We stayed here for two nights arriving bank holiday Monday. We took advantage of the May 20% off midweek offer and were delighted to hear we had been upgraded to a suite when we arrived. The staff were friendly and attentive, the whole place very tastefully decorated and the room lovely. The seaside suite was spacious and bright with a lovely bay window.
The view from breakfast room/restaurant was beautiful over the countryside. The breakfast was really delicious with quality ingredients (full English, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs). We ate in the restaurant on our first night (it was understandably closed the second night after the busy bank holiday weekend). The food was really impressive (though my portion of sea bass rather small). 'd recommend the scallops with pea puree and the wine was exceptional.
There is an honesty bar in the hotel though we didn't make use of it. Nice idea but as it was quiet perhaps not as much atmosphere as some of the local pubs. Great for a night cap though I am sure.
The walk to the cove itself is short (though very dark at night walking back from the pub!) and the whole surroundings stunning...especially in the amazing weather we had!
I would definitely stay again and would eat in the restaurant too.
