Good Hotel Guide Review

‘An ideal B&B’, Daisy and Clive Hayley are new owners of this Georgian manor house, much made over in Victorian times. It is approached via a tree-lined drive through large grounds. ‘It’s definitely a place for people who like to chat and get to know their hosts,’ say Guide inspectors in 2017. The house stands in large grounds, overlooking a lake with an island folly built on the ruins of medieval Starborough Castle; there are ‘lovely views over the peaceful setting’ from the ‘fine, spacious’ drawing room. Bedrooms, each different, are ‘elegant and tasteful’. ‘Our enormous bed had the most comfortable, deep duvet; soft towels and indulgent bath products in the bathroom. Our hosts provided us with crockery, cutlery and glasses to eat our picnic supper.’ At breakfast ‘a delicious array’ of fruits, cereals, yogurts and jams. Historic Hever Castle and the National Trust’s Standen House and garden are within a 20-minute drive.

'A place for people to stay who like to chat and to get to know their hosts. We were upgraded to the Honeymoon Suite which had every comfort. Our hosts provided us with crockery, cutlery and glasses to eat our picnic supper. Breakfast, in their lovely large kitchen at a long table, was a delicious array of fresh fruits, cereals, etc, and a very good cooked breakfast ' - AW - January, 2017
'The Matthiases have spent a great deal of money improving the place which they bought sixteen years ago in a state of decrepitude. The result is impressive. All is immaculate and well lit., tasteful and pleasant. Bedrooms are simply but adequately furnished. Lynn Matthias welcomed us with tea and scones warm from her Aga; Jonathan Matthias at breakfast chatted to us as we partook of the generous buffet, while Lynn cooked the hot dishes.. In summer, breakfast can be taken outdoors in their walled courtyard. Two stately rooms are available for weddings, retreats or seminars. ' - F W - March, 2015
'Beautiful house in attractive grounds and countryside. The Mathias family are excellent hosts, combining professionalism with warmth. Large bedroom with good bed and lighting. Huge bathroom. Big bonus, kitchen and laundry room for guest use, both well equipped. Delightful sitting room. ' - Victoria Maltby - August, 2012
