An Enjoyable Nights Stay

My wife and I joined friends as we celebrated our wedding anniversary on Friday 1st with one of the deals (£229.00 BBD) and stayed in the Anne Boleyn room (spacious, clean and tidy. slippers, bathrobe, bottled water,tea and coffee, good toiletries...Terrible wifi....kept dropping service.)
We arrived at approx 4.15 after a terrible five hour journey (back on the M5) and checked immediately into our room (helpfully taken up with our cases) and I was upset to notice that a single rose and truffles I had booked via email (which they confirmed) was not there (although a note from The Team wishing us a Anniversary Celebration). We went straight down to the lounge to have a drink and await our friends whilst I also mentioned to the lady on reception what had happened to my wife's rose/truffles. She said she would look into it and within ten minutes brought them in the lounge and apologised that they had gone to the incorrect room (somebody nearly became happy, good job they had not checked in yet.)
Our party of six met in the lounge at 7.15 for drinks and canapes (very nice) whilst we perused the menu (£42.00 two course..part of the deal). The restaurant meals were enjoyable with the amuse bouche tasty but my main course of partridge spoilt by being dry, over cooked). Drinks during and after were of good quality and fair price.
The breakfast was very good both the cooked (lovely smoked salmon and scrambled egg) and continental buffet plus able to read my newspaper after (why charge an extra £0.50...is it for the newspaper boy ?).
The service by staff throughout were attentive and pleasant but having not organised my rose/truffle and how presented I would have thought they would not have charged. (especially if the other customers had arrived early they would have).

Lovely stay in the Duke's Bedchamber
Jeremy B

We stayed in the Duke's Bedchamber for one night. It was everything we hoped for, with a comfy 4-poster, a sofa and all mod-cons such as en-suite, TV, wi-fi and a small fridge. There were 2 bottles of water in the fridge and the usual hospitality tray. Good quality toiletries and towelling robes and slippers. Really quirky to have the stone spiral staircase up to the room and the massive "medieval" door key.

We had a good evening meal in the Lounge as we didn't fancy the menu in the main restaurant. The cooked breakfast was good, with a modest continental buffet.

The hotel grounds were nice to walk around, even in October. The greenhouses, chickens and quail were interesting. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

Medieval splendour

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary and wanted something special, we weren’t disappointed. We stayed in one of the turret rooms, up the winding stone stairway we found our huge room with a four poster bed, and panoramic views across to the Severn river on one side and church on the other. We found ourselves imagining whIch of the Tudors had trod the same footsteps before.

We were treated to great service and attention to detail from all the staff, it really made this an occasion to remember.
