I organised my friend's hen here from the 1st and 2nd February. From the first phone call I made to the hotel, I knew that this was where we were going to spend the weekend. I dealt with Marzena who was an absolutely joy to deal with. She was so helpful and courteous at all times and was great when I had to ring to change the guest's requirements etc.
We arrived down on the Friday afternoon and had the most amazing afternoon tea! They had advertised it as light afternoon tea in the package and I was only expecting tea/coffee and maybe a few biscuits. But it was WAY more than that. We got lovely sambos, scones, and cake in the Pink Lounge and spent most of the night there drinking amazing cocktails!
The rooms are fantastic and so spacious! The beds are so comfy and the pressure in the shower is brilliant (very important for hair washing!). We didn't spend much time in the rooms but everyone was raving about how pretty and girly the hotel was.
Breakfast was just incredible! You know it's going to be a good breakfast when you are handed a menu and see pancakes on it! We didn't have to wait very long to be served and the staff once again were so polite and helpful. I can categorically say that it is worth getting up for even if you have a bit of a hangover!
We ate in Celler One Restaurant and it was...........yep you've guessed it, amazing! There were plenty of hens there but yet there was always staff around to serve us and look after our hungry bellies. The staff even arranged to serve us a cake that we had brought down with us which was really nice!
Location is brilliant. It is just a 5min walk from the train station and so central for the town centre. So much better than organising taxis etc.
All in all just a great weekend! I can definitely recommend this for a hen or girly weekend. I'm not too sure about couples however, their heads might be a bit wrecked from shrieking girls!
