Good Hotel Guide Review

Callooh! Callay! On the fringe of Dartmoor national park, this Alice-themed hotel is a veritable cabinet of curiosities, a treasure trove of wit and invention. Owners Fran and Pieter Hamman have, say Guide colleagues, ‘achieved an amazing amount’ since 2013 when they set about transforming the Georgian property into a simulacrum of a 19th-century collector’s mansion. Public spaces include a cigar-smoking room dedicated to Churchill, where wine tastings are held. The highly individual bedrooms have handmade furniture and a luxury bathroom with 3D-effect marble tiles. Jabberwocky features mirrors fashioned from brushed-steel aircraft engines above the bed. In Tweedle Deez, with twin four-posters, a boxing glove recalls the pugilistic pair. Cheshire Cat, with illuminated coffee table and a shower for two, should make guests grin from ear to ear. In the restaurant, chefs Ben Palmer and Josh Ackland use seasonal ingredients ‘all sourced within a 50-mile radius’ to create classic dishes with a modern twist. ‘Attentive service’ at Sunday lunch accompanied ‘a hefty beef roast’ and locally landed fish on orzo. Reports, please.
