It truly is quite astonishing how brilliant I am. I know of nobody else who has as much class, dignity, intelligence and grace as I do and let me tell you, I'm used to socialising with only the best in high class circles. I'm a fully formed woman of the home counties and demanded to be taken away for a mini break, and after a few days stropping and dropping major hints, my charming partner finally understood and booked us in to Chilworth Manor for two nights. I was disappointed to not have been met at the vehicle but when we got to reception, the service was spot on. I could see how taken aback the lady was by me and rightly so, but she handled me very well and checked us in swiftly. After fully checking the room, top to bottom to ensure there was no dirt (FYI, the room was spotless), we stomped our way down stairs to indulge in an afternoon tea in the bar. I managed to consume an entire scone in just three mouthfuls as it was so delicious and very tasty.
Part of the reason my charming partner booked us in Chilworth Manor is the use of the luxury spa facilities which I absolutely made the most of. I have an incredible figure for a woman of my age, I truly could be a supermodel even at my autumnal age so I couldn't wait to change in to my one piece and get myself into that pool. You should have seen the jealous looks I received when I emerged from the changing rooms and I walked around the entire pool to show myself of before elegantly jumping into the pool where I let out a feminine screech for the shock of the water made me jump but it felt so good. There were a couple of other swimmers in there doing lengths and I took it upon myself to race them both and it's safe to say I absolutely won. By a long way actually. Each time I'd lap them and gave them a look of a woman in the know as I whizzed toward them. There is also a wonderful jacuzzi in which my charming partner was kept amused by the bubbles and a hot sauna and steam room to enjoy and relax.
We had breakfast for both mornings of our stay and I must be honest and say the fried eggs were some of the best I've ever eaten. They tasted so fresh that I assume the eggs would have been recently laid, probably that very morning.
We have a breathtaking amount of money and can afford absolutely anything we want. Often we simply drop cash onto the floor and cannot even be bothered to pick it up, we have that much. But I must say, the only small negative of our experience was the unecessary high prices of the hotel restaurant. The food and service was very good but there is no need to charge £9 for a starter and £20 for a main course. We also had a £20 bottle of sauvignion which I managed to down within half an hour. As I stated, we have so much money so it's not really an issue but I witnessed some less well off folk struggle to pay these prices and it became embarrassing for us as we could have what we wanted and they could see that. I felt as though I was watching a real life version of one of those charity adverts you see on television and it made me uncomfortable and slightly put me off my food, although it was delicious.
My absolute favourite part of the hotel is the union flag, flying proudly above the hotel. I am a proud woman with a fresh tight perm and seeing this flag brought a tear to my eye.
I've been told that Chilworth Manor is only a 3 star hotel but let me tell you, it deserves to be a 4 star, completely, with some touches of a 5 star. Thank you, Best Western, for a fabulous mini break and I shall ensure I recommend you to my prolific pals of the home counties so expect some privileged guests in the near future.
