Just had three nights in Hunters Hotel and it is totally charming. My friends who live up the road remember having tea in the garden as children and say it hasn't changed at all. Booked a single room but had a lovely big double overlooking the wonderful garden. The room was full of antiques and you sink into the bed with thick feather toppers on the mattress. Breakfast and dinner are a real treat with everything done "just so" and the quality of the ingredients very high. The wine list was also very good. Sitting in the bar with the grandfather clock ticking, drinking a lovely glass of wine was total heaven!
