We arrived at The Pearl Hotel after a long drive and were greeted by the very friendly receptionist. She explained the breakfast system to us and gave us a breakfast sheet to return to her later with our order for the morning.
The Pearl hotel is beautiful inside and even before we got to our room we were impressed.
The room was tastefully decorated and had everything we needed from fresh bottled water,tea, coffee and biscuits to a massive wall mounted TV opposite the very comfy looking bed.
The bathroom was huge, very clean and had a large walk in shower.
We were hungry and after settling into the room we decided to try out the room service for which a menu was provided. It took a few minutes and a quick phone call to realise that the room service was not provided by the hotel but by the Tavan restaurant that shared the building. So I rang the restaurant and placed an order. They told me they could either take payment by card downstairs at the restaurant or they could take cash on delivery.
The meal was delivered to the room on a tray and it really had the wow factor, both in looks and taste!
I had ordered a starter of Kral Karides, char grilled king prawns marinated in lemon and coriander. The prawns were absolutely delicious and were also served with a very nice complimenting dip.
I also ordered Sebze Moussaka, a vegetarian moussaka and it far exceeded my expectations! The plate of food was a beautiful, colourful dish, reminiscent of food I have been served in top restaurants in Turkey. The moussaka itself was perfectly cooked and accompanied by rice, couscous, Cacik dip and very fresh salads. The mix of flavours complimented each other brilliantly.
I also ordered sides of chips and Ekmek, homemade Turkish bread. The bread was amazingly fresh and delicious with the dips and chips.
I can honestly say that the meal was the best room service meal I have ever been served and £20 well spent!
After a very comfy nights sleep, the breakfast we ordered the night before was delivered to our room.
Breakfast is continental and we had been given the option of various juices and hot drinks, a selection of cereals with hot or cold milk, pastries, croissants and toast, a selection of jams and fresh fruit. Every item we ordered was delivered in the half hour time slot we chose and it was great to wake up to breakfast in bed. We had breakfast included in our room rate but if you don’t then it costs a very reasonable £3.99 per person.
We had a very comfortable night at the extremely friendly Pearl Hotel and absolutely loved the meal we ordered from the Tavan Restaurant. If we are ever passing through Peterborough again we would definitely stay at this great value hotel.
