We stayed for a couple of nights in the Bradshaw room, styled as "superior" and it was very pleasant, managing to be spacious and cosy at the same time. It is an old, beamed room with a large fireplace and not well fitting windows to the outside road which, although it seemed virtually traffic-free, did produce street noise, the sound... More

Booked room and tasting menu for my husband's 40th birthday and it was amazing. The food and service are second to none and we are frantically saving for our next stay. All of the staff treated you as if you were the only ones staying there and couldn't have been more friendly and attentive. Rooms are lovely and we especially... More

We were in the main building next to Rogan & Co but I believe some rooms are in other buildings. Our room was delightful and well decorated. We only had a shower but that is what we expected as it was a standard room. The bed was very comfortable and we had a pod coffee machine. I'm not sure how... More

I booked a 2 night stay at L'Enclume for my husbands' birthday. The hotel and restaurant is in a beautiful setting. We were in room 2, which was comfortable and had everything we needed. My only issue was on the first night it was noisy from the restaurant underneath clearing away and getting rid of wine bottles, etc...... I mentioned... More

We stayed in a superior room (number 4) directly above l'enclume as part of two night mid week deal. Our room was well furnished with nice plush carpets,a seating area, a view over the pantry of l'enclume and some fields. The room was on the first floor and was quiet. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom was nice. I assume... More

Stayed for one night while eating at L'enclume restaurant (which was fab!). Hotel is round the corner from the restaurant situated in an old building. What it lacked in modern, it made up with character. Overall very good and well kitted out with free wi-fi, TV, iron, tea making, fridge and a capsule coffee machine. We were in room 10... More

Lovely modern ground floor room. It had comfy bed, modern shower room, tea and coffee with fresh milk in small drinks machine, bottled water, hair dryer etc. and was very clean. There was a door into a small enclosed terrace garden by the river. It is on ground floor and diners venture into the garden, and part of the restaurant... More

My Wife and I booked a 1 night stay in a suite (Room 8) and dinner in the L'Enclume restaurant. I have reviewed the restaurant separately. The room itself is about 100 meters from the reception and about a minute walk to the restaurant. The room was very spacious and the bed is very comfy and huge. There is an... More

We stayed for one night in a Superior Room (19) which faced out to the Methodist Church and gardens. The bathroom was enormous and modernly decorated with a huge rain shower. The bed was extremely comfortable with eygptian cotton linen and the matching furniture and fittings were all tastefully added. The room had a nespresso machine with plenty of capsules,... More

We stayed two nights to eat at Rogan and Co and then L'Enclume itself, and had a wonderful time. The hotel manages to successfully combine the charm of a great central village setting, with old beams and uneven floors, with modern high quality facilities. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was very good indeed, with lots of space... More
