Normally I do not leave reviews for hotels I have stayed in, and in fact this is my first on this site, simply because I do not enjoy looking to scrutinise all the points of a hotel whilst on either a leisure or business break such as many on these review sites seem to enjoy doing.?However in this situation I have decided to break trend as the pen mill hotel was simply ’Outstanding ’. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the pen mill recently from the very moment I walked in. I was greeted as I walked in by a very polite young gent behind the bar who fetched an equally polite and attentive young lady to check me in and explain all the hotels details and policies. Needless to say first impressions from the room 100 followed suit from that of the staffing team. The room was tastefully decorated, comfortable and had all the modern necessities such as an impressive smart TV and free, unlimited wifi connection. As well as this, as it was exceptionally warm outside a desk fan was also put in the room, and in ironing board was delivered on request. After settling in my room and I returned to the bar area for a drink. Again, I was far from disappointed. A good selection of premium lagers and spirits and Cornwall based beers. However I opted for an ’Orchard Pig’ cider, one of the local ciders from the extensive range if Somerset ciders and sat down to look at a menu. I was very impressed with the ordinary evening menu but instead decided to go for one of the 6 specials on offer, which was Somerset liver with crispy bacon and onion and sherry gravy with mash. This arrived exactly as it said on the tin and needless to say it was executed perfectly, especially along side a couple more of the local ciders. ?After a wonderful nights sleep I headed down to the restaurant for breakfast, which again was fantastic and was all locally sourced, from a butcher who was named on request. As i reluctantly handed back my key to the room The checking out precedure was made simple and quick by the member of staff who wished me well for the rest of my travels.?Anyway, after having seemingly become one of those people who do write a full review of every moment of my trip, I sincerely hope that anybody looking to stay at the Pen Mill will take on board these comments and try it out for themselves. It is a real yr eat to see an independent business thriving and really putting in the effort such as the pen mill. To all the staff at the Pen Mill, I thank you all for your hospitality and wish the business all the best for the future.
