Tripadvisor Review – August 2011
February 24, 2015
“5/5 Truly 5****”
We had 2 rooms at the Yacht over August bank holiday weekend for my brothers wedding.
We had a ‘Platinum suite’ on the 4th floor, and a ‘silver double’ in the old part of the hotel. The high standards of the hotel are well documented and I agree with them all but what makes this place different are the special touches examples below;
Eating fresh oysters alfresco (under a heat lamp!) with a chilled bottle of Champagne, whilst your 4 year old sits with you tucking into a fresh and healthy ‘kids meal’ with a freshly juiced smoothy, whilst your teenagers sit up at the ‘trendy’ high bar eating Sushi, what an environment?!!! Oh and when you are too full to order the cheeseboard…. but really want it, the waitress carried it up to the suite for me, put it on the balcony and poured the wine 🙂
When we went to don our complimentary robes and slippers (to eat the cheese and drink the wine;) Our robes were still a little damp from our afternoon trip to the spa. I called housekeeping and within 5 minutes a member of staff knocked and delivered WARM robes.
My brother works in the hospitality industry and his expectations for his wedding were especially high. Judith Peebles the wedding co-ordinator didn’t just meet his demands but exceeded them? The whole event was truly stunning. How that woman manages to remain so calm when dealing with an event like this is beyond me, I would recommend her, and her staff in a heartbeat. The cheese and cigars on the balcony for the boys and the tea and cake (or champers) for the girls was just one highlight.
We have stayed in 5 star hotels around the world both for pleasure and business, and we have vowed to make The Yacht a ‘must do’ every year for a short break.
Oh, and if you are checking out TA for wedding venues……stop now, you’ve found it.”
