We first came to The Somerville in late March hoping for some Spring sunshine but alas, our visit coincided with one of the coldest and most miserable periods of the year! The only thing that rescued our break from disaster was our stay at The Somerville, where the warmth of the welcome went a long way to compensate (see my earlier review). We surmised that if we enjoyed it in such adverse conditions then a repeat visit would be worth while. How right we were.
This time we arrived at the beginning of an extremely hot spell of weather, to find that all the windows in our room had thoughtfully been opened prior to our arrival and crisp cotton sheets had been left in case we didn't want to use the duvets. As it was my birthday a bottle of champagne had been ordered which arrived not only chilled but with chilled glasses. We did not drink it all and left it in the fridge where we found clean chilled glasses the next day. It is this attention to detail and personal service that makes The Somerville so special. You rarely have to ask for anything, Adam and Grant always seem to be one step ahead of you. I feel a third visit a distinct possibility!
