This has been our 8th visit to this fantastic hotel, it is still as fantastic as the first time we came. Sam and Huw always greet us with such warmth it is like meeting up with old friends(after 8 visits I think we are). We are always greeted by the rest of the staff in the same manner. We stayed in Westgate this time which is just as beautiful as the rest of the rooms, we have only got 4 more rooms to try, it would be hard to choose a favouriate because they are all so stylish, quiet and comfortable rooms, with great en-suites to match. The food is superb. Starting with afternoon tea with cakes to die for, but you have to make sure you leave room for the 4 course evening meal. Starting with pre-dinner drinks where you choose from the fantastic menu and Sam is always on hand to give advice regarding the most appropriate wine to go with your meal choice and to end with coffee in the orangery or one of the lounges, where you can chat to other guests about what you have been doing during the day and what adventures you might be doing on the next day.
Once you have stayed here you will totally understand why Huw and Sam have achieved so many awards, with lots more to come I am sure.
We will certainly be back have to try the rest of the rooms and if I can't make up my mind which is my favourite room I will have to start all over again.
I will never tire of coming to this beautiful hotel. Looking forward to seeing you all again very soon.
