The room was large but snug with a lot of drawers and a walk-in wardrobe and a wet-room type modern bathroom. We were given the choice of housekeeping or not and of new towels and linen every day or not All the staff were interested in us but not intrusive and the breakfast was consistently good especially the fresh soft fruit and coffee. A wonderful rest with great places to visit around.
What an amazing find. Everything about the Horse Guards is outstanding. Had a night stop last night. There are 2 rooms. The Blue Room and The Royal Room. Both have recently been refurbished to an incredibly high standard. Extremely comfortable beds, quality furniture modern bathrooms, warm and cozy on a foul winters night. I stayed in the Royal Room.
The Landlord and Landlady could not be more pleasant. Old school. Heart and some in the business which shines through it. None of the awful “managed chain” dross.
A lovely bar area with log burner and a good range of beers and wines. The menu in the restaurant was simple, but varied. Something for everyone, but not pages and pages of Eating House drivel. Freshly made, freshly cooked seasonal delights, prepared and cooked by a chef with passion and pride.
Breakfast was without fault. Fresh, plentiful and perfectly cooked.
I travel the length and breadth of the country and this was an absolute gem. Try it and like me, you will be planning your next visit. Absolutely outstanding in ever sense.
I pass through this area regularly and sometimes need a place to rest my weary head. I have not stayed here before but happily The Horse Guards turned out to be an excellent choice. Lovely welcome. Spotless airy room. Good breakfast. Terrible mattress (but I still slept well). So much better than using a Premier Inn type place.
We chose to stay at the Horse Guards as we were visiting Highgrove House for an evening garden tour and decided to make a mini break out of it. Arthur and Janette were very friendly hosts and knowledgeable about the area. We thoroughly enjoyed the choice of breakfast available and the Royal Room we stayed in was comfortable with lovely furniture and lots of space with a big bathroom. I’d definitely recommend staying here.
My husband booked one night here to celebrate a special birthday. We stayed in the Royal room and loved it. Clean, light and spacious with lovely views across the fields.The shower was fantastic with two shower heads and was clean and bright. We had asked the owners if we could book in a little earlier. No problem at all. We had dinner here and the food was really tasty. Not often I cannot finish a fish and chip supper but just could not quite manage it!!! We thought the breakfast was lovely, served by Sarah, who was so friendly. Best scrambled egg I have had and my husbands full english was really good. Sad we could only stay one night but we will definately come back for longer as we loved the relaxed and friendly hosts and beautiful room. Thankyou for a lovely Birthday stay.
