Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The amiable staff at this charming country hotel make you feel like a guest in a good friend’s house.’ Praise this year from contented visitors, after a return trip to Julie Leivers and Damien Pease’s ‘splendid’ 19th-century stone manor, where the views over the wooded Tamar valley are ‘spectacular’. The well-tended gardens are just the spot for an alfresco drink in good weather; when cool winds blow in, a fire is lit in the lounge. Most bedrooms are in the converted coach house, a minute’s walk from the main building. Some rooms tend to the traditional, while others are more contemporary, but ‘all are well equipped, stylish and very comfortable’. ‘Ours was faultless, with French windows looking over the valley.’ In the restaurant, new chef Ashley Wright’s modern dishes – ‘perfectly cooked scallops; best-ever venison’ – are ‘a delight’. Mealtimes feed the spirit, too: ‘The vista from the dining room enhances the good food experience.’ Fill up on a ‘good-quality breakfast’ of local produce before striking out for the day. ‘There are plenty of opportunities for walking and sightseeing’; Cotehele and the Garden House are easily reached. (Mr and Mrs R Bradley, Peter Anderson)

Guest comments

'What a superb location, with spectacular views from the dining room. We had a very comfy room in the new coach house, with a tiny balcony. But why do bathroom designers persist with these stupid taps so that the water comes out flat! Breakfasts were great. At dinner the food looked very beautiful, but had too many flavours vying for attention. ' - Mary Milne-Day - May, 2018
'Splendid. We had a "best room" on the first floor of the new building. Big modern bathroom with separate shower and plenty of storage. The food was good, a bit "nouvelle" for my taste but beautifully prepared. My only gripe is as before, very little in the way of vitamin C. Breakfast is better than before - they provided a big bowl of orange and grapefruit segments which at least reassured me that I would not develop scurvy during this stay!! However, this is a wonderful place, certainly in my top five. ' - Peter Anderson - June, 2017
'In this charming country house the rooms were comfortable, well equipped and stylish, and with spectacular views over the Tamar valley. The staff are friendly and helpful, but never intrusive. One almost feels like a guest in a good friend’s house. The views from the dining room enhances the good food experience. Each course was a delicious. Breakfast was of good quality, sourced from local suppliers, with a variety to satisfy everybody. ' - Mr & Mrs R Bradley - September, 2016
