Good Hotel Guide Review
‘It oozes quality.’ ‘They made us feel like royalty.’ ‘Unreservedly recommended.’ A chorus of praise this year for this ‘fabulous’ B&B, in a ‘superb’ spot ‘convenient for the town and surrounding countryside’. Across the footbridge from the RSC Theatre, ‘marvellous’ hosts Tony Godel and Royd Laidlow receive a standing ovation for their ‘friendly’ welcome and the ‘delicious’ home-baked cake they offer to arriving guests. Bedrooms are ‘clean’ and ‘tastefully decorated’; all have bathrobes, a Roberts radio, tea- and coffee-making facilities, home-made biscuits, helpful local information. ‘Quiet and elegant, our comfortable suite had a private conservatory and a view on to the carefully tended water garden.’ Wake refreshed: breakfast, with juice and freshly ground coffee, is as you like it. ‘Generous, with very good choice’, the spread includes fruit, Drambuie cream porridge, a selection of omelettes, a full English with award-winning sausages; granola, bread and marmalade are all home made. Popular with theatregoers; Tony Godel, a former stage manager, speaks with enthusiasm about the latest productions. This B&B will close in October 2017. (Wayne Ewing, Melinda Varcoe, Sharon Stuthard)
