Hotel Review

You half expect to see Miss Marple taking tea in mellow old Buckland Manor, sitting sedately in its combe next to a little church. Inside, you’ll find gracious, comfortable sitting rooms, a dining room where gentlemen are required to wear jacket and tie, a superb wine cellar, and 13 gorgeous bedrooms with latches but no room keys. The man responsible for the hotel’s down-to-earth friendliness and continuity is manager Nigel Power, who has been at the helm for 21 years.
