It was simply wonderful and a reminder of what it would have been like to live in the colonies at the turn of the century... and what a fine piece of Arts and Crafts architecture! Nothing has changed here other than they can now provide hot water! The staff simply fell over themselves to be helpful from the doorman in his green suit and the bell boys and barmen in white jackets with gold epaulets. The billiard room with stag heads on the walls, a log fire in the sitting room and the Club Newsletter in the reading room......it is very much the gentleman's club. Even though it is now very tired I wouldn't change a thing, it is all part of the charm. The formal 4 course dinner is a must just for the experience. A real gem!
