Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Very enjoyable; a place for relaxing weekends and special occasions,’ say Guide inspectors of the ‘beautifully proportioned Queen Anne mansion in spacious grounds’. The Elms, under the new ownership of Tim Hopkins, has a ‘wow factor entrance: an impressive hall with large case clock, warming fire and grand staircase; at the top a stunning stained glass half-dome’. Happily it’s style with substance and ‘young, friendly staff on top of things’. Our ‘five-star’ arrival included ‘a chatty receptionist greeting, luggage carried upstairs’ and George the cat; ‘très soigné, he wanders the corridors checking on the cleaners’. The ‘vast’ room, Apricot, had ‘solid, old brown furniture, two pink armchairs and good bedside lamps’ and ‘a big outlook over the croquet lawn’; the bathroom had an over-bath shower and ‘plenty of space for toiletries’. There’s a ‘superb’ bar – ‘rather clubby with open fire, old books and interesting objects’ – while chef John Brandon’s ‘inventive, temptingly presented’ dinner included Iberico pork, apple and parsnips with cabbage and bacon. The ‘enjoyable breakfast had a huge variety of cooked choices with kippers, vegetarian, carb-free and detox dishes’.
