My fiancé and I booked into the Kenwick Park Hotel for a one night stay as it was local to where we needed to be the next day and as it seemed lovely from the photos etc at a very affordable price. We were delighted with the hotel when we arrived - beautiful surroundings, lovely building and decor, plenty of parking and helpful staff who couldn’t do enough to make our stay comfortable (thank you!). We had booked through booking.com, but somehow our request to bring our dog got lost along the way. However, the reception staff (I think the lady looking after us was Alex) were great and immediately solved the problem, finding us a ground floor room that we could all stay in. On checking in Alex also asked if we would like to book a table for dinner to avoid disappointment - we weren’t sure of plans at the time but did book a table a little later on, which was simple to do. We also learnt that we could use the swimming pool and spa for the duration of our stay.
Due to our plans the following day, we explained that we would not be having breakfast at the hotel as we had to leave at 6:30am. However, Alex informed us this was not a problem and took our breakfast order so that we could have it to take with us!
Our room was beautifully decorated and very spacious, with plenty of tea/coffee/hot chocolate facilities and with a definite feel of luxury. We took the dog for a walk around the lovely grounds and then had dinner in the restaurant. The food and service were exceptional, and we went for the set menu - we thought the listed price must be per person due to the quality of the food and the fact that wine was included, but it turned out to be the price per couple so that was a very pleasant surprise.
After a very comfortable night’s sleep, we were greeted by the morning staff who were extremely helpful, saying to help ourselves to the continental breakfast. Phyllis the breakfast supervisor was lovely, bringing out our sausages sandwiches in takeaway boxes (thank you to the chef who cooked them specially for us before breakfast had officially started!) and even made us cups of tea, with an extra cup of milk in case they were too strong.
All in all it was a fantastic stay and we were only sad that we weren’t staying longer - we will definitely be back for another visit! less
