I booked an inward facing single room and that's what I got overlooking the car park: no upgrade! It was small and compact on a room-only deal, so I didn't eat at the hotel. There was a wedding party on the evening I arrived but it made no impact upon my stay. Noise seemed to be at a minimum: the...

Have been to this hotel a number of times and it never fails to impress. Food is great and the service is second to none. My other half particularly likes the dancing on a Friday and Saturday night. The rooms are lovely. We had one overlooking the bay - fabulous. We have a caravan and have stayed at the local...

The hotel and golf course is amazing and very posh. The bay itself is stunning first thing in the morning when the sun shines over the water. Beautiful fresh air and just wonderful for a romantic getaway

The hotel is in a beautiful location so the views and walking by the sea and cliffs was phenomenal. We stayed in a sea view room which looked like it had been very recently renovated. The house keeping did let the hotel down e.g we made a huge stain on our sheets by spilling a drink, sheets should have been...

Many visits over the years, however on the last two I put critical reviews regarding the restaurant food on this website. Hotel is immaculate throughout with very professional staff. I am happy to report that the restaurant food on this occasion could not be faulted. The refurbishment of the restaurant has been very well done. I will still make some...
