The hotel itself was excellent, and the staff very obliging. We spent a week at the hotel, and found the breakfast's first class, but the evening meals were a bit bland for our taste, but most people said how good they were.

We had tea/coffee/hot chocolate and biscuits replenished daily. Newspapers were delivered to our door at 7am each morning. The room was at the back of the hotel looking out onto... More

Just returned from another week at the Headland Hotel. If you want a friendly hotel with glorious views and wonderful food this is the hotel for you. All the staff are very welcoming. I would especially like to thank Tamsin, Charles and Tomas for making our stay special. I would recommend this hotel very highly.
