Good Hotel Guide Review
Across from The Stray’s 200 acres of open parkland, this alluring town-centre hotel is in a seamlessly converted Victorian coach house. Nathan George manages for Provenance Inns & Hotels. Chef Pawel Cekala’s seasonal menus of fresh fish and seafood, sharing platters and grills are served in the buzzy brasserie (zinc-topped bar, sea-green leather banquettes, designer lighting); in clement weather, the courtyard opens for alfresco dining. Well-appointed bedrooms (quieter ones at the back) have a large bed, a coffee machine and tasty nibbles; in the bathrooms, spoiling toiletries, under-floor heating and speakers. Two penthouse duplexes have room to stretch out, plus a lounge and dining area, and access to a roof terrace.
