We stayed at Amber House so that dad could go to the National Memorial Arboretum, the Far East POW memorial in particular having been held by the Japanese from the fall of Singapore. Gill was genuinely interested in him and his story. Gill was always on hand to offer coffee and biscuits and her range of breakfast options was exceptional at the price charged for the stay. Overall it was excellent value for money and a pleasant break.
