“'Celebrated haunt' say the guides, an 'unreconstructed stately home, an ungainly pile' - and indeed the 60s political scandal still gets trotted out as a reason to visit. What's special about this hotel (mis-described by one guide as 'boutique') are the original Old Masters on the walls and the priceless antiques - it really does feel more of a country house than a hotel, and it's reflected in the rates. But this is real pampering, with a good spa and two pools (indoor and outdoor), boats for hire on the river, and drivers to drive you - or pilot you in helicopters - wherever you want.”
