I booked 2 nights and paid over £300, which didn’t include breakfast, for a Cosy Double room in a luxury hotel which is part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World group.
I expected the room to be small, which it was but I also expected, hoped the decor to be as shown as per ALL the photos on the website and on the hotel booking site I used. Even a small room can be decorated to make it in keeping with the hotel you are staying in but ours really wasn’t. We could have been staying at any gatwick airport hotel, It was the most basic cheap looking decor. My bedroom at home is more luxurious! I was SO disappointed when we were shown to our room especially when we missed our first night due to flight cancellations so was really looking forward to some luxury....it really wasn’t. We stayed in the main house in the Hever room. I would not want to stay in there again.
We had dinner in the restaurant which should have felt cosy and intimate but it really didn’t. The food was nice enough but it didn’t blow me away as I had hoped, again quite average.
In all it was a very expensive stay and we left disappointed and underwhelmed as what should have felt special and luxurious was just a very average stay in a lovely looking hotel. More
