The wife and I stayed overnight at Makeney Hall, for a work related celebration.
On arrival the check-in was efficient and cheerful. The room was a bit tired but then it is an old grand house. The room its self was large, clean and comfortable, but no views from its two windows. The bed would have looked better presented with a valance, but it was comfortable and we had a good night’s sleep. The public areas were clean with period décor in good condition.
The function its self, was well organised and the staff efficient and helpful. The period décor made this a nice place for a function, with a nice conservatory, for pre-dinner drinks, and a good sized function room.
In the morning, we had a nice buffet breakfast, in the conservatory. This had good views of the gardens and the village of Holbrook.
The check-out receptionist was helpful and efficient.
