Reasons for trip


I do love good tempting offers and trying out hotels in nice surroundings which I have not visited before. Stanton House is one such place. It is a beautiful stone Country Manor House overlooking Stanton Lake and Park, on the edge of the village of Stanton Fitzwarren, in the surrounding Wiltshire countryside.

We decided to make this a stop over on our way back from visiting family in the Midlands because it offered a great 'secret escape' offer on line. Accommodation was an Executive Double room with full English breakfast included and afternoon tea. The offer for £89 was from October to January 2015.

It was interesting to discover that the hotel had a strong Japanese influence, probably because it is part of the nearby Honda Group. Conferences and business meetings can accommodate from 5 to 110 day delegates.

It has 78 en-suite bedrooms, tea and coffee making facilities. There are a variety of types and styles of bedrooms. Seven of the bedrooms are located in the old Manor House which include four poster beds. The Executive Double rooms are larger, with a huge bed and a large, flat screen television with some satellite channels. They have a refrigerator, sofa, plenty of space and dressing gowns. (We did note you had to pay an extra tariff for the gowns and slippers if used). All the rooms are accessible by a lift. Free WIFI is also available. Our room was right at the end of a corridor and was great because it had a splendid view and was relatively quiet. It was wonderful to have so much space.

We enjoyed afternoon tea in the conservatory which was decorated out for Christmas and had nice views out onto the park area. The tea was really good and included a choice of sandwiches and garnishes; cake with scones, jam and cream and a pot of tea. Newspapers were available along with broadsheet grippers for easier handling.

In the evening we ate in the open plan Rosemary Restaurant & Bar. Here, British and Japanese food is available in varying choices. Breakfast was also eaten in here in the morning, well set out with many selections. What I did find interesting was a choice of rice/soup for breakfast – a traditional Japanese breakfast.

Stanton Park pride themselves in good customer service and the staff are friendly and helpful.

We had an enjoyable, comfortable stay with good quality food.
