My partner and I enjoyed afternoon tea today in a beautiful dining room with high ceilings, old wood beams and chandeliers. The tea consisted of a glass of pinot grigio charadonnay, a selection of sandwiches, fruit scone with butter/clotted cream/jam, a chocolate cake, a walnut slice, and tea or coffee .
The waitress was very efficient, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable when we asked about the hotel and house history.
The hotel was built as a house in 1903 and converted to a hotel in 1998. It is very attractive both inside and outside with neat grounds and room for a helicopter, which was parked on the lawn outside !
The toilets, both male/female were immaculate.
We intend to return for another afternoon tea in a few months as a treat for my partner's father and may book an overnight stay at a later date,
Would recommend afternoon tea to all.
