Arts and crafts staircases and touches to the elegant and airy house sets it apart from the standard guest house. Fiona ( who owns this with her husband) is very professional and an experienced hotelier who sets herself and her staff high standards. This shows in the many little touches in each room, with good quality toileteries, bath robes, 'proper' hair dryers and irons, sherry and biscuits. Comfortable beds. Lovely guest living room and honesty bar with decent wines and spirits.
I would return t the drop of a hat... Partly to go back to Lyme Rigis but partly because Axminster itself has many hidden charms not least its Trinity House old fashioned department store with some great quality linens, the Whitty pizza bar and the Canteen.
The latter was good but needs additional quality assurance in the kitchen to make sure that the standard of taste and textures which can be excellent is maintained. ( see separate review).
Fiona and her team were friendly and clearly wanted us to have a good time. Go and enjoy!
