Just fabulous from start to finish. Someone was there to meet the car on arrival as I pulled in, take the bags and park the car - seamless. Beautiful big room overlooking lake and deer park and bathroom – even though it was one of the lower priced ones. Spotlessly clean – lots of little extra touches including a good radio and lovely cosmetics. Even a decanter of complimentary gin and whisky with mixers as well as the usual drinks tray. Very comfy bed with assortment of pillows, good turndown service with lip salve left on pillow and drinks supplies refreshed, glasses washed etc – other hotels take note!!
We brought two dogs and beds, bowls and bed throws were provided – none of the usual dog hysteria found in some hotels who look at then as if one had just brought in a slavering wolf. They even put out two bones for them! How a proper country house hotel should be.
Food – I was on a Rosemary Shrager course at the Cookery School (again excellent – a really great experience, highly recommended) so only had breakfast in the hotel. But this was delicious and cooked to order.
Lovely grounds and walks from the hotel – even a lake for the dogs to swim in.
All the staff were super-efficient but friendly with it and seemed genuinely happy to be working there. Obviously well trained, there must be an excellent hotel manager. Can’t recommend highly enough. We will be back.
