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

'After our journey along the bumpy road we were welcomed at the door by Lisa and Clinton who without hesitation took our cases up the rather steep stairs to our lovely room. We had a sea view, comfy beds, plenty of hot water. Pre-dinner drinks in the homely lounge. Good wine list but the highlights of our stay were Clinton's four course set dinners. Breakfasts were equally good. Lisa and her young staff were very attentive at meal times, and willing to discuss things of local interest. A perfect hotel for a relaxing get-away. ' - Peter Wainman - May, 2018
'We came for dinner. It is like a film set. Remote and beautiful. The food was exquisite; service was perfect. ' - Gillian Row - August, 2017
'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
