Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Well liked by traditionalists and locals’, Emma and Hugh Asher’s creeper-smothered hotel in a market town close to the coast was buzzing on a Saturday night when Guide readers arrived. ‘The door was opened for us, with offers to carry our bags.’ The bedroom had matching curtains and bedcover, a large wardrobe, ‘all in good decorative order’. The bathroom had a ‘powerful walk-in shower, almost a water cannon’ and a freestanding bath. Some rooms have a four-poster, some overlook lovely gardens. In the bar, nuts, olives and warm canapés were brought, as ‘piano music drifted from the dining room’. Photos in the lounge recall that Agatha Christie stayed here often when this was a private house. It is no mystery, however, why ‘the dining room was packed’. Chef Steven Norgate, whose food attracts ‘a loyal following’, wins praise for such dishes as buttered tiger prawns, browned almonds, pea shoot salad; halibut, wilted spinach, pea and prawn risotto. ‘There are terrific vegetarian options – and it would be a crime not to go for a pudding.’ At breakfast, juices are freshly squeezed, and the buffet and cooked dishes are ‘top notch’.

Guest comments

'From Australia and just driving around England on holidays, my wife and I found the Beechwood a great place to stop for two nights and enjoy the surroundings. Staff were terrific, as was the food, and the room was very comfortable. ' - Keith Murdoch - July, 2015
'Everything about this hotel is more than just good. The room was very comfortable, staff were very friendly and obliging, and top marks for the food, always excellent. ' - Jack Hanmer - August, 2014
'We visited four times while house-hunting. Don Birch and Lindsay Spalding are exemplary hosts, hands-on owners who take an interest in every guest. They are in evidence most days but when they are not, standards are maintained thanks to a highly professional staff. The hotel facilities are immaculately maintained. The large double rooms are spacious and comfortably furnished. Large bathrooms have underfloor heating, slipper-style bath and walk-in shower. The restaurant has plenty of space between tables and the service is attentive but unobtrusive. The food is beautifully cooked and presented. Local sources are named in the menu. One of us is vegetarian and a special menu was prepared for her each evening. ' - Andrew Aitken - April, 2012
