Me and my Fiancee stayed here for 2 nights in December for our birthdays (both 1 day apart) and it was amazing. The staff where very friendly and helpful. Although we where surprised to see mac and cheese on the menu, the food was magnificent. If your a big eater (like us) make sure you order some extra sides. On...

Very happy with the whole experience. Accommodation during the conference was very comfortable. The bar and restaurant staff were very hospitable and helpful. The pool facility was an added bonus. The conference facilities made it a very fluid experience. Would definitely use again.

The staff are very attentive (not sure how appropriate a top hat is in rural Devon by the beach). The room overlooked the beach & was a good size, good storage, lovely bathroom & with the towelling dressing gowns that are de rigeur. Pool & therapy rooms looked good, too. The Art Deco feel, with mirrored furniture on the landing,...

We got a good last minute deal for dinner, B&B and were put in a lovely sea-facing room. One of the best hotel views I have experienced in the UK. A couple of things we...

Atmospheric and immaculate decor and generous public rooms. Great indoor pool. Helpful and capable staff. Room small but comfortable and well equipped. Can't fault it and sorry to have to go at the end of the conference I was attending.
