Another lovely stay at the headland. Great food and lovely staff, can't wait to visit again. Travelled with my 13 year old son, who loves the headland, even went in the pool! Food very good with a good choice every night, very enjoyable stay

Thank you very much for your review of the hotel. I am very glad to hear that your son managed to use our tropically heated pool in April and that you all enjoyed our Chef’s locally sourced cuisine.

We look forward to welcoming you all back to The Headland Hotel again in the near future.

Kind Regards

my holiday at The Headlands Hotel was second to none, all the staff were very helpful, attentive and friendly. The food in the restaurant was amazing. I stayed in room 174 it had a fantastic sea view, I would most definitely stay here again in the future .

Room Tip: room 174 was a family room with beautiful sea view and plenty of space.

we are regular guests at this lovely hotel and very much enjoyed another visit. The children always love using the hotel pool, snooker table and gym. The evening entertainment is great for families with bingo followed by singers, magicians or comedians (its nice to have a dance too). The dining room is wonderful and bright and the menu is very varied, offering good, interesting food. I must mention Tomasz, the restaurant manager, he always has such a professional and friendly manner. The garden is looking very attractive and it would be very relaxing to sit and eat your cream tea here. My family and I are looking forward to our next visit at this lovely hotel with amazing sea views within walking distance to Meadfoot Beach.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front have such lovely seaviews especially the second floor

I would like to start by thanking you for taking the time to write this lovely review after your recent stay with us here at The Headland, it is great to hear that the children enjoyed themselves as well and the tropically heated swimming pool and other leisure facilities were well used.

Our varied entertainment program does have some very good local artists and I am happy to hear that this was enjoyed by all.

I have shown Tomasz your comments and he is pleased that you enjoyed your restaurant experiences and it is good that the varying menu was pleasurable.

We are all very glad that you are going to be returning to stay with us again and look forward to welcoming you back again.

Thank you once again and kindest regards

It is great to hear that the standards that you experienced on your latest return trip to the Headland were spot on and that as returning guests you are looking to get back again very soon.

I am pleased to hear that the room was impressive and the lovely views across to Thatcher Rock were enjoyed.

The chefs do produce a good varied menu each evening with locally sourced products when possible and I thank you for the nice comments as well as those about the friendly and helpful staff.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.
