“Great hotel, great service, great view, great room...”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We stayed in room 16 of the Beach at Bude for our honeymoon in April 2013 and we're so glad we chose this beautiful place to stay. The room was blissful, the view was so relaxing, the service was attentive without being intrusive and the bar was a great place to chill out.

The breakfast was a very high standard and the setting each morning (looking out over the bay) made each day get off to the perfect start. After breakfast, we sat in the huge comfy sofas in the bar and read the papers over a cup of coffee while we planned our day. Bude is in relatively easy reach of places like Padstow, Tintagel and the Eden Project, all places that we visited during our stay.

After our days out, it was a joy to come back to the hotel to be greeted by friendly staff while we enjoyed a drink in the bar before heading up to our room to watch the sun set over the bay. The hotel had everything you could wish for in its rooms - TV, DVD player (with plenty of discs to chose from), a safe and an incredibly comfortable king-size bed.

We wouldn't hesitate to return to the Beach at Bude.

Room Tip: Room 16 was extremely spacious. The shower was worth the money alone! Modern decor, beautiful view a...

Not stayed there , just went for a drink at the bar. Wow, Bude so needs such an amazing place to be able to go and have a glass of wine or a cocktail in an upmarket stunningly decorated place with fantastic views from both outside on the wonderful terrace or indoors . Very friendly staff. Superb quality everything . Ten out ten . Classy . Good luck. It deserves to do really well .

I had 1 night at the hotel I had room 3 which was fantastic. Whilst no sea view it does have a super bathroom with large bath, double shower and a big king sized bed. The hotel was clean and modern throughout. The bar/ lounge area was very relaxing with a fire for a chilly day and newspapers. For a sunny day there is a great sun terrace with stunning views over the bay. The breakfast was great with fresh fruit, cereal and cooked breakfast options. All the staff were extremely friendly.

If only every small town had one of these!

My husband and I have stayed at The Beach twice, in September 2012 and February 2013. We thoroughly enjoyed both visits and certainly intend to visit again. The hotel is decorated to a very high standard throughout. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast menu is delicious, fresh fruit, juices, yoghurts, cereals, smoked salmon & scrambled eggs, full cornish breakfast, lots of toast and jams, creamy porridge... all served in the comfortable restaurant with views of the sea. If you are looking somewhere special to stay in Bude then this is the place for you. Cannot wait to return.

My wife and I stayed here for one night and we were both incredibly impressed. The room was chique and very spacious with amazing views over the beach. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful so a huge thanks to them for making our stay so wonderful. We ate a lovely evening meal at the "Life's a Beach" restaurant which is a 1 minute walk away from the hotel and this is to be highly recommended also.

Bude itself has much to offer. Not only the beach itself but the stunning coastal and canal walks. There are lots of great places to eat, whether for a proper sit down meal or snacks, coffee and cakes!

My wife and I are definitely staying again :-)

Stayed here for 1 night last last. Lovely lady welcomed us and showed us to our room. The room was gorgeous, very spacious with fantastic views over to the beach. Bathroom was huge and completed to an extremely high specification. Cannot find any fault at all. Breakfast this morning was amazing and same lady looked after us (Manageress I'd imagine). Overall I'd highly recommend the quality of this hotel, the location and the staff. Fantastic.

Yes, there are cheaper places to stay in Bude. Frankly, don't bother.

This lovely boutique hotel has three top notch things going for it.

Firstly, its location is excellent. We were lucky enough to be staying in Room 16 (for goodness' sake, get it if you can - it's wonderful!). This meant that we had a superb view of the bay. Don't worry if you don't get a high up sea view though - the conservatory breakfast room and bar has a wonderful view - exactly like they have in all their literature - and it's smashing.

Secondly, the quality of the hotel itself. From fixtures and fittings, furniture, build quality, contemporary styling and high quality beds through to the loveliest bathrooms I've seen in a very long time, this hotel wouldn't look out of place in a high end central London location - only it's better, of course, because it's nowhere near London! They've managed to make the place feel both contemporary and welcoming and comfortable all at the same time, and it's quite a difficult thing to manage.

Thirdly, and most importantly, the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. They often went above and beyond without even having to be asked, and every single request we made was accommodated quickly and efficiently. Not only that, but all of this was done with genuine, welcoming smiles and attitudes. These people don't just pay lip service to quality service - they deliver it. Better than that, they deliver it as human beings rather than over-trained automatons, and we really felt from the beginning to the end of our stay that we were genuinely welcome, and they were taking as much pleasure from us being there as we were taking in being there ourselves.

In short, if it's within your price range, stay here. You'll not be disappointed! Ifit's just out of your price range, then eat fish and chips at the Mermaid fish bar of an evening, and bring it in to your price range! Worth every penny.

Room Tip: Room 16 is amazing.
