We stayed in Beachcombers cottage at the end of July for a week. The standard of accommodation is truly second to none, and they have thought of every last detail. It was exceptionally hot while we were there, but there were electric fans provided in each bedroom, so that helped. The beds were firm but comfy, with nice white bedlinen.... More

Had a spa day with massage treatments.... one word to describe it.... AMAZING. The staff were friendly, the massage was perfection, so relaxing. The spa was great, hot tub was hot with lots of bubbles. Chilled, relaxed, happy day. Wish I could do it every week, if I could afford to I would, prices very reasonable.

Five of us went to go and get spa treatments here, but owing to a confusion with our booking only two of us could get them. This was fine, we think the confusion was our fault. However, the guy (the son) on reception let us all in to use the pool while two of us had treatments. He said nothing... More

This was our first visit to Whalesborough and it certainly lived up to our expectations. There is a reason that it gets so many top reviews - it is a very good complex in an ideal location. We had good weather and loved everything about the house ( calf house ) and the surroundings. All the amenities were first class... More
