My husband and I have just returned from an overnight stay at Houndgate Townhouse and all I can say is WOW. It is the most amazing little boutique hotel. From the time we checked in to the time we left the experience was outstanding. We stayed in Room Two, this is the super deluxe super king room and yes it is as impressive as it sounds. A really nice four poster bed massive walk in rain shower and the biggest bath I have ever seen are all to be found in Room Two.
Houndgate has a really nice bar that provides a wide variety of drinks from beers to cocktails to wine to champagne. We sampled some of the cocktails and the gentleman (sorry didn't get his name) who made them for us certainly knew his stuff. My husband didn't see a cocktail he wanted from the menu (there are plenty to choose from he is just picky) so the bar tender was more than happy to make him one not on the menu.
We booked a table at the restaurant "eleven" and again we were not disappointed and were not left hungry! There was a lot to choose from and after recommendation by our waitress Chloe, we both ordered the braised beef cheek and it was so tasty!! Chloe was an excellent server and very conscientious.
I could go on and on about how good Houndgate Townhouse but you really need to go to see. Now we have found it we will be returning!!
Thank you for a wonderful stay!!
