Greetings from the New Forest!
Well on the positive side of things it is not snowing today, but seriously snow in April!!! I want to get out and start walking in the New Forest!! Come on Spring…..
Despite the weather we have had a good month, and i am pleased to say our lovely guests have not been letting the weather beat them. We were very fortunate over Easter and had a full hotel and some sunshine too!!!
Disaster struck on Good Friday though and the shower in room 11 broke and not only broke but leaked into the reception with guests in the room on Saturday we went into a panic, good old Trefor our maintenance man came out and tried to help but it was a bust. So we called our guests and luckily they were ok with the problem – so lucky we have separate bath and showers and it did not spoil their break. But this week we have ripped out the whole bathroom and new bathroom will be arriving on Monday. I am very excited with room 11 as it has a gorgeous aspect over looking the garden but needed a tart up, so with the new bathroom we are going to get new curtains and a new carpet for the room too, so a stroke of bad luck has turned out very well for the room 🙂 however, room 14 may be a little delayed now.
Renovations on room 17 are schedule to take place on 21st April for 1 week, so i’ll keep you posted!
Lots of new bits and pieces this month, with new breakfast tables, not sure how it is possible to get so excited over tables but they are AMAZING!!!! Lovely wood square tables make the conservatory- come and breakfast with us 🙂 Also, on a roll we had a team upholstery morning and recovered all the breakfast chairs too.
But, most excitingly of all- the new beds are here!!!! Fabulous Hypnos beds. The Hypnos ethos is focusing on the pursuit of perfection and the delivery of a deep, energizing night’s sleep, helping to fulfill dreams for a healthy life. They are so far living up to expectations and lots of positive comments from guests. So happy!
We launched our Spring menu too, going down a storm – well done John, Sammi and Nick. We have also added an amuse bouche to the menu and a chefs surprise dessert- so definitely come and check us out soon- you will not be disappointed!!!!
