I had high expectations when booking The Marcliffe for out anniversary. It was fairly pricey and any reviews I'd come across highly recommended the hotel.
Our room was ideal. Great size, excellent furnishings and a comfortable king bed.
However, the experience truly started when we went for dinner. The service was impeccable from start to finish and the good was out of this world. If you are a meat eater, the quality of the product is absolutely fantastic. I had a burger for main course and it was without doubt, THE BEST burger I have ever had in my life. Accompanied by a quality red wine, it certainly made for one of my most memorable meals.
The portions for each course were generous to say the least which is something that is fairly uncommon in restaurants of that quality.
A memorable stay and it is a real shame to hear the hotel will cease to exist later this year. I feel privileged to have experienced it and I'm sure the chef (and all of the hotel staff) will not struggle to find jobs elsewhere.
