Really enjoyed our stay...such a treat...we loved everything about it...
...the outdoor hot tub...communal but we had it to ourselves
...the secret beer tap...free and you can have as much as you want if you find it
...our room...loved the Cipriani Palace Theme...all rooms themed on famous hotels from around the world, we liked this one as in the main house, actually one of the cheapest. Some of the more expensive ones are in separate buildings...you might prefer this but we enjoyed being in the main house.
...quirky decor...loved the monster at the top of the stairs...
...canopies in the lounge before dinner
...nice grounds for a stroll
...an amazing dinner at the Crab & Lobster restaurant next door...just amazing, one of our best ever...see separate review
...great breakfast...lots of interesting choices, kedgeree etc as well as Full Yorkshire...Tony had steak, eggs and hash browns
...informal feeling to it yet very special
...great service but very relaxed...we felt very comfortable and at home
...molton brown toiletries
Not cheap but really worth it for a real treat...we came for 1 night and it was such a lovely stay.
A few things would have made it even better but not making a big deal out of these...
...room too hot...we had the window open while at dinner and over night and still woke up in the middle of the night hot
...canapes were complimentary pre dinner in the lounge...a free drink per guest in addition would have been a nice touch
...TV in our room didn't work, didn't let them know as just wanted to relax and sure they would have sorted it but would have been good if it had worked in the first place
...Just a hand held shower over the bath...bath lovely but a proper shower would have been good too
