Stayed here 1 night on 14th July 2011 to celebrate my 6th Wedding Anniversary with my husband.
From the moment I walked through the door and asked where we could park and a valet was sent back out with me to park the car for us I knew this place was going to be good!
Staff - very friendly and helpful at all times, say what they are going to do, and do what they say. We were also able to check in an hour early which was a bonus.
We were given a complimentary afternoon tea in the Secret Garden (which is lovely and tranquil) and I'm more of a G&T person than afternoon tea, but it was truly divine, hot scones with clotted cream and home made jam, eclairs, fingers sandwiches of all varieties, and lots and lots of tea - definitely worth it.
The room was lovely, 4 poster bed, robes and slippers provided, a little fridge with water and milk, a little kettle and tea and coffee provided, soft fluffy towels and The White Company toiletries. I love everything about this place, the opulence and sheer decadence is tasteful and hubby definitely appreciated the B&O equipment!
I loved this place and the location, spent a lovely evening at The Riverside and am hoping to come back in October. The only slight niggle I had was I could only find one plug socket, so when I wanted to charge my phone, straighten my hair and put the fan on I couldn't - but hey what's frizzy hair for one day!
