The note/ restaurant is set in Kenton a lovely picturesque village near Powderham Castle. During the night the only...

I'm a little late in writing a review, but I visited Chi's in December for my partners 30th birthday. I attempted to organise a surprise party and the staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating! Unfortunately on the evening of our booking 3 of the couples dropped out due to unforeseeable circumstance, however, the staff could not have...

Great accommodation especially for the price. The bed was comfortable and all areas really clean. One small gripe was creaky floorboards, didn't bother me but was worried about disturbing people in the next room. Choice of breakfast from full English to oriental was really good. Managed to book a table in the restaurant, food again really good, cannot wait to...

Chi is definitely the best place to eat in the area. We have visited many times both for casual meals and family celebrations. Every time we have visited we have been welcomed warmly by the staff who are unobtrusively attentive. The food is excellent, and is consistently of a very high standard. Good fresh local ingredients perfectly cooked. What more...

Stayed here on the way to Cornwall to break up the journey and also thought it querky a Chinese restaurant with rooms. Welcoming staff showed us to our room which was clean and comfortable and well worth the £65. If you eat here as well they give you a 15% discount off your food and drinks bill. A contemporary restaurant...

After a dodgy start, not feeling particularly welcome as we had our daughter with us in her pram (which we had advised when we booked) we had a word with the owner and this did the trick. We then enjoyed our evening with very good service and great food. We stayed over and had a comfy room and nice breakfast...
