We arrived at Higher Trapp Hotel, an ex Best Western Hotel, now under new ownership. This was an all inclusive break to celebrate a friends 70th birthday.
Check in was seamless , smiling friendly staff and shown to our room, The room was pleasant with a view over the car park ( the quiet side). Bed was large and comfortable, bathroom was basic but great shower and bath, loads of hot water. We went downstairs for an explore, lovely grounds and views across the valley.
We all congregated for the first evening meal, food was good wholesome fare, choice of a la carte for a few pounds extra, ( 2 courses included in all inclusive), Drinks were included after 6.00pm, choice of beers and house wine. We tried all red, rose and white, all palatable.
Service was excellent throughout.
The rest of the guests arrived for the next evening celebration, again food was basic but well prepared, service throughout was exceptional, the wine was continually flowing,
Overall a excellent budget all inclusive break.
The hotel is well situated for exploring the surrounding Pendal hills and quaint villages, a car is a must.
