Good Hotel Guide Review

A Regency cottage-orné, built by Jeffry Wyatville as a fishing lodge for Georgiana, Duchess of Bedford, is run today in characteristic relaxed-chic style by Olga Polizzi (see also Tresanton, St Mawes). ‘Staff are helpful and attentive, without being overbearing or unctuous – you’re encouraged to feel like a house guest.’ A mile-long drive bisects an Arcadia designed by Humphry Repton, with dells, streams, cascades and follies, the Tamar flowing through. The ambience is ‘unpretentious, wholly enjoyable’, say readers; it ‘feeds the historical imagination’. Main-house bedrooms have their own personality, new and vintage furniture. Some have hand-painted wallpaper, perhaps a fireplace, a freestanding bath. Two stable suites have a wood-burning stove, pantry, timber floors. In the restaurant, chef Jose Graziosi uses seasonal produce, locally farmed or foraged, in modern British dishes with an Italian accent. For example: corn-fed chicken, dauphinoise potatoes, Jerusalem artichoke purée, kale, Chantenay carrots; wild mushroom risotto, watercress, pecorino. Breakfast brings freshly squeezed juices, home-made granola, grilled kipper, a full English. (A and HB)

Guest comments

'The most striking feature of our stay was the professionalism of the staff. Whoever trains them should write a handbook to be distributed to every hotel in the land. You are encouraged to feel like a house guest rather than a hotel client. ' - Andrew and Hannah Butterworth - January, 2017
'A lovely, unpretentious and comfortable luxury hotel, decorated with charm appropriate to the old building. Difficult to describe in a few words the beauty of the estate with its flowery parterre, huge herbaceous border, tall, ancient trees, streams and waterfalls, constant sound of running water, and wide meander of the Tamar. Lots of lovely walks. Lots of nice sitting areas inside and out. No Muzak anywhere which was wonderful. Our room was charmingly done. Neat little bathroom; plumbing that does not need a degree to operate. The panelled dining room must be much as it was when the house was built. Food was good if not exceptional, in the modern manner. Not cheap at £40, but we were charged only £30 as we’d only taken two courses. At breakfast an excellent buffet, chunky brown toast, leaf tea. Service always helpful, friendly but never over attentive. No fuss. No obsequiousness. No chits to sign. A glorious placae. ' - C E - August, 2013
'High quality of peace and comfort. Lovely from the moment you arrive. Fantastic staff, always at hand. Atmosphere of attention and car. Beautiful gardens tumbling down to the river. ' - Ruth West - July, 2012
