From the moment I booked this break for me and my girlfriend, I knew we were in for a treat. Although the booking process was much more laidback than I am accustomed to, it really set the scene for a relaxing holiday with all our needs catered for.
The hotel is located a stone’s throw from the beach providing glorious views of the sea; Caldey Island and St. Catherine’s Island. Hotel parking is limited, but there is a secure seafront car park a very short walk up the road. We paid £15 for 4 days (3 nights) which allowed us to come and go as we pleased.
We had booked a sea view and weren’t disappointed, splendid! The room was the perfect size with a perfect sized en-suite. The room did get a little chilly at times, when the wind blew, but nothing to really complain about. Plus, there was a heater in the room in case the chill was too much and a blanket in the wardrobe.
The breakfasts were really one of the decision makers for our stay and they did not disappoint. Although the presentation and the dining room was not really my cup of tea, the breakfasts were just delicious, accompanied with a fantastic sea view each morning. I don’t mean to labour the point, but the breakfasts were prefect to set us up for long day of site seeing and considerably better than other hotel and B&B breakfasts that I have had in the past.
Throughout our stay the service was… spot… on! The hostess (who unfortunately we don’t know the name of) and her family were really friendly and helpful.
