We had dinner here last Thursday on the recommendation of a friend. We have been lucky enough to eat at some of the worlds most acclaimed restaurants under the supervision of some truly talented chefs. What Chris the chef and his team are creating at the Driftwood is easily a match if not surpasses previous experiences and they all should be immensely proud. This is a chef to follow, and I have no doubt his second Michelin star is not far away. thank you from us both for creating absolute magic. Our thanks also to Stuart and his team of very dedicated, knowledgeable and professional staff who understood so well the essence of fine dining.

Driftwood sits in a beautiful location overlooking the sea & has a rather colonial feel. It's small, cosy, has great staff & is very comfortable to stay in. The Michelin star restaurant is 1st class, & this in itself is worth a visit. The menu was well balanced & very enjoyable without being pretentious. The only observation would be that we wonder how much it changes, & we were surprised the tasting menu repeated a lot of the dishes on the main menu rather the trial new. But this is a great place to dine & stay, & we will definitely return for a treat next year.

Room Tip: Get a sea view, & ask about the room size as ours, in the main building, was small.

After reading many rave reviews on Trip Advisor we arrived with high expectations which often means at least some disappointment. On this occasion at the Driftwood I can only say our expectations were not only met but exceeded. I think other reviews have already expressed our thoughts.

We stayed 2 nights at Dridtwood towards the end of March. The hotel, the staff, the location, the food, the welcome cannot be bettered. Very much a low key relaxing type of hotel without any 'fuss'. The hotel exists for one reason - to look after the guests and to give them a tremenous relaxing experience. Very good value, will certainly return, cannot recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: We had the smallest (and cheapest) room and it was fine.

Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Whilst we were been shown around our luggage was whisked to our room and was sign of the perfect service for the whole weekend.Our room had lovely sea views although beware of low beems in this room on the second floor (I think it was room 7). In low season the rate includes dinner and food was wonderful, my wife has a mushroom allergy and the staff were so careful to ensure she would be fine. Breakfast like dinner was superb and gave us the challenge of finding a very light lunch between the two.
We will definately be going back, the only question is how soon.
