A very pleasant 2 night stop en route back home from Devon, this boutique hotel is located on the edge of a small, pretty village (a few houses and a church) in an idyllically quiet spot, with no noise or traffic. Sadly the weather didn't allow us to enjoy the outside.
Family-run with the backing of the Best Western name, it is a friendly, homely setting and clearly a popular venue with a good reputation for its restaurant.
Very pleasant room, good-sized, overlooking the garden with en-suite. Very clean with fresh linen and towels, tea and coffee provision, tv and sofa.
Breakfast and dinner was comprehensive with good range of choice, beautifully prepared, cooked and presented. Service was excellent, ambience and surroundings were quietly enjoyable with limited hard surfaces and no background music - a particular issue I often have with restaurants.
Sometimes being incommunicado is attractive but one significant shortcoming of the location is the poor connectivity in the area both broadband and phone signal - ( I understand they are hopeful that improvements will soon be forthcoming ) - I hate it but one cannot ignore the role it plays in our lives now. Wi-fi in the hotel is there but slow and limited.
Quite expensive but very worthwhile for the quality of stay and the peacefulness. Would certainly recommend it. less
