I wanted to surprise my husband as a thankyou,i had booked tickets for the Theatre Royals 50th anniversary production, and wanted to stay over for the night so we could enjoy the champagne reception prior to the show.I booked through head office then got the local number spoke to the reception said i was springing a surprise and they said any help they could do just let them know. On the morning i contacted the hotel once again spoke to a different receptionist no problem and we organised now the surprise would unfold. and I had also booked table for lunch. My husband and i arrived and the receptionist and duty manager played out the scene of events.
We almost thought he going to pass out with the shock, but a pint of Adnams calmed the nerves followed By the Pork Tenderloin and a very nice bottle of wine had him back on an even keel. We were off to the theatre before dinner so we were kindly offered a ham and cheese ploughmans to enjoy before our taxi arrived also booked for us by the hotel.By this time i had met receptionist number one who had heard everything had gone to plan. We were given a room in the garden annex, this was lovely and big, the bed was huge, bathroom spacious and plenty of hanging space and a chest of draws.
\\The next morning we said goodbye and thanked the staff for all their help.
My lasting memory of this hotel, we arrived to hear the staff laughing and thoroughly
enjoying their job and it was no different the next morning.
Can't wait to return again. less
