We stayed here for 2 nights in September. We stayed in a balcony suite which had the most amazing view! Our suite had 2 bedrooms so that would be great for families with children! The balcony was private and we left our doors open all day and night as to hear the sound of the waves crashing against the shore below. Because we had such an amazing room and view, we ate just about all of our meals through room service on our balcony--we had amazing weather during out stay! The food was 'ok'-maybe 3 stars.
The bathroom was very nice! There was a MASSIVE walk in shower, large enough to fit about 10 people! There was also a seperate, deep bath tub, 2 sinks, and heated flooring. The bathroom looked as if it were brand new. We had an electric fire place in our room, and large canopy bed in the main bedroom and 2 twin beds in the second bedroom. The seperate bedroom also had it's own window and tv.
There is a lovely spa in the hotel which was being renovated during our stay so we did not get to fully use this, but will do on our next visit! The hotel staff were friendly. The hotel is very dog friendly and they will supply food for your dog, treats, dog bed/bowls, etc. There are some nice walks around the hotel and I believe the beach outside the hotel attracts a lot of surfers. The beach is also dog friendly!!
Overall, we spent just under £1,000.00 for 2 people/1 dog, 2 nights stay, eating most of our meals through room service on our private balcony. The hotel is a bit dated in some places, but they are doing a lot of remodeling which is bringing the hotel up to date and it looks great!
If you're in the area, this is a great place to stay and I would recommend getting a room with a view! The waves are quite loud crashing below, but I found this to be very very relaxing! After my stay, I actually went out to buy a sound cd of waves to help sleep upon going home to London! However, I can appreciate that perhaps some people may not like the 'noise'. So it is worth saying that the back of the hotel is facing the coast, the front is facing a field so would probably be more quiet, but you would miss out on the amazing view!
