We stayed at Haldon Priors in June 2014 for three nights. Ping was very helpful when booking and upon arrival she made us feel welcome. I wanted to stay somewhere with a bit more class so I chose Haldon Priors based on photos and reviews I had read. The price that bit higher but I think it is worth paying that bit more for a nicer setting. The accommodation itself is lovely, very lovely entrance. We stayed in the sea view room over looking the pool which was lovely. The room is really big, it is old fashioned but also lovely. There is a TV in the room. The bed is comfortable. The shower annoyed me slightly. I really like a powerful shower and I couldn't get the temperature right. There is a clean bath in the bathroom too. We ran out of toilet paper and Ping provided a new roll straight away all we had to do was ask.
The breakfast was lovely and the breakfast room is relaxing. I went for poached eggs on toast which were cooked to perfection. Couples in there were chatty. Not keen on the quality of the coffee. I am a coffee snob though. The outside pool lovely. We had to ask Ping for the pool room to be opened. I would rather be able to walk straight in but maybe this is done because of health and safety. The water was too cold to get into the outdoor pool unfortunately. It would have been helpful to know that we could have used the fridge for cold drinks and snacks when sat by the pool. I was told on the last day there is a fridge. Ping is so lovely and really accommodating. I would definitely recommend Haldon Priors and I would go back for sure! I am really very fussy about where I stay when it comes to hotels etc but this suits my standards. Thank you Ping!
