Good Hotel Guide Review

Readers ‘had a really lovely, relaxing stay’ at Lila Arora’s apricot-washed Georgian mansion, approached by an avenue of lime trees amid sheep-grazed pastures. Ms Arora is the granddaughter of the late chatelaine, Imogen Skirving, whose personality still infuses the place. The atmosphere is that of an elegant but lived-in private home, filled with paintings, antique clocks, ornaments, crammed bookcases. Your bedroom might have a four-poster, a rocking chair, Staffordshire china dogs on the mantelpiece. Cartland is the very feminine room Dame Barbara favoured. Three rooms are in a wing reached via the church garden at the rear. At dinner, Gary Booth’s fixed-price menus include such dishes as fillet of Blackberry Farm beef, caramelised hispi cabbage, tempura oyster. Its ‘pleasant, cheerful young staff’ are perhaps not yet up to speed, ‘so service was a bit dilatory’. After confusion over soufflé and soup, other Guide regulars described it as ‘eccentric but willing’. A minor grumble, however. In sum: ‘Great room. Magical grounds, as well as lots of history.’ (Peter and Anne Davies, NP, PJ, A and CR)

Guest comments

'We arrived on a golden summer's day. The warmth of welcome carried on into our excellent dinner in a beautiful dining room. We liked the tasteful and far from fussy décor of the public rooms. Our bedroom was small and the light was not good enough for reading n bed. Breakfast, in the sunny conservatory, was a bur chaotic. ' - Jock and Jane Macdonald - December, 2018
'What a lovely hotel. A relaxing stay. Young, enthusiastic staff. Cheerful waiters. ' - Peter and Anne Davies - April, 2018
'Had a great stay at this charming small country hotel on a warm summer's evening. Great room and dinner - slightly eccentric but willing service; very good soup. Magical grounds to wander around ' - Nick Patton - May, 2017
'“Incontinent pigeons roost here” is not perhaps a usual greeting for new arrivals at a hotel but is a thoughtful way of keeping guests’ cars away from the trees where the aforementioned birds live. This consideration is typical of the place. The mission statement is not an empty claim – “A lovely place to stay a special place to eat.” The public rooms and bedrooms are well furnished in a fairly restrained country house style. Food is very reliable. The wine list is extensive and has a number of very reasonably priced bottles.. The enthusiastic young staff are attentive but never intrusive. ' - Peter Jowitt - October, 2016
