Myself and two work colleagues stayed at the Cheriton in October 2016 while on business. We arrived late at the hotel and the owner Denise & Dirk ensured they were available for our arrival. Dirk was also extremely helpful in recommending places to eat that would still be open. After a speedy check-in by Dirk and a quick walk around he then volunteered to give us a lift to the centre for a place to eat. We couldn't of asked for more after a long journey from the UK via Dubai.
Initial impressions of the hotel and owners were positive and we were made to feel extremely welcome.
I stayed in the Emily Hobhouse room, located off "The Private Pub" which was decorated with previous guests memorabilia, it was amazing and with the bar being run as a honesty bar it just added to the memorable stay. The guest who stays in the Emily Hobhouse room also has the key and control to this bar. The only rule is that the bar must stay open to other guests till 8pm and after that it is at the discretion of the occupant.
The bedroom was large with plenty of room and the shower was excellent. There were plenty of free condiments ie coffee, biscuits and water to satisfy any guest. The only downside was the WIFI was not working during our stay.
Breakfast was outside on the veranda overlooking the tranquil garden with stunning views of the bay. I have not eaten breakfast in a better and to go with the views the breakfast which was made to order was top notch and more than expected. It set us up for our day's work.
Walk to the centre is no problems, its all downhill and takes approx 15 mins. Walking back though is all uphill and the last 100 yards back to the B&B in pretty steep so more like 20-25mins walk. It will definitely improve your fitness and burn off the calories from your night out so with a negative is a positive.
I have absolutely no negatives from our stay (even with the uphill walk back). I could not recommend the B&B enough and would definitely look to stay there again.
