Stayed here for one night after reading the reviews here. Was not disappointed. Very clear that Stuart, Susannah and their staff take great pride in making this an exceptional place for their guests. Lovely setting on the edge of Contin. Beautiful gardens with some amazing trees. Met by Chris and effortlessly checked in and shown to our room. Room cosy and very comfortable bed. Made to feel very welcome. Public areas very well presented with traditional decor. Very relaxed atmosphere and open fires in entrance and bar. Bar was nice place to enjoy a pre-dinner drink. Menu had a seasonal feel, and the challenge was to decide what to have. The home smoked beef carpaccio was amazing; melt in your mouth tender with beautiful smoky taste. Spicy butternut squash spring rolls were wonderful. Main courses of beef fillet and lamb rump cooked to perfection. Puddings divine, though a challenge to make room for them. Overall, a fantastic meal. Presentation great, lovely flavours in every dish and good portions. Wine list extensive, and having followed a tip from Chris, enjoyed a lovely wine. Staff throughout were very attentive but not obtrusive. Just the right balance. Breakfast followed in a similar vein. Will certainly be going back to this charming hotel.
