We stayed in the Garden Room for 3 nights whilst visiting relatives. It was a smallish room with separate toilet and shower but large enough for us, and had everything you might need. Jan, the owner, was lovely and incredibly thoughtful. We were tired when we arrived and she offered us crockery and cutlery so that we could get cosy and have a takeaway. She then came to take away the rubbish and cutlery so that our room didn't smell of Indian food! We had opened a bottle of wine and were happy to use the glasses on the bedside table but Jan noticed the wine and provided us with wineglasses the following day. Free Wi Fi was useful, but a little temperamental whilst we were there. And so to breakfast!!! Wow!!! Lovely fresh fruit salad followed by one of the best full English brekkies I've every had the pleasure to get outside of, and all delivered to your room with a smile. I hardly every eat sausages but had two each morning whilst I was there and they were perfectly delicious, as was the bacon with all the trimmings. My husband and I didn't need any lunch for three days. We did say that we probably ought to have gone for the lighter option on the third day but we just couldn't resist the works I'm afraid!
The bed was comfy and linen crisp and clean.
All in all, it is clear that Jan tries very hard to make the Chequers a 'home from home' and it certainly works. Thanks - we'll be back!! Oh, just remembered, we forgot to fill in the visitors book - sorry Jan, we'll do it next time!
