My husband and I planned to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary at Wentworth by the sea. We had seen a program on TV around ten years ago that this grand old hotel had been purchased and was being brought back to life. All I can say is Success! The once majestic Hotel built originally in the 1840s was now alive and quite well.
As we drove thru the streets and around the corner to approach the hotel my heart skipped a beat. Their she was in all her glory. Breath taking.
The grounds were beautiful and artistically inspiring even in the dead of winter. As you pulled up to the door as many have done for 100 plus years the doorman quickly and cheerfully greeted and assisted you.
The charm and wonder of the place never ended. Beautiful décor and wonderfully dressed windows. Oh as if time had almost stood still. Yet in a wonderfully clean fresh way. The room we had was CLEAN, with 4 huge bright sunshine filled windows. The view was wonderful as well. The one bad thing I can say about the place is that I am home now and no longer their. I could go on forever. NOTE: If visiting for romance as we did then be sure to check the calendar for when the school vacations are. We did and missed the crowd.
Morning spent with breakfast in bed and other mornings spent in the lovely dining room. We were escorted to our seat by the handsome young host and then treated to a Johnson and Wales Chef as we watch him prepare the most tasty omelete of our directing.
Fun, romance and charm. The place reminded me of the Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve movie SOME WHERE IN TIME!
