This was such a treat - such a surprise. Wonderful hosts who greeted me in a professional yet freindly manner. My room was very comfortable, roomy, warm and quiet, very clean and beautifully furnished. This is a B&B where you never so no to dinner as the food is scrumtious, original, local sourced and served in an airy restaurant. You make your menu choice whilst sitting by a roaring fire with canapes and a drink. Perfect. wonderful setting, gardens etc - immaculate like the rest of this wonderful establishment. A leisure rather than business B&B but well worth treating yourself occassionally if you are a business visitor.

I was met in the car park and taken to my room when I arrived. The rooms are big and the beds are very comfortable. Complimentary home made shortbread with your tea and coffee everyday. There was a walk in wardrobe in my room along with an excellent sized bathroom. The main dining area had a huge Christmas tree set up which was decorated beautifully with an open fire on the other end of the room. The food was fantastic and the portions were a good size and reasonably priced. The lounge area had an open fire with books available to read, a TV,a piano, and chess board. Service was very friendly and they couldn't do enough for me. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone for business or pleasure.

Great stay, David helped pull me out of a predicament that went above and beyond the call of duty, when he leant me his prized antique gold shirt buttons for my dress shirt, that I’d only just realised I'd left at home, with literarily only a few hours to go before the ball! So okay it wasn’t a complete make over and a new dress, but it did mean I managed to attend. Thanks again Dave!

Stayed one night as a business stopover, absolutely stunning surroundings with well kept gardens. I didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening . On arrival I was offered a tray of fresh coffee and homemade shortbread. The room was full of little personal touches that you don't often see, especially not in big chains. The bed was so comfy I overslept ! Very quiet and peaceful. Breakfast was delicious, fresh orange juice, selection of cereals and fruit etc and then a wide variety of hot choices from the menu. I can thoroughly recommend the full English, the sausages being particularly yummy ! Will definitely return and hopefully with husband as a leisure break rather than business.

I stay in many different hotels due to my job and have often seen them say that 'nothing is too much trouble' but until now, that hadn't been the case. The owners were delightful and managed to hit that fine line of being attentive enough but not overbearing. The food really was great, all home cooked and very tasty. Definitely somewhere we will return to if we're in the area.

Hard to fault - very comfortable - bedroom doors are directly on to an outdoor path mews style and you have to walk across to the main house to eat - I arrived late and was still able to get something to eat, excellent wine, lovely ambience in the restaurant and lounge, comfortable if well used beds, spacious bedrooms, poorly signed when you arrive but easy parking.

As a woman travelling alone I was made to feel extremely welcome and comfortable. The owners are truly hospitable and have a fine eye for details - all sorts of little extras to make sure your stay is a real pleasure. My dinner was delicious and the surroundings were delightful. I would highly recommend Clow Beck to any one staying in the area - why settle for staying in a chain hotel when when you can stay here and get so much more? My only regret was that I stayed in Autumn so didn't get the benefits of the lovely gardens after a long day at work.

"Four and a half stars would be more accurate"
05/19/15 DerekW10 Monmouth
This really is an excellent place and it is unfortunate that there is a "but". The setting is beautiful; the facilities first class and Heather has thought of everything and they work hard to make your stay enjoyable. The room we stayed in was spacious, well furnished, spotless and the bathroom modern and luxurious. We were impressed. One small issue was dealt with generously. The dining room is equally impressive. However, the food is where the "but" comes in because, though the menus is promising and one deciding factor in choosing to stay there, it just fails to live up to the price tag. Perhaps it is the lack of competition but these are very high prices for rather ordinary fare, though the portions are, if anything, overgenerous. Perhaps smaller portions with a lower price tag might be better value for money. It just took the gloss off a delightful place.

I visited this fabulous B&B on business just for one night. On arrival we were greeted with the offer of a drink and shown to communal lounge area. When ready the proprietor showed us to our rooms. We had two double rooms in bungalow just left of the main house. The rooms are all individual and finished to a very high standard to include various toiletries, more tea, coffee and hot chocolate you would need extra milks in a small fridge which also included orange and water again complimentary. A safe was available along with the usual facilities of hairdryer and iron. The bed was beautifully dressed with slippers and dressing gown should you require. To compliment the drinks a selection of sweets and homemade shortbread. We did not eat in the B&B in the evening but a comprehensive menu is available. Breakfast the following day was excellent with every choice of full english to a continental choice with fruits, jams etc. Overall i would say this is a fantastic B&B with some beautiful added touches to make your stay whether business or pleasure very enjoyable and a credit to the owners. Looking forward to visiting again one day!

