Second stay here and won't be the last. The staff are very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The view at breakfast over the downs is the perfect start to the day. Cereal, fruit and cooked breakfast all available. The rooms are quiet and reasonably priced. Both my mum and I are looking forward to returning soon.

The location of this hotel is perfect in every way. The views are outstanding. Our room overlooked the bay front and the views were breathtaking. Terrific walking areas all along the beachfront. Close to all amenities. Hotel staff very friendly, lovely breakfast in a dining room overlooking the water, doesn't get any better. Wouldn't stay anywhere else and we will... More

Lovely hotel & staff, Nice clean rooms, Great breakfast, & reasonable prices. Great location, just a short walk to the beach, a nice pub & the town. What more can you want?. We will certainly be back.

I have stayed here on a number of occasions over the past few years and always enjoyed my stay. Rooms are nice and clean, breakfast really good with great views from this hotel. Conservatory is nice and they sell peroni and good coffee. Off road parking a must for me as I like to park up and know its safe.... More

We stayed 22nd to 25 Aug family of 4, 2 adults and a 6 and 2 yr old. On arrival staff couldnt find our booking but was soon sorted out and we had a nice family room on the first floor. The double and single beds were really comfortable. A travel cot was provided not very fresh looking, by the... More

Booked this very last minute. We were really struggling to find any accomodation in Devon that had 2 rooms (1 a family room) available. Morningside were very helpful, they looked at how they could rearrange bookings to accommodate us for 3nights. Our rooms were very comfortable & spacious, with a sea view, (though it was a limited view, very comfy... More

It is 2 years since our last visit but the standard of all amenities have not slipped. Due to health reasons we had a ground floor room overlooking the car park but the facilities were just as good as the sea view rooms we had previously occupied. Breakfast was first class and the selection of snacks and drinks available during... More
