Good Hotel Guide Review

The city centre is an easy walk from Helen and Laurence Beere’s ‘near-faultless’ hotel, in an ‘unsurpassed situation’ within reach of museums, shops and heritage spots. Spread across four freshly refurbished Georgian town houses on a quiet residential street, the hotel strikes a light-hearted note – there are Union flag cushions on velvet club chairs in the bar, and quirky prints in the restaurant. The staff are ‘happy and helpful’; the modern bedrooms ‘nicely proportioned and well equipped’; the cocktails ‘very good indeed’. ‘And the valet parking is a boon.’ Accommodation ranges from club rooms ideal for solo travellers to a junior suite with an enormous four-poster bed, and a chaise longue in the spacious bathroom. There’s no tea tray in the room, but hot drinks are served in the ‘comfy drawing room’ throughout the day. On a sunny afternoon, choose to sit in the ‘charming courtyard garden’ instead. In the basement restaurant, chef Chris Cleghorn’s keenly modern tasting menus might include torched and confit trout, avocado, pink grapefruit; barbecued lamb cutlet, peas, morels, ewe’s cheese. ‘The cooking rightly has a very good reputation among locals.’ (PJ, and others)

Guest comments

'An excellent hotel. We booked directly with them, so had 50% off car parking and 10% off food. Our room (room 9) on the first floor was in very good decorative order, soft classical music playing, and very good bathroom. Public areas are comfy, with complementary tea/coffer in the front lounge. We had the tasting menu in the Olive Tree restaurant along with matching wines for just under £100 (after the 10% reduction on food) which we thought excellent value. ' - Donald Reid - August, 2805
'A near faultless stay. The Georgian proportions produced a room and bathroom of generous size. The plumber who installed the hot taps on the hand basins in the bathroom had a sense of humour – they turn on clockwise! The cocktail bar really is a cocktail bar – with a personable and knowledgeable barman. The Olive Tree rightly has a very good reputation locally. The food is delicious, a great deal of care is given to the presentation. Service is attentive without being intrusive. Those with limited mobility need to be aware that descent to the lower level involves a certain amount of mountaineering. The valet parking system works well. ' - Peter Jowitt - November, 2015
