A beautiful setting was matched by the excellent hotel staff and their attention to detail. All of our party were highly complimentary of the quality of the meals and wines. We look forward to our next visit.

I was expecting a run of the mill bed and breakfast but what a surprise 5 star individual service from the whole team who treated me like aVIP throughout my stay. Attentive but above all friendly service. it felt more like staying with friends than a hotel. Food was amazing and the bed was so comfortable I didn't want to... More

Great welcome when we arrived and excellent hospitality all the way through. Our room was ideal with quality nexpresso coffee machine, TV and a very comfortable bed. Loved the Dorset breakfast in the morning; an absolute must following the New Years Eve party. This place is a real gem and would recommend it.

Fabulous style and friendly, attentive staff who could not be more helpful. After relaxing in the bright and cheerful bar, on returning to the bedroom, also immaculate with contemporary decor, it was disappointingly dark. We were unable to even see the instructions for the coffee machine; well worth the effort though once we got it working. A large, pristine bathroom... More

We were delighted by the warm welcome we received from the very attentive and friendly staff, which started with a welcome Aperol Spritz in the bar and we then moved in to the beautifully- decorated restaurant. The food was divine - my ravioli starter was delicious, as was my salmon main course,followed by an amazing Cassatina, with candied fruits and... More

We ate here as a large group for a Christmas meal. The food was good but when the waiter asked if everything was ok I commented that there was not enough bread with my starter. He went away without saying anything and did not return. Why bother asking then? Later on a couple joined us and had two coffees. They... More

14 of us went to celebrate my mothers 80th birthday with the afternoon tea package and it was well worth the money , the ambiance was fantastic and they were extremely friendly & helpful and the bottles of champagne were not overpriced for a hotel so glad they put their flyer though my mums bungalow will definitely be going again...

Was very much looking forward to coming here and I wasn't disappointed. Food was excellent! Steak just melted in your mouth, my partner and I shared a player, which was nicely presented. The food was also hot! Something a lot of places can't seem to manage these days. The only downside was that we were the only couple in the... More

This is the place for you to spoil that special person in you life--in a class of its own way above the normal hotel---small and luxurious with no stag or hen parties ---a car is good to have but not essential as buses pass the door interesting shops and sea front are all within a short walk---- we cannot wait...
