We booked the hotel because of the location and history, Margaret thatcher stayed here because of the tranquility and location of the hotels and the beautiful grounds. I also chose the hotel because one of my favourite bollywood film was shot here, called Lamhe and I always wanted to stay at this grand hotel since. I am happy to write that I was not disappointed, the staff treated us like royalty, especially Melvyn the door man, who is the friendliest person I have come across and I could tell that he truly takes pride in his Job and forms a special bond with every guest who stays at Nunsmere hall. We stayed in a room called Dhalia, which was charming and beautifully decorated. We found most things in the room, which we have to call the reception for now a days in mordern hotels, they even had a teapot, which is rarely seen in Hotel rooms now. The lounge and bar were both elegantly decorated, and welcoming. The grounds of the hotel are my favorite part, beautifully manicured even in winter. I enjoyed waking along the lake. I will surely return.
The only things which can be improved in my opinion is the breakfast, although served in a beautiful room and with excellet staff, it is not worth pounds 15 at all. The cooked breakfast is a tiny portion and the continental bar lacks choices, there were more condiments than actual breakfast on the serving board. The staff informed me via email on the day the breakfast will cost 19 so it is better to prebook, which was actually not the case, as on the breakfast table there was menu with choices under 10 also.
