We decided to spend it in Sidmouth, a place to which my late in laws retired in 1973.
The Hunter's Moon was where they stayed for 2 nights 40 years ago before moving into their new home & my husband remembered them praising it then.
We were not disappointed. It is a beautiful building with an interesting history, within its own grounds running alongside the River Sid. It is within walking distance of the main town.
We chose a downstairs bedroom with wet room as my husband has Parkinson's. He is still very mobile but would recommend for disabled guests as well. The beds were very comfortable and our chosen room number 16, which was very spacious had a little balcony overlooking the grounds and the private gate to the River Sid walkway.
It was only a one night stay but there was complimentary tea in the afternoon on arriving, an excellent evening meal with a choice of menus. The tables had crisp white linen. The waitress service was very efficient, no waiting between courses and afterwards coffee tea etc. was "help yourself" in the choice of 3 lounges.
The middle lounge by the front door was not carpeted and this was for guests who wished to bring their dog. That really is an extra plus point for this hotel.
Breakfast was also an excellent menu, with an amazing choice that would suit every guest.
Whilst most of us there in December were older guests, that suited us down to the ground, we wanted peace & quiet & we certainly got it.
I was glad they had WIFI, it was only in the lounge area however.
The staff were so friendly & the place was tastefully decorated for Christmas. We shall return.
