I love this hotel and came here

I love this hotel and came here for our wedding night as we had completely amazing honey themed high tea a few months earlier. I even forgot to take my wedding jewellery from the room and the hotel was able to locate it and return to me within the same day. It's not cheap but OH SO WORTH IT. Love the mirrors EVERYWHERE and the Ren (organic) products! Would have loved disposal toothbrush and toothpaste there as we came straight from our wedding party...
