We booked New Hall a week before our visit after much deliberation, for a quiet romantic, relaxing night away from the day to day toils of working family life.
We booked for Dinner, Bed and Breakfast also upgrading to an executive room and the al a carte food. We also requested a room in the old part of the hotel and not the new. (Why book an 800 year old hotel to stay and have a room in the new part)
We arrived around 14:55 in the afternoon, with the sun at full strength. We were greeted by a lovely gentleman and the receptionist booked us in and welcomed us to the hotel. We were then taken to our room (which we would never have found so a big thanks you to the hotel) our room did not disappoint, with a small hallway with a door to the bathroom and door to the bedroom/lounge area. The bathroom had a large window overlooking the side gardens, croquet lawn etc and the room window overlooking the front. The room was stocked with biscuits (very nice biscuits) hot chocolate, fresh and instant coffee, herbal teas etc. We quickly unpacked and made our way around the hotel and for a lovely walk in the gardens; we took in the wonderful surroundings basking in the sun and sat for a while by the tennis courts, just taking in the quiet.
We then paid a quick visit to the Spa, which is contained in a separate building by the two ponds and truly wonderful setting, we then decided to wonder back up to the hotel across the bridge and sat on the terrace consuming a couple of drinks for the remainder of the afternoon. This I wish could have gone on for longer. We then made our way back to the room, via an alternate route again admiring the splendour that this building is.
We made our way down to the restaurant (The Bridge restaurant) which we couldn’t find, so we made our way to the reception area, where the lovely gentleman from earlier kindly took us.
We sat by the fire and the menus along with the wine list were given, our champagne and canapés were brought for us to consume at our leisure. We then made our way to our table. The evening was excellent a wonderful setting, the staff attentive but not overly they knew exactly when to come forward. The food arrive which really was out of this world. We left the restaurant about 22:15 where did the time go? We then enjoyed a vodka in the relaxing lounge and worked off some our dinner by taking a late evening stroll around the grounds (the lite area only)
Only arrival back to our room, our bed had been turned down, stocks replenished including the tasty biscuits.
Breakfast again was in The Bridge restaurant and again this did not fail to please. We then went back to the room to pack and unfortunately check out.
I must apologise my title may be a little misleading, unfortunately we were disappointed. Disappointed that our stay was only for 24 hours.
Many thanks to the hotel and staff for a very pleasant if short break.
