Spent the weekend of 22-25 January at this gem of a hotel as an anniversary getaway. Have stayed several times over the years and have watched it being upgraded to being an extremely nice place to stay. We took advantage of a special offer for the weekend and were not disappointed. Had a lovely sea view room - bed was... More

Tea and biscuits were waiting for us when we arrived. We were then given a welcome talk by Lucy the hotel manager explaining times of meals etc. There was entertainment each night in the Grand Lounge. Breakfast and dinner were taken in the Romanoff room. The décor was superb. Beautiful chandeliers and pictures to die for. The staff were very... More

Although we have visited the Headland on many occasions , this was our first visit since the refurbishment and what a transformation aided by the excellent Christmas decorations which blended nicely with new lighting particularly in the revamped lounge/bar area . We were fortunate enough to be allocated an upgrade ( not requested ) to one of the Royal rooms... More

On our second visit to this excellent hotel, we found even more to enjoy and appreciate. Public areas and the bedroom were spotless, spacious and in an excellent state of decoration. Staff are most efficient and handle the large number of guests with practiced skill. Dining, at breakfast and dinner, is a real treat. There is a good choice of... More

Absolutely fabulous! I could not fault anything. Food, cabaret, room, staff - amazing. I have stayed here many times and I have never ever found the Romanoff Restaurant and its food/service to be nothing but excellent in everyway. The package for New Year was fantastic. Beautifully decorated for the season. I danced my feet of four evenings to great cabaret.... More
