I visited this hotel with my boyfriend in September 2012 - it was planned as a secret birthday weekend for me and he had spent a lot of time researching where we should go. Well he picked the perfect place! We stayed two nights and had the most fantastic time. Moreton-in-Marsh is a lovely setting with quaint shops and tea rooms to explore, as well as the pretty surrounding countryside. The hotel is top class from the lovely decoration to the warm welcome from the staff and the excellent level of service. Everything was clearly explained on check in and we were shown to our room which was clean, comfortable and cosy.
On arrival day we enjoyed drinks in the bar (delicious cocktails) before a four course dinner in the Mulberry restaurant, though the eight course tasting menu was also tempting! The food was all beautifully prepared and I would highly recommend it. I'm sure my boyfriend will have something to say about the cheese board which was very impressive. I went for the peanut parfait, banana panna cotta and pineapple sorbet, but even I enjoyed hearing the explanation of the different cheeses. The waiter certainly knew his stuff! The next evening we ate in the Brasserie for a slightly more casual option but that was also wonderful.
Everything about our stay was perfect but what really stood out was the staff and the level of service. I really enjoyed the turn-down service... coming back to your room after dinner to find the sheets pulled back for you, water and cookies by the bed, curtains closed, fresh towels, folded pyjamas etc. was lovely. One day we didn't leave our room until mid afternoon (oops!) but when we returned from our late lunch we had still received the full maid service in our room. It was all done very discreetly and nobody ever interrupted our weekend.
Every staff member was welcoming, smiley and knowledgeable from the tasty breakfast buffet (fresh honeycomb? Yes please!) right through to the end of the night. What a wonderful way to spend a romantic weekend! And yes, we bought the toy dog which was an optional purchase and was guarding the bed - a lovely memory of our stay. Highly recommended and I am extremely grateful that my boyfriend picked it!
