Spent the Bank Holiday here and was most impressed. Our rooms were beautiful, spotlessly clean and had wonderful views. All the meals we tried were delicious.Marion, Steve and staff were very helpful and friendly and we can't wait to go back.

The staff were welcoming and obliging and service was quick. The food was great and plentiful. Both me and my husband would recommend... More

Just eaten at the Buccaneer. If you go and Liver is on the specials board trust me order it. The liver is cooked beautifully and the onion gravy is perfect. See you next time I'm down Steve. Bob

Warning is though can be a complete sun trap and you will burn. Excellent for chilling and so comfortable found it hard to move anywhere after.... More
