Just back from a stay at The Twenty One and we can only echo the stunning reviews that have already been submitted. The place is beautiful, tasteful, spotlessly clean and the welcome from Matt and Andy is heartily warm without being over bearing. We were met with a very welcome cuppa and a chat about the places we might like see/eat at, etc, and were provided with a helpful map.
We stayed in room 4. It is the smallest room, we knew this when booking and this is reflected fairly in the price. It is small but perfectly formed. Sumptuously decorated and the complimentary tray should have the tag line "if Carlsberg did complimentary trays...." Rocky Road, iPad, iPod dock, flat screen tv, spotless....need I go on?? The amenities are well thought out: an iron and ironing board on standby, a dvd library, a normal kettle in the room (not one of those silly travel things), big mirrors, a good hair dryer with a long lead in front of the mirror (so no need for stretching and craning of necks to dry your hair!). Lovely bathroom, great shower, nice toiletries and good quality toilet paper (a small but imperative detail!)
The breakfasts are sublime, plentiful, fresh fruit, wam croissants, fresh juice, fab sausages and not a soggy mushroom in sight. Matt and Andy needed to be complimented, in these hard times a lot of people would cut corners to reduce costs but they are obviously passionate to support local business, and while it may cost a little more they are maintaining a great ethos. So nice to see people who seem to care so much that their guests have a good time. Matt and Andy are just lovely decent people and this shines through in their business.
A gem of a place and 100% worthy of its number one ranking. Thanks to you both for a great stay (& the birthday chocs, a touching & a much appreciated surprise)!
We hope to see you again soon
