This is a lovely clean and modern hotel. We had the Captains Suite. Huge room with a table and chairs in. Only downside, it faced the back of the hotel. Breakfast and bistro under the hotel at the front. We were there for a 50th birthday a few doors down the road, and visited a couple of hotels almost next... More

Purely by chance we stumbled across this beautiful hotel. Once we were shown the stunning rooms we promptly booked it for our wedding reception for 50 guests. Well ... all we can say is what a fantastic wedding weekend we experienced and a huge THANKYOU to all the management and staff that made it so very special. Everything from the... More

I visited here with my mother, we are 30 and 60 and found the area a bit too quiet. We had the Downs suite which was stunning! Super clean and decorated to a high standard, balcony was to us a waste, the view was gorgeous but because the balcony was only about 6 foot above the cafe it wasn't very... More

Whilst visiting the local area we decided to dine at this very attractive looking café/bistro which has amazing views over the bay. What a brilliant choice we made. The food was freshly cooked with high quality ingredients and presented beautifully. A wonderful meal of generous portions that was excellent value for money - the same price as eating in a... More

I love this cafe...we are spoilt living in Harrogate , North Yorkshire with the famous Betty's for afternoon tea but even they can't give you the view you get from a table here...amazing views over Babbacome Bay. Yummy luxury afternoon tea with a glass of prosecco.....my only criticism is a pot of tea would have been lovely to be included... More

We stayed here for a few days and had been recommended by a friend and weren't disappointed. There was a small error with the booking so without question they upgraded us and moved our stuff so we didn't have to (our room had been let twice for the second night by accident i think?) The receptionist was lovely and helpful.... More

We left it to the last minute to book but managed to get 3 nights in the Captains Suite as its a really nice hotel and area were then lucky to get another 2 nights by moving rooms. This was not a problem and staff very happy and willing to help us move. Beds very comfortable and everywhere very clean.... More

Had a nice lunch here. Cafe is beautiful and they certainly bake lovely cake.Must have a very good reputation as cafe was full at lunchtime. Very friendly and helpful staff. In an ideal situation with great views over the bay! Will certainly pop back again when visiting the area again.

Wonderful setting; the cafe has been tastefully refurbished. I had a great afternoon tea, the food was well presented and service was good, would definitely recommend popping in if you are passing by. I'm looking forward to going back and trying an evening meal.
