Good Hotel Guide Review

‘As the owners claim, this is neither B&B nor hotel, but a family home that welcomes guests,’ writes a Guide insider, of this ‘classic Georgian manor house, deep in the countryside’ beneath Mount Nephin. ‘A combination of relaxed hospitality and able efficiency set the pace for our two-night stay.’ Susan Kellett and her son, DJ, are welcoming hosts. The interiors are ‘a fair chaos of antiques, paintings and period furnishings’, stuffed animals, family portraits. There are two ‘enormous’ sitting rooms, one with a ‘decidedly aristocratic air’, the other less formal, where tea was served by a peat fire. Approached by a ‘grand staircase’, the lofty Major’s Room had a bed with a quarter canopy, blankets rather than a duvet, no cups or kettle – just ask and a tea tray is delivered. A ‘glorious’ bathroom had ‘a deep, Victorian bathtub with amazing views’, separate shower, ‘good toiletries’. Guests gather for drinks in the former library, before dinner cooked by Susan with locally produced, fished, foraged and home-grown ingredients. Breakfast, too, is ‘just wonderful’, with creamy porridge, home-made bread, the full Irish.
