Ross on Wye
Okay, we admit it. We’ve bent the rules a bit here, but it’s worth it. Wilton Court is in England, not Wales, but only just. It’s a quirky – and entirely successful – combination of influences thanks to the travels of your hosts.
Helen and Roger have brought to this fine historic building – Elizabethan in origin – decorative curios and objects d’art from time spent in the Far East. As experienced travellers, they know their hotels, and have created something very special here.
Each room is individually decorated with William Morris or Sanderson wallpapers and fabrics, and all bedrooms (including ground floor rooms) have quality beds and an abundance of accompanying touches, including kimonos and Gilchrist and Soames toiletries. Wilton Court’s warmth of character, hospitality and romantic riverside location feature highly in guests’ comments, as does the food. In fact, it nowadays describes itself as a restaurant with rooms and is widely known for its award-winning dining.
