          I gave my parents a gift of one night at Hacklewood. They raved about it and said they were waited on hand and foot. They had a wonderful time and found the staff very helpful. I experienced the service I received from Chantel (in terms of arranging the booking and her answers to my questions) as EXCELLENT. It was a great gift to give. I did think it pricey though.
