Good Hotel Guide Review

With swimming pools, family films, play facilities, a crèche and an early-morning breakfast club, the kids are all right at this Georgian manor house in ‘beautiful’ countryside. ‘It’s a treat for families with young children,’ say Guide readers in 2016, ‘though we wouldn’t call it “luxury”.’ ‘Moonfleet really is geared for kids,’ writes another, with just a hint of the curmudgeon. ‘There are early teas for children alone, and high teas for the whole family. Mercifully children are not allowed at dinner.’ Find potted plants, hunting trophies and open fires in the public areas. ‘Spacious, comfortable’ bedrooms come in all shapes and sizes to suit. ‘Ours had an elegant, modern, Edwardian-style bathroom, but no shower other than a hand-held one.’ Dinner is ‘excellent, with plenty of choice’ (pastas, salads, sharing platters and more ambitious dishes), and staff are ‘friendly and courteous’, though guests this year found ordering chaotic. A grouse: ‘“Discretionary” gratuities are automatically added to every bill.’ Mornings, wake to a ‘good’ breakfast: a buffet with juice, cereals, ‘delicious’ jams; ‘very good’ cooked options. (Jane Bradley, and others)

Guest comments

'A treat for families with young children, though we would not call it luxury. The facilities for children were excellent. Communicating bedrooms, high teas, creche, play activities both indoors and out, Breakfast Club, etc. Reception and bedrooms were spacious and interestingly furnished, and had a pleasant, relaxing feeling. The food, though not exceptional, was acceptable but we thought it expensive. The staff were courteous and friendly. ' - Jane Bradley - February, 2016
