  • “Milton Manor met all our needs for this surprise 60th birthday bash, the location, layout & facilities were amazing.”

    Some of the kitchen/cooking utensils weren't as clean as expected and the banquet room floor had signs of dried food, from previous people, under the tables.

    - Rowan, October 2021

    I am truly sorry that you found some of the utensils not clean and signs of dried food from the previous guests, the tables are tricky and often people move them, we often have a short amount of time to turn the house around, but I will make sure this doesn't happen again, also I will ensure the utensils draw is looked into with more details. I hope this did not cause to much trouble as I didn't hear from you during your stay, it sounded like you had a fantastic time! Property Owner
