We recently (19th July) had our wedding reception at the Rosely Country House Hotel, Friday - Sunday. We decided it was the perfect place, groom (me) has been going there over past 13-14 yrs following a friend's wedding, not because it's perfect but because it's like no other hotel you will find. It's beautiful & charming much like the family who own & run it. It is absolutely stunning & fantastic value. Carola & her 4 generations of family maintain the building in all of it's grandeur, how it surely was intended when built late 19th century, stunning & solid. This is an incredibly special place. Should it ever change, or the intentions of the close family who run it shall be a travesty. To explain what it's like to people who have never been, wedding guests, is quite difficult. If you're inviting folk who expect symmetrical rooms full of ikea furniture then don't. You should send those folk to the nearest travel lodge, and I do hope that's where the aggrieved hotel inspector (further down the page review: "this is not a hotel") should always stay forever more. If you appreciate original fine qualities in life such as individuality, beauty, warmth, space & peace then you must go to the Rosely. We got married on the earth / sand & went back to celebrate at the Rosely & it was glorious. We had 100 guests or more, The Family we're accommodating of each and every one of them. We had a wholesome sumptuous feast prepared by Carola & family, every single guest loved the food, the party, appreciated their ethos & kindness, how they treated & trusted us. We love the Carola family, & their values, & we can all learn something from them. To enjoy life, and work to enjoy family life. The hotel is marketed as exactly what it is... A unique period family run hotel, 2 star but should be 4, set in gorgeous grounds which are a retreat from the chaos of how the world now turns. You'll get no special treatment but you'll still be a guest made to feel at home, nae'bd'y is treated any different. You can have anything you ask for (within reason) but should maybe think about how you ask for it. If you want a cup of tea just ask fir a jug ae milk!
