It was good to stay in a hotel which is different to the more modern spa hotels where all the rooms are the same.
The staff are keen to assist in any way they can. The receptionist remembered my name and staff in the restaurant had the knack of being there when needed and somewhere else when not. The restauant may not be to everyone's taste. It seeks to be high cuisine which means the food is very good but the portions, whilst adequate, may seem a bit small to some. It is also expensive. However, unusually for this type of restaurant there are some reasonably priced wines available. I would recommend that guests try the restauant at least once but if you prefer something more homely there is a really good pub about 200 yards away with a thatched roof, cask ales and the home baked pies are just brilliant.
Breakfast at this hotel is teriffic. Its not the usual buffet available in most hotels anywhere on the planet - you order what you want and they prepare it fresh. Try the porridge - its great - actually, so are the muffins and eggs, - and the salmon - and the full English and the coffee - they even get the toast right!
The spa is very good. It is small but there is a hot tub, warm pool (not really big enough to swim in) a sauna, steam room , laconium and various showers. They also let you wander around the hotel in your bathrobes.
This is a good hotel which is not pretentious in any way. I would have no hesitation in recomending it to friends.

Bannatyne's Charlton House is just about as far away from the stuffy, uptight country house hotel of old as you can get …More
We enjoyed our stay at Beachside Suites in Minehead. The location and parking are convenient for pubs, restaurants and shops. Parking is easy. The room was comfortable and the owners had provided everything necessary for a short break.
Warm and welcoming, a true oasis of calm with wide-sweeping views over Exmoor. Very comfortable and clean rooms and would strongly advise eating in the restaurant as the food is excellent in terms of quality and value.
We went on previous reviews when booking the hotel and it is nice to be able to say that it lived up to and surpassed our expectations
"River Garden is a barn newly converted to B B room"
I feel very lucky to have discovered River Garden B B. When I arrived I was made to feel welcome and was given a very welcome pot of delicious tea and an example of Kims wonderful baking.
The room was just right with doors onto a patio which led to a beautiful garden with the river Cam running along the bottom. Breakfast room was brilliant , again due to the excellent conversion.
Excellent place,in the middle of nowhere but easy access to town and coast. Simon the owner could not do enough for us. We took our pup and who was welcome everywhere.would definitely stay there again.
We booked Sandford House B&B for an overnight stay on our way home from a holiday in Devon. We chose this B&B because of its excellent feedback rating, convenient location (i.e. near M5) and reasonable price. The booking was made online using Experia who were reassuringly efficient and sent an immediate confirmation by email.
On arrival at the B&B we received a warm welcome from the owners Phil & Nerina who served us with free coffee and delicious home made fruit cake in the cosy visitors' lounge. After a nice evening meal at the nearby Malt Shovels pub we had a good nights sleep in the very comfortable and well equipped en suite bedroom. The breakfast menu was equally impressive with a wide choice organically home grown ingredients perfectly cooked and presented.
