Spent two nights in one of the Deluxe rooms overlooking the village square. Huge, huge room with massive bed, desk in window, coffee table and sofas. Beautiful, big bathroom with wet room style shower and free standing bath. Luxuriously homely. Rooms are in different buildings in the village. If you order a morning newspaper you will need to collect it... More

My girlfriend and I were lucky enough to get a late cancellation at L'Enclume hotel on a Saturday night and the biggest perk of this was the accompanying restaurant reservation. The room was homely and spacious and the eggs benedict for breakfast in Rogans was the best I've ever had. We can't wait to stay again.

Stayed in the hotel for two nights. It was an interesting room, directly above Rogan and Company restaurant, but we weren't disturbed by any noise. The room was rather dark because the windows are quite cottagy and small, but it had good bathroom facilities and a very comfortable bed. Access was by a spiral iron staircase from an internal courtyard.....the... More

I cannot reconcile the awful reviews on this site with our experiences at l'Enclume.Sine my last review we have returned again for lunch and are just booking again for November. I am what I regard as well qualified to critique any restaurant having been in 'The Trade" since the early 80's and we eat out on a regular basis at... More

We stayed at l'enclume for two nights and ate at the restaurant one evening. The rooms are of a good standard with comfortable beds and an excellent bathroom. There is an issue with noise in that in the rooms near the restaurant you can hear the diners below and people coming up and down the stairs, however this is really... More

Room Quality: A Huge room, very quiet, lovely décor. Perfect bedding and towels. Cleanliness: A Spotless, as was the bathroom. Service: B Very friendly – however our internet never worked, and there was no one to call to fix it after hours. That’s why it’s a B. Stay here again? I might look for something less expensive.

We thoroughly enjoyed lunch here on Thursday. It was a lovely dining experience, most memorable. We were amused on leaving when the waiter came running out saying we had forgotten our menu..................it's so special!

So we went for the full 19 courses given we had never had so many in one sitting and were unlikely to do so again. My friend and I were having a 4 day break in the Lakes and had kindly been loaned accommodation so decided to blow the saving on the recently designated top restaurant in the UK. On... More

We had a very nice welcome on arrival and there was a log burner giving out plenty of much needed heat on a cool rainy day. We were shown to our room where we had a bottle of English champagne and some strawberries and shortbread waiting for us which was a lovely treat. The room had a high ceiling with... More

The food really lived up to our expectations - it was exceptional. Excellent wine pairings too. Sommelier very persuasive - we ordered rather more wine than we were intending to. Breakfast in the morning was so-so, but we didn't feel like eating much anyway, after our food and wine extravaganza the night before.
