Soar Mill Hotel has a location to die for, with wonderful views over the hills leading to a small, picturesque and unspoilt sandy cove. Our room was comfortable and quite large, and we appreciated the attention to detail: curtains that really cut out the light, cafetieres and real milk out of a jug for your coffee, home-made marmalade and jams at breakfast, good-sized bath and much more. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food of a high standard, if a little rich. The wine list was more than adequate.
However, when you are paying nearly £200 per night b&b out of season, you expect an outstanding experience - and we did not quite get it. The staff were a bit over-stretched, which probably explains why they forgot to bring our coffee two nights in a row. The waiters appeared to be mostly untrained and ours, for example, did not know what a granary roll looked like. The atmosphere was relaxing but not cosy, and would have benefited from an open fire. So, yes, we left feeling revived and refreshed and it has the potential to be a truly wonderful hotel.
