Good Hotel Guide Review

This 17th-century manor house of honeyed Cotswold stone looks every bit the smart country house hotel. Inside, all is relaxed and informal, with board games in the lounge and Hunter wellies by the entrance. It has been owned by the Munir family since the late 1990s. Passionate collectors, they have added artwork and decorative pieces to the interiors where traditional decor (button-back armchairs, pleated pelmets, floral wallpaper) meets quirky contemporary style. Bedrooms are in the main house and the attached converted barn and granary. Lords rooms are the largest – one has a colonial four-poster bed, another a bay window overlooking the gardens – but all offer a laid-back, luxurious feel, with embroidered silk throws, coffee- and tea-making facilities plus elderflower pressé and Damana toiletries. There are two restaurants: the fine-dining Atrium and the less formal Dining Room. Menus, including an imaginative vegan menu and a vegetarian tasting menu, are created by chef Charles Smith; service is ‘confident and assured’. ‘We had a very good time and hope to return,’ says one recent guest.
