This hotel is in a great location, with views overlooking Porthminster Beach; however the hotel is in need of modernisation and is a little dated. The rooms are adequate, but the bathroom in the room we were in is in need of some TLC, with old wallpaper that is peeling off in places, and there was patches of damp in the bathroom too. The food is good with a reasonable choice on the menu every night, and the portions are quite generous; the breakfast is self-service for the cereal/juices etc., then a cooked breakfast is served at the table. The dining rooms are big but the tables are too close together, and it is difficult to move between them without disturbing other diners.
One thing that sets this hotel apart from others we have stayed in is the quality of the staff. The reception staff are realy friendly and helpful; nothing is too much trouble for them and it was a pleasure dealing with them. The waiters and waitresses are equally as good as the reception staff, the waitress we had was fast and efficient and was always smiling. I can recommend this hotel for a short break for anybody who is fairly mobile; for anybody less mobile this is not a good place to stay. It is on a hill and there is no wheelchair ramp to the entrance.
