Greetings from the New Forest!
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas… getting very excited today, as the trees in the hotel are going up. Again we have a real 12ft tree to go in the Restaurant and several smaller trees and lights to go elsewhere in the hotel, we are also getting our big fire place display (complete with fairy lights) thanks to Kay at Pomp and Petals. Our big White Company Candle has also been lit giving a gorgeous Christmassy smell, so come down and join us J
November has flown by, with two lovely weddings and the fabulous wedding showcase we have survived the start of winter with a sparkle overload- no better way to do it!
We are also learning from our newest General Assistant Steve, who is a bit of an expert at making coffee and has been teaching us all to make it a bit better!!!! There is a lot to know to get the perfect coffee…. He is also teaching us about Cocktails, although I may have sampled more than I have made so far… but great to hone this new skill in time for Christmas, as what’s the Christmas party without a Christmas Cocktail.
We have been busy renovating too this month, with the new bathroom put into room 16 and due to an issue in room 18 there is also a new shower in there too. Both look super and thank you Gary for putting up with me keep popping in and saying ‘just another little thing…’ the man has some patience!
This month is set to be busy, with some party nights to come, as well as Christmas lunches before we get to the main event and the New Year. We are going into this period hopeful that it will be less eventful than last year!!!! Let’s hope for no more Christmas Day BBQs.
Please look at our Christmas section on the website if you would like to join us for any of our festive activities.
Wishing you all a happy and healthy Christmas and wonderful start to the New Year and we look forward to welcoming you soon
Take Care, I am off for a restorative walk in the Forest!
