We stayed here 2 nights (B+B) in August because it was recommended to us by someone living locally. We were not disappointed. Indeed our expectations were surpassed. The hotel is a farm redevelopment which adds to the experience. It was exceptionally clean everywhere. The room we had (No;1) was very spacious. It included a large bed, small table and two... More

We chose a sea view room and were worried when we arrived as the room was but a few yards from the main road. However, we need not have worried as... More

Most of the hotel's rooms are set back from the main road, affording a good night's sleep. Our only complaint was... More

Within 15 minutes of us checking in there was a knock at our door and one of the staff was there with a complimentary bottle... More

The restaurant has very high standards and the food is superb. Staff and family are very welcoming and I would find it difficult to... More

We stayed at this hotel in one of the mezzanine rooms and it was lovely. It was the first time my partner and son had been in that area and they can't wait to go back. The rooms were beautiful, very quiet and clean. The staff were extremely friendly and the food was just gorgeous. We ate in the restaurant... More
