7 of us arrived on Christmas Eve. All rooms were lovely and comfortable. The main house is just stunning . We had a courtyard suite as we took the family dog Nero. He loved it as he could head straight out of the back door into the woods for walkies! Christmas Eve was black tie and had Carol singers in the Great Hall. It was magical as was dinner 5 courses with generous amounts of wine included. Christmas Day was also a huge success. The staff genuinely looked like they wanted to be there and were so friendly and welcoming. The food and wine was impressive , no dry turkey and overcooked veg here! Everyone in our party was delighted ( no mean feat with three generations) After a Boxing day walk and a swim in the charming spa we enjoyed Boxing Day lunch which was optional and later dinner again lots of choice and beautifully cooked and presented. The wine list was extensive and well priced for a hotel. We chose a Chablis at £38 and Chateau Musar at £60 the sommelier was professional,good humoured and friendly. After dinner followed a Casino evening with fake Hartwell money. It kept everyone cheerful and entertained. We were all sorry to be leaving on the morning of the 27th and definitely could have stayed until New Year's Day. Thank you SO much to all the team, led in the restaurant by Mark who made us so welcome. Tremendous can't recommend it enough. Fantastic memories for all the family.
