For us this trip was a celebration event and it more than met our expectations - it surpassed them. All of the staff provided excellent, personalised, attentive and friendly service from the moment we stepped through the door to the moment we left. We were welcomed by all and encouraged to get the most out of the experience.
Like some other reviewers, I won't spoil things by listing menus and treats but needless to say it was the small things that went hand in hand with the bigger things to make the complete package. We loved the style of the menu presentation, the cutlery, the serving dishes, the coffee pots, the bread 'baskets', the gardens, the veg plot, the rooms etc etc
In terms of the food - despite there being the odd thing on the menu that we might not eat at home or be quite to our taste we came with an open mind and a desire to try everything - we weren't disappointed - we loved every single dish; we enjoyed being told what they were and also trying to work out the minor ingredients in addition to the major players; we loved the anticipation of what was coming next;we even loved watching diners who were eating later than us receive the dishes we had already tried and enjoyed! We haven't eaten at a Michelin starred restaurant before so having nothing to compare to but for us this reached a dining experience peak. Breakfast the next day was made with care and attention and full of lovely treats.
We stayed in a suite and could not fault it for comfort and again welcomed all the small lovely touches (Jacuzzi bath, Molton brown toiletries). I wish we had arrived earlier to take advantage of the time we had there. Beautiful rooms.
I appreciate that the cost is quite high but in life you get what you pay for and there are times when you should applaud your own decision to invest in something special.
