Visited Down Hall last night as part of a Murder/Mystery night package. Firstly, the entertainment section of the evening was wonderful, with a professional company playing out a great murder/mystery. It was let down by the food & the accommodation. It was a set menu, which was not advised in advance with only vegetarians being offered an alternative. In addition, there was not enough staff and we waited quite a while for the food. But what was probably most disappointing is the tiredness of the magnificent rooms in this country house set in wonderful surroundings. It may have been said before on this forum, but a major overhaul of the accommodation & public areas is well overdue.
Swimming pool shut down & currently being converted into a Spa centre.
