What a superb Christmas!
My wife and I stayed here from the afternoon of Christmas Eve, until after breakfast on Boxing Day, and found the whole experience an absolute pleasure.
From the delicious afternoon tea on the afternoon of arrival, to leaving on Boxing Day, the whole experience was a delight, the food throughout our stay was superb, and beautifully presented. (Previous reviewers please note my sirloin on Christmas Eve was cooked (rare) to perfection and was delicious!).
The staff at the hotel were incredibly polite, friendly and informative, even when faced with people somewhat lacking in manners!
The hotel, as it say's on the website, is "quirky" in so much as many of the public rooms are small (cozy), but this does not detract from the charm of the stay, but merely adds to it.
Our room, number 19 "Virtuous" was spacious, warm, and could not be criticized in any way.
We found the whole stay a delight, and it made our Christmas (our first away from children and grandchildren), an absolute pleasure.
Congratulations and thanks to all the staff for making our stay such a memorable visit, and I would have no hesitation in recommending the William Cecil to friends, and am hopeful of visiting again in the future.
If one was to be super critical then the only slight issue would be that the bar was converted to an extension of the restaurant for Christmas lunch, restricting the opportunity to sit and have a pre lunch drink in a relaxed area, but the residents lounge was available just down the corridor.
Overall - fabulous!
