Dear Lainston Staff,
My Girlfriend and I travelled to this hotel for a romantic treat after i recently returned from Afghanistan, we were imediatley impressed with the garden, house and heli-pad!
The reception was warm efficient and friendly, no too much fuss which I liked. We were showed to our room given a quick tour and were left speechless, we were very surprised by the size, space within the suite, quite beautiful, elegantly furnished and modern with a hint of old world charm, we loved it especially the bathroom :-)
During the afternoon we had a walk of the immaculate grounds, visited the pigs, herb garden and sundial terrace. On a sunny March day it was a perfect way to work up an appetite, enjoy each others company and get some exercise.
During the evening we dined in the restaurant and were once again impressed with the service, friendliness of staff and decor. The food was prepare to the highest standard and tasted out of this world. Many thanks to chefs and restaurant staff for a fantastic meal.
After dinner we retired to the bar and sampled a simply amazing martini, so good I had several. Once again the staff were impeccable, charming and generous.......
I must thank all the staff for making out stay so memorable. We left the following day with smiles beamig all over our faces.
