We booked Rolles Court using a recent voucher scheme run by a certain red top newspaper. We chose Rolles Court as we were looking for a quaint peaceful country retreat in a part of england that we hadn't really explored before, and didn't want to hand our money over to a huge multi-national hotel chain and become yet another anonymous customer.
Firstly, the proprietors Jill and Ian were very hospitable hosts. They had presented our spacious bedroom very well and all was extremely clean and tidy, and the interior of the room, and the house in general was full of original features and character. Their choice of mattress ensured a good nights sleep for us both too!
Jill's breakfasts were certainly something to get up for in the mornings, and Ian was a dab hand at pushing the plunger on the cafetiere for the lovely morning coffee. Even the cats tended to show up when we came down for breakfast, which was a welcome surprise, and just shows the high regard in which breakfast is held. The large selection of home made conserves were very tasty, which caused me to force more toast into my stomach than I normally would, especially after a fry up!
Both Ian and Jill were very knowledgeable on their surroundings and are well qualified to suggest places to visit, or offer additional information regarding places you state you are planning on visiting. Despite this, there are a multitude of leaflets available in the conservatory for perusal if need be.
Sadly, the weather was such that it we didn't get an opportunity to appreciate the large gardens or the pool, but these would be a welcome addition given the right circumstances.
All in all, if you're looking for a nice well kept family run bed and breakfast with considerate owners who look after their customers and seem keen to ensure they have an enjoyable stay, then I would thoroughly recommend this bed and breakfast.
