Good Hotel Guide Review

Near the gates of Waddesdon Manor, this half-timbered, ornately patterned Grade II listed building was built in 1887 to house the architects and craftsmen working on the manor itself. Today a hotel with ‘comfortable’, smartly styled bedrooms, it is run by the Rothschild family trust for the National Trust. Recently refurbished rooms in the main house and converted coach house vary in size. Light sleepers, ring to discuss room choices before booking: guests in a room overlooking the main road reported a barely-there ‘hum’ of traffic (‘it didn’t disturb us’); others found the road noise insistent. ‘Good’ seasonal menus are served in the busy restaurant or courtyard garden (‘but the menu didn’t change during our three-night stay’). A well-chosen selection of Rothschild wines is fine accompaniment. ‘We loved the wine list.’ A popular venue for weddings and exclusive-use events. Hotel guests receive a complimentary ticket for the grounds of Waddesdon Manor. Bar, restaurant. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). Background music. Civil wedding licence. 1-acre garden. Children welcomed. 16 bedrooms (5 in Old Coach House, 3 in courtyard on ground floor). Per room B&B single £95, double £145, D,B&B single £125, double £205.

Guest comments

'The staff were friendly, the room was comfortable, the food good;, and the hotel had good vibes. We had the last room, overlooking the main road. Traffic noise was a hum and did not bother us. The rooms are away from the main house so you would need an umbrella in bad weather. We enjoyed a drink in the courtyard (there seemed to be no residents’ lounge). And we enjoyed both dinner and breakfast (a good cold buffet and wide choice of cooked dishes). ' - G C - July, 2014
'A comfortable hotel with good rooms and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Although on a busy road the hotel is surprisingly peaceful inside and our bedroom in the courtyard was very quiet. Good food in the restaurant and a complimentary glass of champagne added a nice touch. Rather limited lounge space. ' - Michael Cornelius - December, 2011
