      Beautiful hotel, in a beautiful setting, though feel the prices charged for rooms, food, drinks are excessive for what you actually get, so not real value for money. I've stayed in some exceptional hotels in Dubai, Vegas, LA for less per night. Thankfully I was able to get a reduced price with Agoda, though still quite pricey for what you get in return. Sadly, I had an issue on checkout where I was charged twice for drinks, though eventually rectified with a staff member. Shame there wasn't another restaurant as I wasn't able to get a booking for an evening meal, topped off with a mix up on my order for breakfast with room service, where they then charged me as though I'd had 2 breakfasts. (Considering you get a choice of 2 eggs with full English, so asked for one to be poached and other scrambled on a piece of brown toast, as I cant eat white bread). No full English, just egg/toast. I couldn't be bothered to explain to the receptionist as well so just paid and left. Spoiled my stay.

      Countryside retreat”

      Spa with swimming pool was superb

      It's not the easiest hotel to find even though it's tucked away between Watford and Rickmansworth, however the welcome is lovely , with a receptionist who will check you in and then show you to your room. My room was comfortable and exactly as I expected. Once you find your way around the hotel ( there are well signed short cuts) you start to feel at home. The spa and pool is a must. If you play golf, they have their own course (I don't). The restaurant is more of a carvery than a Buffett with an impressive choice. Service is not quite 5 star, more 4.5 particularly in the lounge, where the 'manager ' tried to keep the tables empty for afternoon tea, from lunchtime. Don't like having to argue to sit in a lounge, so my lite lunch became a pot of jasmine tea. The bar was lively at night and the service very good. Overall a very nice stay but I wouldn't have been so happy if I had of paid rack rate instead of agoda's reduced rate.
