Good Hotel Guide Review

‘A near-faultless stay.’ In a ‘great’ location – ‘so easily reached from the centre, yet so quiet’ – Laurence and Helen Beere’s ‘excellent’ hotel continues to please guests with its ‘personable, efficient’ staff, ‘delicious’ food and ‘generously sized’ rooms. (The ‘very good’ cocktails help, too.) Pick one of the neat, modern bedrooms: they vary in size, from compact club rooms to junior suites with a seating area and space for a child’s bed. Inspectors found a top-floor room ‘quite hot (a fan was provided)’, but they appreciated the ‘abundant’ storage space; the ‘bright, well-designed’ bathroom; the turn-down service. Take tea in the ‘charming’ garden; come evening, stay in for dinner: the Olive Tree restaurant, where chef Chris Cleghorn’s modern dishes are ‘presented with a great deal of care’, ‘rightly has a very good reputation locally’. ‘We had beautifully cooked turbot preceded by a tasty, frothy amuse-bouche; delicious, warm bread rolls.’ In the morning, skip the ‘unfortunate’ toast and go for a ‘very good’ kipper. ‘The valet parking is a boon.’ (Peter Jowitt, 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
