There are only a few things I look for in a Hotel....comfort, good service and value for money. Without a doubt, De Vere Village meets all these expectations and far more.
My fiance and I visited here on Valentines night for an offer they were running and in the words of my better half, it was the perfect night. The service from start to finish was exceptional. We were welcomed by the front of house staff with professionalism and friendliness. They efficiently allocated our room and dealt with all the payment etc. with grace. En route to our room on the 4th floor, everything was in immaculate condition. Funky lift, clean carpets, well signed. We were lucky enough to stay in one of the Upper Deck rooms which are simply beautiful. Modern but comfortable. All the mod-cons you would need be you a business visitor or someone like us, just there to enjoy a night.
Once settled in, we went down to The Victory Chop house for our booked table at 7pm. We were greeted by the manager and seated promptly. The food was some of the greatest we have tasted even though it was part of a set menu for the night. Fresh, full of flavour and well presented. Ross, the Head Chef, and his team have done an outstanding job at making this in to a restaurant that stands out as its own entity within a hotel which is extremely hard to achieve.
From here, we moved across the reception area in to The Victory Ale House. Again, great service, clean surroundings, perfectly served drinks, comfort, pool tables, music at good volume.....it could go on. Are you getting I like this place?
What I love so much about this hotel is that you have everything you need under one roof. Excellent rooms, outstanding restaurant, great integrated pub, Starbucks and finally a brilliant leisure complex. We visited this in the morning for use of the pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. It seemed more feasible to use these facilities after the amount of wine from the night before! However, the gym looks incredible, when not hungover! Something a lot better for the hangover was the breakfast served in the Chop House. I'm always dubious of buffet style breakfasts but this one lived up to the expectations already set by the kitchen team. A wide range of continental food alongside some really good Full English options. I destroyed a couple of plates full!
The staff really did make this trip such an incredible experience. Thank-you to everyone at The Village, particularly to Danielle for all her help.
