Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Comfortable all over and pleasantly relaxed’, Clinton and Lisa Lovell’s small hotel continues to win rave reviews from guests, who say ‘it’s like staying with good friends’. ‘We were made to feel as if we were being welcomed into the family home,’ say returning guests this year. More praise: ‘The owners were friendly but discreet, looking after us well but allowing us privacy at the same time.’ The 1920s mansion, across a quiet road from the coastline, has homey, restful bedrooms, each ‘immaculate’. ‘And the attention to detail is striking, down to the binoculars provided in a thick leather case on the window sill of our sea-view room.’ The ‘stunning’ surroundings beg to be explored: ‘We set out on our bikes along the six-mile sea wall, cycling into the wind, then sailed home.’ Return to the host’s ‘beautifully presented’ four-course set menu, ‘served with care by Lisa and her staff’. ‘Our evening meals were as good as it gets, including the best cheeseboard we’d ever seen.’ ‘We left feeling as if we should write them a thank-you letter.’ (Charles Medawar, and others)
