Great location, busy by day and peaceful at night. Spotless and well kept accommodation supported by really attentive staff with all the room amenities you could ever want. "Superior" rooms are larger and have great views overlooking the golf course but smaller rooms are just as well kept and have the same amenities just no view. Food is great although... More

First up, the setting is just lovely. Away from the crowd but a lovely view. The weather was fine so we sat outside as a family with young children. Kids menu was the usual fare (I wish that restaurants offered smaller portions of what the parents eat!). One of us had a sea bream and rice dish which was very... More

We recently had dinner here and the food was not only really good quality but the choice was good for the kids. The staff were particularly friendly and helpful, especially Ben! The whole decor theme is all very eco friendly very educational for the kids. I could not recommend this place more

Pretty average, indifferent manager with no check out procedures. Dinner was a bit hit and miss with long delays waiting for food of varible quality. Our Bude friends were not that impressed as well, which is not a good reflextion of the hotel

We arrived a little early and reception checked that the room was ready for us, which it was. Staff were friendly and accommodating, and the food in the restaurant was lovely. My boys appreciated the 'surfer / skater dude' theme, and were happy that we had a 'family room', where they actually had a room to themselves, rather than sharing... More

When we first arrived we were told we could not check in till 3pm (it was about 1.45pm). We had no vehicle and had to call our friends to come back to pick us up. I have travelled extensively and stayed in all types of accomodation but never experienced such an off hand response to an early arrival. It was... More

I stayed here for three nights whilst visiting family & friends locally. The hotel is nicely decorated in a surfer style & is very pleasant. My room was pretty small, but perfectly adequate for one person & the bathroom was nice & quite large. Breakfast was lovely, plenty of choice & freshly cooked. Service was also pretty good. We ate...

Dear Maggie_May09London, Thank you for your recent review of Tommy Jacks. It sounds as though you had one of our 'compact rooms' that we offer. Although small, as you mention in your review it is perfectly adequate for one person. We use fresh local produce for our breakfast and believe this makes all the difference for the most important meal... More

Great hotel. wonderful location. 1 minutes walk to surfing beach and cafes and the wonderful Rosies Kitchen. 10 minutes walk to the Gem, Bude town. The hotel has great surfing decor with a friendly family atmosphere. Good breakfast and pub menu. My 10 year old Daughter loved it. The staff are great. I will Return.

An average property that has been marketed very well but doesn't really live up to the hype. Some great ideas and approach but lacked somewhat in actual atmosphere for reasons I cant really identify...all the elements of a beachside hotel seem to be there but maybe it was the people and atmosphere that hasn't got it going on.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Down by the dunes in Bude, you'll discover one of Cornwall's newest hotels - Tommy Jacks. A throwback to when surfers were kings and skaters ruled the world, Tommy Jacks is quite possibly, the grooviest urban beach hotel, bar and restaurant on the Cornish coast. The 21 cheery, pocket-friendly snooze pads are neat, nautical and available from January 2014. In the meantime you can earn your seaside stripes in the family-friendly Sea Jacks Restaurant and cosy brewpub. Just a stone's throw from Bude-iful Crooklets Beach, they're the ultimate surfside HQ. ... more   less
