Mallow Suite

A wonderfully spacious room arranged over two levels with exposed oak beams and original stonework. This room has an antique four poster bed and the decor is modern 13th Century, and includes a comfortable two seater sofa, modern limited edition prints, a 37" flat screen television and tea and coffee making facilities.

The room is complimented by a state of the art, modern bathroom with walk-in shower and double Jacuzzi bath, Duck Island Bergamot toiletries, bath sheets and towelling robes.


Needing a getaway to recover from a really pressurized winter, we opted to stay at the Hoops for three nights in March. The weather was wonderful, but it was tempting to stay in - our room was under the thatch in the oldest part of the hotel and featured fireplace, panelling, stained glass and a very comfy half-tester bed with tapestry hangings. Window seats and a top-notch en-suite completed the picture. It's very quiet, despite fronting the road.? The inn itself had very friendly staff for whom nothing was too much trouble, a cosy bar and a restaurant, both with lots of nooks for a secluded meal. The bar menu was comprehensive and the restaurant fare stylish - but we found we could mix and match from both menus no matter where we decided to eat. There is a characterful 'snug' and a library space too. Breakfast was gargantuan - a huge choice of dishes including local kippers and smoked haddock with poached eggs, and as a touch of luxury at no extra cost smoked salmon with scrambled eggs.

?We loved it all and would go back again any time!? A stream runs through the garden, and wild birds keep you entertained. It's a great place to tour from, coast and moor and historic towns all within easy reach.?It's not cheap as a one-off at a published rate around 200 a room per night with breakfast, but there are often good deals to be had for three night stays: we paid a total of 195 B&B for three nights in a 'best' room.
