On this return visit we were looking forward to see what the refurbishment had produced - we were not disappointed. A friendly and efficient welcome at reception and we were escorted to Rose Cottage by an enthusastic young lady clearly proud of the work that had been done. On the way were shown the lounges and the Garden Room and Potting Shed restaurants. Whilst we were delighted to see that the open fire was still burning in the lounge on the left (as you enter) we were impressed too by the red and blue lounges, both with distinctive and stylish decor. Rose Cottage has the advantage of a parking space right by its front door. This a very comfortable room - really a suite - with a separate sitting room. Bathroom with separate shower is very well equipped and the heated floor is really welcome. The new bed is most comfortable. The bedside reading lights are a real asset. We took up the offer to be shown some of the other new rooms and it was great to see the individual approach that has been taken in both layout and decor. Breakfast in the Garden Room was a treat with a glorious view down the new garden which will only get better as plants and trees develop. We had a lunch in the Potting Shed; food and service were excellent although the restaurant was clearly busy. Good selections of both food and wine. One of the really reassuring things about our visit was the staff - friendly, helpful and looking out for those little things that might have been missed. Without exception they are the credit to the Dormy House. We spotted some minor things, issues arising from the works, that needed attention. Staff were very receptive to our bringing these to their notice and recognised that only with people staying in the rooms will these issues be identified. My wife and I are fans of the Dormy House and are delighted to see that all looks well following the refurbishment and we are already looking forward to our next visit.
