A comfy bed, a snuggly duvet....hang on I'm not Lenny Henry and this is not an 'out of the box ideti-kit hotel' but a lovely B&B in a 400 year old plus building in Ross-on-Wye that offers the above and so much more.
The Old court House is a delightfully individual building with lots of beams and creaking floorboards. The welcome is warm and the smiley owners are more than happy to chat and make you feel welcome throughout your stay.
Bedrooms are cosy and the beds are good quality with pristine white linen. The shower room was small but more than adequate with plenty of hot water.
Breakfast is one of the best that I have tasted in any UK hotel and sets you up for the day exploring the locality.
The Old Court House is a B&B that does just that. There is no evening meal option but they do provide sparkling chin, knives, forks and wuine glasses should you wish to bring back a take-away from one of the several in the town. They even provide an in room fridge to chill that bottle of wine or lager.
I visited in the summer but will be back for a winter visit when I can enjoy a real log fire in the open fireplace in the room
