Visiting friends from London wanted to enjoy Sunday lunch yesterday and therefore I had no hesitation in booking us into the "Dovecliff" The food, service and venue can only be described as first class in every-way. Two of us stayed overnight to enjoy an excellent room and breakfast the following morning. If you have not tried the "Dovecliff experience" then... More

Our daughter & son-in-law gave us an Afternoon Tea voucher as a stocking-filler for xmas. What a disappointment! The tea consisted of 2 finger sandwiches each- one with half a slice of cucumber, the other with 'plastic' ham & they both had still-frozen butter. Absolutely awful. The slice of cake was stale, the scone dry & the jam tasteless. We... More

A mostly peaceful night with the waterfall as background sight and sound, a comfy bed and a generously sized room and bathroom. The setting, even on a miserable late March afternoon, is glorious and would be worth the price even if you had to sleep in a shed rather than the "ooh this is nice!" room you actually get. A...

Dear Umpalulu Thank you for your feedback, although you had an overall good stay with us -I would like to apologise for the disruption of my bar staff tidying up from a hotel function that evening.

One night, B&B, was a present from my Hubs on our 10th anniversary. It is wonderful, the staff are friendly, the food is good, the bed was so comfortable we could have slept another day away. Only one or two issues, light bulbs blown and not replaced, no menu in our room, and an empty salt cellar on our table,... More

Was a little worried after reading some recent reviews, but needn't have been too concerned. Afternoon tea on a groupon deal for two. We asked for decaffeinated tea and green tea, it wasn't an issue and both were Twinings teas.
