Stayed for one night recently and definitely intend to return. Even though Spicers are growing their business, their is nothing production 'chain' about their properties, apart from quiet, consistent, excellence.
The rooms are lovely, quality throughout including the bath/shower mats, best yet! Nice thick and fluffy. Bed was dreamy, no expense spared. LOVED the on tap cold water and boiling water. There is no fridge, however, I didn't miss it at all, and there is one immediately outside the room.
Dinner was spot on, the Sous Chef did a wonderful job of the scallops they were perfectly cooked, salad delightfully fresh, and dressed. Maria and Kirsten did a great job of entertaining me as I was dining on my own, both passionate about customer service. Alex was quick witted, engaging, and totally dedicated to making sure my stay was nothing less than perfect, nothing seemed too much trouble.
This boutique hotel has a feel for me of my home away from home. I felt thoroughly comfortable and relaxed, there was no snobbish haughtiness, yet had flair, style, and class.
Most definitely recommended.
