We had a family meal here just after Christmas. We don't get to see each other much and so it was important that meal was a success. I need not have worried. The menu was interesting and the food itself excellent. The staff extremely friendly and helpful and so I have no hesitation recommending it.

I've just got back from a romantic weekend staying in room 2 at The Woodlands Hotel. Caroline, the owner was great, nothing was too much trouble and she was very welcoming. The room was immaculate and the breakfast was lovely. Would stay again.

We only had chance to stay for one night as we find it hard to get away from our business! However Caroline and her team really made us feel at home. Fantastic location a few minutes stroll from the beach. Beautiful bedrooms - homely and luxurious! Delicious breakfast. Could not have asked for more! Will be back again soon. Would... More

From the moment we arrived our host was relaxed, friendly and helpful. Our room was beautifully decorated, with high quality fixtures and fittings that made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We booked in advance for dinner and... More

I dined here a couple of nights ago whilst on holiday. Strictly average food. It was just stuff I could easily do myself at home, nothing special. I had the Goats Cheese salad starter and the Cod main.

We dined at the Woodlands twice during our recent stay at Sandsend and were massively impressed. It is located at the end of a stunning valley so a little hard to locate. We were staying locally in a cottage and stumbled across it whilst exploring the area. It's a small dining room but well decorated and has a small bar... More

We spent a really great night in the woodlands hotel. The attention to detail in every respect is amazing.we had a lovely room, quiet, beautifully decorated. The evening meal was excellent, the bar well stocked, and breakfast was great too. But the best thing about this friendly hotel is the locations: you may struggle to find it, but once you... More
