As we are getting married here in November, we travelled to Mount Juliet for our wedding menu tasting in the Lady Helen restaurant, so I will start the review with the food. All of the dishes we tasted were out of this world, and the wines we tasted were equally delicious. Making a decision for our wedding menu was extremely difficult as everything we tasted so amazing! I highly recommend the Lady Helen for anyone staying here, and to echo other reviewers it is definitely worthy of a Michelin star. Breakfast the following morning was 5 star standard, with a great selection in both the buffet and cooked to order menu (I had amazing pancakes with maple syrup, bacon and fresh berries).
The room we stayed in was spacious and elegantly furnished, with the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Little details in the room like still and sparkling water, an array of organic tea/coffee/hot chocolate with a designer-style kettle, and homemade toiletries in the bathroom add to the 5 star feel of this hotel.
For leisure we used the pool, which was nice and quiet as there are allocated times for families. My one and only criticism during our stay would be the absence of shower gel and shampoo in the shower/changing area in the leisure centre, which surprised me as all of the other public bathroom areas in the hotel had luxury soaps and lotions etc.
After breakfast on our day of departure we went for a cycle around the estate, as the hotel has bikes for guests to use during their stay. It was really beautiful to explore the grounds and to cycle through the stud farm and the river.
Even though we only stayed for one night, we were so relaxed afterwards that it felt like a week! I cannot recommend Mount Juliet enough, it is perfect, and I can't wait to go back in November for our big day!
