"Nothing was too much trouble, we had 2 big dogs with us and staff made them as welcome as us. The bar and waiting staff, were knowledgeable, the young guy behind the bar whose name I missed, knows his wine and whisky. They all seemed to enjoy their roles, service style and demeanour came naturally, quality food, surroundings but relaxed not formal and stuffy. The 2 Spa therapists were lovely and massage was fab. We loved the staff uniforms, and the chef did us proud too. Faultless so we stayed another night, thank you all from us and the dogs."
