Taking advantage of the 50% off sale we booked the Royale Suite. On arrival we were suitably impressed. it had four room areas in an open plan style and is the room pictured in the brochure and on the website under Royale. It was spotlessly clean and with beautiful antique furniture. a fantastic modern bathroom with large shower and amazingly deep stand alone bath. A four poster king sized bed with firm mattress in the bedroom area with the ability to turn off the main lights from the bed. Fab view from the lounge area with a wall of windows and the dressing/writing/telescope area was spacious. Plenty of space to put everything away.
32" t.v in the lounge and another in the bedroom to my husbands delight. Our chambermaid Bridgit was lovely and tailored the coffee, sugar etc to our personal needs which made us feel individual and not one of the herd.
Breakfast was great with many options inc smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, fry up, yoghurt, muesli, fresh fruit, porridge, etc.
Dinner absolutely fantastic with good choices every night. It is better to have the "brought to table option" as the carvery is cooked to appeal to the majority (not good if you like your beef rare for instance) The chefs do a fantastic job and the braised ham hocks were divine. Our waitress Madelaine was always smiling and nothing was too much trouble.
In the bar Alicia and Buster were the same with cheery chat and a lovely smile. People have whinged about the bar prices on site but a pint of lager was actually 10p cheaper than in Milton Keynes so I guess it is all relative. Royale rooms come with designated parking and roomier tables in the restuarant with a sea view. Room 402 has now spoilt us for the other rooms as it is huge and luxurious so we will be returning.
