Well appointed, lovely house. Spacious, comfortable rooms. Large kitchen with outstanding range of equipment. Pretty gardens. Has a bar room which was a great room to gather in the evening. Close to lots of beaches and places to visit. Shops nearby.

We have a large family so we rented the entire hotel as a self catering rental. The hotel is full of character and a little tired in parts. Could do with some light restoration work to bring the spec up. With all this in mind, when you are with family nothing else matters. It was a short drive to the... More

Although not a huge menu, the food was well presented and very tasty, with generous portions. The staff were flexible about providing children's portions too. Only downside was the lack of vegetables on the menu.

We popped in here on an afternoon for a drink with a view of looking at the menu to potential eat there later that evening whilst stopping at Cedar House. When ordering at the bar I asked what local ale's they had and was informed they had Tetleys on draught and a number of locally bottled ales. So far so... More

not a lot to say but we have eaten here a few times in the past but our meal was terrible and the staff who i think was the owner seemed very uninterested.

We had been here several times before but it has gone downhill. The "diningroom" is now a lean-to at the back of the bar rather than the characterful room with the inglenook fireplace which appears to have been purloined for overnight guests. When we went on the 13th August we were told that there was "no ice left" to go... More

We pulled over here on the way to Butlins as our son who is 8 today needed to go to toilet. The signs say its open to non residents. My husband asked politely to use the toilet for our son, a man closed the toilet door and said no! You state you provide good customer service as a national judge... More

We were recommended to try this restuarant, but found it very disappointing. The food was expensive and not good. We would not go again unless we heard they had made changes.

We stayed at the hotel recently for a birthday week away and had a great time in wisteria cottage (well recommended) and decided to try some other local pubs for food rather than eat in, if nothing else than for a change of scenery. How wrong could we be. So many of the pubs nearby just didn't cut it when... More
