I am well overdue here as we stayed in December 2011 (and over New Year) but trust me if you are ever staying in this area then this is THE place to stay.
Mary and her wonderful Inn are exceptional and you are treated to utter blissful hospitality during your stay. I have never stayed anywhere quite like it, and having stayed at many hotels and b+b’s, I can safely say that this is one of the very best. The food was to die for, I was literally throwing myself out of bed in the mornings so excited to see what culinary delights lay in store for us that day. On one day Mary allowed some family who lived near by to join us for breakfast - so thoughtful.
I loved the personal touches in every room, not just our bedroom (the Mariner), but the tea room and the library. Everything has been chosen so tastefully and thoughtfully, everything put in it’s place with an idea in mind. Everywhere you turned there was something else to look at, another book to read, another picture to gaze at. I think it’s great that there are no tv’s in the room as it makes you appreciate what is around you in the room more, while the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in (I believe the matresses are tempur) - even better than my own at home.
And of course we were so well looked after. Nothing was too much trouble and we really felt so well cared for. I had an upset tummy during my stay and Mary went out of her way to fine me ginger ale and tea to try and help.
If you know what's good for you, and are looking for rest and good food with a friendly atmosphere then this is the place for you. I can't wait to return.
