My boyfriend surprised me with a weekend away to propose and our stay at Marmadukes made the occasion even more special.
We were warmly greeted and shown to the Loft Suite which is even more lovely than the pictures suggest - I had no idea this is where we were staying and was blown away. The decor is lovely and you have all you need in the way of tvs, dvd, wireless internet and even a playstation.
The bedroom has a small dressing room which is such a nice touch (and means you needn't have suitcases/clothes lying around the place) but the bathroom really is this suite's crowning glory! It is absolutely HUGE with a lovely big shower (with two shower heads!), a lovely big bath and even a sauna which is an unusual but wonderful addition.
As we were celebrating, the staff did all they could to make our stay even more special - we even had a dining table set up in the living area of the suite so that we could enjoy some privacy together which was such a treat. The waiting staff brought each course up and were so friendly, even though it's a fair hike up many stairs to get there, nothing was too much trouble.
The hotel itself is so tastefully decorated and has real charm - although modern, it's certainly not a characterless box, nor is it filled with chintz; the owners have achieved a perfect, classy balance. We couldn't fault the food either - everything we ordered was delicious. There is also plenty to choose from for breakfast so you needn't leave with an empty stomach.
All in all, the hotel was wonderful and an added thanks to the staff who were so accomodating that they really enhanced an already fabulous trip!
