From the moment I had bar food lunch on a scouting trip, to our check-in (sitting down with a complimentary hot toddy), to our well apportioned rooms, to our wonderful gourmet dining experience - to nightcaps and finally to a complimentary hot chocolate after a brisk walk before we left - all 7 of us loved this hotel!
