Recommended by friends who stayed here recently. Can't fault anything. The room was excellent. Spotless with everything in it you could wish for. Huge comfortable bed. Evening meal to die for followed by breakfast next morning. Very pleasant staff. Only wish I had taken my bathing costume for the hot tub.

On route to ferry port at 9am it made the ideal breakfast stop. Excellent food and very attentive and polite staff. Decor slightly dated but it was clean and tidy

I ate several times at the restaurant attached to the hotel: service was lovely, food very good and price reasonable (2 courses 17, 3 courses 21,50). I would suggest goat cheese and sea bass.

Nice lunch as usual, large house red under a fiver, Caesar salad v good. Lady waitress nice and friendly but still professional. One area for improvement is the gents. Cubicle could not be locked, insulating tape across the wall electrical switch, several holes in the wall where it seems hand driers etc taken off. Generally needs redecorated. Hope this helps,...

Eaten here a few times times during a recent stay (plus breakfasts) and my only disappointment is that I wasn't staying longer so I could have tried other items on the menu. The food was all delicious, some of the best we've eaten. It's a nice, well run, unfussy restaurant. Good portion size too. The staff are great, efficient and... More

I used the restaurant while staying at the hotel. The staff were excellent and attentive without hovering. The food was good but not excellent. I found my fish main course rather oily, however, the starter was good. I would like to try the restaurant again but perhaps with a meat main course.

We visited the Woodland Bay twice during our stay as they were dog friendly & happily welcomed our 3 furry friends. The lunch there was very well presented & good value & on our 2nd visit we just went for a coffee but were then tempted by their scones which were just out of the oven & were excellent. On... More
