Maybe not a fair comment, but the reason I marked down 'quality of sleep' is because the Broad Leys is currently undergoing massive renovations, which will certainly enhance this lovely place once completed but doesn't allow you a 'sleep-in' during your holiday stay. Workmen started at 8am and so the cement mixing and brick grinding 'alarm call' did somewhat spoil an otherwise perfect holiday break. Once finished however, the boutique rooms, will be in their own little manicured courtyard at the back of the property, with electric, private access gates that only the residence of these room will be able to enjoy. It will be fabulous.
When we first arrived we were a little bit concerned that The Broad Leys is right on a main road and next door to an Esso Petrol Station!
However, from the moment we walked in all our worries disappeared...
The staff and service is first class.
Our boutique room (#1: The Cream Room) was at the back of the property, beautifully decorated with lots of attention to detail & a fabulous bathroom.
The 'breakfast' is much more than a continental affair: cereals, fresh milk, fresh orange juice, fresh fruit salad, croissants, mini-rolls, yogurts, flapjack - all beautifully presented in the fridge the day before so you can take out as a packed lunch, if you'd prefer.
The restaurant menu is very good - try the 'Top Dog' if you fancy something different and incredibly tasty!
Great selection of beers & wines.
A lovely outside area to enjoy those barmy warm evenings.
