Shibden Mill made our Valentines celebration one to remember for all the right reasons. First the greeting on reception was warm and personal, then came the moment of truth - the room. We knew they had been refurbishing the accommodation and I had booked one of the best for this special day but I was not prepared for how great this one was; they had converted a barn so the ceiling was high with a fabulous centre arch but it was the furnishings and decor that made. A super bath that my lady could not resist, a bed big enough for three (with rose petals scattered on the pillows), a TV and DVD player, a lovely comfy sofa and a fabulous bathroom. All finished off with flowers and chocolates what more could we ask for - nothing we just enjoyed it until dinner time.
The dinner was a set Valentines menu (they can be not so good) but this one was excellent at every course; served with charm and responsiveness for only £45 per head for all three courses and a free glass of proseco, the wine list is good and also not expensive; all served in the excellent surroundings of the upstairs restaurant (direct access from the hotel so no need to go into the bar) which I think has also been refurbished but again it's the decor that makes it.
A good English breakfast this morning made it the best Valentines day we have had for a long time even though the weather was appalling we left uplifted and happy after a memorable time. At every juncture you got the feeling that nothing was too much trouble; especially as my lady took a fancy the 'library' look wallpaper in the corridor and they have promised to e-mail us the supplier.
Thank you Shibden Mill for a fabulous Valentines celebration - we cannot recommend it enough.
