My husband & I booked a very good KGB deal here for two nights 9th & 10th March.A couple of days prior to our arrival I had a telephone call to advise that scaffolding had been erected and so we would not be able to use the balcony with our room.This wasn't a problem for us,being early March.When we arrived we were booked in and shown to our room (room 1).There is no car parking available in the village and after unloading our bags my husband took the car back to the car park at the top of the village (approx 10 mins walk).I must admit this worried me a little about our visit as I am disabled ,but as it turned out it was ok as I could be picked up and dropped off outside the hotel whenever we used the car.However,when the village becomes busier during the filming and summer months I would imagine this to be pretty much impossible.
So what about the hotel...?Our room was clean and comfortable with a lovely harbour view and just overlooking Mrs Tishells pharmacy.We could see the Doc's surgery and Louisa's school from the bedroom window-a bonus if you are a fan of the programme.
Breakfast was excellent-good choice of juices/freshfruit/cereals/yoghurts with a cooked selection of your choice and toast and preserves.
We dined in the restaurant on both nights.A lovely restaurant-had a nice atmosphere.I chose duck the first night and I had to ask for it to be cooked some more as it was a little too pink for my liking it.However,on the second night I ordered steak and it was perfect.My husband's choices on both nights were lovely.
The hotel staff were pleasant,friendly and helpful,and I would definately stay here again.I believe that in the height of the summer and also when filming is taking place, the village would not be as nice as it would be far too busy and packed but thats just a personal opinion-some people may prefer it that way.
