My wife and I plus two friends had a most pleasant stay in this hotel last week-end. On arrival we were greeted by the most friendly receptionist who checked us in smoothly and efficiently and pointed us to our rooms.These were well appointed and contained everything for our stay. We had obtained a special e-rate and therefore did not expect... More

We arrived to be greeted with lovely staff, beautiful hotel and got a lovely comfy table looking at the views from front of hotel. The afternoon tea was lovely, everything perfect, and got offered more, but the amount we got was ample. A relaxing lovely time we had and would go back there again.

Beautiful hotel with amazing views of the coast from the bar, restaurant, and, if you're lucky, from your room. Helpful friendly staff and comfortable room. Only one suggestion to have bottled water in the room? Fabulous evening meal and breakfast with stunning views. Would definitely book here for a leisure break if returning to this area.

A group,of us went for a meal last Sat. The hotel was very busy as there was a wedding at the venue, resulting in very slow service. The food was ok, although the food generally was cold, would probably look for another venue next time we meet up,with our friends.

This hotel has had a major refurbishment! Very well done and stylish, the reception, bar, restaurant and outside area are now lovely! Our evening dinner has mixed reviews, while some in our party enjoyed all the courses the rest thought the food was at best ok! e.g. Burger/ steak tower/lemon tart? Room for improvement! Tip....the booths should only sit 4... More

The view from the terrace was beautiful! Felt right at home, single room with everything I needed. Busy with a wedding party but the guys were very attentive and friendly. One down point, the breakfast was a tad shabby, couldn't find brown sauce or butter. All in all though I would return!

As guests to a recent wedding we were looking forward to our meal, but we were very disappointed! We both had the chicken meal, other option was roast beef! We've never had such poor quality in food! I couldn't finish the small piece of chicken that I did have as it was chewy, dry and tasteless and with that, I... More
