I genuinely have to say what a fantastic hotel this is. We came down with our 11month old daughter and stayed in a family room, which we were upgraded too. I honestly cannot fault this hotel in anyway. The staff were just so nice, polite and extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was just perfect. The selection... More

16 of us (6 rooms) stayed for one night on Saturday 4th Feb - it couldn't have been better for us. The lounges were perfect for so many of us and the staff were great. The fire alarm went off in the night (no fire) but the manager couldn't have done more to rectify the situation and letters were put... More

We had an excellent weekend break. The staff were very helpful. We had dinner both nights we stayed and the food standard was very high. The breakfasts were excellent too, and we would recommend the hotel and restaurant to everybody. It is the first time we have stayed in a Menzies hotel and were impressed with everything and everyone at... More

I did enjoy this hotel ,with its sea views and comfortable lounge. However, the taps in the bathroom had not been cleaned for years. The bathrooms and plumbing need upgrading

This was our fourth visit to this hotel and we stayed for the New Year package. I would recommend the hotel but not at such as busy time as the staff (who are brilliant and very helpful) were run ragged dealing with the many demands of the large groups of people (the hotel was full).The location is fabulous, easy to...

Two night dinner bed & breakfast deal (with Dorset cream tea on arrival) was a very good deal. Both food and service were excellent throughout our stay. Porridge and fish were available at breakfast (to order). The evening dinner menu was imaginative, and the food was attractively presented. Service was attentive but unobtrusive. We had a superior room with a... More
