Made our anniversary weekend perfect, wonderful.
Posted Jul 25, 2016
If I was forced to find anything less than perfect about our weekend, I would struggle. The room was a little too hot for my liking - but I like a cool room. Even though we had no sunshine on Friday and Saturday and it rained all day Sunday, we literally never noticed due to the fantastic welcome, facilities, historical beauty of the hall and astounding scenery right up to the doorstep. Every single member of staff was professional to the core, friendly, personable, efficient and attentive. I dislike fawning service and scripted responses, these staff are themselves, highly trained, proud of their standards and every one of them able to make you feel really special, nothing was too much trouble.
The surroundings are exceedingly impressive, high class - from rooms to restaurant to lounge to cocktail bar to spa. Incidentally, the spa is a substantial cut above the rest, obviously a major investment here. We drank Prosecco served to us as we languished in the enormous outdoor hot tub with an infinity edge opening onto the woodland estate with rabbits playing on the grass just in front of us - I had to drag my wife away from this place at the end of our stay. Thank you everyone for a wonderful long weekend.
