Overall a great experience but not entirely perfect, considering the price. Staff were welcoming and the hotel is in a stunning location. When we made the booking we would have preferred a table at 1pm but we were told that 12 for 12.30 was the only time available. After a pre lunch drink, relaxing in the beautiful lounge, we were shown to our table at nearly 12.55. The canapés were ok, unremarkable really just cream cheese, breadsticks and olives. We ordered a bottle of wine which didn't arrive until we had to prompt our waiter as to its whereabouts which was a little disappointing. Also, the waitress only offered us one small bread roll- another would have been gratefully received!
The meal was excellent, our waiter very friendly- nothing to fault. Coffee in the lounge by the fire followed by a walk in the grounds surrounded by the beautiful scenery- a great afternoon. Do pay Holbeck Ghyll a visit, you won't be disappointed but as I said earlier, it wasn't perfect!
