Taken to restaurant as a surprise. Had the 17 course taster menu which was amazing! Every course was fantastic to look at and fantastic to taste. Service was second to none. Never an empty glass or crumb left on the table. Will definitely go back.

I don't think that a double bed should be made up of two singles - it's uncomfortable in the middle. Also there was nowhere with good lighting to do my makeup. The bathroom shelf was too small to hold my makeup and the table in the bedroom, whilst big enough, was sloped and very poorly lit. The room was quiet...

The room was spacious with a very comfortable bed. Proper tea and coffee making facilities including a proper coffee machine. The bathroom was lovely and the rain shower worked perfectly. The room was exceptionally clean. We managed to park close to the hotel although we had to wait until after 5 when the nearby parking was easier. Breakfast was next...

We stayed here following a meal at the restaurant, our room was located in the village near Rogan and Co. It is about 5 minute walk from the restaurant. We arrived Saturday afternoon and we did struggle to find somewhere to park the car in the village. We had a friendly reception on arrival and our room was prepared. We...

Very nice rooms, well appointed, but hampered by the space available in the conversions of the old properties. Good service etc etc, but I wouldn't rave about it if it wasn't attached to L'Enclume restaurant.

Restaurant good, rooms less so. My wife and myself stayed in one of the rooms whilst also taking in the very good taster menu and wine flight at l'enclume. We arrived and were shown to our room but alas the escorter failed to explain the heating or indeed anything in the room. Later, when we got cold, we had to...

We stayed here for one night as part of the whole l'enclume experience. Full taster menu in l,enclume restaurant, overnight stay in a superior room and breakfast in rogan. I have already reviewed l'enclume restaurant, this review is for the room. We had a superior room in l'enclume house, it was decidedly average. A generous size, spotlessly clean but very...

I had read a few reviews of the hotel, with noise issues etc, however we have the most lovely room, totally wonky, felt like you were drunk walking round the bed, but beautiful room and small hotel, we loved it. Bathroom great too as was the shower. The breakfast next door in Rogans in the morning was just brilliant too....

This is a long winded review, so I apologise in advance. I would also like to point out that I have not actually either stayed nor eaten at L'Enclume, this review is based purely on my experience with this establishment prior to a stay, that in the end, never took place, due to my disappointment with the service. In August...
