What a fabulous and unique place to stay!
We have just spent three days in this delightful hotel, staying in the Provence Suite. The service and attention to detail was top notch.
We were greeted by Bethany, the owner, who was dressed in period clothes, as were all the staff. They all made us feel very welcome and more like honoured guests than customers. All staff took time to greet us and Check if we needed anything throughout our stay. Particular mention must be made of Jonathan, our designated butler, who happily tended to all our needs throughout the day and evenings.
The decor is just fantastic, with many period furnishings and accessories, especially many vintage and retro hats, which guests are encouraged to take advantage of at mealtimes.
It is also (primarily?) a very popular restaurant and there is a great atmosphere around the various busy dining rooms and the bar, but a table was always made available for us immediately we put in an appearance. We particularly enjoyed the 'small', sharing plates that were an option on the menu, and the sunset toast when all diners were invited outside into the gardens with a glass of sparkling wine.
Did I mention the steam shower? Bliss.
Being based in Britain, it is somewhat out of our normal range, but we would just love to go back, especially for one of their speciality evenings which I am sure would be beautifully organised.
If you get the chance to stay here, do so. We were delighted with our stay.
