Wow, so that was August… where has the time gone!
It has been a month in the driving seat now, and things are slowly but surely changing.
The biggest change this month is getting our online booking facility up and running, and the new website has certainly been a big hit with lots of new interest and enquiries- so thank you very much for everyone’s support.
The newly decorated bar has been very popular. The new decor has really opened up the bar and it is much more welcoming. We have also taken out our draught beers and replaced them with a selection of beers from the Ringwood brewery. We thought it is more interesting to try the local brews, and we are receiving positive feedback from guests too!
August has also seen us be the proud hosts of several beautiful weddings and we want to wish all our newly married couples every success together for the future.
We have also managed to achieve the impossible…. We have great mobile phone reception in our public areas! And all achieved without having to move the hotel out of the forest, the beauty of mobile booster technology. This is making a big difference to both guests and conference delegates.
We have hired a gardener too; Prince Gardens will now being taking care of our formal lawn and help us develop our wild forest garden at the back of the hotel. We are still looking for someone who would like a project, and help develop our kitchen garden
We have also been creating our winter (although there is still time to enjoy the summer with us!) and Christmas offers, please look on the special offers section of the website for all our offers, but we are offering some fantastic deals, 342 deals, 1 night
dinner, bed and breakfast for £139.95 for two on Sundays, Mondays or Tuesdays
in November to end of January 2012. We are also offering a cracking wedding package for the winter from only £999 so come and have a grand wedding with us….
Our Christmas package is already proving successful with a two night stay from only £369!
We are now offering gift certificates to the hotel. These make excellent gifts and range between a Sunday lunch for 4 to an overnight stay and breakfast.
I will keep everyone posted on all the changes and offers that we have at the moment, but in the meantime I look forward to welcoming you to the hotel or to try our delicious Sunday lunch.
If you want to get in touch with me, I would love to hear from you either through the blog or Facebook & twitter, which I also try and keep updated.
See you soon!
