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. Rooms in the main house and converted coach house vary in size and decor (those in the main house are more traditional); some may display contemporary artworks, others may have Edwardian antique furnishings from the family collection. 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). No 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 from £116, D,B&B from £165.
