Booked a two night stay at the Villa Marina about three hours before checking in due to a short notice business trip.... wasn't too sure what to expect but the reviews were good and looked nice from the photo's.
Arrived to be greeted by Peter and Viv, who couldn't have been more welcoming, enquiring about my journey and enthusiastic about my stay.
Upon checking in I was advised on the dining room for breakfast and offered discount vouchers for two local eateries which were a really nice touch, I was also offered a Cream Tea which I had to decline due to a health kick !!
I was shown to my room by Peter, called the "Singer" Room which is located on the ground floor next to the reception and to the rear of the property. The room was decorated to a very high standard with a superb refreshment offering along with a bowl of Roses Chocolates. They also provide a very informative Guest Information Pack which provides you with everything you need to know about the history of the house and ideas for trips out.
The bathroom was rather "bijou" but was spotless like the room, with a great offering of toiletries.
The shower in the morning was surprisingly powerful and lovely and hot, so I was able to go to the office suitably invigorated.
Unfortunately didn't try the breakfast offering as had to be in the office early but the menu looked fantastic.
All in all a fantastic little place, I am looking forward to bringing my other half and daughter to stay for a few days in the summer.
