We booked two nights in The Beach as it was reputedly the best hotel in Bude. First impressions were good, great welcome from reception, stylish looking room and the hotel positioned in the centre of town over looking Summerleaze beach. From here on in it started to unravel, poor bar service, long wait to eat in the restaurant, room much... More

A gorgeous hotel in a perfect location, very close to the town for restaurants and shops and within just a few minutes you are walking along the coast surrounded by countryside! Restaurant food was delicious and breakfast was also really good, very spacious room (we booked deluxe) which also had a private terrace area. We will definitely be back!

The location is amazing. We awoke to look out at the sea and the west coast walkers path. Really really idyllic. We climbed the hill opposite, walked across the beach and over to crook lets beach. I suspect in the height of summer this place is soooo different and any hope of relaxation is gone But out of season in... More

This small hotel is in a great location within easy walking distance of the shops and just round the corner from Summerleaze common and beaches. We had a de-luxe room and it was beautiful, fantastic sea view, lovely bathroom and large comfortable bed, one of the best rooms we have ever stayed in, overall very luxurious. The reception was warm... More

I stayed at this hotel for a short break with my daughter recently. We had a lovely break, our room was spacious although quite expensive with a sea view overlooking Summerleaze Beach. The hotel has a terrace which overlooks the beach, a real suntrap and great for cocktails at the end of the day, although it's very popular with non... More

Fantastic hotel.. clean, comfortable, good sized rooms (we went for a superior room with a sea view), fantastic location and an amazing restaurant as well. We ate the evening we arrived and benefited from a special guest priced set menu. The food was delicious and the service efficient and friendly. The only potential draw back is the that the bar...

We had some difficulty making a booking here as, given the ages of our children, the hotel would not allow them to stay in a room by themselves (even though the 2 rooms we booked were next to each other). I was told when I booked that the hotel has only recently started accepting children and this is reflected in... More

Cannot fault anything here. Modern, tasteful, clean. Staff always friendly and professional. Lovely casual smiley welcome and comfortable atmosphere. No pressure. Lovely quality essential oil hand soap and lotion in ladies! The young tall fair haired bar steward is up there with the best and sounds like Bear Grylls to me heehee! Food fantastic cooked from scratch by a chef,... More

We stayed for a weekend, whilst walking sections of the south west coastal path. Fantastic location / views over the beach and a property which has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. The service we received from the staff was exceptional, particularly when we raised a maintenance issue with one of our rooms, they could not have done... More

We had two deluxe double rooms for a week - both with sea view and balcony. On the positive side: - The staff were very friendly and enthusiastic. - Although not focused on being a family-oriented hotel, they coped fine with our young kids and did all they could to accommodate them. - The guest rooms were very nice with...
