We have recently stayed at Cockliffe as a group of four friends. We have visited many country house hotels in the last 7 years and would say this would be rated in our top few. The rooms were clean comfortable and spacious and the hospitality tray, chocolates and cold bottled water were very welcome. The staff were polite and efficient without being obtrusive or pretentious.
The food at both the evening meal and breakfast were beautifully presented and of a high quality. Our friend had noticed on a sample menu that samphire was served and was disappointed that it was not on the menu for our evening meal. The waiter checked with the kitchen and said he would include it as part of the fish dish she ordered.
Nothing was too much trouble.
The owners and some staff ate in the restauant at night as it was quieter than usual a good example of the owners valuing the contribution of the staff.
One thing that was particularly pleasing was that this small hotel has remained as such, all too often we book a small hotel and when we arrive there is an extension of 30 rooms which does not feature in the portrayed image in the travel guide!
And to comment on the previous report about the pig farm there was a slight smell but nothing off putting and we were after all in the countryside.
Well done Cockliffe for making our stay special.
