Lovely clean room, comfy bed. Felt relaxed the minute we checked in. Met and checked in by very friendly staff. The food at and service at Chi is first class, we have been here on several occassions and the quality of the food & service is amazingly consistent, which is one of the reasons we return. The Earl of Devon and Lady Devon were also eating at Chi the same night. After dinner we relaxed in the bar. We can't recommend Chi enough and thank the owners Stephen & Sui and all of the staff for the warm welcome we received each time we stay. Chi is ideal for couples, families and business travellers.

Superb value for money for both the accommodation and dinner in the evening. We have already booked again for later in the year and would recommend this restaurant with rooms to anyone who enjoys good very clean accommodation with the advantage of wonderful cuisine under the same roof. By the way, the staff were most pleasant, polite, courteous and efficient.

Room Tip: If you prefer not to have seagulls waking you in the early hours, try closing the window. Our experi...

Accommodation was clean and comfortable but a bit basic (not luxury!) evening meal was tasty with unusual chinese dishes. Lovely restaurant a bit more special than your usual Chinese. Been a couple of times for the food since we stayed. You have to pay extra for breakfast and pre order the night before. You can choose to have chinese breakfast or an English one. We were still too full for either! Toffee apple dessert was fab! Not sure I would go every week but once a year would be enough for me.

Room Tip: Not above restaurant as noisy!

We stayed from fri to sunday as it was my wife's birthday
The owners and staff were first class, we couldnt wish for a better place to stay and eat. The food was first class along with the service. The room was spotlessly clean, neat and had everything we needed and more. We shall be back! also recommending to all our friends family. Thankyou Mr & Mrs Choy, family and staff for making our stay an enjoyable experience, we shall definately be back! x

We stayed for two nights in the small double and a single room. Very clean and pleasant rooms. The business is mainly an AA four star graded chinese restaurant with B&B and you need to be prepared to specify what you want for breakfast the night before - and the time you want it between 8.30 - 9/30am. There is a 15% discount on eating at the restaurant (closed on Mondays) and I would highly recommend doing this - stylish surroundings, delicious food and the service fantastic. I don't know what the problem was with the review which mentioned a problem with male staff. All staff I met were helpful and very polite.
