Steeped in history, this Elizabethan manor house boasts 11 acres of grounds incorporating a 100-year-old topiary garden, a fountain and an 11th-century church where William Shakespeare is said to have married Anne Hathaway.

The pretty town of Stratford-upon-Avon, where you'll find Shakespeare's Birthplace, Anne Hathaway's Cottage and Mary Arden's Farm, is less than 10 minutes away by car. Warwick, known for its massive Norman castle, Charlecote Park, Tudor World and Ragley Hall (considered one of England's finest Palladian mansions) are all less than 20 minutes' drive away.

Facilities at the hotel include a health club with a gym, an indoor swimming pool, a sauna and a steam room, plus tennis courts, a yoga hut and beauty rooms. Alternatively, guests can relax in the library, which was reputedly visited by Shakespeare himself.

The hotel's Stuart Restaurant is split into two areas within the old manor house: an oak-panelled dining room and The Great Hall, which has a minstrels' gallery.

Rooms are split between the Manor House and the Cedar Barns (a short walk from the main building). Standard and Superior Rooms are mainly located in the Cedar Barns. All have traditional décor and views of the hotel grounds. Wi-Fi is free.

Most of the staff we dealt with were pleasant and, I imagine, the hotel grounds would be very attractive in summer.

I had booked the visit as a surprise for for my partner's birthday - we were disappointed at the quality of the food. It was devoid of flavour for the most part. My starter of Chicken and leek terrine was served so chilled as to be tasteless - none of the flavours of the ingredients were identifiable. My main course of sea bass consisted of 2 tiny fillets served on a small portion of potatoes which were not very hot. My dessert was a mixture of watery sorbet without any real flavour. Our plans to have a pleasant, quiet drink in the bar after the meal were scuppered by the raucous behaviour of some guests from a wedding party.

One grip was a lack of information on the services at the hotel.

The building itself, which was beautiful. Very atmospheric rooms, especially the Great Hall and Restaurant. The staff were excellent and could not do enough. The meal was delicious - with a good choice of selections. Unusual for an inclusive meal, and a very pleasant surprise. Rooms were good sized, very comfortable with all necessary amenities.
