This hotel is something of an enigma. It does not seem to know what it is trying to be. The original building is 18c but the refurbished interior is very modern, and the two do not seem to quite mix. Most of the hotel scores highly. The staff are friendly, the food is excellent and the view from the garden is superb. There is a new large gazebo with heating and lighting so it is possible to sit in the garden until late in the evening.
Because the hotel was full I had to take a 'four poster bedded room'. The room was dark and the one window looked out onto a thick leylandi hedge a few feet from the window. This was the only view. The fourposter consisted of four 2x2 poles sticking up in each corner of the bed and looked like "MFI under construction". For this I was charged extra which came to the same as the larger bright airy rooms with views over Lyme across the bay. The flat roof was an invitation for the seagulls to play football at 4.00 am.
Would I recommend the hotel? Yes I would but avoid room 5.
