Hi Sandy and Grant
We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you both for hosting such a fab weekend for us all. We know Grant you said you would email me about feedback, but we couldn't wait to send this email as we wanted you to know asap how great we thought everything was!
From the moment we arrived you made us feel at home and Charlotte and I really appreciated you being so relaxed about us putting up decorations in the house.
Afternoon Tea was a delight and the way you had laid the table was perfect, just the look we were hoping for. We also appreciated Grant putting up the bunting for us. The scones, straight from the oven were a delight and the Easter cake and Victoria sponge were amazing. You helped to create a lovely laid back and relaxed atmosphere and we loved having the background music too.
The canapés were very special. It was just enough and everyone was commenting on how good they were. We liked that Grant came in and explained what each canapé was. A lovely touch.
When we walked into the conservatory for the evening meal, you had transformed it so amazingly. What an amazing contrast from the Afternoon Tea to the evening meal. The candle lights and the white fur chair covers were stunning and it made the room look so glam and classy. This was right up the bride's street! Your attention to detail was brilliant. It didn't go unnoticed that the song you had playing when we first walked into the conservatory for the meal was 'You've got the Love'. Brilliant! Such a special moment and one that we will all remember for years to come.
The 3 course dinner was brilliant. You were both so attentive, making sure all our food was served at the same time and that our drinks were always topped. Up. But at the same time, you knew when to just hang back and let us soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the food. We couldn't believe how big the salmon was! Portion sizes were perfect. And how thoughtful of you to put 'Jenna's Hens' on the pastry. So fab and it's this kind of thing that really sets you apart from other hotels/B&Bs etc.
We loved that you put the haribos into the Eaton Mess. It was clear that you really wanted to make the meal special for us and the fact that you were trying to find ways to incorporate other aspects of the hen do into the meal was brilliant.
You were both really organised and we felt assured that you had everything in hand. For example, handing round a breakfast menu the night before was really good.
Talking of breakfast….both mornings we were bowled over by how amazing breakfast was. From the home made granola to the selection of pastries, breads and teas. Also, the cooked element of the breakfast was great, so much choice and everyone loved what they chose. We couldn't get over the blueberry pancakes, a dream!
The quality of the rooms was great. The beds were very comfy, the views from the lodge were stunning (everyone commented on this) and just little things like big bottles of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in the showers (rather than those awful small pots you get in hotels) as well as the docking stations for music were all brilliant.
Lara the dog was also gorgeous, she was so relaxed and quiet and not phased at all by all of us!
All in all, the lodge definitely made the weekend what it was. You provided excellent value for money and we are already talking about coming back for the inevitable baby showers etc! We would be more than happy to recommend your lodge for any future hen weekends and I wish you luck with your business in the coming years.
Many thanks again
Laura and Charlotte (April 2015)
