THE DIAL HOUSE, Reepham, Norfolk is this month’s prizegiver. A Georgian house on a market square, its rooms are styled on a geographic theme. Close your eyes and you might fancy you are in a Parisian garret, in the mysterious east, on safari, or in a Venetian palazzo. Each room has a marble bathroom with a roll-top bath and drench shower, a record player to give vinyl a spin. Since Hannah Springham and Andrew Jones arrived three years ago, they have introduced a new cocktail bar. In the restaurant set across three dining rooms, the menus reflect the principles of ‘fine produce, not fine dining’, with ingredients sourced direct from farmers, in dishes such as Swannington bavette steak cooked over sustainable charcoal, black garlic, kale, red wine jus; lentil and aubergine shepherd’s pie. Breakfast, served in the spacious and airy Aga room, is of a similarly high standard.

All you need to do to win this handsome prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at the Dial 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.

Mary Woods from West Sussex is the winner of last month’s prize of dinner, bed, and breakfast for two at HOTEL RIVIERA, Sidmouth, Devon. On the esplanade, overlooking the pink-pebble beach, the stuccoed Regency-style hotel is liked for its old-style values. A bow-windowed sea-view room is top choice, but town-facing rooms are fine. All have room service, cut flowers, fresh milk on request. The staff are friendly and attentive. In the restaurant, dinner has imaginative but unpretentious cooking including dishes such as Dover sole with chive butter or mushroom stroganoff. Breakfast, cooked to order, includes freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juice, fresh-baked pastries, kippers, smoked haddock, gammon and hash brown.
