My partner and I stayed at the Dog and Doublet for two nights when attending a wedding reception at Sandon Hall. The Dog and Doublet is situated directly opposite the gate house of Sandon Hall in a prime position if you are looking for accomodation. I arrived prior to my partner having travelled from Portsmouth, my first impression was how clean and modern the interior was. I was greeted by Adam and he carried my bags to the room, which was in one of the converted stables. The room was quite small but tastefully decorated and clean. Everything needed was to hand including tea making tray, hairdryer and complimentary soaps, shower gel and shampoo. My partner arrived about half an hour later. We had fun trying to get the shower to fill the bath but this was rectified the next morning when we were shown how to convert it! We had a superb meal in the restaurant that evening I had a rump steak that was cooked to perfection served with BIG chips - boy were they big and I think that would be my only complaint the BIG chips were a little too BIG for my liking. They even provided custard for my partner which was not on the menu but was no trouble for the kitchen to russle it up. The next morning breakfast was served in the dining room and we had a relaxing morning sitting around in the lounge reading the complimentary newspapers and generally chatting to the staff and other guests before preparing for the wedding reception. All in all I have to say we had a most enjoyable stay and I cannot fault the owner or the staff in anyway. The whole team contributed to a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend. Thank you guys.
