Good Hotel Guide Review

Above the dene (ravine with a stream), surrounded by ‘attractive woodland’, sits Peter Candler’s ‘impressive’ 19th-century hotel. Guests praise the ‘consistently attentive, friendly staff’; ‘customer satisfaction is highly prized’. The rugged stone facade belies cosy interiors, where ‘grand fireplaces’ and ‘comfortable seating’ populate ‘spacious’ wood-panelled lounges. The chef’s modern British dinner menu changes with the season. Typical dishes include ‘small, but tasty’ portions of Himalayan salt-aged flat-iron steak; mushroom, spinach, black truffle pithivier. ‘The wine list is very good.’ Bedrooms in the main house differ in size and shape – one might have a skylight or roof terrace; others large bay windows – while those in adjacent New House are cossetingly private. All have a supply of homely comforts including ground coffee, biscuits, fresh milk and good toiletries, and sport those contemporary essentials, a soft palette and lack of clutter. However, ‘the bathroom could do with updating’. Breakfast, in a conservatory overlooking the garden, has ‘an extensive buffet’ and decent cooked options, along with ‘pleasingly tart fresh orange juice’.

Guest comments

'I had a very enjoyable stay. Staff greet one by name and with a smile: customer care is a priority and customer satisfaction highly prized. I was impressed by the immediate response to the problem of a slow-draining sink, and by the solicitous enquiries subsequently to ensure I was happy. ' - RG - March, 2017
'Delightful hotel surprisingly quiet given proximity to the city centre. The room was beautifully appointed and spacious. The food in the restaurant is imaginative but service was slow. ' - Sara Hollowell - January, 2015
