    Do you still have a high tea at 4 pm each day and is it open to the public or do you have to be a guest to enjoy? Thanks!

    We do not have a formal high tea. Instead we have wine and savory meats, cheese, etc... for our guests.

    What time is breakfast served in the morning? Is it at a set time or is there a range of time where they serve breakfast? I am trying to plan my itinerary and this information will be helpful in helping me know how early I can schedule any tours. Thanks!

    We are looking to stay at Governor's next year. In England the beautiful Southern veranda is a major attraction and we want to be sure we book a room with direct private access. Which rooms are best and what is the difference between 'porch' and 'veranda ' at Governor's ? Any other room information would be great. Thank you
