We stayed at the Captain's House Inn for 2 nights and this was our first experience of staying in a B&B (so everything from now on has to meet our extremely high expectations).
James and Jill and their wonderful team of English Hospitality Interns, Jamaican Cleaners (who we did catch cleaning our room oops - sorry girls we came back early from breakfast) and the Chefs/Kitchen Staff and Gardeners should all be commended as they work together to make your stay such a memorable one.
We were warmly welcomed and shown around the common areas of the property, then taken to our room, Whirlwind. We were offered help with our luggage that we were not expecting being a B&B, which was lovely.
Our room was just like the picture on the website, albeit better. There was a plate of freshly made cookies with a blue ribbon wrapped around it in a bow. Such a lovely touch! We had an open gas fire in the room, which was a lovely after a late afternoon stroll on the beach. There was a little basket of goodies, such as Cape Cod Crisps and water in the room also.
The bathroom was a little small and I am not sure if you laid in the bath that you could actually see the garden as it states on the website, but it was functional and very clean so that is probably more important. There was really lovely shower gels, shampoos, conditioners and moisturiser in the bathroom, along with with make up remover sachets and a black face cloth to wash your make up off with. Brilliant idea! Towels were lovely and soft and bright white, just what I like.
Our bed was fitted with beautifully soft, silky linens and the pillows were plump and comfy. I loved the little steps up to our 4 poster bed. There was a turn down service which was wonderful after we returned after our evenings out. Lights were dimmed, bed linen folded back with robes laid beautifully on the bed and Lindt mint chocolates too! How spoilt did we feel! We were also left a copy of the breakfast menu for the next day and a early morning tea/coffee service which will be delivered to your room (and it was - perfectly to time as well).
Breakfast and Afternoon Tea are served in the Conservatory which looks over the well maintained gardens of the Inn. It is bright, sunny and warm (and so is the service from the staff). We were treated to some outstanding seasonal breakfasts, including pumpkin pancakes and fruit crepes. There was also smoked salmon with capers, selections of fruit, breads, croissants, and homemade muffins along with local conserves. This filled us up till afternoon tea most days. Afternoon tea was scones, jam and cream along with a selection of homemade cakes.
In the evening there are refreshments sent up in the kitchen, more wonderful biscuits to tempt you with….
The Library in the common area was warm and inviting and there was also Port and Sherry in there for a wee drink. It also contained the computers and printer if you needed them. There was also a powder room located close by. I enjoyed the fact that you could walk by the kitchen and see where everything was happening. There was also a little shop with a nice selection of Captain's Inn items to purchase.
The staff are very knowledgeable of the area - places to eat and places to see. There are also directional cards that you can take to help you find your way, along with maps, brochures and magazines of the area.
We would thoroughly recommend the Captain's House Inn to anyone who was thinking about staying there, just do it… you will not be disappointed!
