We enjoyed a 3 night stay at The Mount Hotel in May. The receptionist Emily had a lovely smile and was very welcoming after our long journey. Emily showed us to our room, Durstan which has a beautiful view of the gardens and croquet lawn. The bathroom was newly refurbished with a walk in twin shower and also a large bathtub with a view of the garden. The hotel provided tea making facilities, bottled water, fresh fruit and homemade biscuits in our room each day. We found all the staff to be exceptionally helpful even though the hotel was busy with wedding and private parties to cater for throughout the Bank holiday weekend. We ate dinner in the restaurant on our first night. Service in the lounge for aperitifs was good. Having eaten in Michelin starred restaurants we thought our meal at The Mount was fabulous. The flavours were fresh and clean. The after dinner petit fours are a must! On Sunday our family joined us for drinks on the hotel terrace before enjoying the hotel's Sunday lunch. We were given a lovely table near a window overlooking the garden, which we really appreciated. A jazz duo was playing during the meal which we all enjoyed. All 6 of us thought the 3 course lunch was exceptional. Overall, this hotel was a really lovely place to stay.
