My husband and I booked two nights for Valentine weekend in Milford on Sea. The hosts Amanda and Rob were lovely and keen to answer any of the questions we had.
Our room was the garden room with double doors to the patio and views of the garden, a seating area with sofa and next to it a little table with table lamp, and on the other side of the room a table with tea/coffee (organic and herbal), biscuits, chocolate mints and a carafe of sherry. Also large wardrobes with plenty of hangers. The double bed was very comfortable and had two bedside tables with lamps above each and if you got chilly there was a spare blanket in the wardrobe.
The bathroom was huge - a little strange in shape and only separated from the bedroom by a small arch and a curtain (so turn on the TV or the bedside clock radio of you want privacy!). It had a large shower, large double bath, WC and a single basin. Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries were provided. The room was very quiet.
Breakfast was served from 8.30-9.30am in the conservatory and it is all cooked fresh to order. The smoked haddock is wonderful and the scrambled great. Papers were available in the conservatory. You could help yourself to fruit juice (orange and/or grapefruit), cereals, fresh fruit salad as well as stewed fruits (apricots, prunes, apples). There was also a choice of jams and honey and some seeds for those who really want a very healthy breakfast. Toast was also provided.
In the entrance hall, there was a table with plenty of information about the local area and you are only 5 minutes away from the sea (very large pebbles on the beach). I would thoroughly recommend it.
