If fairness not the first time we've stayed here but for NYE 2012 we decided to take advantage of their New Years Package which included a room, a chilled bottle of champagne, entry to the private party, complimentry glass of champagne on arrival to the party and a late check out with breakfast/brunch served until 3pm!
On arrival we were met by the doorman who caleted parked our car and then were escorted to reception where we were we met by two stunning and very charming young laides who checked us in, welcomed us again (nice touch) and then told us we'd be given a free room upgrade.
The party, held in the Long Bar was well attended (but not so busy it was uncomfortable) and well organised. The staff, particularly the bar staff, were excellent and they seemed to be enjoying the evening as much as we were which only added to the experience (at one point the bar manager jumped up on the bar and started dancing much to the delight of the crowd). The hotel had Marina & The Diamonds doing a live set which was also well planned and executed (sound quality was superb).
The following morning (well it was more like midday after a 3am finish!) we went down for brunch and had the most delightful omlette before eventually checking out and heading hom.
A NYE to remember for all the right reasons
