Good Hotel Guide Review

In ‘an oasis of calm’, Peter Candler’s ‘impressive, imposing’ hotel stands in ‘an attractive wooded dell, with paths leading into woodland for exploration’. ‘Customer care is a priority here,’ says a Guide inspector in 2017 who was ‘warmly greeted’ by name. ‘Spacious’ wood-panelled lounges have prints and pictures; there are ‘grand fireplaces’; ‘a variety of comfortable seating is arranged for small groups’. Pick one of the modern, uncluttered bedrooms in the main building or adjacent New House: each is supplied with ground coffee, biscuits and fresh milk on the tea tray, good toiletries in the bathroom. ‘Up a narrow back staircase, my upper-floor room had a balcony with seating; a dimly lit bathroom. Housekeeping was efficient.’ In the restaurant, chef Michael Penaluna’s short, seasonally-changing menu lists inventive dishes (‘served in designer-style portions’), perhaps ‘perfectly cooked Northumberland venison saddle with wafer-thin, crisp, smoky bacon’. At breakfast: ‘an extensive cold buffet; good-quality toast and scrambled eggs; wonderful fresh orange juice, chilled and inspiringly tart – just right to wake one up’.

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
