Greetings from the New Forest
Well, well well I think you have probably guessed by me writing so late into August that July has been pretty busy. We have had a brilliant month, totally helped by the fantastic weather. Have I mentioned how there is nowhere better to be than the New Forest in the Sunshine…. J
We celebrated our 2nd anniversary of owning the hotel and want to say a massive thank you to our staff for being so brilliant and hardworking and making it so enjoyable to own the Woodlands Lodge – we are very lucky to have such a great team.
We have not stopped our refurbishment plans – although not inside the hotel and have finally managed to re do our patio in room 17 and it looks a lot better than before, and much nicer to sit and relax in the private garden.
We have also re done our stable roof and It looks great, I had no idea how different it would look- and how bad it must have been before!!
We also have 5 new sets of bistro furniture to enjoy this lovely weather out in the garden.
Our epos system is also working really well, and it has made the busy period and especially our functions a lot smoother and faster behind the bar.
We also had our you tube video filmed and it looks brilliant- check it out!!!! We are so pleased to finally be able to show everyone how fabulous our hotel and location are! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPE87b0yTbw
Alex’s Dad has also been to visit and taken some amazing hotel photos and I look forward to sharing them on facebook soon.
I have been busy finalising our Christmas party packages and New Year’s packages – as you can imagine a bit of a struggle in the middle of August, but I am getting into the festive spirit- helped as well by the children who have also decided to get out the Christmas books!! Please have a look at the website and see what we have on offer this festive season- it’s never too early to plan a Christmas party!
Take care and enjoy the rest of the Summer and I will update again next month.
