Truth be told, the new wing has breathed new life into Half Moon
No surprise, really, that on checkout, reservations were immediately made to secure rooms at Eclipse at Half Moon for the next visit. Rave reviews had come from the likes of Patrick Smith, Dr Patricia Yap, Carmen Brown-Morrow and Chris Berry (think: Rarely impressed!) but the proof of the pudding has always been in sampling for yourself of the fully laden spoons of gooey delight… the pretty spectacular property is worth sampling.
Truth be told, the new wing has breathed new life into Half Moon, from the well-appointed reception area complete with Michael Lester murals and photographs from the owners’ private collection to impeccably crafted cocktails at the Lester Bar and fine but unpretentious dining at Delmare.
Be sure to ask for Assistant Restaurant Manager Jourdain Perrien and allow Chef Claudio Facchinetti to guide you through the menu (the Chilean Sea Bass and risotto are as good as at Milan’s Hotel Principe di Savoia). Bravo, Chef!
Repairing to the four-bedroom Estate House at Eclipse is, however, the pièce de résistance.
