Good Hotel Guide Review

A Victorian inn, originally built to house architects and craftsmen constructing nearby Waddesdon Manor, is now a ‘comfortable’ hotel run by the Rothschild family trust and the National Trust. Hotel guests receive complimentary entry to the manor house. The half-timbered, ornately patterned Grade II listed building retains wrought ironwork and Elizabethan chimneys; recent refurbishment has resulted in pleasing bedrooms with contemporary natural hues, some with original timbers. Light sleepers may hear traffic noise from the ‘busy’ road (some guests report barely noticing it). The ‘spruced-up’ restaurant produces ‘excellent, flavoursome cooking’, perhaps plaice, cauliflower, raisins, cauliflower carpaccio, cumin oil, alongside wines from the family’s vineyard. Breakfast choices include oak-smoked salmon, grilled kippers, a three-egg omelette.

Guest comments

'Nice hotel, We had a room in an outbuilding, to the side of the hotel, set well back from the road. It was quite small but adequate, and very comfortable. The restaurant was good. Service was exemplary. We stayed on the Historic House package: D,B&B for two together with tickets to Waddesdon Manor. Good value. ' - Peter Anderson - October, 2015
'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). ' - GC - July, 2014
