We cannot praise this hotel enough. A truly memorable mini break. The food is excellent. A gala dinner on New Year's Eve and a disco for dancing and seeing in 2015. The owners and staff do a wonderful job.

Yesterday I had a two course lunch at this hotel and was very pleasantly surprised. The staff were extremely pleasant and when I asked for a birthday cake (which I had supplied) to be brought to our table as a surprise at the end of the meal, not only did they find candles for it but three of the staff...

From arrival to departure staff were always attentive. Accommodation/Cuisine/Location rated 10/10. In my estimation the hotel deserves 4 star status. A little work on the Wi-Fi and providing either Sky/Cable TV would benefit visitors, especially on a winter's day. Sincere thanks to the chef and his staff. Evening meals and choice warrant a Michelin award. See you again next year.

Stopped here for lunch. The hotel staff were attentative and friendly. The crab sandwich was really good and my wife had the chicken salad. It was also filling and presented well. The atmosphere was relaxing a welcome stop after a lot of shopping. Really enjoyed our lunch here.

My sister and I have just returned from another fantastic 4 night pre-Christmas shopping break at this wonderful hotel. If you want a friendly, family run hotel with a lovely warm atmosphere and extremely helpful staff, this hotel is certainly for you. Certainly some of the rooms are a little small but as you only need them to sleep in,... More

Had to get away urgently, and just needed somewhere by the sea to lay my head. I found this hotel on laterooms, liked the pictures, loved the location and the distance from home. When I arrived I couldn't have been more pleased. Fantastic, true seafront location, with fantastic views out to sea and also over the tremendous landscapes to left... More

Not sure it is always good to revisit somewhere you have enjoyed but nothing had changed at the hotel. The welcome was as warm, the staff were as happy and helpful and the food as good. Once again it was not warm enough to enjoy the balcony so we looking forward to trying again next year.

From arrival to departure all staff were attentive, cheerful and professional. A lovely room on the front on the ground floor but quiet, even on bonfire night! Evening meal was good too where we felt young and I'm 73. My Chinese duck hoisin spring rolls, venison bourgiognone with dauphinois potatoes were delicious but the apple strudel was soft and bland.... More
