We stayed during the autumn school half-term break and were surprised how quiet the area was, the hotel included (we had the whole top floor to ourselves).
The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Breakfast was full and proper (best fried bread ever), well cooked and served in a very relaxed setting.
The dining room has beautiful sea & coastal views, as did our rooms.
What we really liked about this little gem of a hotel was the fact that it was not pretentious in any way. Everything was basic, yet sufficient and pleasant, yet exactly right. (the only thing we couldn't get working was one of the TVs, probably because we pressed the wrong buttons, but we soon gave up, as who would want to watch the box if you can wonder downhill to the town and eat & drink the local produce?
The staff were brilliant - nothing was too much trouble.
We had a great time here and would not hesitate in booking again.
One thing to be aware of is the narrow road to the hotel. If you miss this and carry on up the hill (as we did, of course) you'd better have a suitable car to navigate the very steep hill before you reach Station Hill!
