    • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

    A 'superior room' in the main building recently refurbished strangley with no furniture to apply make up, no safe in the room, despite a notice asking us to do use one, no tea or coffee facilities, no sanitary disposal bin in the bathroom, cold, with an undersized electric radiator, decent sized and comfortable bed. Bathroom extract fan not working and broken valve, so the shower and bath taps flowed at the same time. Breakfast was on benches where you served yourself from individual individual Bain Maries. Generally starting to look worn all round. On departure, the main room by reception was holding a regular booking of speed awareness course. We stayed here before, a couple of years ago under the 'De Vere' brand and paid less for a better experience. Looks like Theobolds is racing to the bottom now. A little sad for such a lovely location.

    Great hotel

    • Liked: Staff & service

    My wife and I stayed at the Hotel, which we have visited countless times. There was no mention on booking that it was being refurbished and no longer provided tea and coffee in the room nor a television. Not that this is crucial to a stay. The receptionist did upgrade us and apologised for the fact that the facilities were no longer provided. We understood and went to the room. There was a smell of paint which was noticeable. My wife suffers from asthma and did have difficulty breathing and had to take her inhaler. Not good hence the reason for the low rating this time and will be looking elsewhere to book next time. May I add that the breakfast which was extra was exceptional as usual and the staff, especially Clara were very professional, helpful and kept everything running smoothly. Thank you.

    Faded glory transformed into designer tat

    Used to be a faded glory location. Now they are "refurbishing". SO you'll get no television, no tea and coffee making (unless you ask at check in), no surface to work on in the room and decor more in keeping with a rural hotel in Greece than the history of the location. I was informed at reception its so that we want to step out of our rooms and use the hotel facilities (which when I was there were all closed but the bar!). This hotel does not seem to know what it wants to be - still a lot of business conference centre feel in the public areas, but completely out of step with the new decor in the rooms. So I will not go back again, which is a pity.

    Not what I excpected

    The outside of the building amazing grounds amazing but inside not very good at all they were doing massive refurbishment of which I wasn't informed as for breakfast no cold drinks available except Tap water. My son wanted a soft drink I was told no drinks available till 12 I found this unacceptable as it was supposed to be a 4 star hotel wasn't even a mini bar in the room very unhappy customer
