Good Hotel Guide Review

‘A contented buzz’ fills this ‘sophisticated yet unpretentious’ restaurant-with-rooms in an ‘attractive’ sheep-grazed setting. Here, chef/patron Stephen Terry and his wife, Joanna, ‘extremely hands-on’ hosts, lead a team of ‘friendly, efficient’ staff. Guide inspectors in 2016 found leather sofas and vintage touches in the bar; in the ‘packed’ dining room, ‘smartly dressed staff kept things running smoothly’. ‘The long, interesting menu, and well-priced, well-chosen wine list, make decisions difficult. We enjoyed grilled Wye valley asparagus, buffalo mozzarella, broad beans; roast hake fillet, brown shrimps; perfect mashed potatoes.’ ‘Very good’ bedrooms are in a modern, Scandi-inspired courtyard extension. ‘Ours had a comfortable bed, crisp sheets, a Welsh tweed throw; ample storage; design books and magazines by the sofa. In the smart bathroom: good towels, a huge walk-in shower.’ At breakfast, ‘no need for tramping up to a buffet’. Sit down to ‘excellent’ freshly squeezed orange juice; ‘very good’ cafetière coffee; ‘super, buttery scrambled eggs on sourdough toast’. ‘Linen napkins were a bonus.’

Guest comments

'Our third visit. The room was fine, modern, well equipped, not very big but perfectly adequate and with the welcome addition of air conditioning since our last visit. Could have done with more storage space though. Nice bathroom. The food was excellent. Huge portions. So on the second night we had two starter portions . This left room for pudding, again, excellent. Staff were all good and it isn't expensive We will be back ' - Peter Anderson - August, 2017
