Just returned from a fabulous weekend stay at The Ness who were catering for my cousin’s wedding celebrations. Arriving the day before, our party of 5 were all instantly delighted with the setting and the individuality of our spotless rooms overlooking the sea and with the hotel decor in general. The staff made us feel very special from the moment... More

My family stayed here fifteen years ago before it was a chain and was so disapointed when we came back that the homely feel has gone and although still nice, it has the feeling of a chain of hotels a bit impersonal was so lovely before

Well what a change from the beautiful hotel and restaurant it was back in 2003., sadly now a chain...food average and boring menu. Shame as we spent our engagement and honeymoon there when it was faultless back in 2003...very sad.

Ten of us visited the Ness pub for a family 70th birthday meal. On arrival the gentleman behind the bar was very friendly and helpful. The pub's setting and the pub itself are very beautiful, but the same cannot be said for the food. My sirloin steak in particular (priced at £14:95)was appalling - I asked for it medium rare...

My boyfriend and I visited the Ness for Dinner one Wednesday evening, we really enjoyed the Ness but as we were so full after our meals we only managed a 2 course, mind you we popped in the following for a pudding :) The waiter was delightful and very polite. The Evening was beautiful! The Broccoli and blue cheese soup... More

A really lovely pub cum restaurant cum hotel. Beautifully decorated for Christmas and warm and welcoming. With stunning views there is nothing not to like. The rooms were in an annex and were huge. The bed was big and comfortable with lovely clean white crisp sheets. Decorated like a beach hut which added to the ambience. There was a good... More

After deciding to take a short weekend break, we could not have asked for a better location. Beautiful sites from the hotel, excellent service, great room, felt like we were pampered & have booked again for next year.
