Following a wonderful celebration at the Woodlands for my 60th in June (see my earlier review ), I enquired about using it as a working residential for the voluntary organisation I am involved with. As we are a non-funded organisation, we have to do things 'on the cheap',so I really expected the Woodlands to be way out of our league - however, as we agreed to hold it mid-week, Lauren came up with a fantastic deal. There were 6 of us - we all had great rooms (2 which were changed without any problem at all) - 2 of us even had rooms with a terrace which was great as the weather was lovely whilst we were there. As we are a voluntary group Lauren gave us the use of a conference room (which turned out to be the Penthouse -perfect for a small group) for free & gave us a very generous DB&B rate.
The food was lovely,the rooms great, but the best thing was the staff - everybody smiles,can't do enough for you & seems happy in their work (a rare thing in my experience). I can't thank Lauren enough & we will definitely use the hotel again in the future, we have held these working residentials in several local hotels, but nobody has ever recognised our charitable status before - charging us the same as a wealthy company. Not only was the Woodlands the most reasonable, it was undoubtedly the best. Thank you.
