I have to admit I am a little biased about the Tempest because we were married here 7 years ago, but I love staying here. We have just returned home after staying for a long weekend to see the children and grandchildren and watch the Tour de France passing by.
As usual, everything was lovely. The lady on reception with the little dog (sorry, I don't know her name) was so helpful when she rang us to advise she had a cancellation and could fit us in for more nights. Clare in the restaurant was efficient, friendly, helpful and seemed more relaxed. The 2 rooms we staying in were also nice. We stayed in room 8 for one night and then room 22 for 2 nights. (We had to change rooms as we got a late cancellation and it was fully booked due to the Tour.) Our cases were moved by the staff which was very helpful.
We ate in the restaurant or the bar each evening and the food was great as always.
It was our favourite restaurant before we moved to live in Scotland and it now our favourite hotel! Can't wait to come back.
