      We were dining with friends at The French Horn for a special occasion and decided to enhance the experience by staying the night. We are pleased that we did so. The welcome was warm and all the staff were extremely helpful.

      All the staff made you feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. You were made to feel wanted. They even presented my wife with a small birthday cake, pre-arranged by myself.
