Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Luxurious’, ‘relaxing’, ‘warmly welcoming’, Katherine and Geoffrey Smeddle’s rustic restaurant-with-rooms receives rave reviews from trusted correspondents, whose reports earn it a full entry in the Guide. Past the ‘blazing’ log fire in the ‘lovely’ reception lounge, savour Geoffrey Smeddle’s modern, Michelin-starred dishes. ‘Every course was delicious and beautifully served, from the halibut to the pork cheek to the steak to the chocolate dessert. While busy, the restaurant has an unhurried feel.’ Staff are ‘impeccable’; ‘catering for our gluten-intolerant friend wasn’t a problem’. Afterwards, put your feet up in ‘well-kept’, ‘very special’ suites in the separate residence (‘extremely comfortable’ beds, ‘attractive’ bathrooms, garden views). ‘We were glad not to have to drive home on a dark winter’s night.’ Breakfast is served in the suite. ‘Two cheerful ladies came at the agreed time and set it out in our sitting room. It was the perfect amount for the morning after a big meal: soft-boiled eggs, granola, yogurt, smoked haddock; plenty of toast and croissants, with home-made preserves.’ ‘A comfortable base for touring the coastal villages nearby.’ (Jackie and Hugh Tunstall-Pedoe, Colin Adams)

Guest comments

'Most rooms are split-level, five steps down to the bedroom and bathroom, eight up to large lounge area, all in a nice modern setting with carefully chosen wallpaper. There is a lovely garden to sit in. Sherry is in the room on arrival, and the welcome is warm. The a la carte menu was outstanding. But the problem was the deliberate slow pace at which it is served. Three hours for six courses is too long. The Peat Inn system of breakfasts is unusual. No breakast room, and no hot food . Instead ,residents nominate a time at which an undoubtedly good continental breakfast is brought to ones room. We would have preferred the option of going over to a breakfast room and having the usual full range of breakfast foods available. ' - Anthony Bradbury - June, 2016
'We were given a warm welcome. The rooms are very special, overlooking the beautifully tended garden. The huge double bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was well equipped and attractive, apart from no grab rails in the bath. The restaurant has a lovely reception lounge, with a blazing log fire and comfy seats. We couldn’t fault the food, and the service was impeccable. Although the restaurant was busy, it has an unhurried feel. There is no piped music. Breakfast the next day was served in our room by two lovely cheerful ladies. It was a perfect amount for the morning after a big meal. Not cheap but very luxurious! ' - Jackie and Hugh Tunstall-Pedoe - January, 2016
'Refurbished this year, a very comfortable base for touring the small coastal villages nearby, and St Andrews. Excellent and very professional cooking and service, and a good breakfast provided in your own sitting room. ' - Colin Adams - June, 2015
