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)

Guest comments

'From walking through the perfume (choisya ternata) at the entrance gate to the positive welcome from Polly we knew this was where we wanted to spend time. Our front room (10), on the upper floor, although compact, had all the comforts we expect plus glorious views . For dinner there was a good choice. The patio and garden area make a wonderful place to relax. ' - Bob & Jean Henry - May, 2017
'Great position overlooking the Wye, close enough to walk easily in to town but far enough out to be very quiet. Car parking a bit tight but OK. The room was a bit "flowery" but was large, with a splendid view over the river and the old stone bridge. Big bed, very comfortable. The bathroom was modern but on the small side. At dinner the main course venison was enhanced by some good red cabbage and really excellent, garlicky dauphinoise potatoes. Service was good. D,B&B was very good value. ' - Peter Anderson - February, 2016
'Helen and Roger were away and everything was still spot on; very attentive service from Jason, lovely brand-new ground-floor room, river view, quite spacious, with walk-in shower. New, a cosy, residents' sitting room/cum library. They have re-jigged things about a bit and it works well. ' - Richard Morgan-Price - January, 2015
