I never book a hotel when we go away, I like to take my chances and not be tied down to a fixed routine. Besides, what's the worst that can happen? But we really landed on our feet when Rose Bank was recommended to us by one of the local tea rooms. As soon as we met John & Elaine, we knew we were in safe hands. John showed us to our room, and what a lovely room, clean, fully-equipped - TV, hair-dryer, tea/coffee-making facilities etc. etc. Very comfortable bed, probably one of the best I've slept in. Beautiful en-suite with a fantastic, extra-large shower, just great. John chatted and explained how everything worked, what a very charming fellow. They have a great system for ordering breakfast, you can pretty much have what you want and as much as you want. I'm afraid I rather took advantage, I can't resist a big cooked breakfast when I'm staying overnight somewhere! We decided to eat out in the evening, despite a very tempting evening menu. No point travelling if you're going to hole-up in the hotel is there?? Not surprisingly, breakfast was delicious, cooked to order and served in a lovely room with an open fire. All very relaxed and friendly. Here we got to meet Elaine properly, just as charming as John and just as easy to talk to, I think we could have chatted all morning! We're not demanding people, but I'm sure nothing would have been too much trouble for John & Elaine. All in all, a fantastic find, and exceptional value. We would definitely return, no doubt about it!
