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)

Guest comments

'Our last visit to the above hotel was for New Year 5 years ago and we were delighted to find that the previous high standards had been exceeded. We were made to feel very welcome, and the accommodation was immaculate and very comfortable. Clinton's meals were perfection: delicious food, beautifully presented and served with care by Lisa and her staff. The attention to detail by Clinton and Lisa was superb. ' - - December, 2016
'Our stay left us feeling rather as if we should be writing them a thank-you letter, over and above settling the bill. It’s the only hotel we’ve ever stayed in where we didn’t feel the need to lock the door of our room. It was comfortable all over and pleasantly relaxed. The attention to detail was striking. It felt slightly luxurious, but never showy or oppressively so. The evening meals were as good as it gets. ' - Charles Medawar - November, 2016
'Sometimes it's all in the detail. Here it was like that. Looking out to sea and wondering what that was on the horizon, and finding a pair of field glasses at hand; the lamb at dinner, delicious in itself, with athat bed of red cabbage underneath caught the attention with its slow-cooked symphony of flavours; the care with which the house wines had been chosen; the mushroom on my breakfast plate, perfectly seasoned, perfectly grilled; my wife's bowl of porridge and boiled egg with soldiers, beautifully but unpretentiously presented. Chairs, books and artefacts made us feel at home. The word that seems to sum it up is love, the love of their craft of two professional and friendly hosts. ' - Matthew Caminer - May, 2013
