BALLYMALOE HOUSE, Shanagarry, Co.Cork, is this month’s prizegiver. This legendary country house hotel has been owned and run by the Allen family for more than half a century. A wisteria-draped Georgian manor house, it began life in 1964 as a restaurant opened by Myrtle Allen, a farmer’s wife. She died in 2018 but the food continues to be outstanding; the hotel is run in a delightful non-commercial spirit. Bedrooms, in the main house and in garden and courtyard annexes, have country house decor, a mix of period and contemporary furniture, and fresh-cut flowers.
All you need to do to win this handsome prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at the Ballymaloe House is to SEND A REVIEW of your favourite hotel or B&B in Great Britain or Ireland. We welcome reports on places that have never been in the Guide or have been omitted, as well as those that have a current entry.
Tessa Stuart from London is the winner of last month’s prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at BEDRUTHAN HOTEL & SPA. A family-friendly traditional hotel, it stands above a fine Cornish beach with rock pools, sandy coves, and good surfing. Set into the cliff-top, the interiors have been updated over the decades (out with purple carpet and orange bedspreads, in with Scandi-style), but the walls are still hung with work by Cornish artists, and floor-to-ceiling windows frame the same Atlantic views. Dine in The Herring restaurant, on such dishes as hake fillet with curry sauce and pea shoots.
