Greetings from the New Forest
Happy New Year, we hope you had a lovely Christmas too. We had a fantastic December and really enjoyed both our party nights and had some lovely guests stay with us too for our Christmas package. As usual I hosted the Christmas day quiz and absolutely loved getting to know all the guests and having a great laugh as we went through the night… and may be one or two cosmos! New Years eve was also a great night and despite working against the odds chef pulled off a great feast of 5 courses and then we finished the night by dancing.
It’s a quiet time at the hotel this week. So I am trying to convince Robert we need to redecorate the reception… not sure if that’s going to work yet but give me time! We also redecorated room 17 our bridal suite in December and it looks a lot crisper and fresher , so it’s the room to book! Although trying to purchase conservatory furniture is quite a challenge in mid December so might wait a few weeks to see what we can find to furnish the conservatory for the summer.
The weather has been wonderful and crisp – although super cold and so the Forest has been amazing and breath-taking to walk in.
We also have some great deals at the moment, rooms are from £64 this week B&B – so it really is cheaper than staying at home.
We also have a new menu launching later this week and so I am excited to see what Andy Smith has prepared for us!!
Finally, thank you to all our staff and all the guests that have supported us throughout 2016 and we look forward to welcoming you in 2017.
