We spent 3 nights in a family garden room with sea view. The room was spacious and comfortable. Big bathroom though it was the only part that was not renovated. The hotel itself was lovely, perfect size so intimate enough but still allowing enough privacy and without being overbearing. The service was great, personal and attentive. On our first morning...

The location is central to the success of this fabulous hotel, along with the fabulous staff. Nothing was too much trouble and they were keen to cater to our every whim. The room was great, although we did feel we were missing out on a sea view- next time! Would definitely recommend, especially if you are looking for a hotel... More

This really is a lovely hotel in an absolutely gorgeous location. It's been refurnished relatively recently and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Great food too. We had a garden room which. Was absolutely lovely, but I imagine that the sea view rooms are equally beautiful. Recommended.

We are quite fussy. Every expectation was met, every need catered for. Our experience was enhanced by very pleasant friendly staff who were unobtrusive and without exception helpful. Wonderful views, comfortable & spacious room with very pleasant patio area. Superb shower room, spotlessly clean & with lovely soft towels. A joy to have fresh milk easily available in our room...

Our rating is the result of a blend. The 5 star elements are: (1) The setting is beautiful. High, with the views out to sea. It feels remote as you rattle down the 2 miles or so of narrow road, leaving mobile reception behind you, eventually sweeping up the driveway . (2) The restaurant is a lovely large relaxed modern...
