Our first visit to the area, the hotel is as most people say, stuck in the 70's, our room had a sea view, we made use of the spa, the lady who gave me a facial and back massage was very good, one of the best I've had. The pool was small, but warm and perfectly adequate. The evening meal... More

Couldn't ask for more, really! Our welcome was warm, and all the staff were always polite and helpful. Delicious food, excellent local produce. Afternoon tea - what a treat! Our rooms were comfy and clean, always attended to carefully, with beautiful views of the estuary. Walking was slightly challenging(!), but who's in a hurry anyway? The weather was sunny and... More

The cooked breakfast is particularly good and the evening meals are also highly recommended with... More

This is a lovely hotel in a wonderful location. I went over the August bank holiday weekend. The staff were most accommodating, the service was brilliant. The food was lovely especially the breakfasts which were cooked to order a mark of a good hotel

Views amazing and coastal walks within easy reach without any driving. The building is a perhaps a little dated, but clean and well docorated throughout, with attractive art works dotted around. The bar area fetaures a... More

We use this as our special hideaway from the world once or twice per year, and if I am on business in Plymouth. As you crest the estuary from Marlborough on the narrow winding road on a sunny day, the view is always breathtaking and like entering another most beautiful world, that is very special. The hotel location is unique... More

From the front it does not look so inviting with the very bright blue awning and signs but once inside one discovers a really pleasant hotel. We had a balcony room on the first floor over looking the sea. The room was well furnished, really comfortable bed, large... More
