We needed accommodation for a couple of nights when we attended a family celebration in nearby Dobcross. Never been here before but knew we'd made the right choice as soon as we arrived. Staff were friendly, helpful and good at their jobs. We had Sunday lunch which was yummy (I had a half portion of lamb in order to have enough room for pudding and had the most delicious crème brulee ever) accompanying veges were fresh and perfectly cooked, hubby's beef was so tasty and tender too. Barstaff know their stuff and have a happy blend of friendliness and skill. Do try a gin or two! Our room was so pretty (16) with a charming brass & China bedstead, oodles of storage space and a very modern en suite. Comprehensive hospitality tray (small bottled water would have been perfection but local tap water is very good) we were on the front but the road has little traffic and looks out to trees, personally I like a road view anyway. The wall art was tasteful and subtle. Housekeeping full marks discreet but very efficient. Breakfast was lovely, I can be so fussy with fried eggs that are a tad undercooked etc but these were perfect, very tasty sausage, tomato, field mushrooms etc. Sorry I couldn't sample all the other cooked breakfast dishes too or the restaurants evening menu. Restaurant managed by the loveliest of ladies. I've worked in customer service and this hotel has certainly got it right. Thankyou for a wonderful stay.
