Good Hotel Guide Review
Tim and Anne Riley’s small hotel stands serenely on a steep hillside on the edge of a village where the Exmoor national park meets the sea. Guide regulars arriving in 2018 ‘were warmly welcomed by Anne with tea and cake’. The Edwardian house is traditional and domestic, ‘not in the least old-fashioned or faded’. Everywhere something catches the eye – statuary, a ginger jar collection, gently chiming clocks. An ‘impressive’ wine list’ accompanies Anne Riley’s ‘generally excellent’ home cooking, alongside ‘highly professional service’ and ‘breathtaking views’ – ‘the changing light over the village is magical’. Dinner might include rose veal in cream mushroom sauce; a ‘perfectly judged’ pudding. The ‘beautiful Melba toast and baked rolls’ were particularly appreciated. Bedrooms are ‘spacious’ and airy; ‘our bed was soft but comfortable’. Other readers lauded the ‘large fluffy towels on a piping-hot bathroom rail’. Many rooms enjoy the same view as the restaurant; each has a mini-clock, a radio, ground coffee. Breakfast brings ‘freshly squeezed orange juice, excellent porridge, good cafetière coffee and toasted home-made bread’. (Mike and Jill Bennett, and others).
