4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were lucky to get a room booking close to Easter weekend. The large sea-view room we hoped for was sold out, so we took their small double. It was clean and recently updated, and had the basics you'd like in a room (closet, coffee maker, toiletries, towels). It's an old building, so there was a very slight slant to... More

Got to this hotel and did not like the room, asked for an upgrade to something bit bigger with a better view, guy on duty upgraded for us and at no extra cost. Can't fault this place, would not hesitate to stay again. Room was nice and clean, bed very comfortable and evening meal was great and all staff very... More

Stayed for one night on a whim and would definitely return. Hotel decor is very fun and interesting (even down to the fish tags on room keys), room was clean and well maintained, food fresh and tasty and the staff very pleasant. Continental breakfast would be improved with some more options e.g. yoghurts, muffins - but the cooked options were... More

Hotel was clean, modern, great facilities and decor and good value for money. Breakfast was great but didn't eat in the restaurant at night so Can't comment. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone who is going to bude. Keep up the good work

We stayed at Tommy Jacks during Easter break for two nights. The food and the service was great but unfortunately our room was very noisy at night, possibly because it was right next to some fan/boiler/heating facility etc. Even using earplugs did not help. We did not make a big deal of it as our stay was short. But if... More

From the minute you arrive Tommy Jacks has that certain something, the surfing / beachside theme is carried through the decor with interest in every part of the building. In the main bar area there's three amazing fish tanks, including one rockpool, amazing surfing pictures and surf & skate boards all over the place. The rooms really vary in size... More

Tommy Jacks is a bit of a mixed bag. First, the location is superb. It is a 60 second walk to the beach (which is stony if the tide is in, and gloriously sandy if the tide is out). The hotel is a fifteen minute easy going walk from Bude town centre. I don't know if there are rooms on... More

We stayed at Tommy Jacks whilst visiting friends in Bude. I had asked for a room with a sea view, which I had assumed would be a superior room as the website indicates that the standard doubles don't have a sea view. I think in hindsight I was given a standard room (although it did have a sea view) because... More

Our friends from Launceston reserved a table at Life's a Beach for Easter Sunday evening only to find them closed when we arrived at the appointed hour. A quick meeting to decide an alternative produced Tommy Jacks. Our first visit and certainly will not be our last. Fabulous menu, friendly staff and a well laid out bar and restaurant.
