We have beautiful, colour co-ordinated, stylish and contemporary decorations (no tinsel!) with a Xmas tree in the hall, another tree in the bar/restaurant, one in the lounge and another in the Rutherford Bench, beautifully artificial but with a twist. Some of them are just made of copper discs and the other one is made of brown and copper fir-like branches. We think the whole place looks stunning.
You can see the restaurant and the kitchen, as well as meet Gerard and Nina Basset, in this excerpt from the popular ITV series 'The Secrets of My Success'.
