Montrose Hall in Sherwood Crescent was granted an Outstanding rating by the Care Quality Commission following an inspection.
The Anchor operated care home received top marks in four of the five categories that contribute to the overall rating from the CQC.
Montrose Hall joins the top 4% of care homes in England and becomes Anchor’s ninth Outstanding rated care home in the country.
The care homes manager, Kim Jones, said: “We all know Montrose Hall is a great place for older people to live but to be given such praise from the regulator is outstanding.
“We are proud of the care we provide, of the meals which are made from fresh seasonal ingredients and of the wide variety of meaningful activities enjoyed by our residents.”
The report from the CQC said of the 41 resident care home: “A huge amount of thought and planning had gone into ensuring the home meets people’s needs.
“The staff and maintenance team had completed all the work on the décor of the home themselves, often doing so in their own time.”
