Good Hotel Guide Review
From the moment of arrival at this Tudor manor house on the banks of the River Wye, say readers, ‘we knew this was the place where we wanted to spend time’. Run today as a restaurant-with-rooms by Helen and Roger Wynn, the ‘lovely old building’ dates in parts from 1500, and was at one time a magistrates’ court. Beneath the cosy, panelled library, formerly part of the courtroom, there is said to be a passage leading to what was the jail. Today’s bedrooms offer a more hospitable sentence. Bright and traditional, some have exposed beams, William Morris wallpaper, an original fireplace, ‘glorious river views’. All have good toiletries, kimonos, complimentary bottled water. ‘The patio and garden area make a wonderful place to relax’, observing gliding swans. In the Mulberry restaurant, head chef Rachael Williams cooks a weekly-changing, locally sourced menu with good choices for meat-eaters – perhaps her signature fillet of Herefordshire beef, lyonnaise potatoes, savoy cabbage, mustard cream sauce – alongside fish and vegetarian options. As we went to press we learnt that the hotel is up for sale. We await more reports. (B and JH)
