We stayed with friends on a Sunday night, enjoyed delicious afternoon tea and later an incredible 3 course meal in the hotels restaurant. The hotel was quiet but the atmosphere totally warm and welcoming with friendly staff throughout the hotel and roaring fires in most of the public areas. We stayed in room 8... The Compton suite which was fabulous...

Although we only live 20 miles away we went to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were lucky and were upgraded to a truly stunning suite. I had mentioned very briefly when booking a table for dinner the week before that it was my wife's birthday. They took the trouble to leave her some chocolates and a card. A small gesture...

We went for dinner on a special night out. We had eaten in both the Garden room and the Gallery before, and this time went up-market. It was a chilly pre-Xmas night and the welcome on arrival was excellent; confident but in no way obsequious. We we put in the bar by an open fire and served our choice of...

went to the cavendish just for breakfast for my 21st. Couldn't have been happier with the experience. The rooms was decorated very posh and stylish. The staff couldn't have done more for you and were very well spoken, a young man was particular helpful and nice but can't remember his name. It's something like £18 for a full english, coffee...

We booked a night in a superior room with evening meal in the Gallery Restaurant as a pre Christmas treat. The cost was £308 to include 5% gratuity for the staff which is taken automatically - without discretion. The reception was friendly but on each occasion I used it (checking in, out and requesting a shower cap) I had to...

Dear Julie Many thanks for the feedback: I will be discussing the points you raised with my team to see where we can improve. On a small note, admittedly we don't stock the 'standard' hotel bathroom items you mention in the bathroom, I feel they can look awfully messy - we do stock them of course, on request, and these...

Took my partner away for his birthday, decided upon the cavendish. We arrived and had the fortune of being upgraded which was a pleasant surprise.

We took elderly relatives for special Boxing Day lunch. They were well looked after, given extra cushions for seating, a quiet separate room (ideal when coping with 'hearing difficulties'). Lovely menu just right for the occasion, We would do it again.

We went to stay at the cavendish before our baby arrives. It could not have been better. The room was very comfy and done up in a great country house style. The food was great.
