We contacted Nigel and Tessa directly to make a reservation and their response was very efficient (they acknowledged our special requests) and was followed up in the post with good directions and a photo to help us identify their building. The Inn is on the main road into Kingston - although the sat nav has problems finding the location, Nigel had forewarned us of this - set in a very well tended garden. They have clearly spent a lot of time and care renovating this house and have stayed true to its historical context in decor and styling. Our bathroom featured a claw-foot bath and floral curtains, and the bedroom also had a very Victorian feel about it. Having given us a tour of the house, Nigel provided good advice on sights and restaurants in the area - even showing us a range of menus to help our selection - and recommended the best boat tour to undertake. Luckily they provided huge umbrellas (we had torrential rain when out for dinner, which was unfortunate as many Kingston restaurants are closed Monday nights and we did have to wander around quite a bit). In true English style they provide good quality tea in the room - and fresh milk in the fridge in the living room. The breakfast was large and delicious (starting with grilled grapefruit and followed by beautiful pancakes, croissant and toast). The only minor complaint I had was that the curtains didn't quite cover the windows so I had to use my airplane eye mask - but anyone who doesn't require darkness to sleep would not be affected. And despite the apparent proximity of the road, it is very peaceful
