While I enjoy the luxury of new hotels, I really find them quite soulless and depressing. Marple Lodge takes all the good things from the world of luxury hotels and merges them with all the good things from the world of B&Bs - a beautiful, new property with quality finishings including luxury linen and a quality convection microwave in the kitchenette. The piece de resistance is the "bathroom": the bathroom itself is a spacious room with an amazing shower, large bath, toilet and vanity however there is an adjoining, separate toilet and a separate double vanity with enormous mirror. I stayed for two nights with my husband, my sister and her husband, and my brother as we were attending a wedding in town. The bespoke bathroom arrangement was perfect for our needs and I may actually renovate my own house to replicate it! All in all I can't really say enough good things about this place - wonderful hosts, quiet location, plentiful breakfast provisions etc etc. It would also be very good for families with children as there's a trampoline and large yard. I would definitely stay here again.
