4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

A four star hotel with scrupulously clean rooms fairly well presented allowing for ’ware and tare’ and with a good sea view from our room. The staff were very friendly and helpful even when making comment on problems items. The incorrect functioning of en-suite sink & bath operations somewhat marred the stay. Hotels seem to wait for customers to inform... More

Great location, great views, very nice good quality hotel, if a tiny bit dated, very clean, staff very friendly… HOWEVER Our room was like a cupboard with a double bed squeezed into it ! A premier inn or a travel inn gives you more space. Would have been small even for a single room, only one person could fir in... More

Had a fabulous gathering on the Duchy's terrace for a birthday afternoon tea in the sunshine! The tables were set for our arrival, the staff ready to serve us our Prosecco, and when the cream tea arrived the scones were warm and tasty - probably the best I've tasted in a long time! The hotel has gone through some tasteful... More

The vegetarian menu selection over the last couple of visits has been outstanding, backed up with fantastic service from a hard working team. Vegetarians are not easy to cook for but at... More

Lovely location, very friendly and courteous staff, room clean, very well presented. Very nice food. Well worth staying for a weekend if you want to get spoiled. Easy distance to the castle, town and next to the beach, great for any watersport.
