We chose Clovelly House based on the Tripadvisor reviews.
The excellent reviews were certainly not wrong! The location is central and upon arrival we were greeted by Vivienne and Rocky, who gave us a parking badge which entitled to us free car parking in and around Berwick - this proved handy for when we visited the surrounding areas.
Our room was very homely and cosy. The bed was firm, duvet thick and we had additional blankets if required together with a hot water bottle :) We were given a complimentary bottle of bubbly (for my husband's birthday!), box of chocs, lots of tea, coffee, biscuits, kit kats, fresh fruit, box of dates, mini bottles of wine and water! If this were not enough, there was also a communal fridge containing fresh milk, cans of lager and more wine! This is in addition to the microwave, board games, DVDs and videos.
Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries are provided along with a hairdryer, big fluffy robes, towels and slippers. Phew, you get the picture!
Breakfasts were huge and I mean H-U-G-E. It's a 3 courser. Fresh fruit, cereal, porridge or pancakes to begin with, followed by croissants and then various variations of a hot fry up. Let me warn you that a "standard" fry up consists of 4 slices of bacon, 2 eggs, 1 large cumberland shaped sausage (although it is not a cumberland sausage), 2 slices of toast, tomatoes, mushrooms and a large bowl of sauteed meditteranean veg. If, like me, you can't stand wasting food, I would go for a half portion of this and that is plenty. They have a large breakfast and I dread to think what that contains!
Vivienne and Rocky cannot help you enough, they have lots of leaflets, recommendations of where to go and eat and hot tips.
If I had to be super, super critical, the room was probably a bit on the small side and the flat screen TV reception wasnt the best - we could only watch BBC.
I cannot recommend this place enough and was very sad to leave.
