The absolute highlight of the hotel apart from its rather moody location is the spa.... More

We were blessed with mild, sunny weather and panoramic views. The hotel is comfortable, very clean and I really appreciated the improvements that have been made there over the last few years. The hotel staff were welcoming... More

Fabulous stay in a very well equipped cottage. Very friendly and helpful staff - who were on the go all the time but still managed to make you feel very welcome. Our view was of the tennis court, which was disappointing, but it was only a few steps away from the magnificent sea view. Easy walk to the beach, and... More
