Travelled with Alfa. Stayed at Hotel from 11th October 2014 to 15th October 2014. Staff friendly and helpful. Room was adequate for a single person. room 400. hotel is a bit dated but none the less a good place to stay if exploring the North Devon area. Looking to return for another stay through Alfa again, possibly in May 2015.

Booked this hotel at the last minute after reading a few reviews on here. The hotel itself is fairly basic but was very clean and within a few yards of the beach. We didn't eat or drink here so I can't comment on that. The room we had was a twin on the 3rd floor. There's one lift in the... More

The staff were efficient and friendly. Sometimes reception was unmanned for short periods which was a bit frustrating. Food was very good and varied. The service was,on the whole, excellent....
