Good Hotel Guide Review
The view is one of marshes and moored boats, of creeks and children crabbing, from Emma Stannard’s well-established, family-friendly hotel on the quayside of a coastal village. ‘It has maintained its standards,’ writes a returning visitor this year. Other regular guests agree: ‘It’s an attractive, welcoming place – no wonder we drive 300 miles for our annual visit. Many of the staff are long stayers, and it’s a joy to experience their charm, cheerfulness and efficiency.’ Several of the well-equipped bedrooms overlook the estuary; some others have a patio leading to the garden. ‘My beautiful Granary room opened, through double doors, on to the green lawn, with a few steps along for a sea view.’ ‘Top-class’ food is served all day inside or out; in the newly refurbished restaurant, the seasonal menu of ‘good local food’ might include grilled fillet of plaice, mashed potatoes, roast fennel, steamed courgettes. From day to night, children are well catered for, with flexible dining options, a games room, board games at the ready; the indoor swimming pool is particularly attractive on a rainy day.
