We paid £310. Per night for our room with a sea view . The room was disappointing for the money , the shower didn't work properly the knob kept falling off and it was difficult to keep a constant temperature. The bathroom fan made an irritating high pitch wine and there were no heat pads on the mirror so it... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location overlooking Coombesgate Beach. Views from the lounge, dining room, bedrooms and terrace are wonderful in sunshine or showers. We stayed for six nights on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis. As mentioned in other reviews the restaurant menu does begin to repeat itself every three or four days. We fancied a change and...

All got better the following morning with a power cut and no running water leading to us being offered a continental breakfast consisting of dried cereal which we witnessed... More

We stayed as a family of 6 with parents 3 children and a grandparent in the family rooms numbered 41 and 42. The rooms were lovely with sea views and very large terraces which were interlinked.

Really glad we stayed here. My wife loved the interior design which was elegant and stylish. Amazing view of the perfect beach below. Fantastic staff (special shout to Harriet who must be the hotels best asset). Would be nice to have a selection of hard and foam surfboards for guests to take down to the beach but still a great...

Just one night was not nearly enough. The views of the rocks sand and sea are superb. The beach demands a walk or more energetic activity. The food is excellent and the staff efficient and personable. As good as it gets!

On holiday in Devon and came across this hotel, the sun terrace which overlooks the bay was inviting so we stopped. Two alcoholic beverages were around £10. Staff were friendly and courteous. We were non residents but still felt welcomed. A lovely way to spend an hour looking at the sea and enjoying the relaxed ambiance.

Three courses for £45 with four choices for each course. Not the lowest budget but the quality and service made it great value. Fine dining but not overly stuffy. We tried... More

The seaward side of the hotel offers one long, uninterrupted panorama and whether you're reading the paper in the lounge or dining in the restaurant you can enjoy the most wonderful views of the sea and rolling surf. The very best pocket sprung beds; thick, luxurious duvets; crisp white linen and superior memory foam pillows ensure a comfortable night's sleep. The table d'hote and bistro restaurants offer a high standard of cuisine. 2 AA rosette awarded many of the ingredients are locally sourced. On the hotel's doorstep is one of the country's best surfing beaches; a top links golf course. For the ramblers - the hotel could not be better placed with scenic National Trust land that surround the hotel and beautiful coastal footpaths to Morte Point and Lee. ... more   less
