Difficult at first to make a choice between this one and the two others on sandbanks....do not hesitate ...go for this one! What views from the terrace..... We had a room with a harbour view and it was just wonderful to draw back the curtains on the morning and see the boats bobbing about in the sunshine. Staff were excellent... More

I love this restaurant great for lunch on a sunny day can't beat the views but the service could be better. Very slow to take orders and when the food came up order was wrong but had waited too long so just accepted what came.

Nice hotel, staff attentive, prawn & crab sandwiches to die for, it was unfortunate that we didn't have a pick of where to sit outside due to the staff busying around us to prepare for a more 'important' function(s). Parking is a bit of s problem.

we had booked for afternoon tea - had specified that one member was gluten free, and two veg. We initially ordered two traditional afternoon tea and asked the waitress to include two extra scones. The tier came but no gluten free scones - nor any gluten free sandwiches - so we waited and it finally came which was all fine.... More

Lovely setting with super views. Good food with polite serving staff. Parking can be difficult but off road is ok. White tablecloths would make a difference to the look of the room as I feel it looks a tad drab. Despite that I will certainly take friends there again as the decking area is lovely.

Three for us stayed a couple of nights and really enjoyed the experience. We had great weather over the two days, just perfect for the location and views. The other good thing was the service, everyone was very attentive and friendly. We had four meals at the hotel and couldn't complain about the food. The hotel also has a very... More

On arrival we were welcomed efficiently and pleasantly. We had one of the best 2 rooms in the hotel, for which you pay a premium. The room was large with a superking bed. 2 comfortable chairs, a sofa - which is also a sofa-bed. TV, Fridge, complimentary bottle of red wine and coffee, tea and biscuits and water. The views...
