Good Hotel Guide Review
On ‘one of the steepest, narrowest streets’ in a ‘town of sudden vistas’, just above the castle, this restaurant-with-rooms has been run by chef/patron Glyn Roberts and his wife, Jacqueline, since 1989. Guide inspectors were this year ‘warmly greeted’ by Mr Roberts, who carried their bags up to a bedroom with ‘comfort as well as charm’. There was fresh milk, ‘an imaginative hospitality tray’, all manner of teas, good biscuits. ‘The bed was large and comfortable; in the bathroom was everything we needed.’ Most rooms, in the 400-year-old main building and its next-door contemporary (a former inn), have a low ceiling, exposed beams. All have modern furnishings, some a view of sea or mountains. The food is the highlight, however; fortunately, the bar’s ‘intrusive background music’ was more muted in the restaurant. A regularly changing, locally sourced menu features such dishes as roasted rack of Welsh lamb with herb crust, rosemary and garlic mash, buttered carrots, red wine jus. A wild mushroom risotto, and sea bass with prawns, were ‘subtly delicious’. A breakfast of ‘home-mixed muesli and Manx kippers’ was equally ‘outstanding’. Be aware that check-out is by 10.30 am.
