“Visitor from Dublin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

We also had a very enjoyable overnight stay at Scholars on a Living Social deal. An absolute hidden gem. From the outset we were greeted with friendliness, efficient service and wonderful food. A lovely relaxing stay to be repeated at any opportunity.

Just stayed in scholars with a living social deal and will definately return for both restaurant and a hotel break. Service was just how it use to be before the boom. Genuine guys treating everyone with the same courteous manner throughout. Fab place. Fab service. Fab food. Don't change a thing!

This was our second visit for dinner. On a previous occasion a small problem was quickly and efficiently resolved by our waiter, who was it turned out, the manager.
On our recent visit I was actually settling the bill when I was spoken by the manager. He could address both my wife and myself by our first names (which we had mentioned on first trip). He enquired about our experience on this occasion; he remarked that I had been fair in my trip advisor review. Nice to do business with people like that.

Our room was monastery-style--with lovely stained glass gothic windows and wood paneling. The bed was excellent--firm and as big as the room could accommodate. Downstairs, the dining room (where we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast) ws elegant and bright with morning light, but it was the bar/pub where we ate dinner--cozy, with good food, nice lighting and comfortable seating. The people were very friendly and helpful. I can think of only one negative about Scholars: the walkway outside is slippery when it rains.

We went to this hotel through a deal on Living Social. A little hard to find, but that's mostly down to the south's lack of signage than anything else. On first going in, it's warm, cosy - homey. It's on the smaller side of hotel's, but that's all part of it's charm. The staff are friendly, and not the typical 'this is a hotel and we have to be friendly.' It's genuine. There's only 18 rooms and 2 floors. The rooms are small - but cosy, same with the bathroom. But it has all the essentials! And you won't be bumping into one another either!

The resturant has the typical type of food. Not a large vegeterian selection, for me I found it a let down, but my partner enjoyed their meal. So it's a taste thing more than anything.

We have just returned from a lovely stay at this superb hotel!! The staff were pleasant,courteous and extremley helpful from the very start - this makes a stay in a hotel so much more pleasant!!!!!!

The food was amazing and worthy of all the accolades and awards - we were blown away by the monkfish dish and the steak was second to none! The side dishes of potato gratin and chips went down a treat!!!! The dining room is really well decorated with plenty of history round the walls and we enjoyed the easy going atmosphere. We could tell the breakfast each morning was freshly cooked as it was served warm and very tasty! Loved the fact that the coffee was freshly made and not instant and that bottles of water were available for diners.

The rooms were slightly smaller than usual and we thought the price of wine was just a bit much but overall we loved this hotel! We would highly recommend it and look forward to returning soon.

Congratulations to the owner on a fabulous hotel!! Your staff both at front of house and behind the scenes are a credit to you!!

We look forward to returning soon!!
