If all B&B's were like this, I would never stay in a hotel ever again. There were so many wonderful attributes to this beautiful inn. I booked this inn as a surprise for my husband's birthday. He travels a lot so I knew that whatever I booked, it had to be special. The Old Monterey Inn did not disappoint. Firstly, the serenity of the house and gardens washes over you as soon as you get out of your car. The owners and staff could not be more welcoming and warm. As a birthday surprise I ordered chocolate covered strawberries and champagne on arrival. Delicious! I also booked a fireside couples massage for a little later. I can recommend starting your stay with this experience if you can. It was perfect. Late afternoon complimentary appetizers and good wine is set out for the guests. There is a constant supply of hot and cold beverages and snacks available, and even a decanter of port for fortified wine lovers. Before breakfast we sat outside drinking coffee and taking in the serenity of the gardens, interrupted only by a very busy squirrel in the branches and a sighting of a fawn taking refuge in the ivied grounds. Breakfast is such a treat. The table is so beautifully laid out. Breakfast in bed is an option, but my husband and I chose to eat with the others guests both mornings that we stayed in the inn. I loved my first ever experience of dining and interacting with other guests over a delicious breakfast set up on a huge table next to a roaring fire.
Our room was so inviting and cosy. Lovely, comfortable bed to sink into and easy to use jacuzzi.
I cannot fault my experience of staying in the Old Monterey inn. It really was such a treat and a wonderful experience. I have worked in hotel and catering management for animber of years in the past and as such am so impressed with the amiable professional care we received. My husband and I will be raving about this inn for some time to come.
