This was a coach holiday with Alpha Holidays. I was very pleased with my single room. Everything I needed except that it was a bit gloomy, as the room faced North. A more powerful reading light would have been useful. I was pleased to have sheet and blankets, not a duvet. I didn't like the evening meals. I thought all... More

A group of 4 of us have just returned from this lovely seafront hotel. Although quite dated it was clean, warm and the food (vegetarian) was very good. Adrian our waiter looked after us very well indeed. The entertainment was good. I had a single room and although the views weren't great the room was perfectly adequate. I did have... More

This was our second visit to this hotel. We love the location and town. We had a problem with the first room but were quite happy with the alternative room offered. Food was good and our waiter first class. We had problems with the heating whilst we were there but eventually it got sorted. The pillows weren't brilliant on our... More

Ricardo and Carla in the bar were always friendly and efficient, just a shame there was no cider available (in Devon?!). Good entertainment, yes you could here it in your room but it finished...

Just come back from 5 days at the Cavendish. We were not the easiest bunch to accommodate as my husband is disabled. We travelled with our two daughters and their husbands. Firstly our coach driver Lawrence was an absolute gem keeping us entertained with his "absolutely true - would I tell you a lie" stories and his excellent driving, he... More

Amazing, spotlessly clean, well run hotel in stunning location. Can't think of any down side to this hotel - sheer perfection in every way! All the staff were efficient, hard working, friendly & good humoured; a special mention goes to Tracey for her brilliant sense of humour. Lisa is an absolutely delightful Manager who is there, when/if needed, whilst not... More

The entertainment varied ,the first night was the best night, the lounge was a bit on the small side to... More
