The accolade was awarded for their ‘lovely individually furnished and thoughtfully equipped bedrooms, (some with fireplaces and four poster beds) in a 15th century hotel with stunning medieval features.’
The ancient hotel with 28 en-suite bedrooms has been lovingly restored by private hotelier’s Nigel and Anne Way, who ‘rescued’ the Luttrell Arms from administration in 2013. The restoration was hardly noticed by the regulars and today the hotel retains the charm and ambiance of bygone days.
“Today’s guests need 21st century comforts, a balance that is challenging in an historic building commented Marketing Manager, Becca Way, and we are all pleased with the recognition by The Good Pub Guide”. The 14 national awards are for pubs that demonstrate excellence above and beyond other entries in the Good Pub Guide itself. Richard Robbins, a local businessman and regular said that the award was, “well deserved”.
The historic atmosphere at the Luttrell Arms is obvious. As one guest put it “You expect Shakespeare and the King’s men to come round the corner at any minute!” Once a favourite haunt for the Abbots of nearby Cleeve Abbey, the hotel now houses an acclaimed Restaurant, cosy bars with open fire places and suites for parties and private functions. A winning combination indeed!
