Absolutely fantastic from the moment my husband and I walked through the front door nothing was to much trouble, straight away there was some one to take our coats and another offering us a drink. Canapés were passed around always very quietly and not in your face drinks also always on hand. The actual meal was superb and delicious quite... More

We only went for Lunch to celebrate my aunts 96th birthday. The lunch was excellent value for money, my only small thing was that the choice of desert wasn't brilliant. However I can honestly say I have never been to an hotel that had better staff. They were all so friendly, so many of them and they couldn't do enough... More

We have just spent four days over the new year at the Corbyn Head Hotel, what an absolute pleasure. The hotel may have a 3 star rating but the food, presentation and the staff in my opinion are 5 star. All the meals were served piping hot, well presented, and cooked to perfection. Our room was clean and well appointed,... More

This has been the sixth consecutive Christmas I have stayed at the Corbyn Head, again it has been brilliant. In a lot of ways the most memorable of them all, I can't praise Anthony, Angela, Stephen, Luke The New Head Chef and all the staff enough. The food, service, friendliness of both staff and guests are all brilliant. The dining... More

10 of us, 6 adults, 4 youngsters (6-14) had a lovely weekend here before Christmas. 3 very clean/neat rooms (some need a bit of refurb) but the food was excellent, with comprehensive choice at breakfast, and 5 course evening meal with good choices. Staff worked so hard to make us all feel welcome. We had sea facing rooms with wonderful... More

I love this hotel and the Livermead House Hotel. We have our annual Women's Bible Study Conference here - 8th time a week ago. The service before the conference and the weekend of the conference is outstanding. Great food, great rooms. The Corbyn doesn't have a lift but if you are able bodied that shouldn't be a problem. Location is... More

We have been using this hotel for more than 30 years and whilst acknowledging some parts are tired, there are reasons which guests will not be aware of. Over the last few years considerable amounts have been spent on replacing the flat roof and to conform to regulations the fire alarm system has been updated and for the same reason... More

Well appointed Hotel overlooking the sea. Stayed with a group at the end of September. The hotel covers 3 floors, it has no lift, but that is complimented by having a number of rooms on the ground floor. Rooms are very comfortable, perhaps the bathrooms need updating a little, showers with mixer taps are not very easy to control, The... More
