We stayed for 2 nights for my wife`s birthday she had no idea where we were going I kept it a secret as she had taken me to this hotel 18 months ago for my 40th and we had such a good time I just had to return and i was so glad I did.
I booked the Orchid suite which was just perfect my wife was well pleased, I had also asked if the hotel could arrange for a lemon drizzle cake to be made by they chef and placed in our room for our arrival , and they did just that and it was perfectly presented and tasted great (compliments to your chef) they also gave us a complimentary drinks voucher and a birthday card which was a nice touch thank you !
We also had an evening meal in Blakes restaurant, which was very good the maitre d` in charge was very helpful and his advice on what to order was spot on .
Breakfast was excellent both mornings it was nice to see the same friendly face of the gentlemen from 18 months ago serving the hot buffet .
We did use the spa area but only gave a 4 on our room comps card and on here because the jacuzzi was not working and I like to laze in there while my wife swims as I swim like a brick !
Finally just a big thank you to all your staff who helped make our stay so great everyone of them couldn`t do more to help we will most definitely be back again !
