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.

Breakfast was just as good and as we checked out after two nights they said our room needed a little updating so reduced the price by 40 % , room looked... More

Walking the South West Coast Path was pleasantly surprised when I came upon The Ness, situated right on the path. I was impressed by the position of my room with balcony overlooking the estuary. Room overall was good but in need of minor repairs here and there. Good selection of Badger Ales , which should be a given, and good... More
