4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Lovely food, lovely views, great place if you just want a drink. If you want lunch with a sea view book a table in the bar area but it can get a bit crowded otherwise use the dining room which is spacious and attractive. The food is delicious and they serve big portions!

Just returned from a 7-day stay in this lovely, stylish hotel. The room (no. 17) was very nice – clean, a good size, a comfortable bed and with great views of the beach. The staff were all friendly, helpful and professional which made for a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. We enjoyed the breakfast, and the lunches and dinners were also... More

We just had one night here, wish we could have stayed longer. Room, at front, was fabulous. Immaculately clean, very comfortable & we could hear & see the sea from the window. The manager was really lovely as we're all of the staff we met. Everyone was very friendly & helpful. We ate here in the evening & that also... More

We visited here for a weekend away. We had the last room Sadly so no sea view. Room was very clean and bathroom newly refurbished. Decor was quite dated but okay. I loved the honesty box in the room :) very quiet at night considering the pub downstairs. Bed was a tiny double! Not much room. Breakfast was not great.... More

Popped in for a quick drink after viewing an art exhibition at the venue. The bar and hotel were of a good standard . The pub was full so we eat on the benches outside overlooking the seafront. Nice looking pub and hotel.

What a lovely place. Apart from the initial mix up with our booking which they very swiftly put right with an apology, I was really pleased with our stay. The rooms were lovely and comfortable and the dressing gowns provided were a nice touch. The breakfast was lovely with local products and 'proper' sausages. We also ate in the restaurant... More
