Arrived early on Sunday afternoon, expecting a wait for our room, but no, shown straight to our room an hour before check in time. We had room 6 with sea view.....and what a view!! The complimentary cream tea in the lounge was very good, tea, jam and scones better than we had at The Dorchester. Dinner was excellent, we had... More

“What a view” I have to agree it never gets tired and always impresses. I’m delighted that you had such an enjoyable stay and was so well looked after. Chefs Cream Teas are certainly excellent, however very tempting, hence why we offer them to our guests upon arrival. Thank you for your review it really does help us to continue... More

We just got back from a very relaxing three night break away. The weather was changeable but we managed to get out into the spectacular countryside while the sun was out and holed up in the comfort of the hotel when the rain set in. The hotel has a leisurely and friendly vibe with the old fashioned personal service you... More

I've just returned from a lovely weekend at this lovely place. Really lovely people, we felt cared for and appreciated. It's a great place to walk from and even when it's wet and wild outside, it''s warm and cosy inside. We had one of the rooms on the front, looking out to see. We had a dinner, bed and breakfast...

My son and I have just stayed for a two night break. I wish I booked an extra night now as I could have easily enjoyed this beautiful hotel and it's scenery for longer. The staff were very welcoming and accomodating, something that I have found to be a rarity when travelling on my own with a child. The food... More

It's really difficult to keep this review short and sweet when there are so many things to list that led to us having the best weekend away we've had in a while. The staff were pleasant and friendly and couldn't do enough for us, even allowing a cream tea to be delivered to our room and collected the tray afterwards.... More
