I decided to take my mother to a luxury retreat for the weekend as a 'Mothers Day' gift and we both had a fantastic time with Gloria as our hostess who gave us a tour of Cotter House as well as a historical account of how the house became what it is today and the amazing in-house art collection which is just stunning! Gloria made us feel right at home and as we sat by the open fire place she served us a fabolous high tea using the traditional silver ware followed by champagne and canapes which were simply divine!
We stayed in the Blue Provencale room which was lovely and we both woke up well rested especially my mother who said it was the best nights sleep she had experienced in ages! We then went downstairs to our dining room where we were served breakfast which was all handmade by Gloria! We had fresh fruit from her garden and museli as well as croissants and then french toast followed by eggs done in a mexican style all of which was absolutley delicious!
I would higly recommend this property to anyone wanting to get away and have a break or to those of you who want to be in the heart of the city but still have some privacy this in the ideal venue.
