On arrival at Boath House we were warmly welcomed into what has been transformed into a truly lovely house allowing you to totally relax. Boath House is an ideal couples destination with roaring fires and candles lit throughout the public rooms and into the dining room, all creating a very lovely atmosphere.
Room 8, in the Orangerie, was stunning with one of the best bathrooms we've seen, complete with a huge assortment of Molton Brown toiletries and fantastic big fluffy towels. The bed was extremely comfortable with high end bedding and pillows resulting in a brilliant sleep. Delighted to find fresh milk in a flask for our tea & coffee but felt they were a tad mean only giving us one packet of (2) small biscuits.
The Dining Room offers Fine Dining, which was presented by very friendly staff. Only a couple of gripes here - it's a small dining room and all tables, except ours, were offered soda bread .... profuse apologises when we asked for some, and then after dinner when our coffee arrived there were no Petit Fours, which the couple opposite were enjoying with their coffee...we didn't dare ask as it was the same person who'd forgotten the bread!!
Boath House do ask if you have any requests regarding food and so I emailed to say that we didn't eat what we call "functioning parts of the body" and I don't eat egg so really was very disappointed when I read the breakfast menu which had egg on every suggestion. As I'm not keen on fish at breakfast I asked if it was possible to have sausage and bacon but was told there were no sausages and was offered black pudding...made from the above, I declined, and hoped Chef would surprise me with something other than what I got - several pieces of bacon formed into a pyramid in the centre of a plate.
While the bacon was excellent I do feel that when you're paying £450 for DBB that if guests make a request for something other than what's listed (especially when they've been told weeks in advance, at time of booking) they should be able to get it rather than what Chef thinks they should be eating. I love a traditional breakfast and do feel let down by what I had at Boath House. Surely if they didn't have any sausages there could have been more effort put into what I was served - such as a latke/rosti or even a round of toast under the bacon.
