We stayed here for 3 nights (Tuesday-Friday) and took advantage of their off-season package. The hotel is full of character and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We stayed in Room 12 which was a large, comfortable room (very comfortable bed). It has a superb view out to sea and had a small balcony that, had we come in... More

Amazing food, friendly staff who know how to make your stay special and relaxing, fabulous location, can't wait to go back. This is somewhere to go when you want to... More

We loved, loved this hotel. Breakfast was amazing with homemade everything--bread, jam, butter. The apple juice is fresh-pressed and the best I've ever had. The meals, both breakfast and dinner, are wonderful, varied, and divine. The hotel is charming, friendly, and impressive. The staff was constantly warm, friendly, and helpful. We stayed in room #6 that had a separate room... More

One of the best Sunday roasts in the area by far. The service is always fantastic and every meal we have had has always been exceptional. Would highly recommend for a meal. Also great in the summer for a drink in the garden. Great views overlooking the sea as well as being lovely and peaceful.

We stayed for 2 nights early December in Room 15 - Island view. The room was spotlessly clean, large, and felt like home from home with lots of books, radio and fresh coffee, tea and home made biscuits. We did miss a TV in the room. No wifi in room but free wifi in lounge area. The restaurant was always... More

A friendly and inviting welcome awaits at this ideally located small hotel. Our balcony room was beautifully appointed and the no TV policy encouraged a relaxing break and to take full advantage of its location. The food throughout our stay was superb. A return visit is already on the cards!

Just lovely and relaxing , plus excellent dinner and a great wine list. So comfortable and lots of little touches that make it worth returning. Highly recommended, great value, especially on a windy November day.

From the casual tea area/pub/restaurant to the wide variety of terrific books throughout the hallways and in the rooms, the Old Coastguard Hotel serves up homey hospitality in subtly understated but luxurious style. So comfortable from the outset that you might begin to feel as though you actually live here (without having to cook your own breakfast--included with the price... More

It’s difficult to know what to praise first. The setting is wonderful, with views from most rooms over the sea and/or the harbour. The rooms are rustically stylish, with clever colours and fabulous paintings (mostly for sale at very fair prices!) and mercifully none of the “frilly country house fussiness” that so often passes for style. Thick towels and first... More

This hotel was gorgeous with lots of nooks and crannies ; books everywhere and art for Africa, also lovely friendly staff. The food in their restaurant was superb, in fact we were quite surprised at how good it was in this far flung corner of England. I had pidgeon with celeriac and beetroot for entree - delicious. For our mains,... More
