You’re in a hotel. So you have a standard hotel room and amenities at your disposal. At the country club there was a gym, a swimming pool, a selection of walking trails, an outdoor adventure area, a golf course and more. Tea and coffee machines dotted the communal areas, there were snack machines and several bars. Two computer terminals were located in the communal area near reception and there was free wifi connection throughout the hotel for laptops and smartphones.
Your cleaning is done for you. Beds are changed daily and fresh towels for the bathroom provided on demand. Every room has a kettle, glasses and mugs plus a supply of teabags, coffee sachets and sugars. There is also an ironing board and iron as standard.
No worries about food. Three meals a day in the restaurant, cooked and served by a team of commercial chefs. Multiple courses and multiple choice including a vegetarian option as standard and catering for dietary requirements by prior arrangement.
No worries about bills. Once you’ve paid for the room or event, it seems like everything else except alcohol and the snack machine is free. You can shower as much as you like, turn the heat in your room up or down according to your preference. You can drink tea all day (I know, I did!) and eat as much as you like at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
At this hotel, the beds were very comfortable, which permitted two good nights’ sleep, and the only complaints seemed to be from some of the singletons who would have preferred to have had a room alone, but were required to share a twin room for logistical reasons.
