I stayed at 'The Port Light Hotel' in early December as a suprise walking holiday for my husband. I chose the Hotel after searching for days, looking for a hotel that would give us stunning views and many a days walking, I was not dissapointed!
We arrived at the hotel to be welcomed by an outstanding sunset right over the bay, towards Cornwall. To our delight when we reached our room we discovered we could even see the sun set (or rise!) whilst lying in bed!
Our room was large and very clean - so much that my husband didnt realise it was a pet friendly hotel untill he read the brouchure in our room, needless to say he was very pleased with my choice! After a relaxing bath in one of the largest hotel bathrooms I have ever experienced on my many walking holidays in Devon, we set out for dinner in the Hotel's Restaurant and Bar.
Although I knew in that the Hotel was 'pet friendly' I was still suprised to find no hint of dog in the Restaurant/Bar area other than the well behaved few I saw at their owners feet. I was also pleased, as I am not a dog owner, to find that there was an 'exclusive non doggy area'. Which was spacious with a very relaxed atmousphere.
When it came to ordering our food every night it was a complete challenge to only choose one of the delicious meals! I had a completely different, gorgeous meal ever night of the week, beginning with 'Famous Steak and Guinnes Pie' on my first night to 'Bigbury Bay Plaice' on my last.Not fogetting the luxury desserts! All I can say to make myself feel less guilty is that im glad the hotel is so close to the coastal path for relaxing(although at times, challenging!) walks during the day.
After our evening meal it was lovely to be able to retire to the comfy sofa's, right infront of a toasty log burner to enjoy our coffee!
This hotel certainly lives up to its description of being a 'Walkers Paradise', I will be visiting again in the near future, hopefully for a spring walking break to burn off the christmas excess!
