Good Hotel Guide Review
‘The attention to detail, excellent service and quality of cooking at this brilliant restaurant-with-rooms have set the standard by which other hotels will be judged.’ Guide readers this year continue to endorse this ‘great’ enterprise, owned by Ruth and David Watson and Tim Sunderland, in a pretty town on the River Ore. ‘To find somewhere that gets it all right without a single false note is a joy.’ Some guests may be rattled by the house rules that accompany each booking (gadgets discouraged at dinner, etc), but others find them ‘clear, helpful and very welcome – a major delight’. In the much-praised restaurant, dine on ‘an interesting, Italian-influenced mix’ of ‘knock-out food’ – perhaps Orford-landed cod, sautéed salsify, girolles, potato gnocchi – accompanied by a ‘fun, eclectic’ wine list. (‘A request for gluten-free options was acknowledged with no fuss.’) Spend the night, afterwards, in one of the ‘tastefully styled’ bedrooms. ‘Our immaculate suite had a good-sized sitting area, a splendid modern bathroom, even a little balcony. Best of all: a big, really comfortable bed.’ (Gwyn Morgan, Iseult Beatty, Tony and Ginny Ayers, and others)
