CHARACTER & STYLE
Made up of two Georgian townhouses, this boutique hotel has great style - from the marble-topped tables, subdued greens and a flash or two of gold in the inviting restaurant, to the fabulous artworks, glowing open fire and antique baby grand in the high-ceilinged lounge-bar. Guest rooms display a similar panache.
Service is friendly and efficient. The focus here is on good food, rather than lots of facilities - but as well as the restaurant and bar, there's a good-sized garden. At a nearby wellness centre, a sister company offers complimentary access to yoga and fitness classes. Bikes can be hired, and boat trips and horse riding can also be arranged.

The quail with burnt apple, swede, bacon and sherry vinegar is delicious.
