We attended a wedding here and, apart form the weather, I am sure the day was everything my nephew and his new wife hoped it would be, the hotel interior is beautiful and the gardens looked lovely.
The staff we attentive and pleasant although booking our room was a nightmare as, apparently you have to be on some guest list submitted by the bride to be allowed to book, we were but the staff said they could not find us on it.
The food at the reception was excelent and much more than you could eat with rapid service making sure food was seved nice and hot and no one had to wait for others to be served on the table.
Breakfast was o.k. althgough as another guest has said the continental option was a bit lacking, no natural yogourt, pain au chocolat, crossants or danish pastries and the bread roll selection was a bit wanting
Deep frying the potato bread and toasting the soda farl is also probably not a good idea but what would an English woman know?
Now for the truely wierd bit, we asked for a downstairs room as there is no lift and ended up with a disabled room which was very sparcly furnished with a wet room instead of a normal bathroom.
The bathroom was huge but there was very little in it .Toilet, shower and a wash basin hardly attached to the wall, (which had no hot water all the time we were there), and no bidet but it did contain a coffee table, in a bathroom!
Now I have stayed all over Europe from guest houses to the Dorchester by way of the Cairo Hilton and never have I been asked to sign a paper to say I have no food or drink with me and accept that the hotel will charge me the hotel rate for anything they find.
I also had to sign to say that we would be responsible any pay for any damage to the room, as we are over sixty and my husband is disabled I am afraid that swinging from the light fittings is no longer an option although I suppose it explains the lack of fittings in the room.
Again I say wierd
