Excellent food and a great choice. Efficient and polite service at dinner (although we were left to pour our own wine) but the waitresses at breakfast stood out as being particularly helpful and cheerful. Loved the champagne room and didn't find the chiller too noisy although I had to move the ticking clock. Canapés on arrival were included in the...

We stayed in the Movie & Heifer rooms which were well appointed and very comfortable with the added bonus of birthday balloons and chocolates. We had a nice relaxing lunch...

Yet another excellent stay at the heifer. Gorgeous food the seafood sharing platter is to die for and the steaks are full of flavour and cooked to perfection. We stayed in the chocolate heaven room again. It's such a luxurious room which is always very clean and really well decorated with lovely treats waiting for you. The staff are friendly...

Where to begin on this one? What a unique and unexpected pleasure from beginning to end. The hotel has parking on site, then on to a very warm and genuinely friendly welcome from the bar staff, waiting staff, housekeepers and even the owner who stopped by to chat. On arrival we decided it would be rude not to have a...
