This hotel is outstanding. I could go on and on but I will summarise as to not bore you all.
Staff - a real asset. Attentive without hovering, charming, knowledgable etc
Room - gorgeous, massive and well furnished. It is clear a great deal of thought into the interior design has been made. The bedding, towels, coffee machine, etc are all high end. Only thing missing in my opinion was tissues, not nice having to blow nose on toilet paper.
Breakfast - brilliant. Absolutely fab choice, all very tasty and good quality.
Afternoon Tea - wonderful. Although quite a lot of food - the individual cakes and sandwiches were quite large. The choice and quality of cakes was outstanding.
Dinner - very good. Restaurant was busy but staff coped perfectly. Excellent cocktail menu and choice of food.
Overall a very good hotel already despite having only been open for a few months. I am very picky and expect the best when staying at 5* hotels and Fonab met my expectation. Very much lookign forward to returning when the spa and pool open.
I have stayed at the current Tripadvsior No1 UK hotel - Rudding Park and I loved it. Fonab is of the same standard so I expect to see awards from Tripadvisor and the many travel companies/associations/boards over the next year.
