De Vere Warbrook House and Grange Hotel

Me and the boyfriend decided that a trip to Thorpe Park was needed. I wanted to make the most of it so was looking for a hotel near. I found a deal on Groupon for De Vere Warbrook House and Grange Hotel which included 1 night stay, a bottle of wine on arrival, 2 course meal and breakfast for under £100. Ideal considering we was just using this for 'Netflix and chill'.

Once arrived the receptionist was lovely and quickly signed us in. We was asked if we would like red or white wine. A first for us as usually we just get what we're given no questions asked. Although small I loved the look of the room! With the 3 big windows at the front the room was bright and cheerful with a view of the open land with trees and a stream. I liked how the bathroom was laid out. Down a mini hall as to say instead of the usual box room. 

Unfortunately the kitchen was under development during our stay (I was informed beforehand) so feel I can't really judge the hotels potential regarding food. We were given a set menu for our starter and desert and  a buffet for mains. My started was lovely (Greek salad) but felt that the main was a bit meh. Everything was ok but basic BBQ food such as burgers, corn on the cob and chicken wings. I was expecting a bit more class but then again they were down a kitchen. The boyfriend was not impressed at all and was still hungry by the time we left for bed but didn't fancy spending £20 on room service for a pizza.

Although pretty looking the rooms walls and windows are as thin as paper. I could hear everything clearly from outside. Luckily it wasn't to noisy outside as you are away from traffic. Our room was hot but the hotel supplied a massive fan in our room that rotated. Was a total life saver! The bed itself was comfy and I slept cosy throughout the night. Breakfast was a standard buffet. Just like our main course it was nothing special but it got the job done.

Overall I enjoyed my stay here but feel I can't fully judge De Vere Warbrook House and Grange Hotel as I didn't experience their food to their full standard. I would return here only if I found another Groupon deal.
