Good Hotel Guide Review
With a Michelin star and ‘spectacular’ views of the Severn estuary and famous pier from a prime spot on Penarth’s late Victorian esplanade, James Sommerin’s family-run restaurant-with-rooms is ‘a very pleasant place to stay’. The glass-fronted dining room offers clean contemporary design, with light turquoise leather seating nodding to the sea, and a head-height window allowing glimpses of the kitchen where the acclaimed chef works alongside his daughter, Georgia (James’s wife, Louise, runs front-of-house). The locally sourced food is ‘terrific’, writes a regular reader. ‘A fantastic dining experience,’ writes another. Dishes garnering praise include wild sea bass, langoustine, ginger, artichoke; partridge, mushroom, vanilla, onion; 32-day-aged sirloin, oxtail, shallot, red wine jus. Upstairs are ‘beautifully appointed, very modern’ bedrooms; ‘extremely comfortable’ beds and top-class toiletries. Five rooms have a queen-size bed and ‘wonderful views’ through floor-to-ceiling windows, although one guest considered them ‘slightly basic’. Breakfast includes home-made granola, coffee, eggs all ways. Service was ‘excellent and discreet’. ‘Wonderful in every aspect.’ (Peter Kettell, Catrin Treadwell)
