We just wanted a few days to get some sea air and couldn't have picked a better place. Convenient location, lovely welcome, great staff, good sized room, excellent breakfast, combined with the most amazing hake for dinner. Could ask for no more...other than a few more days! Certainly recommend.

We met at the Royal beacon for a family mothers day gathering. The staff were all very attentive and welcoming. The food was brilliant and very reasonably priced. I would throughly recommend for a Sunday lunch and will be returning soon. Thanks again to all the staff at the Royal Beacon.

We stayed for 4 nights and found the staff and restaurant excellent although the menu stayed the same and hake was on the menu but always not available although on two occasions they offered cod instead which was delicious. We would have welcomed a chef's special each night to give us more reason to look forward to our evening meal....

Whilst visiting we heard other guests talk of the low grade courtyard rooms in a disparaging way. Our room, although small was very clean and most adequate. The...

We booked in today for lunch with the family. All staff were so welcoming and very attentive. The roast was the best I have had for a very long time. The beef was melt in your mouth, finished off with just an amazing Lemon Posset. The dinning room looked lovely. Thank you very much to all of you for a...

Wonderful bedroom looking out to the water. Great helpful staff. Good food in the bar and very nice brekky. Only drawback was the heating was not on. Very cold day and draughty old windows didnt help, but for us well worth it for the view. Although the Hotel is in need of a bit of tlc, thats partly why we...
