love love love this hotel! we have stayed several times now and this time we returned for our 10th wedding anniversary. It felt like coming home. we were welcomed like old friends and all the staff without exception managed to make us feel special throughout the entire weekend. we had our anniversary dinner in the library restaurant and although we have eaten there several times before we were still amazed at how fabulous the meal was. the roast halibut in clam sauce is especially recommended but it was all delicious. the staff seem to be a close knit and friendly team who come across as being proud and happy to work for the red carnation group, this comes across to the clients and contributes a huge amount to the quality of the experience. Our weekend could not have been more special and we can't wait to return.
