We booked with friends after seeing an offer in Sainsbury magazine and paid £145.00 for dinner, bed and breakfast for two. The bedrooms are clean and quiet, the bed was very comfortable and there were some nice touches in the room such as a beach bag and books for guests use. There was plenty of hot water in the bathroom, good quality toiletries and robes.
The staff were all friendly and curtious. We enjoyed a five course tasting menu which was excellent and clearly used local ingredients, there was a good selection of wines to choose from and the wines we had with dinner were all excellent quality and reasonably priced. The only slight let down was that at the end of the meal we ordered cheese which was a bit disappointing, especially at £7.50 per person, perhaps we should have asked what the cheeses were beforehand. They were probably local cheeses and we had expected the waiting staff to tell us as they had taken the time to explain our tasting menu in great detail at the start of the meal, perhaps after a busy night all they wanted to do was go home. We all had cooked breakfast the next morning which again was excellent. Unfortunately we did not have time to explore the area on this occasion but would definately consider a return visit and a walk along the beach next time.
