My friends and I booked the Loft in the Mill as a treat and what a treat it was! We stayed here for one night and were pleasantly surprised by the comfort and luxury of the suite we were in. Everything from the furniture to the fittings was done with thought and executed well. We were so impressed we spent the first half hour there taking photographs.
The room we were in has two separate sleeping areas, a good sized sitting and dining area. The bed and bedding are very comfortable so you will definitely get a good night's sleep. I love good bathrooms and this one I would love for my own home. The shower is over the large jacuzzi tub, which is large enough for at least two. The bath products are Molton & Brown and the towels provided are fluffy and clean. All the fittings are in gold, adding a touch of luxury to your bath time.
The pantry is well-stocked with breakfast items like bread, butter, cereal, milk and orange juice. There is an induction stove, toaster, kettle and even a dishwasher which is great for longer stays. The Loft provides all manner of cutlery, kitchenware and glassware for use which makes you feel right at home.
The Loft is also great location-wise as it is minutes away from several attractions like Sky High and the National Rhododendron Gardens. While we were there, we were offered a free limo service by Sky High which we took for our dinner out that night. There are many places to eat or shop at nearby though some of these might close early. If you drive, there is adequate parking right next to the Loft.
The only thing for improvement would be better air-conditioning in the bedroom and loft area as it can get stuffy, though an additional fan provided helped somewhat. All in all, I had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing stay in this beautifully quaint hotel.I would definitely recommend it and would go back especially if I plan to spend more than a day up in the hills.
