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.’

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
