Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Excellent in every way’, John and Louise Mathers’s ‘gracious’, traditionally decorated guest house has ‘star quality’, says a trusted Guide reader in 2016. The creeper-covered Georgian home has been in the Mathers family for six generations; today, after much sensitive restoration, its rooms are filled with tapestries, paintings, photographs and antiques. Arrive to home-made biscuits and freshly brewed tea or coffee in the drawing room; upstairs, step into an attractive bedroom overlooking the mature gardens. ‘My room was elegantly furnished with a Victorian dressing table and a recently upholstered bucket-style chair and chaise longue; the bathroom was spotless.’ Up-to-date technology and high-end toiletries are standard. Reserve a space for the host’s ‘delicious’ three-course dinner, served Tuesday to Sunday at 8 pm. (Light meals of home-made soup and sandwiches are available the rest of the week.) Breakfast is ‘superb’: chilled, freshly squeezed orange juice, ‘wonderfully yellow and sloppy’ scrambled eggs, ‘first-rate’ spicy black pudding, toast from a home-baked loaf. (Robert Gower)
