We have just returned from a nights stay at the Tempest Arms and had a fantastic stay! We visited last August but just had a meal. We were so impressed with the quality of the food and the impeccable and friendly service that I booked a room for our anniversary this August!
We booked Suite 13 with the hot-tub. When we arrived, we were given a friendly welcome by the receptionist, who informed us about room information, times of breakfast etc We were offered free cakes and cookies that we could take to our room too!
We were thrilled with our room-I have never seen a bed SO big! We were also impressed with the little touches too-chocolate that was bought locally, little sweets and two pieces of flapjack! I especially liked the L'Occitane toiletries and the fluffy towels and robes!
The hot-tub was fabulous, with great views over the fields! This was on your own terrace which wasn't overlooked at all.
We booked a meal in the restaurant and had a couple of drinks in the bar first-the Raspberry Bellini was gorgeous!! We were impressed with the service of ALL staff last year and this year was no different. The menu was huge, with so much choice, but I chose the roasted asparagus and seafood pancake, and my hubby had the pate and lasagne, which was all delicious! I really wanted to have the sticky parkin with custard and ginger ice-cream but couldn't eat another thing!
The bed was so comfy and we both had a great nights sleep.
The breakfast was eaten in the restaurant too and we were given a warm welcome by the "waitress" . There was a great choice of cereals, fruit juice, fresh grapefruit, yoghurts etc. There was also a good choice of hot dishes, from the huge cooked breakfast to boiled eggs, kippers etc. I chose the omelette with vine tomatoes, field mushrooms and Wensleydale cheese which was absolutely delicious-so light and fluffy!!!
Overall, the stay at the Tempest Arms made our anniversary very special and we both said that we like to return in the winter-with the log fires in the bar etc.
If you are thinking about staying here, you won't be disappointed!
