This hotel is slick, stylish and indulgent. We spent Saturday the 17th June here on a last minute whim with 2 teenage children and one dog (yes, every hotels worst nightmare). The staff could not have been more accommodating.
We did not eat in the bistro due to the dog, but we asked for bistro menu to be served in the bar (be warned, the bar areas are very busy due to their popularity with the locals). Wine list, beer, cocktails, all of the highest quality. Steaks were awesome.
Breakfast was excellent - even chocolate cake on the buffet, which my daughter had as an appetiser prior to the best made waffle ever with warm nutella - she was in heaven. My husband and i had eggs benedict with the most fantastic bacon, son had smoked salmon, scrambled egg and black pudding (!) As non coffee and tea drinkers it was great to have a selection of chilled water and juices with PROPER size glasses.
Not cheap at all, but we all left the next morning with a smile on our faces and no regrets at the blow out - this place manages to give you a real taste of luxury with non of the pompousness of other hotels we have stayed at.
Would love to go to another in the chain with friends - maybe on one of the wine tasting deals (the wine tasting room looks amazing) - not sure if our kids and dog will let us go without them though!
