Greetings from the New Forest!
Wow, wow, wow what weather we have been having! Amazing forest walk today followed by relaxing in the sunshine, with my family! Long may it last, and I have said it before but will say it again, there is no better place to be than the New Forest.
So, June has just gone in a blur great to see so many guests having a lovely New Forest break and we hope to welcome them back again soon.
We also were lucky enough to celebrate 4 weddings this month, and wish all our couples our very best wishes for their future together and hope that we will become a permanent fixture in their married lives together. It was also a pleasure to welcome back Mr & Mrs Symonds for their first anniversary. I was so sorry not to be able to chat, for those who I have not bored about it I had my wisdom teeth out in June too- all I will say is OOOOOOouchhh!!!
We had a great Father’s Day BBQ and I think all the staff enjoyed it too!! It was a pretty rubbish weather day and really appreciate everyone making the effort to come out and make the day a success. There were quite a few no shows and I cannot imagine how good it could have been if we had been lucky with the weather- perhaps next year. We had face painting and a bouncy castle and all the staff got painted as pirates after the event!
We were also awarded our trip advisor certificate of excellence (I am very proud to say again) this is awarded to businesses that have consistently performed well over the past year and I can honestly say that this is down to our dedicated, friendly and hardworking staff- so a massive thank you!
Another month and another inspector, we welcomed the AA inspector to the hotel who had a tour of the hotel and could see all our hard work, and he wants us to continue with our refurbishment plans! And next year we will have our full mystery guest inspection. It is always good to get the encouragement, as we have shelved our refurb plans for the summer it gets us motivated for the winter- promise I am not wishing away the summer!!
The Forest is waiting and the weather is warm, so we hope to see you soon.
