This is found at the end of a rutted and narrow road but is worth the journey because the setting is lovely, staff are in the main friendly and helpful and our room was excellent (a semi-suite of two rooms). The meal we had in the evening was a bit pricey as the portions weren't huge but breakfast was good... More

If you are the type of person who likes top class service, excellent food, a touch of luxury and an amazing location, this is the place for you.

This is the place to get away from everything. Even in a dark October, the position was fantastic.This is a low-profile mostly single-floor hotel almost on the cliff edge over looking a small cove on the south Devon coast. Access is advertised as challenging - well the last 100 yards are a bit rough (not the Hotel's fault), but the... More

Our 3 for 2 offer was indeed a view popular deal and I hope that after such a enjoyable stay we can welcome you back again. More

Such a well hidden stunning location as you arrive off the lane. Hotel is modern and has such fabulous views! We had a very comfortable room with lovely sea views and it's own little patio. Well appointed with a modern bathroom, would like some lighting around the dressing table to do makeup though!! All the staff were very friendly and... More

The location is amazing, very friendly & helpful staff, swimming pool is very clean & warm. The room was large & we did pay extra for a sea view room and definitely worth it.

Fantastic weekend at the hotel. Staff were friendly, extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble which helps when travelling with a young baby. Food was delicious, adventurous and filling!

This was our fourth stay here we had a sea view room. The rooms are a really good size with lovely decor & had everything we could want, even to supplying a jug of fresh milk each day. Nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast choice was good, fresh fruit, cereals, english cooked breakfast & fish dishes. In our experience... More

Booked a short break here in June. Room was very spacious but it was difficult to close the patio door. Ventilation was poor and could be improved only by leaving the patio door open - a distinct security risk when away from the room. No refrigerator in bedroom & the reluctance of the hotel to provide long life milk sachets... More

Thank you for taking the time and leaving a review. I’m sorry if you found there to be a lack of ventilation in your room, all our patio doors have security latches enabling you to open without a security risk, we tend to rely of the lovely sea breeze to ventilate the rooms however fans are also available if required....

Just what we needed! A superb nights entertainment, as we entered the sumptuous lounge the group of male singers the old gaffers, sang shanty songs interspersed with hilarious banter. For dinner we had a delicious seafood chowder and lobster surf and turf, followed by a perfect vanilla pannacotta. Our room had a very comfortable bed with plenty of space and... More

Overall our two nights stay did not live up the expectations at almost £250 a night. There are amazing views from the 'sea view' rooms, the lounge and the dinning room. However, the bathroom was in serious need of updating, the shower temperature changed from scorching hot to freezing cold several times during a short shower, there was no up... More

I’m incredibly disappointed that we have not lived up to your expectations! I’m somewhat surprised by some of the comments made as we have had a very successful 2014.
