We are a young"ish" couple with a 1 year old baby who have just returned from a WONDERFUL unplanned weekend break at the Northfield Hotel. First impressions count, and this always begins with the hotel receptionist. The Receptionist who checked us in, was the most efficient, professional, helpful and friendly receptionist we have dealt with (and we have stayed at a lot of hotels). Nothing was too much trouble, and she immediately set the scene for a lovely stay ahead. Our room was spotlessly CLEAN. The room EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS, with a wonderful sea view, a very large bed, lots of room to move around and great facilities. The hotel swimming pool and jacuzzi was great fun, and our 1 year old daughter had a super time splashing around after being cooped up in the car for hours. We usually dine out when visiting a new town, but decided to eat in on this occasion, as the menu looked nice and we thought it would be easier with our baby. We were given a lovely table in the Sun Lounge, with fabulous sea views, and away from the main dining room, which was excellent - as It meant, we could enjoy our meal, without worrying that our baby was going to make a noise and disturb the other diners. This really was a god send for us...and made what can be a stressful experience, a very pleasant one! The presentation of the table was excellent, with lovely clean, pressed table cloths, polished cutlery and fresh flowers. The meal was excellent, with great choice of dishes, and nice portion sizes for all 4 courses!!! The staff were attentive, friendly and highly trained. We were so impressed with the hotel, that we decided to stay for another night!!!!! The hotel oozes charm, tradition and has a wonderful hint of nostalgia - which is so sadly lacking in most hotels today. If you have very high standards of cleanliness and an eye for tradition and detail, then this hotel is for you. A wonderful end to a fantastic family holiday to the South West of of England..... If we are ever back in the area, then we will definitely be back. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK NORTHFIELD - please dont change - you are doing everything right !!
