4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Located just as you enter the town directly opposite the sea, with a small car park & a larger public one a few minutes walk away ( hotel will reimburse parking charge if staying overnight) Narrow stairs to reach the bedroom, which was nicely decorated and great use of space, clean, comfortable albeit a little small. Great view direct to... More

Not good, not terrible! Arrived and tried to order drinks but were told there was no diet coke/lemonade we asked what else was on offer and there was only fruit juices as non alcoholic alternatives. We had pre-booked for 6 people and all chose something we liked. The food is a good quality pub food but took over 40 minutes... More

Amazing place. Took our young, lively dog for a weekend and we were all really looked after. Dogs welcome but areas where not allowed so suit all. Rooms brilliant-spacious and clean with great facilities. Can't fault and would recommend and go back.

We've stayed here a few times and always have a good time. It's superbly situated and has a great bar and restaurant. Food is always superb as is breakfast. The hotel has had a refurb since last year which is welcome. There is an improvement in that we've stayed here so many times but that's never been recognised - I... More

We've stayed at The Pen many times over the years and the combination of delightful accommodation and magnificent views has always made it a joy to be there. Sadly, somehow, this time it all went slightly awry. Firstly we couldn't get into the hotel car park. It's small and parking there has always been a bit of a lottery, but... More

I stayed in the Cambria room, think room 9 or 10. Arrived a little late ~6:40pm & no room in small car park. There is a public one nearby & overnight stay is £8. You should anticipate paying for this as there was no mention of concessions. I was greeted at the bar & given key & directions to the... More
