Second visit to this great location. We stayed in one of the refurbished rooms which was first class. New decor, shower room and beds. The food is mostly locally sourced and the breakfast has a huge selection of healthy choices together with the usual cooked breakfasts. Staff friendly and helpful. Fantastic location.

Lovely Hotel with lots of character. We had a beautiful room on the top floor overlooking the bay, wonderful views. The hotel is being refurbished over the next year. Staff were all very polite, food excellent, cleanliness first class. Lovely walks down to the bay. Could not fault this hotel & will be coming back.

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights with my husband at the end of March. What a lovely hotel, the bedrooms have recently been refurbished and are in excellent decorative order. Our room looked out over the sea and had a gigantic super kingsize bed. Breakfast was included which was very nice and the hotel also has a small cafe... More

We had a fantastic Easter break. Booked in for a self guided walking holiday. Our room(21) overlooked the bay, lovely view. Big comfortable bed, great decor. The food quality is superb. The walkers choose the sandwich/baguette filling they would like the day before, you then have the best choice of homemade sausage rolls, crisps, fruit, energy bars, chocolate , cheese.....too...

Perfect retreat even though we weren't on a walking holiday. All the staff are welcoming, friendly and very helpful. Would definitely recommend. The grounds are beautiful, direct walk down to the sea. Play area for children. Variety of lounge rooms for relaxing in the evening and the evening meals were very good.

Old country house in a beautiful location. Our original room (me and a 5yo) was above the communal area which gets very busy in the evenings but we were moved to the top floor with minimal fuss when we asked to change rooms. Staff very attentive and pleasant. Hotel has a playground and a lovely view of the bay, lots... More

Give this one a chance because at first sight on going through the door it looked a bit dated and almost as one would imagine an older Nursing Home.(Very patterned carpet) Nevertheless we persevered and although dated ( I really don't mind an old fashioned bathroom suite as long as it is sparkling, which it was) we found the spacious...

An all-inclusive walking holiday at Freshwater Bay is excellent, though people can and do use the hotel for bed & breakfast too. The hotel may be a little tired (though it is having a revamp this winter), but the quality of service more than makes up for that. The food (especially the breakfasts) is second-to-none.
