Good Hotel Guide Review

There is a country house feel to Peter Candler’s ‘friendly’, ‘surprisingly peaceful’ Tudor-style mansion in a wooded valley just five minutes by car from the city centre. Standing in ‘lovely’ grounds, the listed building is an eclectic mix of historical architectural detail: admire the Jacobean panelling here, the florid William de Morgan tiles there. Cherry-pick from individually designed, ‘beautifully appointed’, modern bedrooms, many with an individual feature – a private terrace, perhaps, or a window seat. All have freshly ground coffee, fresh milk, glossy magazines. Friends or family might book larger rooms with a shared lobby. ‘Our New House room had a lovely garden – compliments to the gardener. One gripe? Poor lighting. But the staff brought a lamp when we mentioned it.’ The ‘vast’ afternoon teas are popular with locals and walk-in visitors; in the evening, chef Michael Penaluna’s modern British dinners are no less of a treat. The ‘extraordinarily varied’ breakfast is worth waking up for: besides freshly squeezed juices and ‘excellent’ home-baked croissants, try Craster kippers with seaweed butter. ‘Good walks down to the dene.’ (SH, and others)

Guest comments

'I had a very enjoyable stay. Staff greet one by name and with a smile: customer care is a priority and customer satisfaction highly prized. I was impressed by the immediate response to the problem of a slow-draining sink, and by the solicitous enquiries subsequently to ensure I was happy. ' - RG - March, 2017
'Delightful hotel surprisingly quiet given proximity to the city centre. The room was beautifully appointed and spacious. The food in the restaurant is imaginative but service was slow. ' - Sara Hollowell - January, 2015
