We arrived at the hotel on a Friday evening at 8.00pm and the bar was buzzing with people - we later found out that it was Champagne happy hour! Natalie greeted us at reception and showed us to our rooms. She is possibly the most friendly and cheerful person I have ever met - unfailingly hapy to help - she really made the weekend for me.
The rooms are gorgeous. Huge beds, lovely decor and the decanter of port and gift pack of shortbread biscuits was the icing on the cake.
The breakfasts were amazing - we had full English, which included 2 eggs! The sausage was so delicious that we had to ask the chef where he'd bought it from.
We hired the private dining room for dinner on Saturday night and enjoyed just the right amount of attention from the serving staff, who had to contend with the fact that everyone had forgotten what they had pre-ordered. they were very patient with us.
All in all, lovely surroundings and very pleasant staff - what more could you ask for?
