Well, this lovely holiday retreat was recommended by a colleague. When we booked there was only Laura's Loft left (there's a tongue twister :-) ) so we booked it.
The booking process was so easy and seamless.
On arrival for our week's holiday we were met with a friendly Rob and he gave us an excellent introduction on where things were. It was so well presented we remembered just about everything. Let me make it clear, it wasn't "do this and don't do that", but genuine information and really helpful.
Also, Rob gave us a choice of a nice bottle of wine. :-)
There is a an area in the complex for lots of information, DVDs (to borrow), books and chill on comfy out to watch a different TV if required.
Rob took us into Laura's Loft which is beautifully decorated. Now, I'm 6'3" and a big guy, but I can assure you, although Laura's Loft is quite bijou, everything you would want is there. A lovely living area with large LCD TV, DVD player, nicely fitted kitchen with wonderful oven, hob and dishwasher. Perfect for two people and as a big guy, I had no issues at all.
The bedroom has all the facilities you would want and the bathroom although again bijou has a lovely whirlpool bath. In fact after a couple of long walks it was welcome to calm the muscles back down.
I stay in hotels for many nights in the year due to my business. I feel that many hotels could learn a lot about quality and service from Greetham Retreat as it was like staying in a good hotel suite.
There are plenty of areas outside by the small lake to sit and relax and read with a glass of wine. Although really I think most people will use it as a base to go and visit other areas in Lincolnshire.
What we really like is this was a chance to really switch off, The proprietors allow you to get on with your holiday and if you need anything, they would be there.
Well, I am sure there are many other positive things I could add, but I will give others a chance.
We loved it so much we booked for next year.
