We visited the restaurant last Thursday evening at around 18:00 and were told that the inside was full but we could use the Terrace. Although it was a bit windy they put the heaters on which certainly helped. We like Italian food and the menu was more than tempting. Our selection was served quickly and in a very friendly manner.... More

The view itself is spectacular, as is the food. We were looking for somewhere special to enjoy our last honeymoon meal when we happened across this hotel-restaurant. Clearly popular with locals and tourists alike, although no table was available we were offered service in the garden so that we could enjoy the views. The food did take it's time to... More

Perfect location to enjoy a week in Cornwall. We have surfed (beach 2 minutes away), SUP'd, cycled, Segwayed, jet skied and visited King Arthur's castle, all fuelled by the delicious breakfast served with ocean views. (The kids loved the gym and sauna on site which we used before breakfast.) Brilliant value for money, I doubt you will beat these prices... More

My partner and I spent two nights here last week, and would like to say what a fabulous friendly place this is, we can,t wait to go back. The views from our room, the restaurant and the terrace were breathtaking. The walks along the coast path are literally on the doorstep, 20 mins down into Bude itself. We stayed in... More

We spent a night here during a recent trip. The location is beautiful, with a really nice cliff walk accessible across the road. The room however was very small, with possibly the smallest bathroom I've ever been in. I'm guessing the bathrooms were retrofitted to the rooms at some stage.

We stayed here for one night as part of a short break down to Devon and Cornwall, I wanted to try at least one independent hotel as we normally elect to stay at chains, especially in Cornwall, as its very hard to find a decent and affordable place to stay down there. Anyway first of all the location is excellent,... More

It was awful to dine and the food was low standard, not very hygienic in the restaurant and the manner of the staff was awful to my friends and family which I was very angry about. Talking about the way my family look. The service was poor and very long to get food. Also my room was the most smallest... More

The owners in this hotel made the stay really excellent, they showed an interest in what we were doing and offered useful advice. When we arrived there were lots of diners arriving from outside the hotel (the food is very good!) but they made sure we still got a good table, so all round we felt very welcome. The location...

We stayed for just one night earlier this month, while viewing properties to buy in the local area. The Hotel manager was in reception when we arrived and also first thing following morning. A very friendly, helpful man, full of information about the local area! The bed was amazingly comfortable! The room was clean and tidy and also included a... More
