Good Hotel Guide Review

The prices might look ‘eye-watering’ at Toby Ashworth’s family-friendly, dog-loving Edwardian hotel in a fantastic position above Carne beach, but they are ‘great value for this level of luxury’. ‘Breathtaking views of the wonderful beach’ can be seen from many rooms, with a balcony or terrace. Extras include fresh flowers, posh toiletries, ‘a generous bowl of fruit, a small decanter of sherry’, valet, shoe cleaning and 24-hour room service. ‘The design is traditional country house,’ writes a Guide stalwart, ‘but with many modern twists, outstanding soft furnishings and well-cared-for antiques.’ A complimentary cream tea is offered, and the under-sevens can have an early supper. In the dining room, with hors d’oeuvre trolley and tableside flame grilling, a typical dish might feature smoked haddock, poached egg, cauliflower tempura, wilted spinach, Bombay potatoes. ‘The staff are delightful, very polite and wholly obliging,’ writes a reader whose complaint about a steak was handled with real grace. Breakfast brings ‘delicious kedgeree, an amazing full English’. (Abigail Kirby-Harris, Ian White)
