My husband and I decided on the morning of 10th May - my 50th birthday to go away on the spur of the moment. We chose the Macdonald Elmer due to the lovely photos and the good reviews. We were booked in by a lovely lady over the phone and when I told her it was my birthday she said 'oh they are really good there, you will probably have something nice laid on, I will make a note of it on your booking.'
When we checked in nothing was said, not even Happy Birthday so was a bit disappointed. There was certainly nothing nice laid on.
However, our stay was great, we had lunch in the steak house which was delicious, we had our evening meal and apart from one of the starters being the wrong order this was a lovely evening. Lovely waitresses and I have never been called m'lady in my life!!
The breakfast was delicious and loads of it and our room was clean and comfortable.
Would we go back.........I think we will.More
