Great hotel .. serviced by local amenities that is fabulous beach walks and restaurants. Staff very friendly with a great view of the sea/ estuary. Parking was limited but we dumped the car first day and used our feet.. walking and cycling around the local area very beautiful to get out from the city.

The room was right at the top of the building but there was a lift, albeit a very 'cosy' one. The room was clean, and well appointed but due to... More

Lovely hotel, with wonderful views over Exmouth and the sea. The room was spotless, the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was very enjoyable. The on-site car parking was very limited, and the roads around seemed quite busy - get there early. Perfect location for a stroll along the sea front. There is a lift up from the carpark, and...

The hotel was clean and well situated, the hotel car park was quite small but there was free street parking available. The staff were friendly, we enjoyed the breakfast, however the bed was very uncomfortable but on the upside we almost got wet in the shower!
