“Beautiful restaurant, beautiful food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Came here while in the area on a short break, after reading reviews on trip advisor.
Would definitely recommend the restaurant and would certainly visit again if in the area.
There was a slight mix up with our table after being seated but must say the lady in charge went out of her way to accommodate us and make it up to us, but it really wasn't a problem for us, we weren't in a hurry, just enjoyed a drink in the bar. Great customer service! Thank you.
Food was really delicious, would recommend the spinach ravioli, tastiest I have eaten! and would definitely recommend the prosecco!
The restaurant is very well decorated and relaxing too. Great daytime/early evening views if you get the window seat. Pleasurable evening. Definitely worth eating here.

We were at the restaurant in Sept. We were advised to pre book, which was right. When we arrived the welcome was very warming and the decor is very modern. We were shown to our table which had a sea view. The food was very impressive and delicious. My husband said the calamari starter was to die for. The whole experience of our night was tremendous. We will return when we are in Bude again and would highly reccommend to anyone.

Had a lovely stay here, a friendly & welcoming place.
Views extensive & picturesque.
Ample free parking.
Outdoor seating areas good.
Bar area modern & Bright
Breakfast good selection.
Beds amazingly comfortable, so soft.
Cleanliness excellent

A very enjoyable stay would recommend.

The only downside to this B & B is the water pressure which is very low.

A walk into the centre of Bude took us approximately 30 - 45 minutes form this B & B.

Came across Elements by mistake, but we're glad we did. The staff were extremely accommodating and friendly, and the family room we stayed in was spotless and well appointed. Super view at breakfast, with good food. Really hope to back soon.

We stayed in a family room for a long weekend and were very comfortable. The room itself was big enough for our double bed plus a bunk bed and travel cot and had enough storage. We also had a lovely view of the sea from our bed!
The bathroom was warm and we all enjoyed lovely hot baths after swimming in the very chilly sea!!
Our sons loved playing with in the outdoor space whilst we had a drink from the bar and enjoyed the sunset from the terrace. They were also pleased to find (as were we!) that there was a selection of toddler books and toys available to borrow. This was particularly useful at breakfast time.
Breakfast were a highlight, eaten overlooking the sea. We both chose Full English, fresh and hot and not greasy and lovely big pot of tea.
Elements is in an amazing location and it seems that the hotel are making the most of it by keeping things simple. Comfortable rooms and great food with enough to keep the kids entertained so that you can just sit back and soak up the view.
Well done Elements. We'll definitely be back!

Arrived as the kitchen was closing and thought I was going to have to go into town to eat. I was wrong I was checked in and my order taken so I could freshen up and eat. The hotel is in a superb location with stunning views over the countryside and sea. Comfortable clean rooms good food and good value. Will stay again.
