I continue to regularly visit Northcote on business, and with my family. The hotel has just finished a refurbishment of its bedrooms, and they are really fantastic. Great bathroom, spacious, well appointed, great TV's, and still the old staff attitude of "can't do enough to help". I arrived late, at 10.45pm, having rung ahead to arrange sandwiches. I was greeted by the maitre d' who said that chef was still cooking, and would I prefer a fillet steak sandwich and chips, cooked by a Michelin chef! It was brilliant, and this shows the attitude and charm of the staff.
Breakfast the next morning was spot on, cooked to order and well delivered.
I have recently been to Gravetye Manor, in Sussex, which charges several times more than Northcote for a less well equipped room and in my view substandard food both at dinner and breakfast.
Northcote is a really welcoming hotel, and now it has finished the bedroom refurb it is extra special. I would recommend it to anybody wanting a real hotel with staff that care, and who deliver an excellent service.
The two gastro pubs owned by the Northcote proprietors, the Three Fishes and the Highwayman, are also top notch and deserve a visit.
