1st, the car park, the entrance is not clearly marked and a few feet after it is a toll - 60 pence so if you miss entrance you have to turn round and pay again. The car park is v v cramped and spaces tight. The "lodge" is v unattractive & we were grateful to be staying in the main hotel. We had booked a double room but over our 2 night stay we are convinced that this is in fact a single room. 2 single beds had been joined together, covered by an ugly beige blanket. There was only 1 bedside table (unusual in a double room) no room for 2. The bedside table had 2 drawers which we had to squeeze clothes into. The only other drawers were on a tiny dressing table which were not deep enough to hold a t-shirt. There were only 5 coat hangers in the wardrobe, not enough for two people especially when there werent even hooks on the door for coats. The "luxury" toiletries were anything but. The TV was on a wall at a 90 degree angle to the bed impossible to watch unless you sat on the floor in front of it.
We used the restaurant on the 1st night. We asked for a bottle of pinot grigio only to be told " sorry, we have no pinot grigio or chardonnay" The excuse for this was apparantly the 4 day jubilee bank holiday (we arrived on the weds) the food we had was great though and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
We went to the Bathampton mill across the road for a meal the next night to be offered a few choices of pinot grigio!! (out of interest on our return to the old mill that night we enquired after the elusive pinot again to find they still didnt have any, in fact they had no dry whites on offer. The jubilee weekend had ende 2 days before!)
Breakfast was not good, the full english is v disappointing. The sausage is pale and unappealing (obviously microwaved) and the bacon, chewy.
The hotel is in a superb location and on our visit the staff were v friendly but other factors let them down.
