My partner and I stayed this weekend at the wonderful Broomhill Art Hotel. Although it was our first time staying here, we went with my parents who have stayed over the years on many occasions and were treating me for my birthday. From the moment you arrive at the hotel you realise this is not just an overnight stay in a hotel, but an experience. The approach to the hotel itself is scattered with brilliant sculptures that give a taste of what is to come within the rest of the grounds. The welcome was lovely and we were pleased with the rooms, although I think the owners themselves would accept that the bathrooms are in need of updating. That said, both our room and our parents room were well appointed looking out over the gardens, they were light and spacious and the art within them was interesting and unique. The rooms were clean as was the rest of the hotel. We spent a couple of hours exploring the sculpture gardens and as a keen photographer I had the opportunity to take some amazing shots of sculptures placed thoughtfully throughout the grounds. We came back to the main house to have dinner and enjoyed a 3 course meal (with complementary appetiser from the chef) for £23.95 per head. The food was excellent and the service was polite and prompt despite being fully booked. The organic wine list gives an excellent variety to choose from and the bottle(s!) we chose were very good value. The feel of the hotel itself is very much one of being in a family run establishment, and the owners are warm and friendly as are all of the staff we met. Overall, one of the best short breaks we have ever had and we will certainly being coming back as regularly as my parents have found themselves doing. Thank you for a wonderful couple of days.
