Our family of 4 stayed in the new-looking self-catering apartments May 2014. The 2-bed apartment is in a block of 3-4 at the end of the main house, so separate from everyone else. No. 7 on first floor has;
- lovely [well kitted-out] kitchen / diner / lounge with balcony (inc breakfast table / chairs) overlooking rear gardens
- twin bedroom with small single beds & wardrobe
- bathroom with WC, bath & good shower
- utility closet wi boiler, iron & ironing board, vacuum cleaner
- main bedroom with double, large wardrobe, small sofa

You could happily live in this apartment, it's got everything you need and everything is very new & in great condition.

If I was being very picky the only thing I could possibly criticise is that one set of curtains in the lounge don't work properly, but that's just splitting hairs; it's a lovely place to stay and Phill, the proprietor, was very helpful via email. I'd happily take my family there again.

Room Tip: Apartment #7 has the balcony.

Nice hotel, clean, simple, great breakfast. Overall great value as went for single room without en-suite. Including breakfast and free wi-fi it was fine. Location is very handy for walking into town, and there's loads of easy access parking.

Room Tip: One tip for room 14 is don't leave the window open when it's raining as the drip drip will k...

Only had a one night stay for my husbands special birthday on the 17th May 2014 at Blorenge House in the Honeymoon Suite, but it was a shame it wasn't longer. I certainly recommend staying here, our room was very clean, tidy, lovely decor and spacious. The staff were very friendly and for breakfast you had a choice of toast and jam, various cereals, yogurts, fresh fruit and full English. Vegetarian option was also available. I had the full English but I did hear someone ask or poached eggs on toast with beans which was done with no problems at all. I will certainly recommend Blorenge House in future :)

This is a lovely hotel with character, my room was large, and very clean, the bed was comfy and the room quiet, essential for a busy days work ahead. Free wifi compliments the stay. Very good breakfast, ample parking and easy walking distance into town. It had everything I needed for a successful trip.

A group of 4 of us stayed for a week - a four poster room and a twin room (1 single & 1 double bed).
Both rooms were a good size with en-suite facilities. Good breakfast.The staff were freindly and helpful. It's a lovely building in a convenient, quiet location. Easy walking distance of buses, train station and town centre; there are restaurants nearby. )

OMG! Get shown to my room to discover a four-poster bed!

The room was neat and tidy; gallons of hot water in the wash basin and the shower. The bed was quite comfortable into the bargain.

I asked for a cooked breakfast before the official time; this was offered without any hint of "oh! All right then" When it became difficult to get a taxi the owner just offered to drive me to the venue without any hesitation.

Good situation within easy walking distance of the station (provided you don't have a suitcase to lug) and excellent hosts.

Having been flooded out of our house, we were in need of sanctuary. Blorenge House provided this and more. Our room, with its lovely 4-poster bed, was warm, clean and very comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful and made us feel not only welcome but also like royalty. We were spoiled with a very tasty full English breakfast. As Blorenge House was our temporary home, the elegant, spacious guest lounge provided a change of scenery. The House is located only a few minutes walk from the town centre, and the bus and railway stations. There are also plenty of restaurants and takeaways nearby. Blorenge House may be an old property but it has lots of charm and character and is well maintained.
