My wife decided that we should have a family get together for her 70th birthday. We stayed at the Mayfield from Friday to Monday, the party consisting of us two senior citizens, our two daughters with partners and two grandchildren aged 6 and 8. We booked the bed, breakfast and evening meal package for 3 nights.
I would just like to say that the two highlights of the weekend were the fabulous meals and the wonderfully helpful staff. We were not sure how the two little ones would fit in but the staff were especially good with them and they had a wonderful time.
Shortly after returning home my wife received this email from our eldest daughter:
Richard and I also enjoyed ourselves. I think that it worked well going out separately in the day and spending the evenings together. It was good to be at a hotel as no one had to go off and cook. I think that we should do the same every year and share the costs. Richard enjoyed the food in the hotel, saying that it was the best part about it. I would have liked some fresh fruit salad for breakfast and a veggie cooked breakfast option. The room was a bit basic, although very clean, which is the main thing, but we had to have a lukewarm shower as unless you got back about 5pm there wasn't any hot water. For me the best point was the staff who were so friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. They were very accommodating about the table decorations when I rang to ask. I felt that they were also accommodating in terms of the children's food."
Altogether a well worthwhile weekend for 3 generations. less
