What a wonderful hotel! Friendly helpful staff, lovely lounge areas and bedroom with superb views of the sea and the food was excellent - so tasty. The restaurant was also incredibly helpful and accommodating with my gluten-free requirements - bliss! Perfect location for fantastic coastal walks - we didn't go near the car in 4 days! Thoroughly recommended!

Meals in both the Bistro and Restaurant were excellent, predinner drinks...

Booked a room for a night as was attending a wedding...the hotel location and staff I could not fault...what was disappointing is we were allocated a bedroom with no window just a circular light channel which shed next to no light. We felt like we were in a tomb...it was overwhelmingly claustrophobic and we had a terrible and uncomfortable sleep....

Rude staff, poor quality food, unclean rooms. Staff were very rude on both times we stayed, particularly the breakfast staff. Bathroom was unclean with brown stains in the bath. Complained to reception, was just shrugged at and asked when we were leaving. Never been treated like it. Never staying again. There are better places down the road.
