    We only had dinner at the Duke of Marlborough Hotel which has a wonderful charm in the decor but found the food to be disappointing, over salted dishes and a dry or a reheated main course. Having planned this wedding anniversary date for some time,...More

    We visited this hotel for a pre dinner drink as a group of ladies on a girls weekend away. We would have had a meal but we hadn't pre booked and the place was full. It made great atmosphere for our cocktails before dinner.

    We stopped in on a chilly and sunny winter day. The service was great. The seafood chowder was delicious. Oysters were superb. Good place to relax and eat. Nice views also. I would definitely return next time I am up there.

    We had a family birthday dinner here. Amazing staff.... amazing. They made my 4 yr old newphew a bubay cocktail. Which he loved, then accidentally dropped all over the entrance floor. Staff were so great about it. As for the food.... YUMMMMMMM Can't recommend it...More

    The staff were great and the location was right on the water. We stayed in a cottage and it was clean and comfortable. The cottage was a bit dated, but it had a small kitchen, living room and bedroom.
