We just spent a wonderful winter weekend at Wheatleigh. It was like living in our own home but with a staff at our fingertips.
There is no reception desk or concierge desk in the main room, just staff always there, waiting graciously to be of assistance. The staff was waiting to greet us when we arrived Friday afternoon with a glass of champagne and an invitation to relax in the lounge. Our car was unloaded and parked, and our bags were taken swiftly to our deluxe room.
The decor throughout is contemporary and neutral and welcoming, not stuffy at all. Everything is spotless and very well run. Our lovely four course dinner Friday night was excellent; and it was the first time we ever had an amuse-bouche before dessert! The next morning, our room was made up while we were at breakfast - and again, an amuse-bouche while we awaited our eggs and hot chocolate the is indeed indulgent.
The park-like setting is beautiful, even in winter.
My only complaint is that I wish there were better lighting in the lounge so that I could read there after dark. Other than that, what a wonderful, relaxing way to spend a winter weekend!