"Favourite Hotel!"
04/10/15 Nina B Lincoln, United Kingdom
I have stayed here twice on separate occasions. Once on my own with business and another time with my partner as I was at a colleagues wedding. After my first stay when I checked out I booked the room straight away for the following week. This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in above Hilton's, Raddison Blu's etc... Every little detail is catered for. You are offered tea, coffee or a cold drink on arrival. You are helped to your room. There is home made shortbread in the room along with a vast array of hot beverages. The room is immaculately clean and even if you were looking for fault you couldn't find it. On my first visit I had dinner which was superb! I had beef wellington which was cooked to perfection. All food is cooked fresh at the time allowing for changes due to preference and nothing is too much trouble. You get a plate of canapés which is a lovely touch, home made bread and such generous portion sizes. Heather and Dave have thought of everything in the room, cotton wool, nail varnish remover, robes, slippers, sewing kit, iPod dock, a little fridge with chilled milk, orange juice and bottled water, chocolates on arrival. Little notes with how to use everything in the room. Additional pillows of varying comfort. I was blown away. On my first visit I asked for a shop where I could stop to get lunch, Heather gave me directions and fruit and yoghurt from the breakfast buffet to take with me which was so lovely. The breakfast is amazing, the first stay I had smoked salmon and poached eggs cooked to perfection, on my second stay I had a full english which was superb. I really was overwhelmed by the quality of this hotel, the impeccable cleanliness, the unrivalled service, attention to detail and beautiful grounds. I was only sorry that each stay was only 1 night long. I would have loved to have stayed for longer and I will ensure I return very soon for a weekend stay. I would describe this hotel as perfect and I would go out of my way to stay here again. It makes you feel so relaxed, well looked after and well rested. Heather and Dave you have got it perfectly right! Thank you so much!

Our nephew & neice stayed over Easter which is a regular trip & as always the standard is extremely high with every detail catered for. We joined them for an evening meal which was truly wonderful. The owners are so accommodating & the meals were fabulous. We would give Clow Beck a 100% rating

"Delightful stay in wonderful accommodation "
04/07/15 Emelye_Arcite
What an unexpected delight this B&B was! I can't recommend it highly enough. We stayed for two nights with a very young baby whilst visiting for a friend's wedding nearby, and I'm so pleased we chose to stay here. Nothing was too much trouble, the room was gorgeous and our hosts simply delightful. We had dinner in the restaurant on the first night and had one of the best steaks I can remember. We didn't make breakfast due to said baby practising his roars so a tray was put together for us to have in the room instead. Thank you for a wonderful weekend, we shall be returning :)

Searched Tripadvisor for a place to stay, Clow Beck House stood out because of its great reviews, we were not disappointed. We were made very welcome. Tea and shortbread on arrival in a lounge with a roaring fire. Lovely room with all the necessary facilities and more. Dinner was excellent and altered for our dietary needs without a any fuss. Clow Beck also has an excellent wine list. Breakfast was just as good. Excellent hosts, great personality. Highly recommended.

03/14/15 Elizabeth B York, United Kingdom
We had just married (secretly). On booking it was commented that the reservation was for a special occasion; they made it so! The location was impressive, the grounds full of quaint interests and pretty spring flowers and the welcoming tea we were invited to take, was served in a very comfortable room near a roaring fire. Our room was spacious, the bed huge with an incredible assortment of pillows and interesting decor. They had thought of everything, even home-made shortbread in the room along with chocolates and all the usuals. Dinner was served with style yet congeniality...Delicious! At the end of the meal we were brought bubbly to thank us for celebrating at Clow Beck House!! Breakfast was everything we could have wanted. I was sorry we were only staying one night. Roll on the next celebration.

Stayed at Clow Beck House in February 2015. Arrived at night and despite accidentally pulling up on the owner's own driveway instead of the public parking area (oops), David welcomed us in and said the car could stay till morning - no problem. Nothing was too much trouble. The setting, the rooms and the food (especially the home made soup and the porridge) are top-notch and the place has a real personality with lots of nice little touches. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer. Definitely plan to return. Sally & Ian

Just stayed over at Clowbeck House for Valentines Day and can't praise it enough. The owners were welcoming and very professional. The room was comfy and immaculately clean with lovely finishing touches, such as home-made biscuits, refreshments, chocolates and a dressing room. Breakfast was fantastic, couldn't have asked for anything else as they provided everything you could think of (including a champagne breakfast and also a good menu for vegetarians). The outdoor grounds were picturesque with some nice quirky features. One word to described our stay: perfect!
