I visited with four girlfriends for a lovely weekend away from it all.

The understated entry hall was still very welcoming late at night on arrival, and the rooms are spacious and well appointed, with the public areas all having a stylish, smartly luxurious feeling. All the staff I dealt with were very helpful, especially when I needed an Iphone charger. The bar has a great feel with an excellent range of wine...

We had both our ceremony and reception at MLH. Through the entire process the staff were attentive and understanding and always happy to help. Everything went seamlessly and there is nothing I can say that accurately reflects the amazing service we received in the lead up to and through the day. I cannot recommend MLH and the staff highly enough
