We have been to the Wreckers at Hartland Qyay a couple of times now and it never disappoints. Simply breathtaking location, steeped in history. I really feel like I have stepped back in time whenever I go, its almost like a secret cove. It is a wonderful slice of England untouched by the rash of trendyification going on in many... More

I stayed here for one night on my way to Lundy. I would have been a great spot for watching the sunset if not for the fog! The hotel itself is quite old fashioned but was clean and comfy and had free wifi. The breakfast was a little limited for the size I the hotel, but did the job. The... More

We have been coming to the Hartland Quay Hotel on and off for 23 years. Perfect for us with its solitary location, lovely walks and spectacular views. It's an ancient smugglers inn that still holds much of that old world charm. The friendly, attentive staff and equally friendly village locals make this place very special to us. The rooms are...

We stayed for a long weekend after a recommendation from some friends. We weren't t looking forward to it after reading some reviews but our friends had booked it and we didn't want to let them down. We knew it would be a bit dated do weren't so disappointed to find it so but the buildings are old and the... More

Returned in stormy weather and this is a WONDERFUL place to be in rough weather. Staff are so very friendly and the rooms are immaculately clean and warm even in inclement weather. Owners so friendly and it cascades down to every staff member, they are all absolutely lovely xxx

People matter to the staff of this hotel and they go out of their way to look after you. Fantastic views, unfussy food and perfectly adequate hotel facilities make this the perfect place for a switch off. Don't tell everyone!

Clean rooms, decent grub, nice scenery, friendly & helpful staff. You really must try this place for yourself - it's so much greater than the sum of its parts. It's quite simply a magical place that you will want to return to time & again.

I was on the way home from a break in Cornwall and ventured out of my way for lunch at the hotel, it is at the bottom of a very steep cliff. I stayed there a couple of years ago. The menu is fairly basic, but the food is delicious, reasonably priced and good sized portions. After a walk up... More

Siting in the bar as I write this, stranded by the weather on our way to lundy. The greeting has been superb, the food is good value pub grub, but most important is the atmosphere. It's as if we have walked into an extended family's lunchtime, an elderly lady has trapped her hand in the door and is being treated... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of September for a romantic break. The hotel is in a wonderful location with some unique history and artefacts. the beach is rugged and beautiful. The hotel is right on some walking routes and we had a lovely exerting 8 mile walk to Hartland Point Lighthouse. The village of Hartland is... More
