Good Hotel Guide Review
Originally built to house the architects and craftsmen working on nearby Waddesdon Manor, this half-timbered, ornately patterned Grade II listed building is today a ‘comfortable’ hotel run by the Rothschild family trust in conjunction with the National Trust. (Hotel guests receive complimentary tickets to visit the manor house.) Recent refurbishment has resulted in modern country-style bedrooms, well appointed in soothing natural hues. Ring to discuss room choices: some guests report noise from the ‘busy’ A road; others are untroubled by it. In the smart restaurant (‘spruced up and in good shape’), ‘the cooking is excellent’: ‘flavourful’ lime and lemongrass-crusted smoked salmon, perhaps, or loin of pork served with ‘tasty deep-fried black pudding balls and an interesting parsnip gratin’. ‘Good service, too – we were left to sit and chat until we were ready to leave.’
