The Dambusters Hotel
Only a three stars - but what a setting. The extensive grounds are lovely for walks and you can sometimes get a band playing in the gardens.
They nearly always have grand piano playing in the lounge area on Sundays, usually by stunning blonde. (my analysis not my wife's)
Unique Quality: The place was the officers mess for 617 Squadron during the second world war. That's the famous dambusters squadron that attacked the Rhur dams with Barnes -Wallis's 'bouncing bombs', which worked on the same principle as a stone skipping over water when thrown.
You can see the remains a prototype a bouncing bomb in the car park.
They also have what were Top Secret documents relating to the raid on display in the lobby area.
