David and I thought we would finish our holiday fortnight with a visit to our favourite west country hotel (£225 a night b&b for a garden room). Not quite as welcoming as last time but ok. Different staff? We did not have dinner there as last time we thought it was overpriced. Breakfast was very good in the conservatory but my bacon was inedible(similar to what another reviewer said). We usually adjourned to the lovely big lounge to read the morning papers and enjoy the view. Weather wet Saturday so we went to Street to look for bargains and found them in Austin Reed and Yaeger. We used the Spa suite and enjoyed the sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. Foot spa was beyond us. Maid service was excellent with fresh towels etc twice a day as required and bed turned down . We will return.
