We booked for hotel's White Tie and Tiara party for New Years Eve and it all happened last night. We had a great night. The hotel room (a Classic) was spacious, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was pleasant if a little dated but the bathtub was very long, I could nearly lay out flat in it and I'm 5'10, it was lovely and with lashings of hot water.
We had a room overlooking the fields and the road but the fields and the hills above gave a pleasant outlook (room 142) it was at the very end of the corridor so only neighbour on one side but it was quiet by the time we went to bed, but having said that it was New Years eve so it was well after 1 a.m. when we finally retired.
The party was great, lots of fun, and although we were a table for two we werent shoved in a corner as often happens at these sort of events, the tables for 2 were right at the front at the edge of the dance floor which was great for us. The DJ could have been better with the flow of his music but he did have us up there having a boogie many times.
The 5 course dinner was quite good but they may have been a little ambitious with some of the offerings, the goats cheese tart starter was a bit of a non starter I'm afraid but the rest was quite good.
Comfortable and quiet sleep and breakfast (which was fabulous) was being served til 12 noon which was very considerate. Would recommend this and we'll probably book for next year.
