in which our hotel is set. Thank you again for your review.

A beautiful hotel set in a fantastic location, tall trees, garden and victorian building dripping with history. Fantastic lobby with classical furniture and a bar, little did I know that it would be our nemesis at 3:00 am in the morning. A 24 hour bar, some very noisy selfish

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback following your recent stay with us. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed our stunning setting and great building set within the country park. I am also happy to read that our lobby/bar area impressed too. I am, however, disappointed to hear that you were kept awake until the early hours due to a number of guests using the bar area. I recall the Duty Manager/Night Porter informing that they did speak with the guests regarding the noise levels in the bar area, however I apologise on behalf of the guests using the bar for the noise they may have caused. I do also note that the Duty Manager/Night Porter did close the bar earlier, at 1.30am, to assist you in the best way possible. I am pleased, however, that the room overall was large with comfy beds and the bathroom was clean.

Have just returned home from a 3 night stay here and couldn't have asked for anything better. The room was a lot bigger than expected, bed ever so comfy and it was so quiet. Breakfast was a buffet breakfast but all food was hot and they do poached or scrambled eggs if you ask.

Do you accept dogs
Yes they do. We took ours and they allowed her in an area near to the bar. Lots of walks just outside the door in the woods which is very handy too.
