Good Hotel Guide Review

‘A wonderful place,’ writes a trusted reader, of Julie Leivers and Damien Pease’s long-established hotel on the Devon/Cornwall border. ‘Superb location, spectacular views,’ add Guide regulars in 2018. Four bedrooms are in the main building – a Victorian mine captain’s house; others are in the original coach house and a purpose-built annexe. Ranging from traditional to contemporary, and from quite cosy to deluxe, all come with a minibar and fresh milk; most have a balcony, full-height window and glass door, with views over the lovely garden and the Tamar valley. ‘We had a very comfy room in the annexe, although with a tiny balcony.’ A dramatic outlook, too, from the dining room, where chef Ashley Wright’s locally sourced seasonal fare includes such ‘beautifully prepared and presented’ dishes as local lamb, morels, wild garlic, spring onion, heritage carrots. A dessert of lemon posset with strawberries hit the spot. However, other guests were ‘rather underwhelmed. The food looked beautiful but was much too fussy: mackerel and crab cancel each other out.’ A ‘great breakfast’ included a ‘big bowl of orange and grapefruit segments’. The staff serve with grace and charm. ‘We look forward to returning.’ (PA, and others)

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 - Jun, 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 - Sep, 2016
