Good Hotel Guide Review
We can’t say whether King Arthur stabled Llamrei in the equestrian centre next door, but the once and future king lives on in this small hotel near Tintagel, named after Uther Pendragon. ‘Owners Sharon and Nigel Reed have “excellent hospitality skills”,’ report our inspectors in 2019. The former Victorian rectory is ‘furnished with good taste’. Lounges have roaring fires, leather sofas, paintings, antiques, a well-stocked honesty bar. A suit of armour guards the hall. Bedivere room, with four-poster, was ‘VERY comfortable’, with sherry, ‘high-quality teas, a proper teapot, milk from a little fridge on the landing, super home-made biscuits’, local toiletries. The ‘huge bathroom’ had a cast iron roll-top bath. Other ‘cosy’ rooms have a shower. In the conservatory dining room (no round table, sadly), guests can enjoy a home-cooked dinner. ‘Ham hock terrine, chutney, lovely salad garnishes; sea bass with five different home-grown vegetables; a fabulous chocolate confection’ were ‘superb’. A ‘scrumptious’ breakfast has home-baked bread, a continental buffet, Pendragon rarebit, Cornish kipper, free-range eggs. ‘No lunch needed here!’ (Saskia Nolet, John and Jerelyn Walters, and others)
