Hotel Review

Les and Vanessa Scott met at art college, but found their true metier in 1990 when they transformed their family home, an elegant listed villa, into a delightful hotel. Their artistic flair is reflected in the eclectic decoration: luxurious, funky rooms with interesting furniture, plump cushions and masses of books. The food is a highlight and wins awards, with everything from bread to chocolates made in Vanessa’s kitchen. Don’t miss the exceptional British cheeseboard.
