Our party of five arrived on the Friday of the August Bank Holiday. Parking was right out side the hotel, reception was quick and helpful. The rooms were very good and clean. Our first visit to the bar that evening was welcoming with a good range of both beers and wine at acceptable prices. The food in the restraunt was... More

A most delicious Sunday roast dinner, generous portions and plenty of vegetables. The staff were very friendly, thoughtful and accommodating (we were a large party with seven children). We were all so impressed we returned on the Thursday for an evening meal and were equally pleased with the quality of the food and service. The vegetarian main meals were delicious.... More

We stayed Saturday and Sunday night recently. The area is a photographers/walkers dream. We found the staff really friendly and personable. The room was clean and comfortable (although only one chair in a double room!) and the bathroom was very modern and clean. After reading one or two other reviews and comments about how good the food was I can... More

Stayed August Bank Holiday weekend. Nice clean room, very comfy bed, Great food, staff were always very helpful, polite and welcoming. Great location just a short 15 min walk to a great beach and you can then walk along the sea front to the castle about 2 and half miles away. The wife and I really enjoyed staying here and... More

We recently spent a couple of nights here, on the recommendation of friends, as a preliminary to a celebratory holiday in the area with our family. Our room was very comfortable, and there was an interesting menu for the evening meal. Friendly service, an excellent breakfast and good value for money, so we would certainly recommend the hotel and choose... More

The hotel deserves more than its 2 stars from AA (should probably be 3) and the staff were all very friendly BUT we were 2 adults and a 15 yr old in a 'family room'. The room appeared to be a double room with extra bed due to the position of the fixed over bed lighting etc. Made up only... More

Recently enjoyed a three night dinner and breakfast stay. This accommodation is highly recommended. Although it is only graded AA** it is of a much more comfortable standard. The evening meals were excellent and breakfasts ensured you started the day well fed with a menu & buffet selection to satisfy most individuals requirements. The location, in this quiet village, is... More

I would not wish to put anyone off from visiting but, in all honesty, we were disappointed. We had booked two double rooms; for myself and husband, and my parents. We arrived to find that Guinness had been taken off the bar... and even worse, Timothy Taylor's Landlord (favourite beer of both husband and father) had also just been taken... More
