The Checkers Montgomery Reviews
Great food and rooms Jul 16, 2012
The Checkers is located right in the heart of the Montgomery town square. The Checkers is best known by the locals for its highly rated restaurant which received a Michelin star in 2011 but travellers to the area will know it is also a 6 room hotel. Each room is different and theme of French names for them matches the menu and nationality of the head of chef. The building is listed so as you expect there is a mix of modern amenities alongside original post and beam construction throughout the premises.
Our room, Le Pruneau, was even better than the website photos make it out to be. The main room is decorated with a white king sized bed fitted out with very comfortable mattress and linens. The window overlooked the square. The town retires pretty early so we didn’t find noise an issue. The room is stocked with a full tea/coffee set and the best part was the homemade cookies. A non-functional fireplace with a white mantle and minimalist painting finished off the room.
The bathroom was very modern with all the latest in fixtures including automatic blinds but still maintained the rustic feel with exposed beams and a low ceiling. Our room had a huge free standing tub with handheld shower unit which made my wife very happy. Posh bath soaps, a temperature controlled towel rail and soft bath robes completed the experience.
In the morning breakfast is served with a selection of cereals, fruits and yoghurt and your choice of cooked breakfast. The fresh baked bread and homemade jams were also very good. Guests can book in for dinner also but as the restaurant is small and the only one in the area with a Michelin star I think they book pretty quickly so reservations are a must. There is also a small pub area that anyone can use which has some sofas and a working fireplace that I can imagine is very nice in the cold winter months.
