Gorgeous Georgian pile business-hotel & no flair
Posted Nov 7, 2016
I can see why the majority will love this place. Enjoyed my stay. However with its potential to be a true country house, shouting at you, this has been lost. All the furniture matches, with everything spotless, even the three table-lamps in our room were each identical.
It looked as if the whole room had furniture sourced at the same department store, and on the same day. Like walking into an 'executive home' or a 'exclusive' business-grade hotel. Perfect and at all times matching and heaven-forbid, it had to be symetrical. I can concede, golf-club man will love this place. I can see the Range Rooney or the Audi pulling-up in the parking area now.
Me? it left me cold, but I fear I'm not the typical guest. A house like this should have the touch of its origin, yet that takes not money, but flare. It could have been done for less than has been spent. And I can see why 'department-store' appointments are there. They are quick, and it works. The majority aspire to this anyway.
It's for 'corporate-man'. If you or your partner have been on one of those seminars for 'winners' (and you have such thing as a CV) you're going to love it.
It 'was' a country house. That feel has been lost. Which is a shame.
