We really wanted to love this hotel as the location is spot on and the marketing promised so much. It was the finale treat for our honeymoon. However, we have never been so disappointed. The rooms aren't very well sound proofed which meant that the noisy fellow guests thundering down the corridors shouting at their children woke us early in... More

A special hotel with a fantastic location and excellent food. Above all it is the staff who really make this place great, from the front desk to the waiting and bar staff. They are caring, professional and flexible and really seem to want you to have a great holiday. The only downside (hence not 5/5) is that it is a... More

Took family here for lunch following a long walk on the costal path. Great spot on the deck overlooking Southsands beach on the end table that suits a larger party. Service was warm and welcoming and the menu varied but I would comment that this is overpriced and very small portions particularly if you are hungry after a walk. Three... More

The hotel is very smart looking and in an enviable position right on south sands beach. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and have been well thought out. During our stay it was very noisy due to the number of children staying during the summer holidays, children running up and down and knocking on our doors, not ideal when... More

The location is good but for what is offered... it is well over priced. Much of the staff are young and need more training. Restaurant could have a longer menu (not much offered) but the service needs addressing. After waiting nearly an hour to be served the first course...and continually being told "it's on it's way"..... we got up and... More

We booked a last minute night away in a room facing the rear of the hotel. It did not matter though. Our room was very comfortable and we were given a great table with a sea view for our dinner with our friends. The staff on the telephone were very helpful when making our last minute booking. We were extremely... More

Couldnt agree less with the previous 2 reviews. Warm reception on arrival from the front desk, and taken swiftly to our table. Sat outside on the Deck on a beautiful sunny day. The "Deck" outside was full and inside restaurant was also busy. A real buzz and ambience about the place. Tastefully decorated, with quality furnishings - a real oasis.... More

Saved up for months in order to take my mum to this beautiful hotel. I booked on booking.com and then rang the hotel to double check that the room booked could be made a double. I was kindly advised that it couldn't and that the only room that could be was a dragon room. I paid the £200 extra with... More
