We first visited the Manor House Hotel four years ago and have been back at least once a year ever since. It's recently had a complete refurb and you can now expect the very best in luxury, which you wouldn't perhaps expect on a remote island. Our room boasted not only spectacular views of the harbour, castle and priory but a plasma screen TV!
Dining is intimate and service attentive with staff that take pride in their work and always have a smile and have time for you. We have dined at the very best restaurants in London and New York but nothing can beat the local produce served here. The lobster and crab are superb (you need to pre-order lobster) and for desert you can sample home made ice cream sourced from the diary up the road (not available in NY)!
The hotel has a relaxed friendly atmosphere - the rooms, quite possibly boast the best views on the island. However, I would say the island (and islanders) should be treated with the utmost respect.
To avoid disappointment we've booked our favourite room (well, I'm not going to tell you which one, you'd have to find that out for yourself) a year in advance - it's a bit like staying in a house, rather than a hotel, hence the name!
