We arrived for our 30th wedding anniversary break on the bank holiday Monday to be greeted by a personal host. We were quickly ushered through the sign in formalities and taken immediately to our room. We had chosen one of the historic rooms and was allocated the Bronte suite which was fabulous with views over the terrace and valley to the rear of the hall. We were given champagne/strawberries/chocolates in the room which was absolutely immaculate. All the facilities, bathroom and mini bar were fully stocked.
The hotel itself was obviously and old country house with beautiful old rooms which are well furnished with plenty of comfortable furniture and retain many interesting and original features. If you want sleek lines and plastic then go elsewhere!!
The dining facilities are of two types with the Rawson resturant being the primary dining area. The table cloths, cutlery etc are spotless and we witnessed the staff continually cleaning the area as well as serving. The meals are a mixture of table service and buffet style depending on what you chose. The food quality/choice was excellent and considering the number of guests present all credit to the chef. Admittedly in some areas the tables were a little cramped but in general this is not the case.
The Terrace restaurant offers superb dining at a small supplement ( you must try the Terrace dessert) with silver service and full table service.
The bars, tea rooms and shop provided good food, drinks and gifts at reasonable prices and again with excellent service.
The staff in all departments were a mixture of British and European origin and were excellent. Nothing was too much bother for them and they carried out their duties very proffessionally. Some of the older guests may like to relearn some manners from these younger people!!
While we were staying there the age ranged from late forties to eighties but in no way did this detract from our stay.
The hotel boasts a lovely pool, jaccuzzi, sauna and steam room with excellent shower facilities. There are also beauty treatments at a competitive cost.
Finally the entertainment / activities were brilliant with vignettes, plays and a murder mystery. During the day you could learn circus skills, archery, rifle shooting and card making to name a few. In the evening there were a variety of acts, competitions etc to satisfy most people.
I have read the previous reviews on this site and I am sorry for those few people that have had a bad experience there but there will always be whingers!!
