Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Pretty well perfect’, Toby Ashworth’s seaside hotel on the Roseland peninsula, founded nearly 30 years ago by his grandmother, continues to please. ‘The ethos is a little old-fashioned,’ which is much of the hotel’s appeal for regular visitors: sheets or duvets are provided according to guests’ tastes; a valet is available to unpack bags on arrival; silver service is the rule in the dining room. Homely, ‘comfortable’ bedrooms, many with a balcony or private terrace for the best sea views, are ‘a pleasure to be in’. No two are the same, but all have fresh flowers, armchairs, plenty of magazines. ‘We had to change rooms in the middle of our stay (my mistake), but it was managed with the minimum of fuss and inconvenience.’ Come dinnertime, chef Richard James serves a ‘delicious’ daily-changing five-course table d’hôte menu. ‘They encourage gentlemen to wear jacket and tie at dinner, but with no overt disapproval if you don’t.’ Less formal meals are served in the nautical Quarterdeck restaurant. Travelling with family? The facilities are ideal: croquet, a safe beach, a ‘superb’ heated outdoor swimming pool. (David Lodge). This hotel is a member of Pride of Britain hotels.
