This delightfully positioned, family owned and managed hotel continues to impress. The views across the Torridge estuary to Appledore and out to sea are first rate - a beach facing room is recommended. We stayed for 2 nights on D, B and B terms and enjoyed all meals. The wine list was varied and offered decent value.

What a lovely hotel. Lovely staff with a beautiful view. They even let us park our minibus in the car park free of charge, unfortunately you do not see generosity like that very often. Highly recommended and a big thank you.

On both days I went to the hotel for morning coffee and pastry and returned at lunch... More

All areas inside and outside the hotel are immaculate and the views of the beach... More

I stayed here last week with my husband and my parents, we had a lovely time. Our rooms were spotlessly clean and well laid out with plenty of space, a lovely bathroom with a walk in shower, we had a fabulous view across to Appledore. We were treated to some excellent food in the evenings and breakfast was fantastic. All... More

A. Great hotel from the outside looks a little old fashioned but not at all inside. Lovely rooms especially the estuary facing rooms with balconies. The staff were great nothing too much trouble and very welcoming thanks to Kelly and her colleague in the bar. Great breakfast. Will definitely return.

Losing count of the number of excellent meals we have had here! Visited for a birthday this time. First class food and service as usual. Lundy sole was delicious. Gary and James are great hosts. Can always recommend this hotel.
