Now I prefer to be at home for Christmas but for years her indoors has wanted to go away and this year I gave in.
I sold my kidney and booked 4 nights, arriving on the 23rd Dec and Wow, from the moment we arrived to getting in the car to come home it was a fantastic experience. The service was better than I have experienced anywhere and despite the kidney joke I have been lucky enough to stay in some top hotels around the world. I never did see any chambermaids or their trolleys, the room was always made up while we had breakfast no matter what time that was. As for the food and wine well it was superb in every way. I think the hotel was full but it had the atmosphere of a house party, there was no strangers here, just a bunch of friends that you had not met before. The owners were right there with you and could not have been more helpful.
On leaving in the car to go home a staff member ran to the car with an item we had left in the room, they had obviously quickly checked our room while we were checking out to make sure we had not left anything. This is just one example of the level of service the great staff provide.
Was I impressed? You bet. It won't be last time I stay here that's for sure!!!!
I could go on but I can see I'm getting carried away.
I will leave you with a couple of nice touches, the Hotel gave us two wrapped presents that was placed on our bed and on the Christmas eve walk around the lake at the half way point the staff that were leading the walk broke out with enough hot mulled wine, mince pies and cake to start a party. That's it from me, Happy New Year to all the staff and thanks for giving us a fantastic Christmas.
