We attended a wedding at the Whistledown recently and as a wedding venue it certainly ticks all the boxes. The bar is small and intimate yet big enough for all guests to gather. The function room was very good - lovely decor and all tables presented beautifully.
The food was very good - just far too much! The service was very professional and unobtrusive.
My main problem with our stay was our bedroom. It was located up in the attic of the property and it had not been refurbished. The bed - a zip and link bed - was very comfortable. (Don't understand why people have such a problem with these types of bed - they are six foot wide!) However the furniture was very basic, cheap and very old pine furniture. The TV was a small 15 inch portable which was set very low. The bathroom sink was blocked which was pretty inconvenient and as three of the four spot lights in the bathroom were not working touching up the make up was not easy. We paid £110 - just under the standard rack rate - same as other guests who were staying in far superior bedrooms.
Breakfast was very good and any interaction with staff was pleasant. The weather on the morning of departure was sunny and the view from the front of the property was stunning. All in all a good hotel for a short break away but make sure you ask for one of the refurbished room if you aren't getting a good discount.
