I'd had this hotel on my radar for some years and regret not coming sooner. I've missed out on a comfortable and culinary experience.
My wife and myself arrived to see two McLaren sports cars either side of the front door and a Rolls Royce in the car park. A good start for this petrol head. Apparently, McLaren had a meeting in the hotel.
We were warmly greeted by the reception staff and a porter assisted with our luggage.
The micro-size lift, with literary decoration, took us to the second floor, where our room
(Lake Room) was situated. It had a lovely aspect across gardens and Rutland Water, at the rear of the hotel. On a cold day it was delightfully warm and cosy. A very minor issue was that the bathroom window would not close fully. The frame needed attention, but it was only a small gap, and the radiator and towel rail within the room provided more than adequate heating.
The food was excellent, both in the evening and at breakfast, and the staff efficient and friendly. Literally, service with a smile, and great to see. My wife is a little fussy with her food, but nothing was too much trouble for the serving and kitchen staff. All her needs were met.
We will definitely return, and not leave it so long next time.More
