Rutland Lodges and Mill Cottage at Greetham Valley are all assessed annually by VisitBritain’s Quality in Tourism inspectors and we are delighted to rate 4* across the board for our holiday break lodges and cottage.
This summer our inspector Jill had some really good suggestions to help us improve even further – just little things that actually have a big impact.
For example, in Mill Cottage, the bedrooms were all freshly decorated in cream and white emulsion with cream and white linen. ‘Rustic’ pictures adorned the walls and Jill agreed all looked very clean and welcoming. She then suggested one feature wall in each of two of the bedrooms – using modern, striking wallpaper – and change the ‘old fashioned’ pics. As we were still cleaning the cream paint off our hands, we were a bit reluctant to dig out the DIY gear again but eventually followed her advice – and what a difference!
Jill sees so many properties in her quality assessment role – she certainly knows what works. We are now going to incorporate this ‘feature wall’ theme throughout our Hotel in our winter maintenance programme
We also welcome suggestions from our guests regarding how to improve on their experience at Greetham Valley – please do get in touch with us with your ideas!
