Sadly this was the worst experience of our trip. This could be a perfect spot, it has a fabulous new spa, although the pool was already closed but seems to lack front of house management. The wonderful Halloween display was interspersed with pots of 'mums' that had been allowed to dry out and wilt in the heat of the log fire. Chairs in the breakfast room need spillages wiped down and there is nothing guaranteed to put you off food than to be faced with others leftovers piled up on trays, before being transferred to the kitchen. This is the only hotel in the world where I have had to ask housekeeping to stop vacuuming the bedroom corridors at 8am on a holiday weekend Sunday morning!
Worst was to come when we booked into the Red Rooster for our anniversary meal. Despite booking a day in advance and being residents we were shown to a table beside the kitchen and when we asked for a move the hostess happily agreed to get us a 'decent' table. We waited 30 minutes for another table - one away from the kitchen which we accepted as we were by now very hungry and waited a further 15 minutes before a waitress acknowledged our presence! Imagine our dismay when our salmon arrived raw in the middle!! We were told we would not be asked to pay but would rather have done so and enjoyed a memorable evening for the right, not wrong reasons!
Only positive is that the weather was stunning and we could enjoy strolling round the pretty town and visited Billings Farm and a hike round the Rockefeller National Park - very relaxing with beautiful scenery.
