We had been looking for a place for my parents to spend a couple of days for a holiday before my father had to go into hospital for knee surgery, and were slowly losing hope of trying somewhere new. By complete luck, I looked at the KGBdeals website and saw an offer for two nights for two plus breakfast both days and a three course dinner at the Grapes and jumped at it. Not really knowing what to expect, since they had never been to the area, we finally found out a few dates we could spare and rang up the hotel, who were able to fit us in precisely within the dates we needed. When they came back, my parents, who aren't remotely computer-savvy and who aren't fans of the net by any means, requested within half an hour that I make sure to post a review for them on TripAdvisor, so what follows is from them:
Our hosts at the hotel, Peter and Gayle (not sure of the spelling) were extremely thoughtful and could not do enough for us. The bartender, Adam, was kind enough to suggest jugs of iced water with lemon when we were unable to accept an alcoholic drink, which was a lovely refreshing drink, and our waitress Heather was always ready with a smile. All in all, the staff alone would have made this holiday one to remember. We've traveled throughout North America and Europe in our younger days, but we have never had finer food than we had at the restaurant during our stay, both in quality and quantity. Our deepest thanks to all for a wonderful holiday!
While exploring the town, we came upon T Eliot's butcher, who should be congratulated on the quality of their produce. We brought home some meat with us and found the brisket to be the best we've had (not to mention the sausages!). Definitely worth a visit if you have a way to take some home with you!
