We stayed with our 3 children (16, 13 and 12) at the Emily Moon over Christmas and had an amazing time. The rooms are very comfortable with amazing views over the river (we had a go at kayaking down it) and the hills in the distance. The hotel obviously has a reputation for its food - we were there for Christmas lunch and they had automatically booked us in, which was just fantastic as we had no idea where else we could go. Amazingly 150 guests from outside the hotel were going to join us! Breakfast and all the meals we had there were superb - we had a bit of a panic one night with a sudden insect infestation, but it was handled brilliantly and our meals were cooked once again without a fuss. I agree that what really makes this place stand out are the owners - Simon and Diane really made us feel part of their family in their own home. They were knowledgeable, helpful and extremely friendly, as indeed were all their wonderful staff. We cannot recommend Emily Moon highly enough and we will definitely be going back.
