This hotel takes some finding but it is well worth the effort. The welcome to say the least was friendly, the staff particularly Paul are very warm and laid back but offer such a good product. Views are just amazing, beds are so comfortable and the rooms are very well furnished and attractive. I haven't got to the food yet... More

We stayed for three nights in early May. The room we booked had a patio and great view - unfortunately the weather did not cooperate (too cold and windy) otherwise it would have been great to sit out with a drink and enjoy the view. The room was comfortable and had all amenities and the staff were all very friendly.... More

Stayed for two nights for our wedding anniversary, and couldn't have been more pleased. This hotel has an informal, relaxed feel, pleasant staff without being overbearing, and a nice feel to the restaurant, with none of the usual pretentious nonsense that comes with a Michelin star.

Just back from a long weekend to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. We wanted to be a bit more extravagant than we would usually be and hoped that we would not regret it. We did not. Driftwood is relaxed, very friendly and knowledgeable staff, in a fantastic location overlooking a secluded beach (we had lovely room with sea views) and... More

We arrived at Driftwood for some much needed R&R, this place is absolutely amazing, the place is unbelievable, immaculately presented whilst still feeling relaxed and informal. We arrived early and were given coffee by the owner and were then shown around, such amazing views, you can just drift away looking out of the window, we were lucky enough to have... More

We visited the Driftwood for dinner twice last week. We only intended to go once but the food was so spectacular that we cancelled our other reservation and returned. Lovely ambience, relaxed but very professional and proper. Would be delighted to stay there. The food was a revelation - well worth a michelin star. It manages to be foodie but... More

We stayed here in early March and arrived on a cold and windy Friday afternoon, but the warm and intimate welcome we received more than made up for this and set the precident for what would be the most outstanding stay. From start to finish we never wanted for anything, the service was the best I have received in any... More

I was very lucky to be treated for the second year running by my lovely daughter. From the moment you arrive you know that you are somewhere special. The hotel is beautiful, tastefully furnished and the surroundings are breathtakingly lovely. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly attentive staff. We enjoyed one of the tasting menus for dinner and... More

We arrived to glorious sunshine. Paul greeted us well and happy. He gave us an individual tour of the hotel!!!! Never have we experienced this before, and I may say What a lovely experience. A sneaky glass of wine as we find the most beautiful situated room we have ever experienced (Room 8). We stayed with a 12 year old!!!!... More

Our second visit to the Driftwood for a meal with family. The quality of the food, its presentation and service were all top class. I would have no hesitation in recommending the restaurant to others and I expect the hotel is every bit as good. Great evening ! We will definitely be back in the future.
