An impressive list of famous guests, including both Charles I and Oliver Cromwell, have stayed at this rambling Tudor coaching inn with beams and inglenooks, panelled walls and leaded windows. Edward VII motored down in 1905. Evelyn Waugh visited, and no doubt revisited. It was in the doldrums when Iconic Luxury Hotels (see also Chewton Glen, New Milton, and Cliveden House, Taplow) came to the rescue in 2017. Today it offers a wide choice of accommodation, from doubles furnished with antiques and paintings to four-poster suites. Modern, airy courtyard suites open on to landscaped terraced gardens. Despite refurbishment and redesign of the ‘wonderful building’, adding a spa and a 13-metre indoor pool, a reader noted a chipped bath, and reported that ‘the air con sounded like Concorde’. The ambience is family-friendly. You can take tea by the fire or alfresco, order panini and pizzette in the wine bar, or dine on such classics as fish and chips or beef Wellington in the Grill, its walls crammed with historic portraits. ‘Our meal was fine. Italian friends were astonished by the natural beauty of the surroundings and loved the place.’ (Jonathan Rose, and others)

It is a wonderful building. It’s not often you stay in a building 600 years old. Our meal was fine and our room was comfortable. It could’ve done with some TLC, the air-com sounded like Concorde until we turned it off, the bath was chipped and the basin plug did not work. Overall though it was an excellent experience

As a wheelchair user, staying in the main hotel isn’t an option as it is a historic coaching inn so we usually stay in a Deluxe Courtyard Room as it’s accessible from the side of the hotel, has wide doors and a roll in shower with luxurious decor, dressing gowns etc. Not a cheap hotel but it has a lovely feel, and the staff are very pleasant and helpful. When we’re there we feel very much at home.
