This maybe a little long for my first post but the reason I joined the forum was to let @ChrisLewis know how we got on at one of his hotels. It was our 17th wedding anniversary yesterday and so decided to treat ourselves with a night away, waking up in luxury on our anniversary. We chose The Moat House as we have previously eaten there many times and thoroughly enjoyed it although we have never stayed overnight before. From the moment we checked in we felt special. Our room was comfy and spacious and as we were too late for the restaurant we made the most of room service and had a delicious mid afternoon sandwich which kept us going until dinner at 8.45pm. The food we ate was just delectable, melt in the mouth and so flavoursome, however, it was our wine waiter Dan and Elliot (Manager I think) who gave us the best service we could ask for. Dan is a young man who obviously enjoys his job. His wine knowledge is great and he was enthusiastic without being overpowering. The champagnes he suggested were spot on and worth every penny. I know he is being paid for doing his job however, he gave the impression he actually cared which in turn made us feel special. Elliot made it clear he hoped we had a good evening and ensured everything went smoothly. A really pleasant chap who was running the 10K on Sunday so we really hope it went well for him. We were not rushed and we were last to leave the restaurant at 11.45pm! We slept extremely well in the super kingsize bed and breakfast was delicious and enjoyable with the beautiful surroundings. We left a tip when we checked out and although we wish we could have left more I feel the best way of singing the praises of the staff is to let the Boss man know what an amazing job they are doing. If I had the teeniest criticism it would be that I was a little cold when we first checked into our room and I couldn't see any way of turning up the temperature of the heater in the room. Thank you all for a wonderful stay.
