Words simply cannot explain the experience of staying at Blantyre! Yes, I know it is expensive but it is so worth it. The house and the grounds are beautiful and there is just an atmosphere of quiet calm. This is a place to come to and relax - read on the covered porch, sit in one of the public rooms and have a drink before dinner and have your desert and coffee in the music room.
We stayed in the blue room which was just beautiful with a nice view of the back garden. The room was spotless. Everything is spotless here and in tip top shape. Unlike other "luxury" properties you don't any scuffed walls or things that need to be fixed.
This all being said what separates Blantyre from other properties is the level of friendly, professional, fully engaged service. It is very clear that each person enjoys working there and they not only want you to be happy but they are very committed to the vision of Blantyre. Each person is very professional but, at the same time, they are not stiff. While we were there the owner was very present and also fully engaged.
Breakfast is very generous. We had dinner both nights and the food was very good. The second night was my birthday and you would not believe how they set the table! They pay a lot of attention to the details: the note of welcoming, a tray left in your room with cookies and cheese, a departure bag with water and a snack.
I asked to see the corner room and not only were we shown that, we were shown two other rooms. All were beautiful and so unique.
The reason I asked to see the corner room was to make another reservation to come back next month to celebrate my husband's birthday! We can't wait to return!
