The recurring theme of the reviews of the Old Rectory is the hospitality of the owners, Huw and Sam, and for good reason. It really is like being welcomed into the home of friends you have known forever – they could not be more welcoming, charming or helpful and they make each and every guest feel special. The net effect is a wonderful atmosphere – where friendships are formed – not just with the hosts but between guests too, helped by the single sitting for dinner with delicious canapés served in the lounge areas beforehand.
Leaving the outstanding customer service and friendliness aside, the Old Rectory is a beautiful hotel with well appointed rooms and excellent food. The little lounge areas, conservatory and beautiful gardens provide wonderful spaces in which to make new friends or find your own space.
And the location is superb – peaceful, just a few metres from one of the nicest parts of the South West Coast path and within easy reach of some beautiful spaces too, like Lynton and Lynmouth, Dunster and the Heddon Valley.
We chose the Old Rectory as the location to celebrate our fourth anniversary and we couldn’t have chosen better.
This really is one not to be missed.
