My wife & I stayed for a special birthday over two nights in the new cellar "suite", room No. 9. Its not really a suite and while superficially it was lovely closer inspection revealed there were obvious corners cut in its refurbishment (turned out that it was a DIY job done by the owner - not to be expected of somewhere charging £330+ a night). Individually the staff where great and friendly (Jonathan in particular) but communication between them could have been better. In my opinion all the extras were expensive (afternoon coffee, Spa treatments, lunch) and I considered them to represent poor value for money. However the Restaurant is where the Boath House almost fully redeemed itself - the food was simply outstanding and at £55 for a 5 course dinner of this standard, good value. The wine list was also good in both choice and price. Breakfast was good as well and was served in a private annex off the room - lovely concept and except for being a bit luke warm, very tasty. The Chef absolutely deserves every accolade he has won.
Overall my wife loved the place, we had a good time and that is what counted. However, we had little change from £900 for two nights DBB + a spa treatment and some extras which is a lot of cash and personally didn't think that the accommodation matched the price, although the setting and main property are stunning. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Restaurant but, because of the cost, could not recommend the Boath House as a place to stay. Find a nice local hotel or B&B (there are plenty in the area) and use the money saved to eat in the Restaurant more often!
