These were the first words we all said when we arrived and it just got better. Amazing accommodation, views, walks. Ian is a wonderful host and we felt at home from the first minute. Truly wonderful weekend and planning a return visit ASAP

Wonderful location and brilliant hospitality, what more could you ask for? Oh yes how about brilliant walks, a beautiful Thai eatery, a lovely little village pub. All that and we stayed in the Keepers Loft (not for the faint hearted), but all jolly good fun none the less. Thanks to Ian & Charlie for making our stay memorable and looking... More

I could rave and rave and rave about Belle Tout. Every aspect, (the rooms, the breakfasts, the hospitality, the setting, the staff, the attention to detail) was simply wonderful. The only way you could ever understand how wonderful a stay at Belle Tout could be is to try it yourself., so if you get the chance en do! Every room... More

Well, what can I say that has not been said already? Not a lot but I feel I must. Brilliant location; isolated and right on the cliff top with gorgeous views in every direction. Fabulous features, fittings and fixtures. Everything seemed just right. Themed rooms, all with taste. Ours was the smallest but the best (in our opinion). The Keepers... More

On arrival we were greeted by the marvellous host Ian who showed us to our wonderful room where the wife was greeted with a birthday card... A lovely touch. The Belle tout is a must stay. The...

Just spent a lovely night and the Belle Tout Lighthouse. It is without doubt the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The location is out of this world, the hotel itself is immaculate, clean and beautifully decorated. The bed again is the comfiest we have stayed in. The friendliness of the staff just tops that off, especially Ian. A... More

I just realized I never left a review for this breathtaking lighthouse. How could that be... Belle tout was a highlight of my trip. I actually visited in March 2012. I stayed in the keepers loft, which was perfect for a solo traveler. Ian is a wonderful cook and very helpful! Staying in a lighthouse is a rare treat, take... More

A lovely three day stop for honey moon - champagne and chocolates at the top of the lighthouse was unforgettable. Great rooms - great view - great walks - lovely staff. A real treat - Andrew looked after us so well!

Just spent two nights at The lovely little Belle Tout lighthouse and would thoroughly recommend it. Amazing 360 degree views of the coastline and Southdowns, lovely clean, smart rooms, lovely breakfasts, helpful, knowledgeable manager and staff... Didn't want to leave. Will definitely stay there again. Thank you Belle Tout!!
