As a working professional who travels tens of thousands of miles each year and stays in hotels/inns well over 60 days out of every year as well, I'm always on the lookout for accommodations that appreciate the weary traveler. Atherston Hall met my every expectation - from my charming room to the cozy breakfast nook and relaxing television room - Atherston is decorated to reflect its innkeeper's personal warmth and a sincere interest in making guests feel like family without being forward. For me, a great 'fixture' was Savannah, Atherston's well-mannered Labrador who sat dutifully in the hall while I ate my wonderful breakfast of maple walnut granole, fresh scrambled eggs & bacon and toast with fresh fruit. Her presence made me miss home & my four-legged friend a little less. If you're looking for value without sacrificing comfort, atmosphere and character, I heartily recommend a stay here. I only wish I'd had more time to see the sights and stay more than a day & night.

This stay was for a family reunion and we arrived for afternoon tea - scones and cakes which was great. The accommodation is beautiful with so many little touches and attention to detail. This is agreat place for a family or friends to get together as we were so pleased there were no televisons in the rooms and everyone wanted to be together and chat! Breakfast was a treat with homemade granola, fruit and hot dishes. We would definately return and recommend Atherston Hall to anyone wanting a pleasant break.
