The hotel is not too prepossessing from the beach side point of view, but once inside all this is forgotten. The main hospitality interior is really nicely furnished and decorated with a lovely garden and a stunning sea frontage and view, the suites are especially spacious and the staff are absolutely delightful even if they get somewhat panic stricken in...

This has to be one of the best hidden gems on the north coast. We have stayed here so many times and have never been disappointed. Old school hospitality, wonderful familiar family holiday. What a special spot. The retention of staff over all these years means something special. And this is a truly special spot.

A perfect place for a beach and relax vacation. The staff is wonderful, even though they seem to struggle somewhat against strange logistics. The food left little to want for, to very reasonable prices. The view is magnificent. The long beach and the tidal pools offer something for everyone. The water at perfect temperature and the sound if the waves... More

We spent 5 nites at Salt Rock Hotel. Here are 5 comments: 1. The Rooms- you get what you pay for, clean and with a great view. 2. The Food - great Currys! And the rest is above par as well. 3. The Beaches - Just great! Even our teens were sold! 4. The Smokers - This is a LET-DOWN!... More

A lovely venue for families and couples. Gorgeous views. Mostly very helpful and accommodating staff. The bar staff need to get with the program. They always seem to have something better to do. The buffet could do with a bit more imagination. After 7 days of the same food it all gets a bit much.

Second stay and all I can say is that this hotel is outstanding when it comes to service. Had a conference for 20 people and they really were excellent hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. This hotel is really value for money and situated on the beach. Rooms are huge and have a bar and lounge area. They also offer... More

The decorations is stunning right throug the place, it is a stunning venue also and the same regarding the gardens. The service was not good at all and i did not enjoy my food either. But still love the setting. The smoking area was dissapointing!

I reviewed this hotel last year and I am pleased to say that nothing has changed. It is still a well-run, clean and friendly, family orientated hotel. The food at the buffet is ample and delicious, the pool area is relaxing and shady, and the tidal pool just outside the hotel is well looked after. All rooms have magnificent sea... More

My son and I stayed here for 2 nights . We had a lovely time and the view and position is excellent . It's an old style hotel which is why I booked it and the staff are super friendly and the service is excellent . I could have stayed longer. The rooms are adequate though a bit dated but... More
