Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Standards are as high as they ever were’ at David and Heather Armstrong’s farmhouse hotel and restaurant, says a returning guest this year. The homely atmosphere is a draw. ‘David and Heather go out of their way to oblige every request.’ ‘Stunning’ gardens surround the building; inside, relax in the ‘bright and comfortable’ lounge, which has a piano and plenty of books. ‘Large’ bedrooms, some with ‘flamboyant’ touches, have a ‘firm’ double bed and ‘every extra – lovely toiletries, home-made biscuits, chocolates/sweets and a fridge for milk, bottled water, etc’. Pre-dinner drinks and canapés are served in the lounge before visitors sit down to David Armstrong’s ‘very tasty’ dinners. The ‘well-cooked’, ‘farmhouse-style’ dishes, served in ‘manageable’ portions, might include home-made pâté; rack of Yorkshire lamb, blackcurrant and port gravy. Vegetarians are well catered for with their own menu. Guests wake up to an ‘extremely good’ breakfast. ‘It really sets you up for the day. The apricot and nut toast was wonderful with their apricot preserve.’ Riverside walks are easily accessible. (Christine Hodgkin)

Guest comments

'It is about five years since we last visited Clow Beck. It was lovely to see David and Heather again. Standards are as high as they ever were, and they go out of their way to oblige every request. The rooms are large enough and have every extra, lovely toiletries, home made biscuits, chocolates/sweets and a fridge for milk, bottled water, etc. The food is well cooked and tasty, and has improved as regards portion size, and the veg, served separately, are sensible in amount. Breakfast still is extremely good, and sets you up for the day. Their apricot and nut bread toasted, is wonderful with their apricot preserve. ' - Christine Hodgkin - September, 2015
'Warm greeting. Excellent bedroom and bathroom. The meal was excellent; so were the breakfasats. Very good dog-walking facilities. ' - David Innes - October, 2011
'Having stayed here before, we were delighted to find everything just as good as before with a warm welcome, excellent room and good food. ' - Averil Wilkinson - August, 2011
