Five of us booked a break from 27th to 30th September in order to enjoy Alvaston Hall and the Eagles tribute group ‘Talon’
We were aware through reading Trip Avisor reviews of the building work taking place and that the alternative arrangement for dining and entertainment was to be in a marquee, so we had some reservations when we set out.
Between us we occupied three standard rooms in the main house; the rooms provided everything anyone would need to be comfortable and as usual spotlessly clean.
We have stayed several times at Alvaston Hall and found the same level of standards and care that we have enjoyed previously, yes, the grounds were part building site but the work taking place was unobtrusive with a minimum of noise.
The marquee is quite large, light and airy, was well heated providing reasonable conditions all considered, although the food and service was good it would not be fair to compare it to a formal kitchen/restaurant situation.
As the stage and dance floor were a temporary arrangement again it would not be fair to compare it with a formal setting, the seating in the marquee is on level ground so at the rear you are at a disadvantage when entertainment is taking place, ‘Talon’, although very good were at a disadvantage to present their best.
All members of staff were as usual welcoming, caring and nothing was too much to ask of them, the renovation is costing we understand £13 million which should provide for a great destination.
Warners need to ensure the excellent standard that staff and the great entertainment team provides at present is maintained when the site is completed.
All in all we had a lovely weekend and have a Twixmas break booked between Christmas and New Year so we are looking forward to enjoying the new restaurant/entertainment building and meeting the wonderful staff again.
