The Telegraph 'Sweet (hotel) dreams are made of these: our hotel reviewers imagine the places they’d most like to stay' by Fiona Duncan and friends
Stunning views, hammocks and caipirinhas to hand… Fiona Duncan and friends imagine the places they’d most like to review.
We are delighted that Ballyvolane House got a couple of lovely mentions in Fiona Duncan’s article in The Telegraph Travel about what her dream hotel would look like. Thank you Fiona!
“The key attribute for my dream hotel is “generosity of spirit” and so there will be complimentary newspapers, homemade cakes oozing with cream for tea, and an imaginative honesty bar, preferably including the hotel’s own liqueurs and gin (such as Bertha’s Revenge at Ballyvolane House).”
“The food (nothing fancy; save me from tasting menus) will be an array of home-cooked local dishes, laid out on the flat-topped stove top as at Ibitipoca. Feasts shared with other guests at Coombeshead Farm and Ballyvolane House also bubble into my mind, as well as a particular dish of freshly picked alexanders at Gurnard’s Head, of salsify gratin at the Pheasant in Harome, of wild mushrooms at Hambleton Hall and of lobster, prepared at the table as if by magic by Diego Masciaga at the Waterside Inn.”
