My husband and I spent 11 days touring the Southern States of America in October of this year. We spent two nights at The Monmoth and were quite impressed when we drove up the drive to the hotel. The grounds were lovely and well looked after, as was the main house. We were booked into one of the appartments in the grounds overlooking a lake. When we were shown the suite we were very disappointed. The carpets were dirty and very heavily stained, the 2 wash-hand basins in the bathroom were both cracked and there was nowhere to hang clothes (no coat hooks) or anywhere to put our toiletry items. There were also dirty finger marks on the doors. No fridge or coffee making facilities. Therefore if we wanted a cup of coffee/tea on the veranda my husband had to walk up to the main Hotel to get it and by the time he had walked back it was almost cold. The breakfast was very basic, two choices of hot meals (one of which was french toast) , fresh fruit (very nice), only one lonely bowl of muesli, awful toast and choice of jam or marmalade. When we are on holiday we always look forward to a lovely choice of breakfast to start the day off with, but this was not to be at The Monmoth. Hal was a breath of fresh air and the waitress in the main dining room was lovely.
The rating for a Hotel of that standard in England would be at most 3 star.
