Stayed here for 4 nights , friendly staff ,tasty food ,indoor and outdoor pool, games room and well stocked bar, entertainment in the evening except a Wednesday where the nearby Babbacoome Theatre put on an excellent show. Single room was clean and adequate for my needs . Only slight negative is the décor which requires updating.

Arrived late May 2015, weekend stay. Was too busy to try amenities pool/restaurant etc. Cheerful, helpful staff. Delux room spacious, clean, comfy, lovely four poster bed. Downside key policy when not on premises (they ask you to hand key in) and locked doors late at night. Didn't spoil a lovely weekend. Free parking (as space is at a premium) and... More

Fantastic holiday at the Cavendish. Lovely staff, Alison on reception was so helpful and friendly, the children loved her. Saturday entertainment was brilliant especially the mini disco with Charles & Alison. We had a fantastic stay and will definitely be going back. Lovely family run business, well done to all of you for making our stay so enjoyable.

Reception staff were not the friendliest or most helpful considering they've been trying to 'drum up business'. Dark haired lady receptionist gave out attitude when I dared ask for a spare towel and the waitress who served us was just plain odd!?!? Shame as some staff were lovely but will not be returning. Indoor pool was closed due to a... More

Stayed here in June, had a superior room, looked over the pool towards the sea on second floor, checking was fine, reception area has had a recent make over. The room was dated and bed worn (sagging mattress) as you walked in you hit your hip on a wardrobe and on your way our hit your knee on bedside cupboard,... More

My grandparents owned this hotel in the 60s-70s and after spotting it on 'The Hotel' program, we decided to have a family reunion there. I hardly recognise the place, it is now very dated and it was quite disappointing to see what state it is in. However, we enjoyed our bit of nostalgia, we were in room 112 overlooking the... More

We have just came back from a week at the Cavendish. This was our second visit as we had a valentines weekend there too. This time we stayed in room 12 and we where very happy with it. It has a lovely large balcony and a very comfortable bed. The food in the restaurant again was very good. The only... More

Admittedly our tour organiser had gone for budget - hence the rooms we got were badly in need of refurbishment with stained carpets, non-working lamps and faulty windows. However putting that aside there were no tissues supplied, no shower gels or shampoo (we take ours anyway) and cheap loo roll. The worst thing was the mattress - it was worn... More
