This is a lovely place to stay, all staff are really friendly. Tony is amazing, welcoming and attentive. Breakfast was delicious, kids loved the chocs in the room. Room big, clean, warm and welcoming. We will be back soon

This is a cross between a manor house and Fawlty Towers.....but I enjoyed it. It is clean, has a huge breakfast selection and great views. Not a place for a romantic retreat though!...its rather basic and needs a bit of money spent on it. It is a walkers hotel. The room I had was overlooking the sea, however had only... More

We visited this hotel as part of a walking group in August and were pleasantly surprised by the space and comfort of the house. Our room was large and airy with a wonderful view of the sea and beach. We slept with the sound of the sea gently breaking on the shingle. The food was wonderful, the buffet breakfast very... More

Working for a hotel booking agency I was a bit wary of what the hotel would be like. Arriving at the hotel staff were very accommodating, confirmation from laterooms.com stated check in at 10.00 we were told at the reception desk this was not the case. Check in was at 14.00, one of the rooms was ready so we were... More

We swept up the lovely drive to a striking hotel prominent right on the cliff edge overlooking the sea. Lovely location. A bit unclear where the car park was but found it eventually. Check in was a little bit unconventional as the manager wasn't around to greet us, but found our room via an envelope left in reception. Met the... More

We stayed at the freshwater bay for two nights in June. The hotel is situated high on the cliffs above the beach, it is prominent and views are spectacular. As you drive into the grounds there is a lawn tennis court, croquet lawn, heated outdoor swimming pool, table football and children's play area. Parking is enclosed and secluded and within... More

We were staying not far away but while on a walk popped our heads in to check out this hotel to see if we might stay here in the future. At reception we were greeted by a smiling man who could not have been more help to us and he was keen to show us one of the rooms. We... More

Recently stayed for a week on the HF family walking holiday. Large comfortable rooms with excellent views of the bay. Excellent breakfasts and packed lunch. Usually about four choices of starters and mains for evening meals. Service was very quick and attentive without being intrusive. Very friendly bar staff. My only gripe was that the showers were sometimes cold and... More

I recently organised a reception at fairly short notice for the attendees of my father's funeral whilst also staying at the hotel with my family. I cannot praise the staff highly enough for making our stay with them so relaxing given the circumstances of our visit. The manager Tony and his staff were both friendly, courteous and professional - the... More
