The Woodlands Hotel was a great place to stay for the whole family; Megan and Dan were very nice, the food was wonderful and it was not far from the beach. The room was very comfortable and I love the touches Megan and Dan added. Also, love the honesty bar!

Having arrived at this wonderful property, we were given a very warm, family welcome. Me and my wife stayed here for two nights and would highly recommend it. The rooms were of a very high standard, as was the breakfast and evening meal. It has a fantastic location and is only a 5 minute walk from the town. We will... More

My parent have been to this hotel and asked me to say how wonderful it was. The owners made them feel very welcome and all the hotel facilities were of a high standard. An excellent base and one they will definately return to.

Lovely stay, thank you for the small things about the house that creates the feel of a home. I look forward to seeing the gardens in a few years time. To do what you have acheived in 1 year is a miracle. Thank you again.

Dan and Megan combine with the rest of the family and staff to make this Hotel so welcoming and relaxing. Nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is clean and bright with lots of character. The new patio is a quiet and relaxing place to have pre dinner drinks, post dinner coffee or to just sit and relax. The rooms... More

Large property, friendly hosts who went out their way to enhance your stay. We did bed and breakfast, I found my full English delicious, with my wife having her favourite porridge. We booked late so had one of the smaller rooms, but this was ideal for our needs. The hotel has a family feel to it, and you soon feel... More
