The hotel itself is beautiful and the food is superb. What made it so enjoyable for us, however, was the wonderful staff - everyone could not do enough to make our stay perfect. We visited over New Year and enjoyed all the entertainments on offer but it was the attention to detail in the warmth of the staff's welcome that we will particularly remember. We travelled with elderly father-in-law in tow and were impressed to see an extra heater in his bedroom - nothing had been forgotten.
Our booking was made quite late on and there were only a couple of bedrooms left, No. 3 on the first landing was allocated to father-in-law and, although small, was perfectly fitted out and above all, cosy! We were in room 19, which we had been warned in advance was small, so no surprises there, but it was perfectly fine and the bed was super-comfy.
Many thanks to all at Merewood for making our stay such a delight. We fully intend to be back - just wish we didn't live at the other end of the country!
