Hi Claire

First of all I would like to say thank you for creating such a wonderful property, everyone who came were blown away of how amazing the place looked. You have truly turned an old pub into something that looks like a boutique hotel.

The whole specification of the Derwent has been done at the highest standard, from everything from the decor to the electrics and heating. I will ensure that I include all this with the feedback give you on trip advisor.

There's nothing really that can be improved from such a fantastic property. It was definitely a 30th birthday to remember. Thank you.

Kind regards,

Guy Jones
