Very enjoyable meal, though the watercress soup was rather bland (needed a good stock base), and the food didn't quite match my expectations from the photos on the on-line menus. However the service was absolutely excellent from the staff - very quick and attentive. Although it was mid-summer it was quite cold at times as there was a cold draught... More

Arrived on Father's Day were made very welcome. Staff warm friendly and courteous, nothing was too much trouble. I was limited to the ground floor through my lack of stair mobility as there is no lift. Room was in a good position well presented and clean. Evening dinner excellent with a range to suit everybody. I found the fish salad... More

Stayed here for just the one night. Definitely in need of room makeovers, tatty blanket on the bed, mismatched furniture (and the 'bedside table' was a bit of chipboard with some material over it!!). Balcony (plastic) furniture was dirty, glass pane on balcony was broken. Such a shame, because from the outside it looks very well kept.

First impression old fashioned but quaint with friendly receptionists. Room was clean, apart from the bed, and lovely view (room 9). However bed was horrible - covered with an ancient quilted bedspread, underneath was a tatty blanket - pulled this back to check if bed was in same condition, it was. Frayed and dirty, quite horrible. Went to the bar,... More

Not trendy or modern but neither is the Strand Palace in London. It's a classic,well furnished hotel, with excellent food and pleasant, well informed, helpful staff. I was also in the '70's motel' end with sea view and balcony but soon found my way to reception. Parking was good,no extra charge. Pool was small but there's plenty of warm, yes,... More

First impression was hotel looked very dated. We booked a room with sea view, but it was at the furthest end of the building in a part that looked like a 70's motel and it took ages to get there from reception. Room was small and and en suite toilet was not working so we were moved to a bigger... More

Staff lovely, excellent food, lovely hotel, room really comfortable. Had a lovely stay. The only downside was no entertainment or anything to do in the evenings, but the bar was lovely. Would go back.

we have just returned from Corbyn Head Hotel having stayed for 4 nights. We were with a group of people on a coach and the staff bent over backwards to accommodate us. They were all so friendly and had a smile for us all. Lots of staff at mealtimes and very efficient. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. The food was absolutely... More

Evening meal in pleasant atmosphere. Lovely food from a good choice menu and attentive but unfussy, old fashioned service. Coffee served in the lounge which has great views across the bay. Recommended.
