Good Hotel Guide Review
We have readers who have been returning for more than 20 years to the Wild family’s traditional hotel ‘in a picturesque village’ once known for oyster fishing. It began life as three 17th-century workmen’s cottages bordered by a stream, subsuming more over time, to become the seamless operation of today. The pretty, light-washed bedrooms are ‘comfortable and well furnished‘; all have a coffee machine, biscuits, paraben-free toiletries, fresh milk in an ‘all-important silent fridge’. The best have a seating area, bathroom with freestanding bath and separate shower, French doors to a south-facing private garden. However, one guest disliked his room in the modern extension. Monochrome photographs of local beauty spots are displayed throughout the hotel. In the elegant restaurant, chef Neil Hiskey’s contemporary British dishes include guineafowl breast, boudin blanc, hispi cabbage, tarragon croquettes. You can eat more simple fare in the brasserie, maybe tempura cod, Thai green curry, honey-roast ham. Morning brings a decent buffet, ‘a good choice of hot breakfasts, cooked to order’. ‘A craft centre, coffee shop, pub, church and quay are a short walk away.’ (Ian Marshall, JB)
